We are all very disappointed, here at CHK Mountford, to read this review. CHK Mountford hold deposits as stakeholder under the rules laid down by ARLA and TDS. These rules do mean that we are unable to release any of the deposit without written consent from both the Tenant and the Landlord in order to protect both parties. When, as in this case, a number of damage issues have been raised by the independent inventory clerk at the check out, these matters have to be looked into, or atten ...

As with any bad review of our Company – fortunately a rare occurrence, we immediately looked into the matter to establish the cause of such disagreement. In this case, it seems that you have an issue with an Inventory Clerk's costs rather than ‘lettings agents' in particular. It's reassuring to know for CHKM and all other letting agents that you took your viewpoint to an independent arbitrator – Tenancy Dispute Service, as they gave you their view, which was that the cost ...

CHK Mountford are very upset at the claims made by people on this page and invite them to speak to us directly should they in any way feel disatisfied with any part of our service. Our fees are below the 'Surbiton' average and our staff fully trained ARLA members with numerous letters of personal thanks from both tenants and landlords for our services and beyond. We are members of the TDS and therefore should any tenant query any deposit return they can utilise the system inplace and take matt ...
