The worst renting experience I've had in London in 10 years. Homefinders have no regard for their tenants safety & wellbeing. They provide no service, but charge huge fees for moving in & out of a property. There's no way I would recommend this ...

Comment on agent fees
Fees are way too high, they charge you exorbitant fees for basically nothing, such as crossing the name out of the contract to replace with another name.

I am sorry that you feel that we have not acted professionally. But some of the information you supplied is wrong. I did check the holding depsoit agreement, the only thing you wanted was a dbl bed and sofa, no decoaration was requested when we took HD, but more importantly when I checked all the worksheets and inspection reports there was no mention of decoration. The only worksheets i can see ar on 28/6 bell and light not working, 25/11 heating not working and on inspection dated 24/2/17 boile ...

Comment on agent fees
Charlie\'s fees were very reasonable and a lot cheaper than many agents I dealt with. He was also very transparent about what needed to be paid, when and what for. Fabulous service for the fees paid. Swanky \'Foxton\' types should learn from this guy!!!! He blows them out of the water.

Please ensure that you NEVER leave potential tenants unsupervised in anyone\'s home. I\'ve never dealt with a company more unprofessional than Homefinders.
