Found a flat in Richmond with John D Wood, but after moving in I found it unlivable due to noise. Expecting the worst, I contacted the agent and was pleasantly surprised — they allowed me to cancel the contract early and move out. They didn't ...

Their fees are high, I wouldn't have minded if the service wasn't terrible and if the manager had the decency to address a complaint rather than say nothing, and respond only over the phone with patrony. Clearly he's well versed in handling complaints.
