I have used Sheldon Bishop as my letting agent for over 20 years and not once have I had reason to complain. I have always had my rent paid on time and at commercial rates. I have found them to be honest, sincere and proactive. Whenever there have been maintenance issues to deal with they have been dealt with quickly, professionally and without fuss. If you want to have an agent that will take away all the hassles of managing your property then this is the agent to be with. All tenants are ...

Hi We used Sheldon Bishop recently to rent out a great flat in Highbury and Islington. We had a bit of problem with the move in, a leak from the upstairs flat but it was dealt with relatively quickly and comprehensively so no complaints there. The vetting and contract signing process was organised and clear which gave us peace of mind when moving in. They also send our deposit money direct to the government scheme DPS and don't keep the monies. We had a problem with a previous rental flat where...

I have been renting a property managed by Sheldon Bishops for 4 years. Besides their professionalism I would like to remark that this agency is different, they are humans as opposed to marketeers. What I mean by this is that you can deal with them as if you were talking to a friend. Flexibility and understanding are two others qualities you will find at Sheldon Bishop. The little problems that I had in my property (nothing to do with the agency), have been always fixed promptly. I've been liv...

I have been renting through Sheldon Bishop for the last seven years. I have rented two different properties they manage and I have to say that they have always looked after me. If there have been any maintenance issues they have been quick to respond and resolve them, I have even go to know the maintenance guys who are as friendly as the guys in the office. When I moved out from my previous property the process of check out deposit return was quick and fair and they found me a great new propert...

My husband and I rented a studio in North West London through Sheldon Bishop in 2014, where we are still living now. We mainly dealt with Danni and she was very professional and friendly throughout our dealings with each other. I appreciated that she didn't try to pressure us into making a decision. Agency fees were reasonable (1 week's rent) and on our move-in day the flat was clean and ready....

Hi I am extremely disappointed that your experience has not been a positive one. We aim at Sheldon Bishop to offer everyone the level of customer service that has served us so well over the last 15 years and this falls well short of that so please accept our apologies. I am unable to verify the nature of your complaint I would like to apologise on behalf of everyone at Sheldon Bishop and if you would like to call me Seth on 0207 226 6639 I can try and establish who you spoke to so I can avoi....

I have been using Sheldon Bishop to rent my property in Crouch End for about 4 years and I have never been disappointed. They have always found me great tenants very quickly and they check out their financial stability too. All the people that work at Sheldon Bishop in Islington are brilliant and I have a very good trusting relationship with them....

I was helping my friend to rent a property back in december 2009, dealt with a number of crooks in sheldon bishop namely, Paulo, Paul Marks, Archie. Once we viewed the property, Paulo, the salesman told us that there was a admin fee, when my mate was discouraged by this, he called the following day and said that he was going to waiver the fee should she wish to put an offer. after a number of negotiations, and meeting with the so called director and manager my friend put down a holding deposit. ...

Shahed - This is Seth Brindle, I am the director of Sheldon Bishop. Your case dates back to a time when Paul Marks was part of the company and he was responsible for the West Hampstead branch. You mention that the directors of Sheldon Bishop have been part of companies declared bankrupt. This is not the case please refrain from using inaccurate information. All companies I have been part of part of past and present have been and are solvent at this time or their time of closure. Your experience....

I am completely shocked at the service given by Sheldon Bishop to both myself, as the tenant, and our landlord. Despite our landlord specificially requesting a certain type of tenant, she was assured that we were a 'perfect fit'. This was sadly not the case (without any slight on either our landlady or ourselves). Requests for removal of items in the property were completely ignored and not mentioned to the landlord. Sheldon Bishop neglected to inform us that the landlady lived above us and that...

What agent could do to change your mind?
- ensure that ALL information is relayed between landlord and tenant - process and provide documentation in a timely manner - pay more attention to your clients' needs and less on simply 'getting your cut'

Hi im sorry to hear that you had a problem with the property. I believe this is a property on Kingsland road. We still rent this property and we are unaware of any displeasere with our service from he landlord. There is no "type of tenant" that is requested by the landlord other than ones whose references indicate the tenants are credit wortjy for the rent ? When tenants request items to be removed from a property it is signed for an a requirements sheet prior to move in and this is e ....

Sheldon Bishop were shambolic from start to finish. A list of improvements that we asked for before we moved in was ignored, and when we did move in not only was the inventory missing but food, clothes and a full bin had been left by the previous tenants (despite promises of a professional clean). The toilet was broken and some of the windows didn't open, all of this was promised to be done for when we moved in. To be absolutely clear, Sheldon Bishop are abysmal. Anyone considering using th...

Hi I'm really sorry for your experience! This falls some way short of what we aim to offer in terns of customer service. I'm unable to verify your comments but if you would like to provide me with the details of the property I will look into this. I do have to mention that the company is under new ownership and management but hopefully we could still establish the facts. We have administered thousands of tenancies over the past 15 years and we luckily have had precious few problems but one....

In response we DO NOT MANGE this property and so were unable legally to write a reference for this tenancy as we couldn't confirm the payments were up to date as we are not in receipt of this reference. As we indicated to you on e mail which we are happy to provide to confirm this, the landlord was in Cyprus and so she was unable to do the reference we called her to get authorisation to do this and when we eventually got through to her we received a positive response from her. I called the tenan....

Sheldon Bishop do not satisfy their obligations as estate agents while negotiating on behalf of prospective tenants. They are happy to show other people around a property that is under offer and in my case they were either acting dishonestly or incompetently. Either way they lacked communication skills and wasted my time....

Hi JB I want to apologise for the experience you have had and wondered if you could verify the property you refer to so we can at least be confident that this grievance is genuine. The Ownership and management structure has changed significantly since you posted this review and we wanted apologise on behalf of the previous and the current team. The nature of this business means that not everyone receives the outcome they desire but we do aim to offer a high level of customer service and if th....

The service was awful. The appliances in the flat were in a terrible state and every time this was mentioned to Sheldon it was effectively ignored for as long as possible. Our oven remained broken for 4 weeks of badgering before it was fixed. They were always rude and at one point even the manager swore at me and hung up the phone. The problems didn't stop after we left as they made getting the damage deposit back very difficult and eventually took money off us for a washing machine that w...

Hi I am so sorry that your experience was a bad one. If you would like to provide details of the tenancy and property we could comment properly and investigate who was responsible. We conduct and administer thousands of tenancies and luckily precious few end up with this sort of feedback. The company is under new ownership and management team but we would like to apologise on behalf of the previous and current team. All deposits are held not by Sheldon Bishop but by the government scheme DPS....

Hi Miles I'm sorry for your experience. If you could verify which property and tenancy this relates to then I'm happy to investigate as we can never verify if these are genuine grievances or people attempting to damage Sheldon bishop for their own benefit. We aim to offer the highest level of customer service and we conduct thousands of tenancies with very few problems of this nature so I'm very unhappy you feel this way and despite this occurring under a previous ownership and management str....

Sheldon Bishop acted as a finding agent for a company called Gilbert Estates to find tennants for a property in Highgate, North London. They fulfilled none of their remit in making sure that the property was in a habitable state. They were only concerned with processing payment and getting their cut. When we moved in the property was in woeful condition, dirty, mouldy, and with broken funiture left by previous tennants. Subsequent flooding due to poor drainage forced us to permanantly va...
