Highly recommend Parkers. Always helpful and quick to respond if there's an issue. Have rented through them on and off for the past 7 years and have never had any problems or disputes during any of the tenancies.... read full review
We have let our property through Parkers for over 12 years now. We highly recommend this company to anyone wishing to either rent their property or looking to rent a property. Their service is second to none hence the reason why we are still with them.... read full review

*They have repeatedly demonstrated an extreme lack of knowledge about tenancy law, and manipulate the relationship between tenant and landlord in order to extract as much money as possible from both sides. This is demonstrated in a series of emails which I have uploaded in a thread on money saving expert forums, and you can read these emails and the other users' comments on them.

Richard Parker has run first two and then one letting for me or around twelve years now. In that time we must have had something like ten different tenants, although the the last one has stayed for eight years!

Funny that exact same thing happened to me with Richard he also hung up on me during phonecalls when I still had more I wanted to raise.

Had excellent service from Parkers when I first let my property back in 2005 (still same tenant, no problems). Just returned to see them with a new property to let and delighted to see the same staff still there and the same excellent service. This company seems to know what it's doing. A refreshing change!... read full review
