Quick to process my application but then failed to respond to SIX attempts to establish if property has a phone-point (either by e-mail or phone).

Also promised THREE times to send copy of tenancy agreement for me to inspect before moving in but a MONTH later I'm still waiting. When asked to speak to manager about issue then told "I said I'd send it to you NOT I have sent it to you".

No wonder estate agents are regarded about as higly as MPs

Been in the property now for 3 weeks. For the first 2 weeks I had no heating. Now I have heating as long as I don't want it on overnight.

Had to ask for an inventory. When it arrived it was dated 28.06.2008. Nothing wrong with that you might think. Except that I moved in on 01.09.2009. The inventory did not reflect the condition of the property whatsoever. Many items had been removed or were heavily soiled when they were described as in good condition.

No curtain rail gliders with which to hang curtains (I'd asked about curtains at the viewing and was assured everything was OK - curtains were at laundery). Told to go and buy the gliders myself (maintenance of a property is not tenant responsibility). When couldn't find gliders to fit curtain rail I was then told to sort it out myself. Clearly this bunch of muppets have no understanding of the clause "tenant shall not interfere with the fixtures and fittings".

Basically avoid Lewis Wadsworth like the plague. They promise the earth but then treat you with utter contempt.

I am now looking into the possibility of claiming breach of contract so that I can terminate the tenancy.

Having spoken to the manager the requested paperwork arrived the very next day. To be fair, the manager sounded genuinely appalled at how I'd been treated.

Sadly though the paperwork was incorrect: tenancy for 6 months rather than the agreed 12 and 4 of 11 pages from the tenancy agreement were missing !!!

If you use this agent then be prepared to be on their back every step of the way. My advice: deal with the manager (he's the only one that seems to do what he says he's going to do) or simply look elsewhere.

Yet again promises have been broken. Was told I would receive an advance copy of the tenancy by Mon but a week later I'm still waiting (add to the three weeks I've already been waiting after previous requests for this to be done). Was also told the manager would call back to discuss the matter but, you guessed it, four days later and I'm still waiting.

In short they smile whilst making promises and then ignore you.

We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with our service but in our defence do not feel that you have been either fair or accurate with your comments. All problems with properties are promptly reported to our landlords whom we take instruction from. Your landlord has visited the property on several occasions to attend to any issues and instructed a contractor where necessary. The property has had several changes of occupants some of which were in the property without permission and therefore ...

I have read your comments re abandoned car. We can not take responsibility for a car that is parked on your driveway. I have spoken to the council and had a full apology from them as some of the information given out is not correct. You can just see us organising to have a car towed away from a private driveway with no proof of ownership and then somebody wants their car back. we always try and resolve problems but an abandoned car is always very tricky. ...
