We're disappointed to read this review and would welcome the opportunity to discuss the detail with you. Haslams were one of the first agents in Reading to be transparent with our fees, showing these online and ensuring that these are referred to in all our property advertising. We do our best to ensure that tenants are fully appraised of the fees they will be required to pay. ...

Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure for Haslams Estate Agents Customers



1. Any complaint whether verbal or in writing should be recorded by our member of staff handling the matter at the time it is made.

2. We will agree to deal with any representative you might like to appoint on your behalf

3. We will attempt to resolve the matter positively with you in the first instance and record the outcome. The written record will then be passed to the individual's line manager

4. A written complaint will be acknowledged in writing (or by email) no later than 3 working days after it has been received. This would normally be done by a member of the senior management team who hasn't been directly involved in the matter. That manager then will promptly investigate the matter and provide a formal written outcome within 15 working days.

5. If you remain dissatisfied you may put your complaint in writing to our Managing Director Steve Woodford. He will then carry out a separate review and a report of his conclusion will be sent to you within 15 working days. That letter will also point out that if you remain dissatisfied that you can refer the matter to the Property Ombudsman (matters relating to Sales) or ARLA (matters relating to Lettings) and that such referral must be made within 6 months of that letter being sent.
