We tried to buy a flat through this company and agreed a price with them and the vendor. The property was surveyed, the mortgage offered and the legal work almost completed when Agents called me to say the vendor wanted to increase the purchase price and may be looking for another offers too?

In the end, I agreed to increase the price by about ‚£7500 and my lender re-issued the offer and we agreed a date for exchange.

On the day of the proposed exchange, Agents called me again to say the price had gone back up by another ‚£5000. He knew the lender would take a week to reissue a new offer and suggested I pay the difference in cash, which we both knew could be seen as defrauding my lender and avoiding stamp duty.

In need, I agreed to pay for another increase of ‚£5000 subjected to offer is reissued by my lender, solicitors and is acceptable to Agent and Vendor . Not received a proper response to this I was asked to pay another price increase of ‚£5000 and complete the exchange next day.

It was unprofessional, illegal and unethical way too. I decided not accede to any such demands by the Agent and Vendor.

This is not a professional estate agency operation and buying them was the cause of significant pain and distress.
What agent could do to change your mind?
They should be honest/professional in the services offer to the customers.

This was driven by the Seller of the apartment and which we advised against.
We are currently suing the Seller for other illegal activities relating property.

Poor, as they will do all they can to not give you back what you're owed. And if you pay admin fees, they will not do the administration!

We do remember these tenants. Unfortunately, some were disrespectful. Some of these tenants were not mature at all, in fact, immature, to say the least. They would argue, demand and complain even when their light bulb had to be replaced by themselves but my colleague would go out of his way even out of hours to replace a bulb. They would even argue amongst themselves. Wasn't a healthy environment. ...

Worst agency possible. Management were extremely rude and tried to mislead us because we were students and apparently are to "childish" to understand lettings. Took a holding deposit of £250 pounds and then added additional charges for referencing and guarantors referencing. Took advantage of our money ...

I believe a holding deposit was taken when you viewed the property which you agreed to move into. However, the holding deposit was refundable subject to you meeting the Lettings Manager and going through the full breakdown of the fees and charges. You had been provided with a copy of the full breakdown to take with you. If you were not happy about the fees and charges, the holding deposit could have been returned back without any deductions. If you had a complaint against an employee, you coul ...
