Where to begin? This agency is appalling. I was trying to purchase a property with them, some issues came up through the local searches re: planning permissions and covenants. They kept phoning me up and trying to put pressure to move things along and I could not understand why the process was stuck - turns out seller was using the solicitor recommended by the estate agent and when we were chasing for answers they advised us that the clients were becoming annoyed by the legal queries being asked...I tried to explain to them we could not proceed without the necessary documentation as our lender required it from vendor. In the meantime the house went up on the market again unbeknowst to us and while they still had our offer on the table the property was advertised as available. Seller gazumped us. Turns out the agent had double-played us all along against another buyer. Ended up losing the house, legal and survey fees. Do not use them.

I have rented from Rayners for nearly 14 years and really can't recommend them highly enough. Not only are they always very helpful when we need and prompt to respond, but also leave us alone for the rest of time, which is just the perfect combo. ...

The fees seemed more than reasonable for the service offered. They actually went out of their way to meet my requirements and take my needs seriously. Very quick email response time and no petty requirements.
