As soon as I went for a viewing through Foxtons, they (3 different people) were bombarding me with phone calls. Their sales tactics were way too aggressive and pushy which was a turn off. Not only that, they contacted my landlady right away and told her that I was planning to move out and that there were others interested in moving into the flat so she should call Foxtons asap! That was completely out of line so I deregistered with Foxtons right away. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Foxtons have a reputation for being the most bullish, arrogant, aggressive and over priced agent in the UK. In the mistaken belief that aggression shifts a property fast I called up Foxtons in St. John's Wood. I was instantly bullied into signing a contract and ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Here are my recommendations for how the agents can improve their service in the future: 1. BE HONEST with the tenant about the realities of the flat (for example: how much utility bills typically are, any hidden "quirks", etc). I found out a lot of things about the flat that I wish I had known prior to signing my lease after the fact. 2. Keep lines of communication open with the tenant. After I paid, the agents disappeared. They seemed annoyed when I reached out to them and dismissed all my questions including how to handle difficult interactions with my landlord. The whole experience made me feel like I wasted my money. Consequently I gave negative feedback about Foxtons to all of my contacts who were looking for accommodation in London. 3. Ask for feedback from tenants when they leave a property about what their experience was with the flat, the landlord, and Foxtons. Actively try to improve so that you can provide better service and grow your business.

What agent could do to change your mind?
They should have waivered the tenancy agreement fee of ‚£350 plus VAT. Daylight robbery charging excessive fees bearing in mind I asked to use my own contracts prior to the tenants moving in and mentioned this numerous times to James in the office. ‚£420 per contract that is standard and only the tenants name, address and moving in date is amended and then printed. my solicitor is cheaper by the hour and this takes 2 minutes to draft. I will never use this office again now unless this fee is waivered and I am refunded in full.

A few lessons in genuine customer service could improve the company. Fulfilled there side of the contract to ensure i was living in a safe, clean. mice free flat. Given me the correct information at the time of asking, not threatening legal action without apologizing to me for THEIR MISTAKE. (This is documented.) Cleaned the flat (as stated in the contract) Not get some lazy cleaner to wipe the work surface.

When you move into the property you should check the inventory schedule and mark any changes within 7 days of receiving the report. The reason a report is created is to avoid any problems at the end of the tenancy. Think ahead next time... Foxtons have been in business a while and await innocent tenants to 'rip' them off. Check all you paper work and if you dont agree with something... then make the necessary alterations and send it back to them. ...
