We were please the agents found the tenant quickly, but other issues have led me to be wary of using them again or recommending Andrews. I feel the agents were not clear or honest with me or my tenant.

As a new landlord I asked all the costs involved. I was simply told 2 weeks rent and 8% of the rent if I wanted management.
When I got the papers, it turned out it is a months rent if not managed. The management fee also went up to 10%. Also a Gas certificate and EPC would be required (and hugely inflated cost), and other things 'highly recommended'.
The costs had tripled from my initial inquiry, by which time it was too late to do anything about it. When I got the bill VAT had been added on top of the fee which was not mentioned on the printed agreement.
Whilst the costs are probably fair and inline with other agents, they were all concealed until the agreement and then bill arrived, a week or so before the tenant was due to move in.

Some furniture/white goods had been left in the property, which we told the agent we would move out, however the agent told the tenant that they would be left and so they were disappointed when they arrived to find them gone, as they did not have their own.

Numerous emails to the agents were not replied to.

If you are to use this or any agent I would recommend you get all the costs in writing and photocopy and documents you sign prior to returning them to the agents, particularly if any part is hand written and could be amended afterwards.

Review for Andrews in Hastings, East Sussex. I can only assume the 4 star reviews on Andrews' own website are fake - AVOID ANDREWS AT ALL COSTS. We had a year long tenancy to rent a flat through Andrews. If they ever need something from you, ...

Provided an enthusiastic and confident appraisal of my flat. That and the nice visible centrally located premises and optimistic approach to the instruction were the main reasons for my choice of agent. A good offer was achieved within three weeks during a normally slow time ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
1. Returning calls. We all get busy, but failing to return calls one many occasions isn't acceptable. 2. there were several times when a course of action was agreed with an agent, only to find it hadn't been carried out or information wasn't communicated to the team. I would recommend when something is agreed it be carried out and the team updated. 3. You have at least two staff members who need customer service training, being argumentative with a client is unprofessional.
