Very unreliable agency! Two of their agents promised to contact me and never did. I tried to call them many times to arrange a viewing - they were completely ignoring phone calls. First Alan Thompsons promised to call me but stopped picking up his phone, then I got a phone call from his colleague, she also promised to call me back in an hour and disappeared. Very disappointing.

This agency, and the landlords they protect and represent, are extremely unethical. I was shown a different flat than the one that was available because the agency could not obtain keys. Being an expat, I did not know the risks related to this. Upon moving ...

Absolutely shocking conveyancing service. My solicitor did not return my calls and took, on average, a 10 days to reply to my emails. The solicitor then began exchange negotiations without consulting me regarding dates. It has been 7 months since I moved into my new property and ...

Maureen, Stirling Ackroyd Estate & Letting Agents are extremely sorry that you have had a bad experience with any company bearing our name. We believe that your conveyancing was undertaken by Stirling Ackroyd Legal in Commercial Road, which has not been affiliated to us for over a year now and is a completely separate company. We hope you find a resolution in the end. ...

1.5% + VAT is a lot of money given London property prices. However, it's reasonably competitive and they do know the Shoreditch market, so I would recommend.
