From start they were unprofessional, arriving late to the viewing and I should have passed this agent based on this alone. The bathroom door lock was broken and unsafe as it could fall on my little ones but it took 4 months to get fixed which is unacceptable. Fridge was not working properly throughout and complaint went unresolved. Oven was not heating up and complaint was resolved after 10 days and that also I had to pay, and couple of months later get accused that I have not paid, when I ...

Efficient,effective,excellent! I recently contacted Underwoods Town and County following a arduous struggle to rent out one of my properties without an agent. I spent many months of my own time and money attempting to self manage this property with little joy or benefit. After several unsuccessful meetings with other agents about listing my property I was speaking with a friend who recommended speaking with Lee Bosley at Underwoods Town and County as she had several managed properties with...

Underwoods have provided me with a top class service from the start, they have always been willing to help and go above and beyond to make sure I was happy. As this was the first time of me renting a property I was really unsure on how the process works and what I need to do, underwoods were really helpful and made sure I understood each stage of the application process and answered any questions I had. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly and it really made everything easier for a fi...

This agent is just bad!!! We were perspective tenants and were told that our financials were fine, I am a funded PhD student, and I also work for the university. My partner also works for a university and we have substantial savings, we have no bad credit etc. At the time we were told that our financials were fine and it would be ok. I paid the deposit - a massively overboard amount of £250, later we found out we were refused, due to our financials. We ended up going with another respectab...

Anyone looking to have an agent manage the letting of your property in Northamptonshire would do well to have the team at Underwoods Town & County do that for you. They have consistently secured us professional, caring tenants in all three of our apartments over the last three years and our Property Co-Ordinator went above and beyond liaising with an adjoining neighbour who's blocked downpipe created a damp issue in one of our apartments.

Naomi Stokes has been extremely helpful through the 18 months of renting, she has always been polite and professional, and is a credit to Underwoods.

I only have 1 property that I let out and it soon becomes apparent that you are just become a number after the honeymoon period. The communication between various agents (property management and accounts) is terrible and the fees they charge for i.e recieving yr end accounts (£60) is just ridiculous for such a simple job. There were several instances from which their mistakes cost me more money and inconvenience. After one instance that required attention all i got was a phone call at 1...

Terrible service from day one. I don\'t know why I didn\'t see it as a sign. On viewing the property I waited 45 mins after the arranged time for someone to show me round, nobody appeared so when I called I was told that someone had come and I was not there. I had been sat outside the house for the whole time and saw no one. They then said that the agent had gone to the wrong house and that someone would be there shortly. When looking round we noticed the carpet was very dirty and needed properl...

The property has rising damp which I informend the agency over a year ago and the main person they use to fix/mend properties is unprofessional and unreliable. So just hope nothing needs any work in your property. The only reason I would use this agent again is that they seem to have a almost a monopoly in this and surrounding areas....

The s were helpful from the start. However they charged us 250 administration fee, which in my view is a lot of money for the service they offer. They also charge any additional costs, for instance 60 pounds to visit the house if anything needs to be fixed. Also, one member of staff was unfriendly to me today (Corine, red haired lady). (it must be said that the house was in very good condition, but we are paying nearly 600pounds a month)...

Please contact the office for another breakdown of the costs that explains what you were charged, we are more than happy to supply you with another copy. No tenant is charged for a contractor to attend a property, unless the reason an item that requires attention is the tenant's responsibilty. I am not sure why you wo....

Some years ago I rented a property for myself with Underwoods and found them a really nice company to deal with as they were always polite and helpful. Therefore, some years after this, when I was in a position of being a landlord myself, I immediately went to Underwoods to manage my property for me. Over the last 3+ years they have been absolutely amazing. I moved to France hence why I was renting out my property and they managed the property for me very professionally. The staff are always pol...

Underwoods Town and County are such a wonderful agent to rent with. People I know who are tenants with other agents always seem to have problems but I happily tell them what a pleasure it is to rent from Underwoods. I have rented from them for 7 years now and wouldn\'t rent from anyone else. A massive thank you and pat on the back should go to Naomi Stokes. She is a credit to the company and is great at her job and Underwoods should feel very proud and privileged to have her working for them...

The rating is a little innaccurate here as I have to have at least one star.Anyway my experience with this letting agency has been absolutely awful.Before moving into the property I had to pay £545.00 for the application fee and deposit combined.As a student this is a lot of money , most agents would only charge £200 deposit and one wonders what the \'application fee\' is actually for if the property was found and applied for by the tenant.Upon securing the property I paid a summer r...

I felt she really had no interest in handling my query at all. We notified them a week ago now about our broken boiler, and having called them again today and was told that someone will be called today to fix it, but could not tell me when it will be fixed. It is November and very cold. The member of staff was very eager to end the conver...

We have been letting our property for 6 years. Initially we experienced a very poor service from another Letting Agent and were just planning on leaving them when, luckily for us, the company was sold to Underwoods. From this moment onwards we have been very impressed with the service that we have received. As we live many miles away from Northampton, it gives us great peace of mind knowing that our property is in very capable hands. After a long tenancy our original tennants moved out, this ...

When searching for a property, I didn\'t really think about which estate agent to go with, as presumed all would provide a similar level of service... I now know better, so please do consider carefully. If you\'re considering Underwoods, go for it! Their reviews on here seem genuine and not as if written by the agents like some (see Ashby Lowry!). Underwoods were approachable and helpful from the start. And they were patient as we looked around a lot of flats that were identical! When w...

Your company had plenty of opportunity to respond to my complaints accordingly whilst I was a tenant. Sadly they failed to do this, hence my poor review. I got the result I wanted in the end, namely getting my full deposit back and no longer having to deal with the substandard level of service your agents provided. I also don't see how you can fairly look into any of, as you call them, my allegations when your company's level of record keeping and ability to pass messages on to the relevan....

Their professionalism, support and advice in dealing with the eviction enabled the whole process to proceed smoothly and with minimum of stress for me. I did not have to employ the services of a solicitor. All the staff were most helpful in any queries or concerns I had.
