I rent out a property through Richard James Lettings, and in all my dealings with them have found them to be professional, but friendly, a balance not often found in large organisations. Their communication is excellent, keeping me up to date with all aspects of the letting process and potential new tenants. All the administration is undertaken very quickly, and on the couple of occasions where there has been a maintenance issue with the property (e.g. when the central heating timing broke) it...

Had arranged a viewing, was there before the appointment. Agent had not turned up. phoned to enquire, instead of apologising for not keeping the appointment, was rude. fortunately not desperate to buy. Will buy from elsewhere.. My money would be appreciated by other decent agency. Always remember WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND Do not assume, customers do not have a choice or have to use your services. LOST A CASH BUYER....

would not sale or purchase from you because you do not understand the meaning of customer service. you should be ashamed to be called a business. your type of concerns encourage customers to deal with foreign business or run by people from overseas.

Completely unprofessional staff. No communication/wrong communication through out the letting process. Was talked in a very aggressive and unruly manner by the one of the staff in the Old town office(for being a few minutes late to the appointment) . This was one of the mistakes and I will not detail the entire wrong doing on their part in this review. None of the higher ups wanted to even consider the matter. They simply brushed it off. No process what so ever and one of the worst estate agen...

We did propose some deductions from the deposit in relation to cleaning and repairs. The cleaning charges were initially agreed but the repair was not. As all our deposits are retained within a government recognised scheme the tenant has the opportunity to dispute any deductions. Of the £110 disputed £75 was awarded to the landlord and £35 back to the tenant. Surely this was a fair and reasonable way to resolve this matter, and we as an agent did not benefit in any way. ...

Richard James win outright the price for the most incompetent, nasty bunch of estate agents I have ever dealt with. Our experience with their rude letting staff was a nightmare from the day we moved into the property they supposedly managed. They were of course nice and smarmy at the viewing and very keen to take my credit card number on the spot to pay their fee. Once we moved it was a different story. We discovered on day 1 (in mid july!) the fridge did not work. The washing machine was also...

Any deductions proposed from a deposit can be disputed by the tenant via the Tenancy Dispute Service (TDS).Therefore, before we propose any deductions we have to have evidence to support these in case we go to dispute. However, in this case the tenant chose not to dispute the £82.50 plus vat requested for cleaning but clearly remained unhappy, when we believe we acted very fairly throughout the process. ...

Every other estate agent we have called have been brilliant at securing us viewings however this particular estate agents never know availability on their properties nor do they pass on offers made to sellers.... We upped an offer to over 5000 and was told seller said no and was going with the lower offer hmmmmm I doubt that very much!! We don't use them anymore and are taking our money elsewhere....

Flow of information non existent, fundamental lack of knowledge from staff, very pushy attitude, agent mixed up order of offers from different parties resulting in the last party to offer securing property....

Bought a property through this agent last year. Poor customer service. No contact throughout the sales process once offer had been accepted. Would have been nice to have a call after completion to ask how things were going but that was wishful thinking. Will not use them again either to sell or buy....
