Tenants Beware!!! Well where to I begin! ... My partner and I saw a flat on the Kings Lettings website that was advertised as 'furnished'. As we were flexible to either a furnished or unfurnished property we decided to view. The agent that we met (15 minutes late no apologies), told us that the landlord had recently bought the property and that the furniture had be left by the previous owners. As we looked around, all the property was just what we were looking for, the 'furniture' consisted o...

I've been living in a property rented from King's for almost a year now and have to say that so far (touch wood!) they've been the best lettings agent I've ever dealt with. The move back in March was easy - one slight error with the paperwork but they apologised and helped put it right - and since then they've been very attentive. Even non-essential repairs have been dealt with promptly and they've always sent people out when needed. The staff actually treat you like a human being, which is most...

Comment on agent fees
The agent fees are very reasonable for a high level of service and attention. I have used some of the larger ''chain'' agents previously, but they don't offer the same level of service.

I have been a customer of Kings for 25 years and over that time the company has grown hugely but the values of personal service and attention remain unchanged. The thing I most value about Kings is their tenant selection. They know the importance of finding the right tenant and always put great emphasis on this –they don't just get you any tenant to get a quick let. The regulatory backdrop for residential letting is continually changing and Kings are always happy to advise on the new reg...

I have been a Landlord with Kings in Caversham for 15 years or so now. They provide a fantastic service for me in finding tenants, advertising/marketing my 3x properties in Reading and carrying out tenant reference checks. My dealings over the years have been with Trish, Roz, Jane and Margaret before she left some years ago. They all know the rental business inside out and are always very professional in carrying out their many duties. I have no reservations about recommending the Kings Caversha...

I am currently looking to invest in some properties, and needed information on rental returns in the Reading area. Having visited two other agents, and left suitably confused with the information that was given, and the off hand attitude as I did not have any current property to rent. It was like a breath of fresh air when I met the friendly and helpful staff at Kings in Caversham. The manager, Roz, was most helpful, her experience, expertise, and knowledge about how I could proceed, the best...

Over the past 15 years I have had the most excellent service from this company, and more recently under the management of Mrs Vanbishop. The void periods have been kept to a minimum by seeking new tenants during the notice period. Any queries raised by me about lettings, have been answered promptly and professionally. I would not wish to change my letting agents...

What agent could do to change your mind?
For a tenant finder fee, it seems very high; and more particularly when the tenancy is renewed. This latter cost in no way reflects the minimal amount of work involved.

After some particularly poor experiences with other local agents dealing with Kings was a real pleasure. Paul and his team provide a friendly, efficient and professional service that met all my needs as a landlord. Any issues myself or the tenant had were sorted out promptly and economically to both our satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend Kings to anyone whether a landlord or tenant and will most certainly use their services again in the future....

It feels good to write a testimony for your letting agent with whom I have been associated for almost a year now. Words are less but thoughts too many to write down. KINGS are really professional and soft spoken people. Always helpful and quick to respond to your calls/emails. I know most of the staff members by names, just because I am really impressed with their service. Ranging from arranging visits to post move-in queries. All handled with patience and care. It becomes evident that they are...

As a landlady of many properties in the Reading area, I am in regular contact with agents. Some of which are quite bad, irresponsible to both the landlord and the tenants. I used Kings myself as a tenant in my previous life, when times were hard. They were sympathetic to my situation and helped me secure a 6 month tenancy. Since then, life has been good and I am now the proud owner of many flats myself. So, clearly I returned to them when one needed a tenant in the Emmer Green area. They w...

Right from the outset, when Jane and Roz came to visit the property, I was impressed by their presentation and enthusiasm to do business with us. As soon as the contract was signed, we were not disappointed as viewings for letting the property began straight away. The level of communication either via telephone or email to keep us informed and up to date was also excellent. Once the tenant were found, they were able to provide a flexible service tailored to our needs. I cannot recommend Kings C...

My property has been fully managed by Kings for about 15 years. In that time I have found all of the Kings staff including Rae and Jackie to be highly efficient and professional. Communication is excellent and the staff are very polite and knowledgeable. The office appears to work very well as a team which, I believe, to be important. As a landlord with a number of properties in the UK, I have no hesitation in recommending the Windsor branch of Kings....

Kings was our first letting agent eleven years ago - we wouldn't have thought that we'd still be using the same agent after 11 years but there is simply no reason to even look elsewhere. The service has been superb, at a very fair price. Our flat has been fully occupied for the entire period, apart from the odd week between a change of tenants. We have recently bought a second flat and this too is let through Kings - a tenant was found very quickly and pays the top end of what we were hoping t...

I am a first time buyer and was therefore completely new to the buy to let world. The agents could not have been more helpful. The whole office is always welcoming and has a friendly atmosphere, and since I live nearby it was often easier to pop in than e-mail or telephone. I was always seen straightaway and it was clear that they valued my custom from their positive manner. They relayed useful feedback on the property from potential clients and were efficient in everything they did, including o...

Kings have been our agent ever since we started letting properties 12 years ago. As we increased our property portfolio, we always asked Kings to handle it and we have never been disappointed. They fully manage all our properties very competently. They always try to minimise gaps, they keep us informed and deal with any issues promptly. I have a very good relationship with Kings, everyone at the Windsor branch is excellent. It is a pity that I can only single out 2 staff members in this review...

I must admit we had heard mixed reviews initially of Kings from other fellow tenants and decided to make our own minds up when the property offered all that we needed at that time. Our expectations were quickly dashed and surpassed and having dealt with Sam for the past 2 and a half years, we have consistently been delighted by the service she\'s offered and professionalism demonstrated. An asset and a definite \'keeper\' Thanks...

I\'ve been a customer of Kings for several years, having moved from another local agent. They have found new tenants quickly with only short gaps in between, , and 2 of the tenants have stayed for several years, which is what I want as I now live abroad and prefer it to be occupied long term. Any tenant issues have been dealt with quickly. The staff are friendly and helpful. Basically, it\'s been pretty easy, exactly what I want, more so than my previous agents....
