In short, I have been absolutely disgusted with the manner in which Regent Estates have conducted themselves and the poor customer service provided. I would strongly advise anyone looking to sell or buy a property in Berkhamsted to avoid using Regent Estates.

With regard to letting the flat, I am still trying to ascertain whether they conducted quarterly checks of the property, as their contractual obligations required.

As such, I put the property back on the market with Oakleys approximately three weeks later. They agreed a sale with buyers that had originally viewed the flat with Regents. On discussing this with Regents, negotiations became markedly distasteful. I was accused of '

There is a leech in this estate agents that will find as many ways as to suck your deposit out of you. A cynical little man. The other estate agents in Berkhamsted are far more fair and honest. Avoid this company if you can....
