Laura Hatton was a delight! Helpful and efficient. 5 stars all the way. I was buying my first property which is pretty stressful and she made the whole thing a lot less painful!...

We had arrived from overseas a few days before stumbling into Hastings International office at Borough High Street. It was the end of a long cold wet day and we were exhausted. Megan Cutforth sat us down, explained how the leasing system worked and commenced organising our apartment. Our application was probably more complicated than normal as we had no address, no bank account and no credit rating, but Megan pursued these essentials so that we were able to move in just four days after first...

found a property to purchase through Hastings and from viewing to completion the agent keep me fully updated throughout and helped me with any questions I had as I was a first time buyer. there were some delays although not the agents fault but to do with property and the seller themselves but again no one individually was at fault and Ayden kept pushing and pushing to get it the process finished for me quickly. even the solicitor he recommended to me was fantastic and I will be using her again....

Megan was very helpful and punctual on my initial viewing, she offered other properties that were in my price range for me to consider. I was kept updated throughout the whole process and my move from outside of London went very smoothly. A big thank you to Rytis who helped keep me updated on my referencing when Megan was not available....

I received an exceptional service from Rytis. Dealing with him has definitely been my most pleasant experience when renting a property especially when it comes to updates, super-fast responses and genuine interest of client needs! I do no like to waste my time, I don't believe anyone does so his honesty and transparency got him a quick deal and me an amazing flat which I was looking for. When you call Hastings, I would suggest you speak to Rytis - professional, polite and dedicated individual. F...

I recently bought a flat through Hastings. After very bad experiences with other agencies some of which even resorted to lies it was refreshing to be able to deal with professional people who do not treat you like an idiot. Working with Aydin was such a pleasant experience, even though we never met. He made sure the whole purchase process went smoothly, found ways to resolve issues that came up and I didn't even need to fly to London. I would do more business with Hastings and Aydin again....

From the beginning until the end, dealing with Hasting's International has been a nightmare. Particularly trying to get back my deposit back. It has been over four weeks now since I moved out of my flat and I am still waiting for my deposit to be returned. I have spoken to Mark on the phone a couple of times, the last time he literally told me...

For the service they provide, they do not deserve any fee. I have been through 3 different estate agents in the past and all of them were much more professional.

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Hastings International. I am particularly happy with one of your sales team, Aydin. He made sure I was always notified on updates regarding the property I was enquiring about and was always professional but easily approachable at the same time. The process went very smoothly and I never felt out of the loop, thank you Aydin and Hastings International for your service. I will be sure to recommend you!...

Finding the property was not hard. Hastings made sure that they were flexible with viewing hours and were quite handy. Once we put an offer in, everything just came to a halt. Amit completely failed at keeping in contact with all of us tenants. We had to chase him daily through email, phone and even text as getting in contact with him was not easy. We had to pursue him for about 10 days before we even got a draft contract sent to us, while all the time we were being pushed to send payment. All ...

They will ignore you and withhold your money with no notification or explanation. In terms of communication skills (if you're lucky to speak to them), they are typical bullies! If I wasn't a busy professional I would definately sue them as a matter of principle!...

Engage Hastings International if you want poor service and at your own risk. I am an landlord and got Mark Porter to search for an tenant for my apartment. Not only was the process slow and unprofessional, emails went unanswered and calls unreturned. The company took many things into their own hands without my consent, including furnishing the apartment and then requesting for me to make payment. Despite saying I do not want the furniture, I was told to pay a cancellation fee else my keys wou...

Hi David, I realise your review was written 2 years ago so you may not receive my post. I have had a very similar experience with Hastings and your words could've come straight out of my mouth! Interested in how this turned out? Hope they didn't get away with it!....

I had a recent experience with them which turned into a nightmare. I visited a flat on Sept 5th 2013 (i was the very first person to visit it) and made an offer at the advertised price which was accepted 2 days later (after chasing the agent to get the confirmation). I paid 2 week deposit to secure the flat and then this developed into a real farce. I tried to get in touch with them a dozen times (phone, email) and they never called me back. At some point I reached someone that said they ...

Hi! Did they do any reference checks on you? I think I might be in a similar situation as you were as they took my 2 week deposit, did the reference check, sent me the tenancy agreement to sign. When asked if I could see the tenancy agreement signed by the landlord they keep on telling me that the landlord is not contactable ( he is on holidays).what do you suggest I should do? How did u get ur deposit back at the end? I would really appreciate ur advise....

Completely predatory letting practices. When a customer enters a lettings agent and asks for a property with a clearly outlined move in date, it should be on the agent\'s discretion to specify "well, you might not get it by that date, we are still unsure as the building is not finished yet". That has been standard practice in every single London-based lettings agent I have been in over the past 4 years. We went in with a clearly specified move in date and the agent presented us with...

Had to ask them about 5 [different] times to get the right spelling of our names and correct address on required documents (as they kept getting it wrong.) For the entire duration of our tenancy they dragged their heels on getting anything fixed, generally sending their "maintenance" person round 3 times to "inspect" and conclude something needs to be fixed (though it never would be) I\'m struggling to get my deposit back (having to go to arbitration) as they initially prom...

This has developed into a farce. The agent offered to negotiate the price down a bit for me, which I would have been stupid to refuse. But, I said I\'d be happy to pay the requested rent. There were two identical flats, I preferred one of them, but said either of them would be fine. For 5 days I didn\'t hear anythign from him. When I called back, he said his colleague found someone who was willing to pay the full price, so now the flat is gone. I asked about the other flat. He offered to m...
