Hi Mathew, I would like to highlight a couple of points. Our fees are clearly displayed on our Rightmove Site and are also in our office. Kings Estates do not charge for renewal fees or check out fees. Some landlords who manage their own properties do charge to renew to cover the cost of re-registering the deposit. This is not a charge from Kings Estates. Our fees are very competitive and if you shopped around you would find this is the case. I find it very rude and disrespectful of ...

Hi Tyreece, Firstly I would like you to explain how Kings Estates had taken advantage of you as a client. At no point did any transaction take place nor any Terms/Contract signed. You were never lied to about the price of the property. Although my colleague was unaware this particular landlord took 6 weeks deposit you were told before any agreement could be made. When it became clear you did not wish to pay a deposit of this amount we tried to contact the landlord to negotiate a lower deposit o ...
