Dreadful!!! The worst letting agency I have ever dealt with! Disrespectful and completely unhelpful staff, they don't like to reply to emails nor answer the phone. They don't do their job on time or at all. I had to chase them number of times whenever ...

Both agents where very rude and didn't nothing to help at all. They made everything as difficult as they could and talked to you as if you were nothing. They are patronising and the most ill mannered people I have ever come across...

The worst agents I have ever dealt with. Extremely rude and unproffesional. I highly recommend avoiding them. They did their upmost to scheme as much money out of us as possible but were unbelievably reluctant to stick to their half of the contract when giving ...

AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS, fees are extortionate, attitude is patronising and condescending. They certainly cannot compose letters as only reply by emails and do not abide by Netiquette. THEY DO NOT USE THE ADR as recommended by the DPS and if they don't ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Problems are as stated. Perhaps being professional and knowing the law might help, as well as being polite and courteous. Changing their attitudes and business conduct and ethics.

They will harass one party in a tenancy to get their fees. As I was new to renting I was not really aware of how steep these were. I have now been advised otherwise, but too late.

Shockingly bad, just awful. Terribly rude, obnoxious and threatening staff. Blatant lies about the property and safety issues. Often refused to speak on the telephone saying they were too busy. Did not reply to my emails. Did not stick to appointment times or visit when ...

All they know how to do is threaten you with legal action all the time. Every comment I have read here testifies to that. If you are a landlord, read these comments, your tenants will be mistreated! If you are a prospective tenant, don't pay ...

I feel for you - I am now experiencing very similar problems. I'm wondering if you might be able to help me - we have no idea what to do and are currently looking at legal action. We're wondering if we might be in the same property where you had your bad experience and we are looking to have an informal chat/email with anyone that might be able to back us up! Wish we had read your review before it got this far!! ...

OMG, this estate agent doesn't even deserve 1 star. Not only was the property NOT secure when we moved in (we couldn't lock back door, and the front door could be pushed open) they did nothing about it for nearly a week. They had been constantly ...

Forrest Property Services offer an extremely poor level of service. I used to be a tenant with them and had problems regarding the maintainance of the property (none was done). There were also problems with bills, they also sent out letters which they claimed to ...

I did not refuse to pay, you refused to return my deposit. You were taken to court and you were ordered by the judge to return of part of the deposit and you sent me a cheque. I do not think you can call this "losing my case". I did feel harassed and threatened by Becky - you now say you are taking legal advice. Its this yet another threat? When will it end? Many tenants in the building were unhappy with your treatment and lack of building maintenance. Reading Council are fully aware of how you ...

Even one star is far too generous for these thugs. Despite advertising that Forrest Property Services rent out luxury apartments at reasonable prices, and while on the surface the flats do look decent, it doesn't take long to figure out you've been had. Mushrooms, rising ...

To 2sides2astory, You ask why we stayed in that building for one year and ten months? Simple. The deposit protection scheme. Finally some protection for tenants. The scheme was introduced while we resided in your property. To avoid the nightmare we'd heard from others, we thought it best to renew our lease in order to ensure our protection. Of course that didn't protect us from the multitude of other hellish issues we endured; but you did ask... ...
