When buying a flat as a first time buyer I was dealing with Nick Webb from Waldens. They were absolutely faultless throughout the whole process. There were some hiccups regarding solicitors and Nick went over and above numerous times to help myself and seller close the deal. Would highly recommend

Horrified and Bemused!
A Landlord that feels he can just turn up at the property and even let himself in at any time he chooses, and ups the rent constantly (at one point with a £100 Jump!) and yet fails to repair much needed repairs in a structurally unsound property.
Waldens Estate Agents (upon the extortionate rent increase) told the tenant (a single mother in full time education who was at the time recovering from a life threatening illness that if she struggled to afford the increase then she should 'get out'
Overly frequent house checks were carried out by Waldens.
Upon moving out, the then Pregnant Tenant (who is extremely House Proud) was told that she must send an email accepting ANY and ALL charges regarding the house (and any repair work that may be necessary) before the end of tenancy checks even took place!
Waldens then created an obscure list of repairs that the Tenant would have to pay for, despite such repairs having been required prior to the tenant moving into the property (details that were actually ON THE ORIGINAL INVENTORY!!)
Waldens then claimed that all floors and carpets needed a 'Deep Clean' despite the carpets being spotless. These carpets that we later discovered were not cleaned at all, but replaced!!! The tenant also had photos of the carpets in question showing them to be spotless!
Grainy photos impossible to make out were sent by Waldens as so called evidence to testify to the legitimacy of the bogus claims of Waldens Agent 'Shelly'!
Along with a multitude of ridiculous claims made by Waldens in way of keeping as much of the bond as they could, the Estate Agent bullied and Pushed the heavily pregnant ex tenant almost to breaking point!
I saw the house personally as I myself worked with the removals man. The house was in excellent condition and would not have needed any type of deep clean whatsoever. Witnesses to this include myself, a removals man, and a Barrister no less.
This Estate Agency, or at least on of their members, are corrupt, greedy, and have absolutely no problem bullying and causing great and unnecessary stress to a pregnant woman for the sake of lining their own pockets.
Sickening and Appalling!
