This agent is Beyond poor, not only for lettings but also selling. If you want to pay top whack to sell your home & do all the work yourself then this is the place to go. They; - don't return calls - provide inaccurate information - don't follow up on viewings or offers - are expensive - staff are rude - don't give a damn about you or your prospective buyers. All in all, if you want to sell your home I would suggest you go somewhere else. I am very surprised these 'agents' are still in ...

Definitely the worst estate agents we ever had to deal with. Very poor customer service, all girls working in Leighton Buzzard office are rude, arrogant and incompetent. Also their make up is more appropriate for a night out rather than office work We were made to moved into a filthy, dirty house. Spent full day scrubbing all cupboards in the kitchen before I could actually put anything in. Bathroom was in absolutely disgusting state including urine marks on the toilet seat and tiles around.

Left me with smelly carpets - claimed they have been washed. Apartment had been smoked in, so a very horrible smell. 7 months later i've been advised they there are no keys for the meter cabinet and I need to ask a neighbour (even though someone submitted my meter readings just a few weeks ago). Bathroom floor had mould underneath before i moved in and have been told I may have to pay for it after an inspection. Waited for inspector to inspect property 2 days in a row and he never turned up - al...

Its easier to explain how awful Squares are if you read the letter I sent their Director. I did hand deliver a letter initially to them and it was ignored. I explained how upset I was and could they please contact me to find a solution. They ignored it. Below is the letter to one of the directors/founders Leon Hill who came back to say, he was very surprised as he has never had any complaints previously. Clearly he hasnt come across this site then! Dear Mr Hill, We were due to rent 49 M...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Advertise letting dates correctly and inform people when they inquire. People give notice on current flats based on ability to move into a new one. Squares would have left us stranded for 3 days with a family of 2 boys. They should not be so rude and unhelpful for no reason. They could have been more accommodating but choose not to and surely the previous tenants would have had to clean the flat before they left so why were we being asked to do it?

Luckily I have just finished renting a property through squares leighton buzzard and will no longer have to deal with their rudeness, incompetence and lethargy. How this company is still in business I do not know. They never, ever keep you updated or fulfil any of their duties or promises. They are rude on the phone and do business with such an air of arrogance that is unbelievable. I rented a house through squares for 12 months and from start to finish it was a nightmare. The moving in ...

Justin from Squares helped me find a buyer for my property very quickly. He has influential communication skills and managed to secure viewings despite some hesitation from the tenants. He advised me on the new sales procedure which I was not familiar with and also recommended trusted electrical and gas suppliers to provide electrical/gas certificates. He also dealt promptly with any issues I had and managed to secure the full asking price for my property....

Squares let my property recently. I hadn\'t used an agent for about 2 years, because I got fed up with the poor quality of tenant enquiries, but I was actually pleasantly surprised with Squares. They came within a cat\'s whisker of renting it to the first person to view it, but when they pulled out Squares found another tenant in just 4 days. That potentially saved me a lot of lost rent. Thanks!...

I have been overwhelmed by how professional Squares in LB handled my buying experience even though the property was outside my local area. Throughout the entire process I was kept up to date and notified of any milestones as soon as they happened. The vendor\'s solicitors were a bit slow throughout the process but Squares chased them up on a weekly basis and even hand delivered the documents on a couple of occasions to speed things up. To which the vendor asked if I paid extra for the \'special ...

Overall we have had a totally shocking experience with Squares Estate Agents using them as both letting agents and finally selling our property. As letting agents they do the bare minimum to get their 10% monthly fee. Rarely did they keep us informed of what was going on with the property to the point that at one stage our tentants went 3 days without electricity because they failed to arrange a fuse being replaced. During the sale of the property they agreed that as \'valuable customers\'...

As soon as I told people in the local area that i had applied for a property through Squares I was surprised to find almost everybody i told had a negative comment to make about Squares as an agent, after dealing with them over the past weeks I now know why. After viewing a property we decided to make an application and rung squares to arrange dates and pay the admin/holding fee of £227. The moving date had been agreed with the landlord and current tenant at the prospective property so we...

I am not naive enough to think that mistakes do not happen, the important thing is how they are rectified. Regular contact with us on this matter as reassurance would have made all the difference. There is however no excuse for the rude way in which my partner was spoken to by a female member of staff and it is also not acceptable to blatantly ignore e-mails and phone calls from customers.

They did almost a similar thing to us, advertised flat as available end of September and as we had to move out 2nd October 2014 this was perfect timing. Rude woman told my husband SHE would decide when we moved in not us.... said it would take 5 days to clean flat and we either liked it or paid for cleaner ourselves.....

Hi all, We use Squares lettings in Bletchley and Milton Keynes to manage all of our properties. We have 7 properties and did have them with another agent before we came across Justin and his team. The other agent was not that bad but were not up to scratch on all of the latest info etc. Squares on the other hand are and in my opinion are second to none. We hardly ever have any voids and if we don't want the stress on certain properties Justin will guarantee our rent for us. These guys are goo...

I can highly recommend Squares CMK after inviting 3 local agents to value my property I selected to us Squares as I found the agent to be un pushy and take time to appreciate my property and clearly was able to understand the type of person that would purchase my house. After just one week of my house being on the Market I received an offer that was accepted, which was very close to the asking price. Throughout the sale Squares followed the chain through to completion and kept me fully up dated ...

I've met some slippery, shoddy estate and letting agents in my life, but these were beyond bad. Initial impressions seemed okay - they were very helpful in setting up a viewing and actually getting me a rental property that was suitable. However, from the point I paid my fees (damned expensive, I might add), it all went downhill. The lettings management seems to be run by a shockingly rude, incompetent, ignorant woman called Natalie. If you're paying for a service you expect people to be pol...

Worst estate agents ever. Staff change monthly due to poor management and shoddy service. With a 3 yearly rental we saw 12 different lettings staff. That alone is enough to worry. Major problems; Rude and unhelpful staff Non existent property maintenance Lying and untrustworthy staff Breaching privacy rules I shall expand. Upon rental the garden was full of rubbish. Promised removal which never occurred. Upon leaving trying to charge us for it. Garden was also...

I have to say in all my years of renting property that Squares is positively the worst agent I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. The property on moving in was filthy and none of the work agreed had been completed and in fact took about 6 months to complete. One piece of work took a year! The staff particularly the girls who worked on lettings were beyond rude and even when the error was clearly theirs there was never an apology and their rude tone continued throughout any dealings wi...

Without a doubt, the worst Estate Agent I have ever dealt with. I was made to move into a filthy flat, even after notifying them that the flat needed to be cleaned prior to move in. 4 hours had to be spent, by 2 people, cleaning a 2 bedroom flat, on move in day to bring the flat up to an acceptable standard. Items damaged to the point of being un-usable by the previous teneant we not raised on the previous tenants move out inspection, so when I reported them, Squares refused to pay out, and I wa...
