Savills Islington must be the worst letting agency I have ever rented a property through. To begin with - they charge ridiculous fees for renewals of lease (£100+VAT) just to print off the same lease, the do not even review the inventory.

Secondly, on the management side of things - there are ridiculously USELESS. The "managing agent" works part time and is NEVER at work. We had a water leak in our bedroom over three months ago which they have failed to repair - there is now an unsightly hole where the wall has disintegrated... They don\'t care. Also, there was a shower blockage due to old plumbing which they initally wrote off as my fault - saying that I must a be "very hairy person" and that\'s what blocked the drain - how ridiculous (for the record - I have short thin hair & my boyfriend is bald). THe plumber had to make a statement in writing to say that old unserviced plumbing was the issue.

Don\'t even think about using this agency. They are lazy and will rip you off and treat you like dirt as a tenant.
What agent could do to change your mind?
THey could at least do their job. Thats all we ask. Seriously, three months to fix water damage? ???
