Nothing but bad reviews to give for this agent. I have been a tenant for just over a year and have had nothing but harassment and problems from this company. I am currently searching for a new property..though from reading other reviews (and by my own judgement i am not hopeful ill get my deposit back)...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Much higher than other competitors, makes ridiculous credit checks and asks for guarantors bank statements and mortgage details..never in my life have i heard of another agent doing this...ive rented for the last 8 years.

From day one with these agents, the service was poor. We were asked to come up with large sums of money for deposits and agency fees, to which we weren't given a respective move-in date. Both my partner and I had jobs that even on our own individual salaries would have comfortably paid the rent and bills each month, yet they said we both had no credit history and were made to find a guarantor at extra cost. When my partner's father acted as a guarantor, they wanted to see the ins and outs of his...

-When the house was beyond repair and harmful to health with severe damp, we asked to find another property with the company, they obliged but only offered us one which still had occupants in it and when we went to view it, it took us all of 5 minutes, as the house was filthy and covered in mould up the walls. I asked Gareth what he thought of the state of the property and he shrugged his shoulders and walked into another room. -When we handed our notice in, they were extremely rude to us and did not want to sign a copy to ensure they had received it. Their attitude to existing customers is awful and often try to overpower you when you raise issues with jargon unrelated to the topic.
Comment on agent fees
Heavily overpriced compared to competitors around once we looked into it. We found for the property we were paying approx £75-£100 more per month on rent than other competing properties in the area. We have now found a dwelling which is £100 cheaper a month and is the same size with a bigger garden.

My partner and I purchased a property with Hoskins and Johnson. We were first time buyers that received nothing but lies from the start. "Gareth" the so called owner, would phone my partner and I and demand that we put in a higher offer when the seller (a work colleague)had already agreed and accepted our offer. The seller then received a call from "Gareth" stating that my partner and I were unable to get a mortgage, even though the surveyors were already booked in. "Ga...

This estate/lettings agent was vague about our enquiry to rent a property from our first telephone call. The staff were totally disinterested in our, or it seemed the property owners needs. After many telephone calls, they said a deposit was made to rent, without telling us that other parties were interested. Looking back on it, it now seems there was an element of "favouritism" might have been given to another party ? Very odd, very poor sales technique and I do wonder why people pla...

They're exactly the same company. Look at Companies House if you're doubtful....

Agree that this is not a competent undertaking. Some might say that Del Boy does not come close. They are evasive, and have no concept of the need to provide a good service to get repeat business. If you are a landlord, do it yourself or use a more reliable agency...

Where do I start?! Misleading, incompetent, unprofessional, overpriced... With my previous tenant, they would not make hardly any effort to contact me regarding the tenants concerns, so eventually tenant moved out! Decided to give them the benefit of the doubt, so asked them to find another tenant. After 3 weeks of viewings they got desperate and decided to tell interested parties that I would supply white goods for the property, even though the property was advertised unfurnished! They found a...
