It is always difficult to comment on reviews from anonymous submissions but I am sorry that you have not had a positive experience. Unfortunately, not all tenants are suitable for all of our landlords and properties, and we do have a duty to ensure that all tenants are properly vetted and approved. We do work hard to ensure that our applicants are kept well informed throughout the process, but unfortunately cannot comment on this actual case as we do not know the circumstances or applicant detai ...

If you would like to contact me personally, I will do all I can to resolve your issues but cannot do much without further information, or your full name? For the record though, our tenancy fees are by far the cheapest in the area at only £50 per adult for referencing. ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Keep promises. Keep customers informed regarding property viewings. Advise customers of letting procedures. Perhaps I have misunderstood the process somewhere along the line? Be respectful over the phone.
