Sean Hewitt at Spencers in Walthamstow has looked after a couple of my investment properties for the past few years.
He has provided an excellent service in sourcing tenants and keeping me informed of the property market in the E17 area.

We are currently fighting the same battle. It has been 2 months since we've moved out and they have FINALLY responded to our many emails + phone calls and us managing to get in touch with our landlady (she said there was no problem and didn't know why they hadn't given the money back). And are now wanting a petty amount for a handyman to replace two lightbulbs. They are so unprofessional and liars! ...

They are taking advantage of a very difficult rental market for tenants by charging extortionate fees for nothing, demanding that long standing tenants sign up to inflexible agreements and claiming they're working in the landlord's best interest.
