Mark recently helped me to buy a flat in N4 and proved that either the bad reputation estate agents have is unwarranted or that there are exceptions to the rule. Mark listened to what I was looking for and didn't waste my time by showing me properties which didn't fit my description. It was ultimately his understanding of my situation and quick-thinking which led Mark to show me a property before it had been listed which I have since gone on to purchase and am delighted with. Mark has great loca...

Davies and Davies were excellent during the sale of my flat. I had it on with two agents, one who charged a higher commission, but Davies and Davies were the ones who sold it, which was great for me! They also seemed more interested and invested in selling it, with better local knowledge. Derek was lovely throughout, always friendly, responsive, giving me updates, helpful advice and moving things along once an offer was agreed. Very appreciated, so thank you Derek, Mark and Svetlana!...

We have been involved with Davies and Davies since 1995 and have found them very professional, personable and helpful. They initially sold our flat for us in 1995. When we moved out of London in 2000 we let our house out through them until 2016. We had a very good relationship with Laurence who looked after any problems which arose with the house e.g repairs and new tenants. Nothing was too much trouble. We felt our house was safe in their hands. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them....

I wish I had seen these reviews before renting with Davies and Davies. I rented from them for 6 months and moved house purely to get away. If you have an issue or request do not expect a reply or call back. On the off chance you do get one, don't expect anything to be done for months. When moving in, various appliances were malfunctioning or not working at all, including the main storage heater which took weeks to have fixed. Davies & Davies also use awful contractors who damaged property...

I wanted to arrange a viewing on the phone. Usual procedure, I spelled my name, spelled it again, she read it back, some letter was wrong. When I told her, she asked if I am sitting in front of a computer, and if yes, asked me to fill up the on-line request form and all of a sudden she hung up the call. Without saying thank you for your call or good bye or anything, just like that. I called them back, I was directed to her again. When I told her that it was not quite polite to hang up the call ...

All of the reviews below are correct. They don't use independant inventory clerks and have no respect for the fact that tenants pay their fee and that the property is your home. Arrogant, ignorant liars. If you can, get in contact with the property owner and rent direct. Otherwise, find something elsewhere....

The dealings I have had with Davies and Davies during my tenancy verge on the ludicrous and could fill an entire book, such is their immense incompetence. They have shown themselves to be rude, evasive, untrustworthy, slow and incompetent. My experience feels like an amalgamation of a number of those that have come before, with the end of my tenancy in particularly being a very fraught time. I am not one to usually write reviews, but they have lit a fire in me with the rubbish we have endured....

After moving out of a property recently I had Very poor service from Davies and Davies. As soon as you move out they couldn't care less about you. I moved out on the 10th June and it is now nearly July and I still haven't reived my deposit back. Calling them on several occasions to chase it up. They just past me off and kept saying it takes 7-10 days. I love at the start if your tenancy how they expect you to pay the deposit and ludicrously expensive fees of nearly £300 (for which they see...

I am very disappointed with this letting agency. While they frequently want to visit my home and inspections which last no longer than 20 minutes the overall service is poor. When you have a maintenance issue - they do not listen, nor log your complaints; but the minute you want to move from a property they are available to listen. Prospective tenants will be greeted well, but for the administration fees you pay and additionally cost, they are nothing but money grabbing idiots....

We rented off Davies and Davies for 4 1/2 years. Never missing a payment of rent or causing a nuisance.When we did ring for maintenance problems I.e a toilet that kept flushing they took a long time (after several phone calls) to fix it.This resulted in us paying a £200 water bill. My main warning is that when we finished our tenancy after needing a bigger property and going to another letting agent, that\'s when they tried to take as much as our bond as possible. I used to be a cleaner ...

A letter I sent to Davies and Davies: Dear Jai, First of all: thank you so much for everything. Frankly, it breaks my heart to be leaving ** if it happens. I guess it\'s time to be sensible and try and get a place of our own. From my perspective, you and your colleagues have been by far the best estate agents I have ever dealt with. Thank you.

Well where do i start? after noticing cracks in the wall and ceiling i contacted Davies and Davies lettings to inform them of the issue. They contacted the landlord who then sent out a structural engineer who told me the roof rafters where not tied down. I can only assume the landlord was not happy with the price he was told it would cost to fix so the landlord came round with another structural engineer who subsequently told him the same thing. I was then told the issue would be fixed soon. A...

It has been 18 years since (a much younger looking) Zoe and I walked into the shop and made an offer for the 51 Woodstock Road property. Davies have been there for all that time apart from a few years where we actually lived in the flat. It feels strange to have reached the end of the road with you and I do want to express my sincerest thanks to you all for providing a consistently great service. Especially I want to thank the property management team for the last year - it has been quite a...

The property management team provides a really fantastic service. In the 3 years I have rented a flat from D&D, the team has always been so prompt, professional and a pleasure to deal with. When I do eventually move into my own place, I want to take them all with me. In fact, I hope that they will consider running a concierge service for homeowners in the future - I will be their first customer....

We found the davies and davies service as tenants/property managements average. The reason for the score not being higher is that on exiting the property they attempted to charge us for cleaning despite the property having been cleaned. To make the demand more contentious, the property had actually been sold to a new owner by the time the deposit discussions had started! This meant that no cleaning company was going to be brought in and the new owners would receive our money (they even told u...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Deposit negotiations should have been conducted fairly and within the guidelines. If no costs have been incurred by any parties (n.b. parties within the tenancy agreement) then there is no requirement from the deposit.

So let me set the scene...I\'m 25 and want to buy a property that needs refurbishment and I found one in Trowbridge through Davies and Davies. I viewed the property with no trouble and decided to put an offer in which is where all the trouble started. They asked for my Mortgage Agreement in Principle before making the offer and so I supplied this. Apparently my offer was then made. I then heard nothing from Them for 4 days and so called back and got told that "they\'re not being funny but ...

Sold my house through D&D and found the service to be very good. The guys in the sales office are easy to deal with and made the process easy, despite a couple of hiccups early on with a troublesome prospective buyer - that they quickly dealt with. I dealt with Mark and Malcolm, both knew the area well and were happy to answer my queries (even quite late of an evening at one point!) Would recommend their services and most certainly would consider buying or selling through them again....

Unreliable. Unprofessional. Untrustworthy. When I moved into the property I was suprised and disappointed to see that none of the repairs I had been promised were completed. After 3 months nothing had been completed despite numerous reminders. In the end I undertook the work my self and am still waiting for a refund after 18 months. In addition when my boiler broke down in February it took almost 3 weeks to fix and dozens of calls even then the cowboy they used ruined my bed when, I assume, he d...
