Possibly the worst 30 days of my life trying to let a property from these $@~A!?!!
Me and my Mrs unfortunately spotted a lovely house that was for rent via Archer Bassett in Coventry.
After parting with £250 to reserve the property, we then started a one month paperwork process with the most incompetent, deceitful, petty, uncompromising (would not accept my current mortgage statement as a proof of address!) bunch of $@~A!?! I have ever met.
After they allegedly didn\'t lose various items in the post from my guarantor (who wasn\'t even needed from their viewpoint!?!) we finally gave up!
At this point they then started to beg !?!..... to get us to move in.... they asked if our guarantor (who lives 200 miles away) could drive up to Coventry to sign some irrelevant documents. (with only two hours left in the business day and before our supposed move in date).
They kept £250 for their troubles, nice business if you can get it.
p.s. i should have relied on my initial hunch and feeling about them..... (The front sliding entrance door of their main lettings property in Greyfriars road is broken and has to be manually opened!)
If the estate agents front door needs repairing.....what is the likely-hood of getting prompt, hassle free emergency repairs done on the property that you rent from them?
Steer clear of these, unless you want premature heart bypass surgery.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Improve their service by a factor of 100
