WARNING, they seem to have changed their name to 'Knights Porter', possibly in an attempt to rebrand themselves. Different name, same scum. Stay away. At best, utterly incompetent, at worst, deceitful. My experience is pretty much the same as all the 1* reviews on there. In ...

Highest fees I've ever seen - you would hope that at least the customer service is acceptable, but echoing the thoughts of others on here, they are absolutely useless and unprofessional. They will charge you for literally everything they can get their dirty hands on - check out fees, and charging to protect my own deposit?! Disgraceful

We have rented through lettings direct for more than 8 months now. They are breathtakingly poor in terms of customer service. It is difficult to say whether this is due to ineptitude or willful aviodance of purpose. Email them about something and expect no reply. We ...

This is the worst agency I've ever rented from. As a student, I've done my fair share of renting properties. Overall Lettings Direct has been the worst agency I've ever experienced by a long shot. I'm not the type of individual who writes reviews ever......

Comment on agent fees
Extortionate fees, this seems to be how this agency make their money. When your contract runs out, we had a year contract, rather than do what most agents do is to continue the contract on a rolling basis Letting Direct attempt to oblige tenants to sign a new contract, locking them in for another 6 or 12 months and charging a £200 fee in the process. As a previous reviewer comments there is a £95 deposit release fee when you move out, even though there is a third party company that deals with the deposit and seems to do all the admin for the deposit. Finally in moving to a new rental property as standard I needed a reference from my previous agency - I was charged £20 for that.

Lousy management, definitely not value for money. Any repairs carry a hefty premium. I was even charged for a quote which was extortionate so I had another firm carry out repairs. Property inspections can't be trusted.

We are disappointed to hear that a Tenant was unhappy with the end of tenancy procedure. As with all residential tenancies there is a contractual obligation for exiting tenants to have properties cleaned which includes carpets. At the end of the tenancy period the Letting Agent is instructed by the Landlord to perform a check-out which is a report based on the original property inventory. The purpose of the report is to ensure that the property has been left in a similar condition to that of the ...

The agency is similar to all others, Excessive fees charged for services including inventories, check-in, check-outs, administration that have no real legal standing and could perhaps be made cheaper by having a standard package charge that reflects the work/manpower involved

What agent could do to change your mind?
The agents should have been more transparent and inform me of all the fees. I did not read the contract because I did not have the time and it is full of Jargon. I have moved several times and read previous contracts. These generally say the same thing. They cannot expect one to read the whole contract, especially in the case of a more experienced tenant. Therefore, they should have a more transparent attitude. They only pretend to be friendly or transparent. They only work in the interest of the Company or of the Landlord, not that of the tenant.
