Properties Actually have always been very responsive and keen to reply to our requests. The service delivered is precisely what you expect from the moment you contact them for the first time: honest and helpful professionals, straight-talking, mindful of what matters. No fireworks and brass band but i wouldn't want estate agents to be present when not needed, so this is good....

Very pleased with the service I received from Properties Actually. They responded to my e-mails promptly and when it was time for me to move out due to the property I was staying in being renovated, they arranged a one month extension with the landlord so that I wouldn't have to move during Christmas. This was very kind of them and of the landlord for allowing it. When it was time to return the deposit, I just e-mailed them my bank details in the evening and the money was returned in full to ...

The agent's fees were very reasonable as they included all fees in one and did not charge the extortionate checking out fees that most other agents charge.

Dear Sir or Madame It is very easy for anyone such as yourself to write a review on this site and remain anonymous, however it does not help us to identify the case and respond here in a truthful manner by stating true facts as we have responded to other reviews. I believe that if you were a good tenant then you would not have to remain anonymous and if you think that you have been cheated or that we have "faked" any documentation as you claim, please note that these are serious ....

Hi, these people are exactly what you expect from landlord. Unclear about your right as a tenant, and lieling to, probably, maximize profit. I would stay sway from Nick Kimbel, Michael (something) and the whole of Properties actually if you want to find a place. I tried to get a place and they lied to me again and again and is now ignoring my number. Sadly, this seems to be above average behaviour from London agencies. But still, they lie and cheat about what information they give. What more you...

HI. I want to thank all members who work in Properties Actually, who has found me this amazing property that i am enjoying every minute living in. Nick and Dorian were very helpful when i was applying for the property, the terms and conditions were clear and no hidden fees applied. After references have been submitted and assessed, contracts were signed and keys were handed in to me. Happy day :) After few months, my washing machine stopped working, send email in the morning to report the ...

There is an agent/branch manager called Nick Kimbel you want to avoid. This person is indescribably incompetent and devious (or acts incompetent to try and cover up his devious behaviour!). Not only does he not respond to emails when facing his contradicitons, he is very rude when on the phone. He has made it extremely difficult for us to get a refund of our deposit while we had already left the UK. Avoid at all costs Propertiesactually or at least this agent!...

Dear Bertrand Motte After you happily renewed your tenancy with Properties Actually for the past 2 years it is unfair on your behalf to advise to avoid Properties Actually. As you were made aware by The Deposit Protection Service soon after you moved in, your deposit was sent to the scheme and was held for the duration of your tenancy. Your tenancy was ended by you at your own will on the 22nd August 2014. Yo were required to close all utility accounts and provide proof that the final bills ....

The person I met was friendly enough but after taking two hours out of your schedule to visit the property the least you expect is to see the property. When I showed up at the agreed upon time, the agent did not have the key and called up the landlord who said he could not come right then. Rather unprofessionally managed, the whole thing....

Dear "VDR" (Although I would prefer to give the real name of this person in order to make the review real and fair, allagents.co.uk would remove it) Agents don't always hold keys for all properties and in such cases; appointments are arranged relying on third parties who hold keys. In this case the Landlord could not make it and we were not made aware so we apologised for the inconvenience this caused you and you were offered to arrange another convenient time, which you very impolite....

I\'ve had an absolute nightmare with this agency. I paid in £180 for a inventory and contract. My contract was a standard template and my inventory was 2 pages long stating the rooms and that they had floors. There were no photos, no details, etc. when questioning this I was told it was a basic inventory so I carried my own out. The property was dirty, I had previous tenants food in my freezer, thick cob webs on the windows, burnt fat in the oven, deep grease on the hob, bathroom was al...

Dear "AR" Taking into consideration that I can not name you and your comments, no matter how untrue they may be, it is only fair for people who read this review to know the real facts and cronology of events: You viewed the property for the first time on the 16th April 2013 at 1:30pm. You were allowed enough time in the property and garden area to carry out a thorough inspection. I answered all your questions at the time. Soon after the viewing, you sent an email expressing you....

The letting agents were always helpful, although they were not managing the property we rented through them and the Landlord could not be reached most of the time, the agents were always available and ready to assist. They arranged for repairs within the same day most of the time and helped us with the refund of our deposit once we moved out, even though our Landlord wanted to charge us unfailry. Overall great service and what tenants should expect from their agents....

Avoid these agents at all costs - we had such an unhappy experience with Properties Actually when we were requested to vacate our property only 6 months into the tenancy as the landlord wished to carry out building work. The estate agents from Properties Actually were uncommunicative, obstructive, rude and unhelpful. They were totally unreasonable in all our dealings with them, refused to allow us to communicate directly with the landlord and offered absolutely no assistance in our unexpected ...

[[EDIT ORIGINAL START]] These Tenants, Rose Laura Dove, Amy Faye Druce, Emily Rivka Conradi, who like many other bad tenants prefer to remain anonymous when giving undeserved bad reviews for Estate Agents, must be avoided like the plague. It is a shame to have accepted them as tenants in the first place. Throughout their tenancy they were a real nuisance. The tenancy had a break clause, they were issued the notice well in advance and although they required more time, we did our utmost to ge....

We had a very good experience dealing with Properties Actually. When we first approached them for a suitable flat, they found some good options for us within our budget and managed to arrange a price which was fair for both the landlord and us. Further, they managed the repairs and maintenance for our flat and were extremely responsive whenever there was a problem. At times we needed some urgent matters to be taken care of like our main door lock broke down or a leak in the kitchen, they promptl...

Agree with all the comments plus we moved out 3 months ago and have not received our deposit back despite being told by them that the house was in same condition as we moved in. They've been absolutely no help with this and have only told us that the landlord is 'old' and usually returns deposits late. The deposit protection we paid for was only valid for the first year and after this the landlord has to re-register, which he didn't, but we were never told this. Estate agents generally don...
