It has been a really good time dealing with Adrian Parkin in Canary Wharf branch. Adrian helps my mate and me find a lovely place in Canary Wharf within the price range we can accept and of a good quality. Before that, he took us to a few other properties in the area. It might be a coincidence that we were happy with every property we viewed with Adrian. I think he had a very good understanding of the need of his clients. I would certainly recommend Atkinson Mcleod to my friends and would like to deal with Adrian again when this tenancy finishes.

Comment on agent fees
BAD. There is no transparency on tenancy renewal fees charged by Atkinson McLeod to landlords – the director of branch was unable to provide a detailed summary of what the charge covers, reverting to the fact that their terms allow them to charge fees even though I am not receiving a service(!). As per the date of this review, 3rd June 19, Atkinson McLeod has not made public in their website the fact that their trading terms charges tenancy renewal fees to landlords when they are not providing tenancy renewal services. Such a practice, Atkinson McLeod should make aware in advance to both landlords and tenants, condition highlighted in bold in all contracts, as the letting agent trading terms have practical consequences for both landlord and tenant such as loss of earnings for the landlord and loss of a home for the tenant as the landlord will have no choice but to give the tenant notice rather than tolerate bad service and poor /unethical business practices by this letting agent.
