Both my boyfriend and I have enjoyed renting from Berkley Lettings. They have been organised, helpful and attentive. When we needed maintenance sorting, we were taken seriously and someone would come out within a short space of time to take care of our issue. The ...

At Berkley we take our customer service and customers opinions extremely seriously and we were astonished to read this review. We believe it's a good and decent practise should you have a complaint to raise it with the business and give them the opportunity to review and rectify the complaint first. We never received that in this instance. Further to the review we have been trying to make contact with the client to no avail. Furthermore, an investigation into this was conducted and we found no e ...

The service we received was poor in a number of fundamental respects including not undertaking explicit requests, lack of sales progress information, omission of buyers intention to renegotiate post survey, no support in renegotiation and constant lack ...

1% + vat which is the going rate. We made a reasonable complaint directbto the owners of the Agency, who then ceased contact with us and immediately took us to small claims.

Emma Moore applied for a student tenancy in July 2012 and this tenancy was a Tenant Find Only, meaning that once the initial payments had been made no further contact with our office would have been necessary and contact would have been direct with the Landlord. At no time have I had direct contact with this person. I find it very odd that there has been no contact from Emma Moore since 2012 and yet the date of this review is 19th May 2014, just 3 days ago! People like her should be fined for ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
I was willing to purchase a flat on marsh close and made few offers, however your sales team member declined all my offers without putting my offer to the buyer, i even offered the asking price however your sales team member told us that they have a cash buyer and the seller as accepted there offer, my mortgage was in place and with no chain and with 20% deposit however that should make no difference to a cash buyer as to complete would take the same time, all i wanted to know that my offer was the asking price so why was not my offer put forward too the buyer, if i had a property to sell am sure i wanted the maximum price for my property.

If they were more professional, told the truth and delivered on their promises. But under current circumstances, once we\'ve left this house we will have no further contact with them and certainly not recommend them to anyone we know.
