I've been letting my flat through Lauristons for about 15 years and have been generally satisfied with the service but in recent months they have been absolutely amazing. We've had a really nasty experience with a trouble-making, rude and unreasonable tenant and Alexandra managed it brilliantly. ...

Bad. I would rather donate all the money I paid them to charity and not to them. They didn't do their jobs and just keep lying I have spent hundreds of hours to ask them to remove landlord's personal stuff and dangerous furniture that could severely harm my 1 year old baby.

Review about Lauristons lettings team. While the reviews for the sales team have been very positive overall, the same cannot be said for their lettings team. Incompetence, laziness, lack of transparency, insincerity and, at times, plain rudeness, are the main things that spring to mind. ...

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with our service. I apologise if regular maintenance and more urgent property defects were not rectified in line with your expectations. The property management team should respond and rectify these types of issues promptly, however in some instances they may be waiting on the landlords confirmation that they are in agreement with the works and costs involved. In regards to deductions and release of the deposit this can be a difficult process involving ...

I have to say that a response was not needed nor was it expected. However this response is laughable and shows a true lack of professionalism. Not only does this response insinuate that my review is not factual, it also does not offer any form of compassion or understanding. The reason Mr Budd why I did not bring this up on the telephone is that I did not wish to listen to you tell me what to do any further and arguing with you would of only prolonged the conversation. It was not until my ne ...

Thank you for a review, I encourage you to get in touch with me directly on alex.vinter@lauristons.com so I can address your concerns directly. A few points on the above, if the landlady has choosen to not carry out an inventory then it would be harsh to claim Lauristons to be at fault as a result. We do safety checks and ask security questions when giving out keys, so you may not be aware that these were asked in some ways, but I agree requesting an ID at all times would be preferable where ...
