I found Harris Shields to be so bad as a lettings agent that I will never use them again. Slow to fix repairs, and uninterested in taking an out-of-hours call to fix a boiler that was leaking rusty water everywhere. Favouring landlords far more than ...

Comment on agent fees
Fees are excessive, deposits are too large, and a guarantor is often required despite excellent references and no history of defaulting on rent. I shouldn’t have to pay an extra £200 for a cat. I find this discriminatory. Most pet owners are clean and responsible, but typically tenants pay the price for the one or two bad ones. This was particularly galling considering the house was in a pretty poor state of decoration when I moved in, and yet streaky walls and ancient gloss were deemed good enough by the agent - but the slim chance of my cat causing damage to the house warranted a separate agreement document all of its own.

Comment on agent fees
Management fees are fair at 10% (12% when you factor in VAT) but this is supposed to be for a full management service so why is there a tenant find fee of £50. I would have thought that finding a tenant was part of the service. Also I strongly object to having to pay to protect the tenant's deposit. If the tenancy deposit protection scheme is meant to protect the tenant's deposit against unscrupulous landlords then I would have thought that the tenant should be paying the fee, not the landlord.

I understand the fees though sometimes can be expensive as when moving in you have a lot of charges to start with. So has to be fair. I always keep spare keys with family so if I do get locked out I can always get in.
