Knew nothing about the house and was generally disinterested in anything I had to say. They only become interested when I put in an offer and set completely unrealistic timescales (like arranging a valuation in a week!). Typical estate agent that is only after the commission, zero customer service and if anything an overall worse experience than the estate agent I used (online estate agent at fraction of the cost). Didn't want to name and shame but the branch manager is rather unhelpful, other s...

I am very pleased with Fisks. My property requirements were very specific. I wanted a secure gated development, 24 hour security, parking bay, a west or south facing reception area with a river view and an east facing bedrooms. I had a very strict budget and Martin Boylan worked hard to find the right property. When I first registered my requirements I specifically requested contact via email or sms only. Fisks was the only agent to adhere to this request. When Martin found the right property f...

We had a terrible experience when trying to rent a property recently. Fisks lied about items which were included in the rental in order to justify an higher-than-normal rental offer, and when we found out (which they obviously didn't expect us to), their manager James refused to discuss it over the telephone, return our deposit or accept any responsibility despite us having proof. We had no option but to visit them in branch in an attempt to resolve the dispute, where James and lettings agent...

We were looking for a flat to rent in the Docklands area as I wanted to be closer to work (Canary Wharf). Peter took us to view some really nice properties. He was very patient, not pushy and was clear and transparent in his communication style. Peter showed us a number of properties which were definitely the kind of properties we were looking for in terms of space, quality and price range. Unfortunately we realised that we didn't like the docklands area as much as we initially thought we would...

Fisks in docklands are the most unethical agents I have interacted with. In short they are white collared cheats. I had a terrible experience while looking for a rental property in Docklands. During offer negotiations they tried to get 6months rent upfront for the landlord because I was self employed which I declined. At that point they verbally committed and I paid the holding deposit and other fees to proceed with the offer. Couple of days later they came back saying that referencing had fa...

I have a very depressing experience with this agent!!!!!! Upon putting down a holdiding deposit of £540 the agent told us that land lord want to rise the rent by 130 per month and then when we had FOUR DAYS to move in , Fisks told us that the landlord do not want to go ahead without any reason. but they could not give us the full £540 back because they had already sent all the reference checks and deliver the service. We emailed the agent claiming back our money, but there is no ...

My daughter has just had a very distressing experience with this firm. They took a sizeable deposit which they kept when the landlord of the proposed property dropped out. The guy Pring is apparently a nasty piece of work. Check your legal position with them or better still, avoid them completely. Organisations with such a poor attitude to customer service do not deserve to survive....

Upon putting down a holdiding deposit of £900 the land lord rose the rent 3 times! Then when we had 3 days to move in Fisks told us that the property was not available but they could not give us the full £900 back because they had already sent all the reference checks. Not only have they been inhumane, they were very quick to jump to their company policies and regulations which they failed to mention us. At this stage we had not signed anything, we had not been told the consequenc...

Please do not use these Letting agents. They badly manage properties. I was supposed to move into a property on a particular date. Till the previous date, there was a huge chunk of repair work to be completed in the property. And they stated the dishwasher will be fixed after I move in. One of the agent was so rude who stated she washes her own dishes, so I would have to live without the dishwasher till its fixed and wash my dishes ! I was promised that all the maintainence work will be done ...

Brilliant estate agents! We had a light switch break - was sorted within a week. They come check the flat regularly check all is in order. Friendly. Given keys to boyfriend when hes left his at work a number of times!! Know everyone they let to and their landlords well. If they did lettings where we are looking to move to we would use them!...

Very inefficient. They hardly listen to you and they tend to ignore emails and telephone calls. Frankly, amongst the worst agents I ever had to deal with. Plenty of agents in Canary Wharf, avoid them....

People are always ready to tell bad things but not when it is good, the staff are very pleasant and helped me in every way. I realise who thier client is but they made me feel like that did the best they could to ensure I had the best and smothest move possible. I would use these again and the management have been a real help ever since. Thanks....

Nice enough when you look round flats, but you will get hit with extremely high charges when you leave, for check out and unnecessary cleaning costs. Their back office staff are quite useless in resolving any issues. Use a different agency, you will regret using these....

I went to rent a place with them and they didn't show me anything at my price range and then insists on unreasonable clauses in the lease!! Luckily, I had a friend who was a lawyer and she told me what to do. Don't trust these guys!...
