I live in a flat managed by Sterling Property and the service has been appalling. The one good thing is that the staff are friendly and appear helpful, but the good point(s) end there. Agency fees are extremely high. The maintenance department have never responded quickly to urgent repairs. A leaking water tank took over three weeks to repair and damaged the surrounding walls. Damp reported in November was not followed up until the following year. Broken guttering and masonry from storm damage months ago is still unrepaired. When I ring to follow up reports it appears maintenance requests had been forgotten about or not logged in the system. One of the worst letting agents I have ever rented with.

Dear Abd-Rahman, I am very disappointed to read the above review, we held the property for over 4 weeks, you failed to make contact with us and also failed to turn up to our key issue meeting, after numerous attempts to contact you we had no option but to put the property back on the market. Should you wish to discuss further please feel free to give me a call. ...

Sterling Estates Management fail to hold residents meetings. They have not done this for many years. They have made Sterling Investments and Shalim Ahmed directors of the management company and so basically Shalim can dictate to residents what Sterling Estates Management fee is and to keep themselves on as managing agents. They provide service charge and months later have not produced accounts to explain the charges. ...

I had exactly the same experience! After a year my rent was increased by £25 p/m (not a problem). They took out the old amount by accident and i was harrased every day by phone and had letters sent to me for this £25! But when it was the other way around and i wanted my deposit, the splendid Becky response was 'it will take however long it takes'!. Anyway glad i dont have to deal with these guys again :) ...
