One of the most unprofessional companies I've ever dealt with in my life. I honestly wonder how some of the agents have jobs there as every one that we dealt with was incompetent in simple tasks to say the least. Make sure that you ...

Utterly unprofessional. Disgraceful, shameful cowboys who use a dodgy itinerary/cleaning company and try to fleece the deposit for no valid reason, only financial gain. If you have the misfortune to rent from M&C take comprehensive photos when you move in and out. ...

I have nothing but positive comments to make about Murray and Currie. When I arrived in Edinburgh it was tricky finding time to attend viewings during working hours. They were by far the most flexible agency when it came to arranging after-work viewings. They were ...

A shameless disgraceful company. Throughout the year, the agency never replied to calls after we paid the deposit. When we turned up, the flat was in a dirty state (carpet stained, floor tiles damaged, light bulbs missing), but the documents say everything is cleaned and ...

Bad, roughly £100 a month added to the rent. Hence it's "free".

What agent could do to change your mind?
They increased their percentage take without notification and they didn't manage the property as I was paying them to do - if they had been doing their job it would have been acceptable, but because they didn't it was daylight robbery.
