Albany Rd branch rented us a property that was later seized by Environmental Health for being a fire hazard. We moved into another property, furnished, with no beds. Canton branch did nothing to help. Albany Rd lettings manager Sarah is the rudest person I have ever encountered. Her attitude towards customers is utterly disgusting. A short review says nothing about the stress we encountered because of their incompetence. Current landlord severed all ties with them, life is much easier. AVOID...

Would recommend people avoid this estate agents. Moved into rented house and while decorating saw a damp wall covered in mold that had been wallpapered over. Informed the agency and was told to leave the wall so the landlord could see it. 3 months later and nothing had been done. Then on moving out they stated on the inspection that we had not maintained the moldy wall. Now it's been a month and no deposit return and despite numerous emails they've ignored every contact. Avoid...

I was viewing a property in the Tower in Cwmbran and being shown around by Jade. She was warm and welcoming and answered all the questions I had regarding the property. I asked if there were any others like this around and she recommended me another one, we arranged a viewing for the same night and I was blown away. Again, she was very knowledgeable of the property and answered all my queries regarding the rental process. The morning after I called up and Jamie assisted me with securing the ...

These clowns should vet the vendors. I viewed two properties with these jokers. I paid for searches and solicitors fees just to be told weeks before I was due to exchange contracts that the "property was no longer on the market"! They have cost me time and money, a complete joke of an estate agency. Total time wasters....

Be very careful when dealing with these people. They seem to favour the seller rather than the buyer. We were told work that was supposed to be done prior to exchanging contracts would be done but this never happened. They have cost us a lot of money in fees due to them not being able to keep their promises. Dishonest agents, buyer beware....

Absolutely Terrible I have used this company to sell and have tried to make appointments for viewings, made offers and had no return calls for days. Left messages for viewings as they seem to spent half the day in meetings, probably sorting out all the bad press and cock ups everyday. I would never sell a house with Peter Alan again and will post notes through vendors doors in future, rather than waste my time communicating or should I say trying to communicate with them. I wouldn't even give...

Bad enough that I almost pulled out of buying on a few occasions. This was a case of wanting the House bad enough to grin and bear it. While I was looking for a house, Amy was fantastic, she was professional, had good customer service, all was good. Then I put an offer on one, had it accepted and then had to deal with Angela. She was patronising that I didn't understand the process (first time buyer). She directed their preferred conveyancer on my behalf after I actually asked them not to, so I ...

Some me and my partner moved into a new home on New Year's Eve 2016 we have had nothing but trouble, the estate agent while viewing the home must of forgotten that the back and front doors were unsafe as they never mentioned any problems with them and in the inventory it states both doors are in "good" condition yet the front door wouldn't close without a slamming action and the back Door would not even stay closed unless it was locked as all the guts...

Awful experience. Richard Read was really slimy and more interested in chatting to my wife that talking about the house he was supposed to be selling.

The worst estate agent I have ever used to sell a house. It was a catalogue of cock ups from start to finish. Merthyr branch placed it with PA Black in Cowbridge as it was classed as a premium property. Neither branch knew what each other were doing. We had one viewing in three months. No contact whatsoever throughout. No feedback from the one viewing. When we asked for price changes or things adding or changing, they never happened. No reply to any messages sent. I even went to view a propert...

This agent is utterly useless. In fact they are the cause of all the problems encountered by the Landlord and Tenant. They fail to communicate 99% of the time, have no interest, are inconsistent in everything they do, have staff that have no knowledge or idea of what is going on "sorry I was moved to debt recovery 6 weeks ago and haven't done anything"! Is typical of what you will hear, if you are lucky enough to have someone answer the phone. They fail to listen, fail to do their j...

There has been a long, protracted history with this letting however I will do my best to paraphrase the situation. On the 9th of September – I was provided with the Checkout Report and was asked to confirm my bank details for processing the return of the bond deposit. I responded the same day with said details and sent numerous chase emails to get the value of the proposed deductions from the landlord (12th, 19th Sept and 3rd October). On the 4th of October I was provide...

The maintenance team and I believe the whole management are incompetent and careless. Try to avoid this estate agent as they are a nightmare. The only thing they are interested in is collecting the rent. They don't care whether the house is habitable or not. No matter how many times you report a fault the only thing they do is emailing the landlord. They are not ready to take any responsibility toward the tenant. Even when they deal with a problem, they do it partially so you have to spend all o...

Waste of time and liars. Maintenance team sent an unsuitable imcompentant contractor to carry out work which wasn't completed to building regs. Even though I raised concerns the day the work was being carried out they continued to pay the contractor. After a whole year of chasing and being told "we'll look in to it" & "I will call you back with the information", they finally admitted they had paid him immediately after the work had been carried out and "due to the...

Peter Alan have been infinitely hopeless at every stage of this process and I continue to be disgusted by their behavior months after I have left the property. On the day of moving in, I was refused the keys to the house because they had not completely their gas safety checks on time. This left me, and all of my belongings, homeless for three days until it was rectified. Upon moving in, the house was empty although I had specifically requested that the house remain furnished. Peter Alan's in...

This agency is very greedy. For a start their up front costs are higher than anyone else in Swansea. We have been renting nearly two years now, our current house is exactly the same pcm as the one we were going for with Peter Alan however they demanded a guarantor and £90. This is because my base salary is low and 60% of my income is overtime. We did offer to provide payslips etc as proof. They also refused a 12 month contract and would only offer a 6 month contract that we'd have to pay ...

After having 2 house viewings confirmed, re-arranged work commitments to view the properties, only to have BOTH viewings cancelled at the last minute. I found the explanation that both houses were suddenly unavailable to view very unlikely. I suspect that both employees had something else planned which required an early finish on their part. Very poor attitude and would not give me a confirmed concrete alternative viewing date. If this is their attitude with prospective clients, I have no wish ...

I have had numerous issues with Peter Alan from the date of moving in over a year ago, these issues have been constantly ongoing and whenever you report a maintenance issue there is a song and dance over it being done, after weeks or even months of constantly phoning and arguing with them they may finally get the work done. They repeatedly use the landlord as the reason for not being able to complete work which they are legally required to undertake to the point that local council services have ...

Complete incompetence on Peter Alan's behalf from branch level (Pontypridd) to Lettings Division in Culverhouse Cross. Neither the Team Leader nor the Finance Department knew when my next rent was due following the end of a tenancy agreement. "Management" fees are a joke - 13% including VAT when I had to constantly chase them and they didn't inspect my property once in 6 and a half months. They were also unprofessional in their dealings with my tenant. I had recommended them to two oth...

Rented a furnished property in Cardiff through Peter Alan. From the start of the tenancy agreement there were problems with paperwork not done properly. The house was filthy and had to be cleaned and painted from top to bottom before we could move in. Peter Alan said that that was our own fault because we had signed the tenancy agreement. Constant problems with appliances and blocked drains throughout tenancy. We were without a refidgerator for 1 month because the landlord lived in China and wou...
