Although our agent fees are high I believe they are well used. Our building is well maintained. The gardens, the outside of the building, gutters, bins etc are all cleaned like clock work. Recently I spoke to Amanda and she said we have some money over this year and she is looking into using it to have our interior decorated. Cannot fault her efforts

This is a company of charlatans. In 2014 they underspent their service charge budget by around 20%, yet hiked the service charge. Just got the 2016 service charge, again increased, again underspent by 20% in 2015. No money back for the last FOUR years budget under-spend of 20%. They are clearly ...

I don't mind the money they actually spend. Their actual spend seems completely valid to me. I mind that they charge 20% more than this to owners and pocket the difference. Disgusting.

They charge 75% + VAT and provide no discount even on a 26 room portfolio. This works out an average of ‚£378 inc VAT per room on my portfolio. Another reputable local agent charges a fixed fee of ‚£192 inc VAT providing the same service at half the price.
