Atkinson McLeod, Balham are the worst estate agents we have ever dealt with. They rented a flat for us in Balham and the service we received was terrible. We had to write out own property description as their one was written by the guy that did not come to view the property and therefore did not reflect the actual look of the flat. They never call after viewings to give you an update, we had to call over and over again trying to find out what was going on, if they had any viewings arranged, what the feedback was etc. when they finally got a tenant, for 20% less rent than they quoted us we would get, the service became even worse- they arranged gas certificate, they were quick to take the payment but we are still chasing the original certificate to be given to us. The inventory was so badly written, we had to rewrite it twice, and had to pay £200 for the privilege. We are still waiting for the original contract to be given to us, and the deposit to be paid to us. The staff in the office don't have a clue how to run the business, don't know answers to the most simple questions, the whole thing is a complete shambles. We will never use them again, what a waste of time and effort. We resent we have to pay them the lettings fee, as we did most of the work anyway but at least we will never use them again. If you value your time, stay well away from Atkinson McLeod Balham.
