Thank you all at Omega Residential team for making our stay and move easy and stress free. I found Omega Residential were a very easy company to deal with and also very pro-active once the maintenance issues was raised. The property we have stayed in was a period conversion in an excellent location, and as with many properties especially the period style, issues do come up. We found Vas and the team to be very quick who have dealt with our concerns instantly. The staff Elaine and Stav were ver...

Quite simply one of the most stressful experiences of my life. Vas can not be considered a human being, he is the most vile person I have ever met. Some things they did to us:- 1. We bought a sofa bed ourselves for the flat, and at the end of the tenancy left it in a skip. They found said sofa bed and charged us for it! Even though WE had bought it, and it wasn\'t in the contract, they charged us for it! Charged 200. 2. They charged us for a motion sensor light which their DIY man broke, ...

It\'s alarming that Omega Properties are allowed to continue operations when you consider they are walking a fine line between running a business and heading up a criminal property ring. As others have said on this site, none of the reviews are surprising. We had builders with keys randomly appear at our flat and let themselves in without any notice on several occasions. When we gave notice on the property (for which the reason was feeling very uncomfortable about the security of the flat an...

Shocking, appaling never on time for repairs always promising never to fullfill dead lines,there seems to be lack of management and follow up from logging calls with omega lettings to the so called engineers who can turn up 12 hour later in the middle of the night I wonder how Ealing council gave them the opportunity to run and why!!!!.?

Omega properties attitude towards maintenance is shocking. They will never, ever pay for something to be replaced and always resort to a temporary fix. Two examples in our first 6 months: Our washing machine has broken down twice already, the first time it took them a month to resolve the problem and I had to threatened to take laundry money out of the rent in order to get it fixed. The washing machine is 10 years old and the repair man is very familiar with our house having been called out ...

There is no respect for people's space. The maitenance man often leaves things everywhere. Our property was damaged several times when he came through. Further, the way they speak to people is shocking. I would strongly recommend no females ever rent this property....

Omega Properties are undoubtedly one of the most unprofessional property firms operating in London. When we moved into the flat, the poor quality of the fittings was immediately obvious - complete bodge jobs and furnished with the cheapest, most disposable fittings available. Despite repeated requests for major, essential repairs to be undertaken (completely within the boundaries legally required of landlords), most of these took months to complete, if they were attended to at all. If/when they ...

I used Omega against my better judgement. Every review here is truthful, they are a terrible agency. I think I knew moving into a dirty flat I was going to be in trouble, so I took photos of everything. They refused to give me a copy of my tenancy agreement before I moved in, if I wanted to read it I would have to go to their office to read through it. The worst thing about our flat was the single glazing & lack of curtains. They refused to help out in anyway, we froze through the winter and...

We moved out of an Omega property around 3 months ago and I can only bring myself to write a review now as this organisation makes my blood boil. Omega is a horrible, dishonest, money hungry organisation that should be avoided at all costs. We lived in one of their properties for 7 months and it was very unpleasant experience. The following series of events highlights the type of organisation Omega is. Month 1: when we moved in the property was dirty and the bathroom was covered in mold. ...

I have just come accross this website because I\'m planning to move houses soon so looking for a good agent....while I was looking at the best ranked agents I thought I\'d take a look at the worst wondering if Omega would be on the list, which I doubted because they\'re so small and not that well known. But there they were, in position #2 and I am jus not surprised at all - they are so absolutley terrible that no wonder people are writing about them; we\'ve got to let everybody know! I had the ...

We rented a flat in 2009/10 and were shocked by how poor the service, the accomodation and the general attitude were of the agency and the Landlord. The agency & the landlord are the same operation - despite what they may lead you to believe. I would say that they repeatedly erred on the side of criminality. I can't recall how many fire-safety issues, leaks and other issues we had... all fixed by a group of illegal workers who were periodically dropped off at our doorstep and had no cert...

I'm very happy to see that Vas Demosthenous's behaviour is finally catching up with him. We rented a property in Islington, back in 2001/2. The property had a range of defects, the most serious being a damp problem so severe that our clothes went mouldy in the wardrobe. The landlord was impossible to contact for the entire year. At the end of the tenancy he blamed us for the damage that the mould had done to the carpets - and a bunch of other things we hadn't done - and made off with hundred of ...

I've been renting in London for around 12 years and I've never encountered any agents/landlords as appallingly unprofessional as these. You'd think that there would be laws in place to regulate this kind of behaviour. The main character, Vas, is extraordinarily hard to deal with, like dealing with a petulant child. Don't expect any repairs to be done without a mammoth battle, and when they're finally done it'll be a cheap bodge job. Don't expect reason, politeness or anything approaching profess...

