Agents fees were high and had to pay per tenant, however we had a good service from Black Katz, and fees are high wherever you go. Also didn't take any money from us until we had found and signed for a property we liked.

Hello, I am sad to read your review as I honestly believe I did my best to make it a smooth process for you all.

The date was already agreed between you the tenants and the Landlord, it's not something we can change after a landlord agrees a move in date which you the tenants accepted. If the move in date was p ...
