We were purchasing a property that was marketed with this agent. All the staff at the Pontefract office were accommodating, from making the first viewing, through to liaising with the vendor in order to answer our queries. The chain hit a bit of a rocky point where Solicitors seemed to be struggling to speak to each other and decide on a completion date; this is where Donna stepped in and did all she could to push forward a date and get things back on track. We would thank all the staff, especia...

We were very pleased with Jason Kent's professional manner when the initial sale process began. Elizabeth Cooke was allocated to the sale of the property and was totally professional throughout the whole process. We were very impressed with her manner both on the telephone and in person. She knew every detail and hiccup of our sale and gave us frequent, much needed updates and support. Thank you for all your help, it was very much appreciated....

Comment on agent fees
Our property was sold within two days of going on the market therefore the fees seem very high given the amount of input initially provided by the sales team. However, the process to completion lacked pace and tenacity so we were very grateful for the professional support we received from Elizabeth during this frustrating time.

If it had not been for Elizabeth i would have probably withdrawn from the sale.

I got the impression that Lisa was genuinely interested in our house selling experience and made herself available to have a conversation and chase up any matters which we deemed to be 'slow' in terms of the conveyancing aspect of the sale. Happy to recommend the agent & Lisa personally! Thanks...

I made the right decision to use Kendall's to sell my mother's house. New premises on High Street create a good first impression. Marketing of the property appeared comprehensive. Their high level of resources meant they could accommodate prospective buyers at most time during the week and relieved me of any responsibility to attend viewings, exactly as I wanted. Sarah was friendly, efficient and professional and regularly kept me informed of developments during the process. Thanks Sarah....

I've previously purchased a property through Richard Kendall and this time I was using them to sell an investment property. It's a property that we had re-listed for sale having completely renovated it and Richard Kendall sold it very quickly. Catherine Kilbride was ruthlessly efficient (and when she was unavailable Lucy Harrison was also brilliant). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Richard Kendall - by far the best agent in this area - others don't come close...

I have just sold my house with Richard Kendall in Wakefield. My advisor was Elizabeth Cooke. Elizabeth was great. She was very tenacious in chasing all the parties, and kept me up to date on what was happening and what needed to happen. As these things do, they always take longer than anticipated, but she dealt with my moans in a very professional but happy demeanour. I would definitely use Richard Kendall and especially Elizabeth again....

Nothing was left unanswered and Kelly really did go that extra mile to help in any way she could which we hadn't found in any other estate agents when we were looking for a home. Words are not enough to express our gratitude they are all just wonderful and we highly recommend them....

Complaints Procedure

OUR COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE


 


We are committed to providing a high quality Estate Agency service to all our clients and members of the public.  When something goes wrong we need you to tell us about it.  This will help us to improve our standards.


If you have a complaint, please write to the Manager of the office about which you have the complaint – either Wakefield, Ossett, Horbury or Normanton and they will deal with your complaint.


What will happen next?


 



  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging your complaint, within 3 working days and will ask you to confirm or explain any further details we need. 

  2. We will record your complaint in our central register and open a file for your complaint.  We will do this within 2 working days of receiving your complaint.

  3. We will then, promptly, start to investigate your complaint.  A formal written outcome of our investigation will be sent to you within 15 working days of the receipt of your complaint.  Our investigation may involve one or more of the following steps:


 



  • We may ask the member of staff who acted for you to reply to your complaint.

  • We may examine their reply and the information in your complaint file.  We may then ask them for more information.  This will take up to 3 working days from receiving their reply and the file.


 



  1. We may feel it beneficial to invite you to meet with us to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint.  We will do this within 3 working days of receiving all the details we need from the member of staff who acted for you.

  2. Within 3 working days of the meeting we will write to confirm what took place and any solutions we have agreed with you.  If you do not want a meeting, it is not possible or it is considered not necessary, we will send you a detailed reply to your complaint. 

  3. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you can contact us again.  Our Partners Claire Kendall and Simon Kendall will then arrange to review our decision within 10 working days.  In the event that the complaint is about, or involves Claire Kendall or Simon Kendall, then Richard Kendall, The Principal will review our decision instead.

  4. We will let you know the result of the review within 5 working days of the end of the review.  At this time we will write to you confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.  We will also provide you with the Consumer Guide provided by Property Ombudsman for Estate Agents.  A copy of the The Property Ombudsman’s Code of Practice for Residential Estate Agents will also be provided to you, upon request. 


 


If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.
