We found Burghleys to be both helpful and proactive in our search for our first property and appeared to fully appreciate our budget and other requirements. They also engaged positively in the purchase process, seeking to move all sides forward where they could....

Very happy overall with the service of this agent. The communication was consistent throughout the process, and we are extremely happy with the property we rented. Our only negative comment is they could manage their service with a more welcoming and friendly approach. Going into the office was a bit of a miserable affair. Professional and direct though. Would recommend....

We recently let a property from Burghleys. Although we were in a hurry to close and move in, the transaction was as stress free as possible. Both Ashley and Howard (and Luke) have been professional, efficient and pleasant to deal with to date. They have supplied clear information in well organised packs -- not a random dribble of emails and letters from different people. Ashley also took time to explain each document and how things like the DPS work and the landlords legal obligations in relatio...

I recently bough a property through Burghleys. They applied an undue pressure throughout the whole process crossing the boundaries of their responsibilities and querying the matters that one considers to be the solicitor's responsibility. I was constantly hassled by them via phone or e-mails, including my solicitor. I was also completely misinformed about a particular matter, which cost me more money in the conveyancing process. I felt being bullied and pressurised on a number of instances espe...

We are somewhat surprised to receive these comments from you. Firstly, the only reason you received more calls than usual from us was as a direct result of your solicitor's failure to communicate with the seller's solicitors, ourselves and, ironically you! May we courteously remind you that you complained to us on several occasions during this transaction as to the performance of your solicitors. You also conceded that you chose to appoint the solicitors that acted for you against our initia....

As a new landlord I was glad I chose Burghley's. I chose Burghley's because of their good online reviews and they certainly lived up to the high standards as the No.1 in Kentish Town. I was impressed by their approach which friendly, knowledgeable without being too pushy. They provided material which sets out their charges clearly. This document is transparent and accurate. Although the search for tenant was longer than anticipated, it yielded ideal tenants. Without Ashley's advice I may have b...

After 2 years of renting in London and having to move again my housemate and I were a bit fed up with having to deal with smarmy estate agents bending the truth about their properties. So we were so relieved when we stumbled upon Burghleys almost by accident. Ashley and Howard have acted as both our estate agents and landlords and have provided the most hassle-free experience I've ever had with renting. Moving in went smoothly and in a good way we didn't have to have much contact with them after...

I bought a flat from Burghleys and then appointed them to find tenants. They completed both tasks very efficiently and delivered on the expectations they'd given me. They are a great deal more professional than most estate agents. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. I would particularly single out Ashley for his sensitive handling of both transactions....

We have used Burghleys twice to sell properties and each time they went over and above in their service. They were clear about the strategy they would use to value, market and sell our properties. On both occasions they were able to achieve sales within a week and each time securing over the asking price. The team at Burghleys have always been professional and approachable even when not under instruction. On many occasions we have contacted them for their opinions and advise about the local mar...

We were fortunate to find the property we wanted to buy almost as soon as we began our search. As our financial arrangements were tied into probate this meant patience on all sides as we organised everything through the executor. At every stage Howard knew when to hurry things along and when to gives us the space to sort matters out. Excellent service....

I have just exchanged and would very much like to commend Burghleys on all their hard work. They kept the deal on track and helped it reach completion in a satisfactory manner for everyone involved. Despite many hiccups on the way with the buy, I felt the Burghleys team were always available to allow quick discussions, prompt responses and they consistently maintained a honest and professional approach to everything they did. A pleasure to work with and I would happily recommend to anyone....

As a landlord in N7, I have rented through Burghleys for 14 years and they have always been excellent in every way- quick, responsive, polite, efficient and effective. They know the area and the market. They have found tenants and screened them for me. They advise me on rental prices. They alert me to any issue at the property. They organise running repairs without me having to bat an eyelid. They lay on regulatory checks to utilities whenever necessary. They send me clear monthly invoices as so...

I originally bought my flat through Burghleys and when I decided to sell, they were my immediate choice, as they are local, independently run, professional, and provide great customer service. They moved really quickly to get the flat on the market (within a few days) as I needed to move fast to make an offer on another property I'd seen, which I greatly appreciated. They organised and conducted all the showings really effectively to minimise any disruption, and then gave sound advice on my opti...

We had been having a nightmare trying to sell our place with a different agent. They had it for four months and couldn't secure a sale. The best we'd had was way below asking. We needed a result to have our own offer accepted and switched to Burghleys who provided a very competitive percentage. Within just one week we had three competing buyers and ended up almost 10% higher than asking. Amazing result. From there everything proceeded smoothly to completion....

Agent Fees

We have no set fees. We prefer to discuss fees direct with the client when valuing the relevant property.

Unlike the majority of our competitors we do not tie down clients to restrictive sole agency agreements being anything up to six months.

We firmly believe that if the client is happy with the service that we are providing they will continue marketing their property through us. We only ask for 28 days notice to terminate any agreement between us.

Complaints Procedure

There are two resident partners in the business, one of which predominantly deals with lettings, the other with sales.

Should their be a complaint in relation to lettings, the sales partner will deal with the matter accordingly and vice versa.

All written complaints will be acknowledged in writing within 24 working hours and responded to in writing 7 working days.

Burghleys are voluntary members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme. In the unlikely event that a complaint cannot be resolved, the complainant can request that The Ombudsman take their complaint further.
