I would just like to thank the team at Whirlybird. They were brilliantly efficient, very helpful, they communicated very effectively and they assisted me every step along the way. Even when there was a slight hiccup with the landlady, they dived straight in and quickly resolved the problem. And that's the kind of service I wish every estate agent could provide. I hope they maintain their very high levels of service and continue to lead the way in the industry. Chapeau!...

This property and tenant does not ring any bells and it seems very strange that the person has not identified themselves! The is always a reason why certain costs are applied to a tenant(s). If a property has not been left how is should be according to the contract I don't see why the landlord should pick up the cost. If the person was professional enough to leave their name and property address I could comment on the matter is a more comprehensive manner and address any concerns. As such, th ...

Chris and the team were extremely accommodating and efficient; we were able to move into the property within a few weeks of initial viewing, and they explained the different rental payment options very clearly. It was important to us that once we had found the right property we could move in as quickly as possible, and Chris ensured this was the case. A very friendly and painless experience, and we would highly recommend this agent....

I am tenant. The tenancy charges are very expensive. PLease get all the charges written before hand, before signing the contract, otherwise you will get caught into lot of hidden charges. Try to avoid this agency at any cost if possible . The tenancy admin and other charges will easily mount to £1000 if you are not careful for a 2 bed. Try to get all kind of charges in written before signing. Sorry I am stressing a lot here because I have been cheated as with lot of hidden charges....

The tenant's name is not linked to this company. I've never heard of anybody call Kendrick? That aside, we always advise of any costs prior to a move in so tenants need to calculate and evaluate their budget prior to a move in. Furthermore, agents charges will differ all over the UK so this individual is probably not comparing like with like. It sounds like the tenant is saying if you are more expensive than another firm that they have previously used you are subsequently a bad organisation? Tha ...

My letting process with Whirlybird went very smoothly, Chris was mindful of type of tenant i needed, price etc. They did a great job of promoting my property and got tenants in within 5 weeks. Chris and Christine are a great team, answering queries quickly, keeping me in the loop all along and ensuring that the check-in was done smoothly and efficiently. Will certainly use them again!...

Dreadful service Despite stating in my contract that the tenants deposit would be 'immediately paid into a deposit protection ' scheme ( it is a legal requirement for this to be done within 30 days) whirlybird did not pay the deposit into a scheme for almost 6 months . Leaving me with a potential financial liability of three times the deposit for the next six years . Their maintenance fees are extremely high almost double the amount I paid to fix a problem myself using local workmen his resp...

If I could give a zero star review I would. This company, in my view, is crooked in the highest order. Failed to bank my deposit for 6 months (I don't think they'd have done it at all if the landlady hadn't threatened to sack them for poor management). This BROKE THE LAW but his response is 'In reality the deposit was never in danger, and it's protected now so there's no case to answer'. Ummmm....wow! I have never had to deal with a more arrogant man, who is intent on treating his paying cus...

Scandalous. £120 'rush fee' to get you in a property within 2 weeks. £165+VAT to make one amend to the contract. Maintenance quotes that are nearly double the market rate. My landlady and I now work directly to do any maintenance as his service has been so bad and a rip off. We have compared quotes and had work done for nearly half the price. And yet she's still paying him £200 a month when she's effectively managing it herself now.

Thank you for your comments. I will address any issues mentioned in the order as they covered in the tenant's comment. We are obviously not a "crooked" company in the slightest as we have won over 20 Awards for customer since 2014. We are also a member of the Property Ombudsman and they don't have any "crooked" agents within their scheme. The deposit was placed into the DPS scheme even though it did not need to be because it was a company let. The tenant lacked any knowl ...

Properties are taken on a first come first served basis and they obviously have to be suitable tenants that would pass the reference process, have the "Right to Rent in the UK", be the sort of tenants that the Landlord would be happy with and have no pets and do not smoke. Just because somebody wants a property it does not mean they meet the above criteria and as such we have to make a decision who is most suitable for the owner. As such, tenants came along far more in line with what t ...

I have been dealing with Chris and Christine in regards to moving into the Marlow area. Both have been easy to talk with and were able to answer questions in a timely manner. My experience with this estate agent is not yet over and move in on the 28th, and I am sure it will all be fine picking the keys up, but I have been requested to write a review by the finance director before my experience of moving is over... Seems a little odd to me. I would rated my experience a 5, but for this odd requ...