Couldn't agree more with everything that's been said here. A thoroughly unpleasant, unprofessional outfit. We have struggled to get them to do any repairs in the few years we've been here. Now we have handed in our notice, the landlord let himself into the flat without warning and has suddenly decided the flat is in a horrible state of disrepair (as it has been since we moved in and as we repeatedly told them and asked for something to be done) and now seems to be blaming us for the problems....

They have recently changed their name to Omega Residential. These guys are the worst letting agency probably in the whole country. They never help, nothing ever gets fixed, you will moved into a broken house. We didn't receive working keys for a month, the list goes on and on. Rude, money hungry, awful, horrible people to deal with....

I agree with all posters here, they are the worst agenct in London. They outsource their properties so beware. If renting in the Camden/Holloway area ask your Letting Agency if the Landlord is in anyway connected to Avalon lettings/Omega Properties. And Get out if it is. We moved into to a new refurb and it was disaster from day one.... our kitchen ceiling flooded non stop for a week and I mean loads of water from dodgy plumbing. We also leaked from out bathroom to the flat below every time w...

Unbelievable! This must be the worst Lettings Agency in England. Whatever you do do not rent from them. Not even a dogs house I would rent from them. We have now involved all possible institutions to get out of our contract... we have been broken into twice in 3 months living in there after pleading to make our flat more secure he just loves into our faces... after the second break in he does not even answer his phone or calls us. I am warning everybody not to rent from this person!!...

Dreadful. Stay well away. We were comparitively lucky as not much went wrong but when it did it was bodged instead of being properly addressed. It is clearly a half-arsed operation that is run basically on behalf of the landlord and cares nothing for the tenants and has no means to act with any kind of agency whatsoever....

If you rent a flat from Avalon lettings don\'t expect to be treated like a person. They really don\'t give a **** about you. I don\'t even know where to begin. In short, they will fix NOTHING, ever. Light in the hallway, locks to the front door, rotten balcony. We are talking about a full year of trying to get these essential repairs done. Decided finally to move out and are seriously worried about our bond. Don\'t believe any of their or their estate agents\' promises. And be careful what you s...

Absolutely disgraceful....DO NOT USE!! They claim that Avalon Lettings manages a number of properties in the North London area a "friendly approach and professional service". Presumably me and the rest of these people are yet to see this side of them! Our property has been a disaster from day one. We moved into eires still hanging out the walls and holes all round the house. Since then we have had rats and a number of other problems. All that Avalon is is a girl that sits in an office all day on...

Every other comment on here rings true with us. We arrived to a filthy flat that was closer to a building site than an inhabitable building - and this despite the landlord insisting the contract started 10 days earlier. The landlord was extremely aggressive and didn't care about the way the property looked, whether it was safe to live in, whether in fact the property was fit to live in, or anything apart from money in the bank. It took us three months to get the flat to a standard it should ...

I wish I had read these reviews before taking on a property with avalon!! We moved in a week ago and requested the front door locks to be changed as they were loose and not very safe, we also requested that we be notified if any workmen were coming round. Went out for 1 hour and couldnt get back in as the locks had been changed with not evenn a phonecall! the stupidity of it is beyond me!!!...

Same thing - Avalon only gave us one key when there were two locks to the front door. They then sent workmen who then locked me out my flat on two separate occassions. Our flat was also newly refurbished and the standard of work was terrible, and the kitched / bathroom clearly seconds - all in a luxury flat....

Awful, awful awful. The guy who owns it is never in the country, the office is only open 2 days a week and staffed by temps (I feel sorry for them). They hardly repaired a thing we've asked for and when they do eventually get round to fixing something, it's this weird little guy who doesn't seem to have a clue what he's doing. Don't go near them. I hope they never rent another property - total rip-off, especially when the market for rental is actually pretty good at the moment....

Horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible - I wish someone had told me what this company was like before we used them. Badly built and cheap furnishings, flat wasn\'t in finished condition when we moved in and getting anything put right was a horrific experience of abusive e-mails and phone calls.

We moved into a almost unfurnished (we signed up to fully furnished) completely filthy and unfinished dwelling. We were bullied into signing a lease agreement on the spot and the letting agent refused to let us see the finished building on the day of signing - unsuprisngly we moved into an unfinished apartment. As it turns out the lease agreement contained all of the landlords statutory rights but NONE of the tenants!! We were ignored and then bullied when we requested the bare minimum such ...
