Hi , I would like to warn people about these very naughty individuals, they are like water rats , always there , ready to pounce on the unsuspecting honest folk. They have used every legal way to minimise their responsibility as a landlord in their own right , and will try anything not to have to spend cash on their own property , they take your cash and never deal with any complaints. They have a terrible reputation , especially where they have their holiday home in North Devon , no loca...

Essentially these people are sailing close to the wind , they will go back on verbal agreements, not supply a contract on time and generally try to put one over on you, be very wary before you deal with them , they employ very unsavoury agents to hassle you....

Horrible bullies. Even though I should have had nothing to do with these people I had the misfortune to buy my own property next door to one of their properties. They were new builds and I was quickly threatened with legal action over the height of the fence. I had put time and effort into gathering the correct documentation in regard to legislation concerning such issues, and with backup from the planning officer at the council I fired back several key points pointing out how wrong they were...

These people are rude, vile and unhelpful, I cant believe they lasted so long in business..and I will certainly do my homework next time before I rent.. just wish I had seen this site before... We rented through chimneys for 11 months and our Landlord was Richard Cowan.. They were OK in the beginning but after a few phone calls they quickly became rude and unhelpful.. we experienced genuine issues with the property that the landlord needed to put right ranging from chronic damp problems in my 2...

The whole 5 years we rented, this estate agent did not come to inspect the house once until we gave 65 days notice, despite the fact that decorating was supposed to be done in the first year. We struggled to get any problems sorted out such as the oven did not work for 2 months and a hot plate was disintegrating and was not fixed until we found a stove of our own to buy and were about to replace theirs, and the patio doors would not open easily so that the handle keeps breaking off and we had to...

I agree with every negative comment made about Chimneys staff and confirm that they are not exagerating. You wonder why people who have been in business so long would need to lie since they already make enough money without resorting to dirty tactics but incredible and pointless as it seems they will make up all sorts of lies to try keep your house deposit. Rent from them at your peril. And I saw them showing prospective clients around the property they were trying to rent and made no effort to ...

I have let properties through Chimneys for over 10 years & have not had any problems. Tenants seem to think they can abuse the property & upon leaving wonder why the deposit is disputed. As a landlord I have seen this, eg tenant used bed to do ironing on & went to answer phone.Who should pay for this damage? A very proffesional company in my view....

I have been renting through Chimneys for the last 4 years. I have found them (Rachel in particular) to be helpful, efficient and professional. If there have been any problems within the property they are quick to make sure it is fixed to a high standard. I have and will continue to recommned Chimneys as a letting agent to anyone and look forward to another year of a successful tenancy with them....

Over the past 6 years I have had several tenants and have never had any complaints from any of them regarding maintenance work not being carried out o...

We recently rented a flat for a year through Chimneys and I must say that it was a very straightfotrward experience which is more than can be said for some agents we have used in the past. The application process was clear & transparent - no hiddedn fees, everything was laid out in the application form. We signed the contracts and got the keys without any fuss. At the end of the year we were checked out by John again without an effort to stick us for painting a room because we had made some ...
