We have used Caxton's for a number of years to manage our rental property. They have always found very suitable clients in the past .We have now just completed a refurbished,with help from them, & have used Caxton's again. We are so pleased that they have now found the ideal Tennant's that meet our requirements. Thanks to Sarah for all her help, she kept us informed answered all our queries & is always friendly & professional....

Amelia is friendly and efficient. I fell in love with the property we are about to move into and constantly emailed Amelia to enquire whether it was still available. She was helpful and really worked hard for us to enable us to obtain this property which we cannot wait to move into. Thank you Amelia....

My whole experience with Caxtons from start to finish has been friendly, easy and professional. From arranging to view the property to moving in, Sarah was extremely helpful, personable and professional. Any questions or queries were dealt with extremely quickly and no problems arose through the process as Sarah ensured that everything went smoothly. Cannot thank her enough, Sarah made a potentially stressful situation no problem at all. Thank you so much Sarah! :)...

Agent's fees were more reasonable than other agents and I felt (for the first time with a letting agency) that I was being provided a service, as caxtons sorted out everything for me.

As a parent of a student we found Caxton's to be very helpful and with good cooperative landlords any issues were sorted very promptly. We feel the landlord was especially fair in dealing with any issues. Monies were dealt with promptly as well. Special thanks again to Hannah Pout for going the extra in the beginning to help our son find a property. Well done!...

Very helpful and friendly. Both my Fiance and I have found he service to be exceptional. We were given first choice on the property and were sent all relevant paperwork very quickly. The property was removed from the Web very quickly also, which helped to reassure us that it was ours. Another Agent kept on marketing the property and eventually chose someone else, after offering to us. Caxtons did not do this....

I would like to say a massive thank you to Amelia who me and my partner were dealing with when we were looking to rent our first property, we had a stressful time during this period and Amelia made the process very easy so it was one less thing to worry about, she was always open and honest with everything and there have been no horrible surprises, everything was explained in detail and nothing was left out. I would highly recommend Caxtons to find a place to rent, the fees are not extortionate ...

Without a doubt the worst letting agents I have ever had the displeasure to use in Canterbury in the six years I have lived here. The staff were incompetent at all stages, making vital administrative mistakes time after time. This including taking 2 months to replace a completely broken fridge in the middle of summer, sending threatening letters regarding late payments when the payments had been prompt and finally giving us no information on check out. When prompted for information we were told ...

We have a delayed of 25 hours coming from Cyprus to Gatwick and i had no where to stay and i have called her and explained to her the situation.

Caxtons were terrible landlords. They failed to fix dangerous problems with the property, were rude and unhelpful and do not behave in a professional manner even within the confines of their own offices. You will have a battle trying to get any deposits back even though when you move in it is highly likely that the property will be disgusting. So any charges for fabricated 'cleaners' at the end of your tenancy probably go straight to their pockets. They act like a bunch of children in the offic...

I think we are an inconvenience to Gemma Marks, conversely, Hannah Pout is just an awesome person, very respectful. I remember the day I went to sign-up for accommodation, Gemma was just unhelpful and seemed distracted, playful with her other colleagues who seemed embarrassed. It was 4 of us and you had think she had behave appropriately and be helpful, instead she was rude and ended up in arguments where she was not supposed to be concerned. I wonder if the higher tiers of managerial positions ...

They are awful and not only operated with no regard to basic customer service, but they also had little regard for the law! Our deposit was used to pay a bill, which we were not informed of when we signed the contract, this is illegal and a deposit cannot be used in this way. They also emailed us after our check out asking if we had used professional cleaners as the house was so clean. We responded saying we hadn't, they then sent us a cleaning bill as "we hadn't left it clean enough"...

Matthew was extremely helpful in helping us resolve a broken washing machine complaint. From the first phone call to him, the same day he came to check the broken machine, and the following day a workman came to have a look at the machine. With a combination of Matthews help, and an extremely quick and efficient response from our landlord who provided us with a brand new washing machine, the complaint was resolved within 48 hours. On this occasion, we are very impressed with everyone\'s hel...

I have nothing but praise for the way Hannah handled our situation. I am a parent of one of the two students who needed accommodation for 2014/2015. Not not only did she stay late to accommodate them seeing more than the usual number of properties as they were travelling some distance to do so but further delayed leaving by taking them back to the Caxton's office to finalise the paperwork as they were returning home again afterwards. Hannah had also been more than happy to answer my many questio...

Please do not use this agent!! They completely take advantage of student and non student tenants. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. All the staff I ever dealt with were rude and unhelpful, they made NO effort to make my rental experience a good one... I was glad to escape at first possible opportunity. My property was disgusting when I first moved in... in fact I couldn\'t I was told to spend the night elsewhere! This lack of organisation and respect was a continual theme throughout my tenancy and then I lost...

What an awful service! Absolute nightmare trying to get deposit back (even after 3 months of moving out), staff are unhelpful, very rude and don\'t take responsibility. Didn\'t bother to do an inventory prior to the start of tenancy so check-out report was fabricated; landlord is trying to rinse us of the deposit money despite having no evidence. Worst members of staff are Kirk Morris and Olivia Austin as they provide a shameful service- do not be fooled by the fact that this firm is ARLA regist...

We are sorry you are unhappy with the length of time that finalising your deposit return is taking. However, whilst we are committed to providing the best possible service to our clients - both landlords and tenants - issues in dispute do take longer to resolve in order to achieve a mutually amicable conclusion. We will endeavour to settle the issue as soon as possible.....

I rented a student property with Caxtons for one year. It was a year of absolute hell. The staff are rude and nasty. They tell lies and rip off students. We drove 4 hours to find our property was not ready on the day we were due to move in, even though we checked the day before, over the phone. The property was in a mess when we finally got to move in, and had to demand that it was cleaned professionally to remove the complete grime that covered the house. Caxtons staff dealt with this by swea...

Totally agree with all your responses and review. Caxtons are a DREADFUL company - surprised they are still in business, most likely due to the fact they have a monopoly over most of the student housing in Canterbury and can get away with swindling students.....
