I found Harris Shields to be so bad as a lettings agent that I will never use them again. Slow to fix repairs, and uninterested in taking an out-of-hours call to fix a boiler that was leaking rusty water everywhere. Favouring landlords far more than ...

Comment on agent fees
Fees are excessive, deposits are too large, and a guarantor is often required despite excellent references and no history of defaulting on rent. I shouldn’t have to pay an extra £200 for a cat. I find this discriminatory. Most pet owners are clean and responsible, but typically tenants pay the price for the one or two bad ones. This was particularly galling considering the house was in a pretty poor state of decoration when I moved in, and yet streaky walls and ancient gloss were deemed good enough by the agent - but the slim chance of my cat causing damage to the house warranted a separate agreement document all of its own.
