The staff member that dealt with me didn\'t go as far as introducing herself; she barely looked at me in fact. With the consideration that an estate agent is a customer facing representative about to be paid far too much for too little work, ...

Overall: Terrible experience. I rented a flat through Oliver Bond, and overall my impression is that they are incompetent, and I would strongly advise people to avoid if possible. Our deposit has been impossible to get back after months of moving out, despite the landlord ...

Please do not use this company.. If you are still a tenant using this agency I **strongly** suggest you check that your deposit is protected - which it probably wont be. You are then legally able to reclaim your deposit with up to 3 x in ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They should have been honest and returned the deposit in a timely manner (14 days as per contract and not 6 months). They should have done it w/out me having to resort to lawyers.

I think impossible to get your money back is probably more accurate. After 6 months following the legal process we have managed to get some of our tenants deposit transfered to the DPS, but they still owe us over 2,000 in fees. If you got any moneyback from them, congratulations! ...

Please do not use this agency. They owe us £4,000 and if you search them you will see there are 7 outstanding CCJs owing around £150K (as of 15/4/11). All this explains the slow payment of monthly rents and poor service standards. But the most worrying ...

We found out about the CCJ's a couple of months after we moved in, when they continually failed to register our deposit with the DPS. (A certificate is issued by the DPS once the deposit is registered for the agent to forward onto the tenant.) I issued a claim through the county court for fee of around £80, and then phoned them to say as there were so many outstandings debts, we should skip straight to bankruptcy proceedings. The deposit was registered within 24 hours. ...
