Walmsley Estate Agents provide the service we anticipated and expected when we put our home of 36 years on the market in early 2018. From initial contact through valuation, marketing, viewings and ultimate management of the actual sales process we were treated most efficiently and with consideration. ...

As landlords, we feel completely let down by Walmsley. Firstly, they failed to investigate what proved to be illegal subletting by the tenants (as later confirmed by many official letters found at the house addressed to people not living there). We were alerted to the ...

(1) During Inventory check-in, it's Beth who was hurrying up and loosing patience and later she left the house rudely. (2) For checkout I did requested for full checkout report but they provided just two page document ( and around 10 photos) because they do not use any independent surveyor and money goes in their pocket. (3) Here is the email which I sent to Walmsey in regard to boiler issue: Hi Sian, I am writing to inform you that my elder son has fallen ill since this morning due ...

I am incredibly unhappy with Walmsley. We were sharing a house with a mentally unstable man who started agressively shouting at 2 am. Our guess is that he was autistic. Walmsley ignored the problem and waited for us to forget about it. I had to call ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
If they had been clear that I would be staying outside of the campus (about 30 min walk from my workplace -they assured me it would be a 5 min walk) or if they had been transparent about the time I had to leave the property and not ignored me I wouldn't be so pissed. I had to pay extra not to sleep on the street or in the airport...after I had been very clear about my flight date and done everything with half a year in advance....that doesn't seem normal in an agency that "works harder for you".

What agent could do to change your mind?
Walmsley could have taken the time to discuss the issue further; we offered a 6-month upfront rental payment which was not communicated to the land-lord. For surety it is stipulated that the tenant should earn 2.5 times the amount of rent per annum, the tenant was fully covered by her own salary and on top of this her children would also sign as guarantor. Walmsley staff could process a little faster so that their tenants could know in advance whether they will be moving or not.

We would like to confirm that the above has now been satisfied and copy in below the response from the complainant. Also, we would like to correct a few points mentioned; 1. The flat was not available for 'weeks' as the client in question had not completed the refurbishment until a couple of days before the agreed move in date. 2. We could not agree to go ahead with the tenancy with a guarantor as the applicants put forward to us did not prove to be sufficient. 3. No Tenancy Agreement was sig ...

Hello, We feel it important to respond to your comments as were we disappointed to hear that your experience with us was unsatisfactory. As you know, our check out findings have been referred to the dispute service, this is a legal procedure and complies in line the tenancy deposit scheme. It is unfortunate that an agreement could not be made regarding this matter and we are currently awaiting the adjudicators final decision with the aim to satisfy both parties. Kindest regards Walmsl ...
