Bad maintenance, delapidated property, and dodgy deposit decutions. Poor relations and communication between this Agency and the landlord meant maintenance of the property was thrawt with delays to even the most essential fixes such as leaks and electrical faults. Would always get confused as to which maintenance teams were going to be sent (agents or landlords), they mostly came without an idea of when they'd visit, most of the time without keys so you'd have to be in which can be a huge incon...

Student let so no fees were awarded, however the deposit deductions are a regualr habit of theirs, so definitely take photos and your own inventory towards the state of the property on move out.

Emailed to Amelia Harris when we arrived back in Northamptonshire Dear Amelia, I am writing to thank you for all the time you gave Luke Chester with his flat hunting yesterday. You went the 'extra mile' and worked hard in trying to find him the best flat and we are very grateful. I am only sorry that he decided on a flat from another company. In 6 -12 months he is hoping to buy a flat and hopefully we will be able to use your company again, With kind regards and thank you, Sue Chester I would ...

If I could give them zero stars I would. They offered to show me three properties, one of which (after getting the wrong road and looking around for five minutes for a house that wasn't there) they had the wrong key for the property. The next property was nothing like the photos, and so we visited the third. Stupidly I agreed to a tenancy, only to be told that their fee was £375 per person!! Almost twice the cost of other places. They told me that this was because it included any renewal f...

Terrible. £375 is a joke. Not even told until I was there to sign the contract

Hi Mathew, I would like to highlight a couple of points. Our fees are clearly displayed on our Rightmove Site and are also in our office. Kings Estates do not charge for renewal fees or check out fees. Some landlords who manage their own properties do charge to renew to cover the cost of re-registering the deposit. This is not a charge from Kings Estates. Our fees are very competitive and if you shopped around you would find this is the case. I find it very rude and disrespectful of ...

Excellent service always provided by KIngs Estate for the last 3 years I have been in touch with them. Recently Ryan dealt with the letting, and he was brilliant, very communicative at all times, and Kings Estate always choose very good tenants for its customers. I know others who have been very happy with the service provided by them. I will always go to them. In comparison with some others, they have always been very good and happy to help....

This company is awful and likes to take advantage of potential clients. Their agents are extremely unprofessional and tell you what you want to hear in order to rope you in to putting a deposit down on a property. As a student, the administration fees were extortionate and we were expected to pay the deposit and the first months rent before moving in, which is rare with student housing. They also lied to us about the pricing until we agreed to rent the property, with the deposit actually being d...

Hi Tyreece, Firstly I would like you to explain how Kings Estates had taken advantage of you as a client. At no point did any transaction take place nor any Terms/Contract signed. You were never lied to about the price of the property. Although my colleague was unaware this particular landlord took 6 weeks deposit you were told before any agreement could be made. When it became clear you did not wish to pay a deposit of this amount we tried to contact the landlord to negotiate a lower deposit o ...
