It is interesting to look over the reviews here. Clearly the agents woke up to the fact that there were a series of appalling reviews, around May last year, and they began to respond. And simultaneously, there miraculously appeared a group of glowing reviews! How ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Disgusting service and a disgusting company, how they are still in business I do not know but I have a feeling they won't be for much longer. Rude people who have no idea what the law is, the good comments are clearly written by the staff. Highly recommend to go to anyone but chimneys

I am so surprised to read the negative reviews of this agency, as in ten years of renting properties, Chimneys have been simply outstanding. They have been more than a professional business, they are understanding, patient, and in all of our dealings genuinly very caring. ...

Chimneys were asked to value this property in Childrey. As soon as the valuer arrived she was informed that they had somebody for the property from the village and they wanted to let it to them. They explained that Chimneys had been recommended by a tenant of Chimneys and on that basis the valuer remained and gave a verbal valuation. After walking round the house she suggested that they asked anything they wanted to know abouit lettings because otherwise she may talk too much. They replied th ...

After a long time, I'm finally deciding to review Chimneys... Being their tenants was one of the worst experience in our life. It went wrong from the very beginning, back in 2008 : because they suspected our mover to be untrustworthy, they refused to hand over the ...

Unfortunately by the time most people read the reviews the damage has invariably been done. Chimneys, as agents, are a disgrace to their profession. They are a joke. Extremely unprofessional, rude, liars...the worse experience ever. I am a respectible business man and they (in ...

‘John’ & ‘Jenny’ are a couple. They were thoroughly shown over the property by the owner and a Chimneys’ staff member. They agreed a much reduced rent & a shorter let with the owner in return for an early entry date, they agreed they would move kitchen units & activate the alarm at their own expense. Despite signing our Terms & Conditions, ‘John’ refused to allow us to take up a bank ref saying they had £100,000 in the bank etc. They believed t ...

Rude, unprofessional, ignorant. Responses were initially on a 'over' friendly first name basis but as soon as we wanted to check out the draft tenancy agreement it went downhill from there. All of a sudden we were deemed to be too hard and untrustworthy. When ...

Deposits are sent out within seven working days with an accompanying statement of receiving all the stamped and receipted final bills such as gas, electric etc in accordance with the Tenancy Agreement. THis is done to avoid black marks against the property which can cause incoming tenants to have to pay large deposits to British Gas, Southern Electric etc. Hardly fair play to new occupants. By law all deposits have to be registered with one of three government shemes. If a tenant feels unhap ...
