Long standing customer of Crook and Blight previously selling and more recently renting as a landlord. I found this site through google and was very surprised at some of the reviews. They have always been very honest and very proffessional and I can't recommend them highly enough. PS I agree with the last reviewer, it's their job to make sure my house is looked after well, I'd rather they were strict with the tenants than let them get away with murder. Jo....

I don\'t usually comment on these sites but I\'ve just read a review by a tenant and the things they complain about are the reasons I\'ve trusted crook and blight for so long. I want my agent to check the house regularly! I want my agent to do a detailed inventory of the house! I want them to be strict during the moving out. I\'ve got a friend and their agent gave the person the bond back because they didn\'t want to challenge them. I want my agent to chase the rent if it isnt paid! I always rec...

Very helpful to start, once you\'ve handed over the admin fees the harass you with phone calls, letters and emails. They inspect properties every 4 months .... Invasion of privacy if you ask me?! I don\'t want a stranger going through my house. I don\'t pay a bond to wreck the place?! Inventory is very picky down to small scuffs, when moving out they are even more picky - even trying to put things that aren\'t included in the inventory to take money off your bond! One estate agent, turns up In ...

It sounds like they've just been looking after the landlord's property correctly! As a landlord I'd be delighted!....

I have sold and bought houses through Crook & Blight in the past and have always received a good service so when I needed to rent my house out I naturally went with them. What a mistake!! My tenants have always paid their rent on time. However I never receive it within the 5 days that C & B alleged I would when I signed up to them!! I constantly waste time & money every month ringing them to chase up the rent and always receive some excuse. It takes weeks and weeks of my ringing them...

I have both purchased and sold several houses with Crook and Blight over the last 10 years, I have always found them to be highly experience, efficient, polite, punctual and extremely competitive. All of their team from owner to office team are well-mannered and passionate about what they are doing. I would not hesitate in the future to purchase or sell with them again. I thoroughly recommend and suggest that you speak to them directly if you are looking to do either in the future....

Well, where to begin.... to start with they didn't tell the original tenants of our viewing, they didn't bother turning up for the viewing, they missed an appointment to sign contracts without warning, they rang my fiance at work via her HQ when she explicitly told them not to, Mr Crook who was there to hand over keys was impatient and had no knowledge of the property. While we were with them service was awful: rude, incompetent and slow. Since leaving things haven't even got better, as they fai...

All I can say is that I've got 5 houses with Crook and Blight which have been rented out solidly for 8 years and have had exemplary, personal service throughout. I can only presume you left the place in a state and got annoyed when they took some of your bond! Paul.....

The service offered by Crook and Blight is poor to say the least. They seemed disinterested on most occasions, downright rude on others and lacked knowledge both of the properly they were trying to let and the current legislation relating to lettings on all occasions. On no occasion during my attempt did they contact me - they clearly expected me to chaise them. I never go a direct answer to a question they were always evasive to say the least. In the end I gave up and went elsewhere. T...

Come on, these first two are clearly fake reviews. Look at the names. Probably by one of the other agents and I have a pretty good idea. I've been selling and letting through Crook & Blight for 10 years and have never known them to be anything less than knowledgeable, attentive and always effective. Which is a lot more than I can say for some of the other local agents.....

What sellers pay this agent to do is beyond me. As a former estate agent, I would be appalled if my company provided such a dire level of service to its vendors and prospective purchasers alike. One word describes this company and it's lazy. I have viewed 7 properties with this agent and not one of them was accompanied. They do not call back, you have to constantly chase them and to say the staff are lackadaisical would be an understatement of mass proportion. If they offer you a free servic...

As a current seller who carries out my own viewings i wonder if you considered that the reason the appointments are not accompanied is down to the owners wishing to carry them out themselves!!!! Fool. May I also ask where you previously worked as an agent?....
