Josh is an Excellent estate agent, efficient, acknoledgble and very friendly. He also demonstrated to be a good mediator between landlord and tenant, taking a fair stand between us, which I am sure is not easy. From my personal perspective, I believe Josh cares the most about an agreement between two parties eventually satisfying everyone, placing the right people in the right property and at fair conditions. This is precisely what an estate agent should, and should love to, do. It's nice to see...

It has been a pleasure to deal with this company and with our agent Josh. I had the immidiate feeling that I can trust this company. After speaking to our agent Josh, I knew I could count on reliability, intelligence and attention to details. From the first moment I met this agent I hoped I would have found the right property with Hotblack Desiato and with Josh. I am glad this happened. Thank you...

I thought Daniel was very good. We have dealt with quite a few agents recently. Some are on the ball like Daniel, but many are ill prepared and can't answer even the most basic questions. I particularly like Daniel's calm efficient manner. Renting or buying is a stressful process, which Daniel reduces....

We first dealt with Stuart in 2011, when we bought a flat in Camden though him and it's mostly because of his tact, diligence and good understanding of human nature that the transaction was successful. Since then he has helped when we let it through HotBlack and again recently when we needed a valuation - which he did willingly and for free. He has built up a long term relationship with us in a profession that is usually about the here and now. We highly recommend him for anyone looking for an ...

A very nervous landlord as this was my first time renting. Josh made everything really simple and was always on hand to assist with both flats.

He was on hand and responsive from our first viewing of the property right through to completing our move. He handled the agreement in a professional and transparent fashion that made our relationship with him and Hot Blacks Desiato feel secure. I would recommend him to any friends or family looking to move in or around the Camden borough. Good work mate, we appreciate the hard work done behind the sc...

This is the first time that my boyfriend and I have rented in London and we were both very worried about the process and dealing with many different estate agents. From the start everyone at the Camden office was very helpful and polite. They were very informative and got back to me with answers to any questions pretty quickly, usually within the hour. Josh was particularly helpful when it came to having a few things in the property fixed or sorted out. The garden was over grown and the one o...

I'm very impressed with Josh Fox-Cooper's professional expertise. He supervised a change of tenants with numerous tricky issues that required multiple layers of simultaneous coordinating. He kept me and the tenants informed every step of the way, and also advised the best way forward. He takes his job seriously, and is lovely to work with, as he's very sincere. I feel lucky that he handled my flat....

I chose Hotblack Desiato after a meeting at my home with Stuart Shiers, several months before I actually put the flat on the market. Stuart gave me some excellent advice about preparing to sell as well as some guidance about an insurance claim which I subsequently made. He was the only agent that was able to tell me that listed buildings didn't need an EPC. His valuation was fair and I felt confident that I was going to use an agent that knew my area well. The photos that Hotblack prepared f...

Josh and the entire team at Hotblack were absolutely fantastic. From the minute I walked into their branch in Camden, I was viewing the property I now live in within a couple of hours. We were fully moved in within the week. Not only are their agency fees MUCH lower than any other estate agent out there but they put in more work, more contact, better service than any other agent too. It was a pleasure to do business with Josh and he made the entire process wonderful, easy, clear and straight fo...

Overall, he have been very satisfied by how Hotblack and especially Josh has been helping us find a place to let. As international students, it was very hard at first to find an agency that would help us before the beginning of the summer in very few days. Several minutes after we stepped in the agency, Josh found the perfect place while we already spent nearly a week looking around. The viewing went well and we got all the information we needed. What we also really appreciated is that not havin...

Josh has been extremely helpful during my time as a tenant with Hot Black Desiato. He put me at ease during a normally stressful time of looking for a new rental property, made time to show me the properties around my working hours and didn't use a salesy approach to pressure me into choosing any of them. During my time as a tenant, I have received a quick response from Josh whenever I had a query and when I experienced a maintenance issue with my flat, he made sure that the correct people were ...

Comment on agent fees
The fee structure meant that you were effectively paying fees every year as if you were starting a new lease in a new property. On the other hand the check in and check out of the flat, although payed for by the tenant, is performed by an independent person. This makes the process fair and equal to both parties.

I used Josh Fox- Cooper to let a residential flat. He was a great professional at all times. He kept me in touch with the search for a tenant ,personally vetted all applicants, advised on the rental market and once a tenant was found expeditiously completed all the formalities to bring the transaction to completion. He was a real expert and I would certainly instruct him again. The same goes for Michelle Lyons who was superb and attentive in the renewal of the tenancy and just like Josh is a g...
