Comment on agent fees
I was in fixed term contract of 12 months but I needed to move out of the property earlier so William H Brown found the new tenant and I stayed in the property till the new tenant moved in. In this process I vacated the property after 10 and half months stay but I had to pay full reletting fee to the agent due to break in the fixed term contract. I felt that paying full reletting fee by me was incorrect as reletting fee should have been proportionated between tenant and owner depending upon the length of the stay as Owner have not lost a rent for a single day. Even I have offered to pay 50% reletting fee but agent did not accept my request to look into this matter. If they would have not found the tenant then I would have vacated the property just after 1 and half more month and owner would have to pay the full reletting fee as well as there would have been a possibility that new tenant would have not moved in so I felt that an undue advantage was taken of the situation. I can't comment about the letting fee paid by me at the beginning of the tenancy whether it was good or bad as I have not compared it with any other agent's fee but I always feel that the letting fee is high.

Both Lauren and Marianne are a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and helpful any time I've spoken with them both. Lauren took over from James who was also pretty good, but taking over is never easy and she managed to do it seamlessly and ...

I got more than my asking price, so the fee was worth while.

May I politely inform yourself that as an estate agent and a property professional, we work on behalf of our vendors and not our purchasers. In a commission based industry it is in our interest to try and secure a potential purchaser on the properties that we offer for sale. However, I emphasise again we work for our vendors and take their instruction upon any offer made, if you are going submit an offer £60,000 below a vendors asking price, a vendor may be insulted. If the vendor had any int ...

Absolutely appalling service. At first seemed really efficient in making sure that I handed over my money. After that customer care and service plummeted. While trying to get a mortgage lender I was originally told that for the amount I needed it would be no ...

To improve they need to be better with communication of whats going on as well as I have a wider knowledge of what lenders need and how to best inform a first buyer of the process.

Thank you for your feedback. We do of course apologise if you feel you did not receive the service you expected. I would firstly like to clarify that no payment was taken from yourself until the agreement in principle had been accepted. Initially income declared to us by yourself was incorrect as you were un aware of you basic salary and until payslips were evidenced we were not able to give you an accurate borrowing potential. We soon had this amended, processed an agreement in princip ...

I would rate this agency worse than 'terrible', but unfortunately this was the lowest rating supplied. Do not use this letting agency, their professionalism and customer care is appalling. They didn't provide a copy of the tenancy agreement and the property that my parents moved ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They should have: - provided a copy of the contract as soon as it was signed. - ensured that the property they agreed to rent out was in an acceptable condition. - had a representative from the Lettings side of the office available who could deal with problems. - kept the tenants informed of events and provided an update of what was happening. - returned phone calls when they said they would. - had a \'plan B\' option for when they couldn\'t contact the landlord - they said they couldn\'t arrange for cleaners to clean the property because they had to have permission from the landlord first, but what is the contingency plan if they can\'t contact the landlord? There must be a second option otherwise my parents are sitting in a dirty, filthy house.

The amount paid was way over the top for the condition of the property when my parents first moved in. The customer service provided by the agency was terrible - if I was that bad at my job, I would get sacked.
