Hands down to the rudest, most incompetent staff I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. The issues with the property I rented for a short period of time were extensive. When I approached Keats to resolve the issues they did nothing and even lied to us about when they would be fixed! It took two months for them to fix the heating during bitterly cold winter months!!! The property was poorly maintained and they even tried to withhold my deposit despite me leaving the property in a better state of repair than when I initially moved in!!

I can't be bothered to rant anymore but if you're thinking of using this company do yourself a favour and don't!!

It was interesting reading your comments and I would like to thank you for your time. We do not leave tenant without heating and would do everything possible to maintain the property to the highest standard. I would like to comment on you point.
“The property was poorly maintained and they even tried to withhold my deposit despite me leaving the property in a better state of repair than when I initially moved in”
This is the reason why we carry out a fully independent inventory before and after any tenancy to safeguard both the landlords and tenants. We do not withhold deposits as we do not hold deposits. I’m sure you would recognize this as we would have advised you when you vacated the property

Comment on agent fees
I feel that the fees are on the high side when compared with range of fees charged by other agents that we use. It has not arisen in respect of this tenancy, as the tenants have been at the property for very many years, but I would like to see agents being more imaginative in the terms that are offered to tenants, at least after a probationery period. For example, why not a 2-year tenancy with a tenant-only break clause after a year or a one-year tenancy with a tenant-only break clause after six months.Agents should be prepared to offer. This gives flexibility for tenants and may avoid the landlord being faced with renewal fees or accepting a statutory periodic tenancy.

It is always sad to read bad comments or have anyone thinking negative thoughts about our services. We do take every client and tenant as an individual and try to meet their expectations. I have read your comments and am looking into this case to find out why we failed you in so many ways. I am so glad that you took the time in writing down and sharing your experience as it gives us the chance to see how we can improve. I think it only fair to say that we are one of the oldest independent E ...
