Foxtons - Canary Wharf

20 Canada Square

I worked most closely with Giles Sparkes (sale valuation) and Billy Brooks (sale negotiator) regarding the sale of our flat near Canary Wharf. Both are very nice persons and experts in their job. Billy managed to find a good client to make an attractive (= high) offer to buy our flat after a short time of viewing. In short Foxtons managed to sell our old home in order for us to buy and move into a bigger house in 4.5 months, which is a very short period of time in the current market condition in 2018 (i.e. before UK leaves the EU in March 2019). Our experience showed Foxtons at their very best. Giles, Billy and other members in Canary Wharf took many people to view our flat, e.g. there were 10 views in the first week versus 5 views in 2 months with another smaller estate agent we used prior to Foxtons. When it came to the final few weeks before completion and it was very tense because we needed to keep our buyer and made sure that person was happy, Giles helped Billy to work with all solicitors (my buyer, my vendor, and ours) and all estate agents in the chain to get things done quickly, i.e. they almost did the job of the other estate agent in the chain. Once in a while, I also talked with the manager (Mr. Thomas Holmes) of Giles and Billy, and it appeared that the whole team was very aware of our flat and its current situation. This is the main difference between Foxtons and our previously used estate agents who usually did not have the capital and human resource to rigorously and intensively get the job done quickly. There were ups and several downs along the way, because there were in total 3 buyers who expressed interest, put down (and some withdrew) offer, but Foxtons (especially ones at Canary Wharf Office) is worth every penny of their fee.

Tried to buy a property through them and the result was very disappointing which resulted in 1500 GBP loss for us. They promised too many things to the vendor which they could not achieve in terms of searching another property for him and finally he pulled out when our solicitor prepared already the exchange. Also they lied about the service charge amount, the flat was advertised with 2500 GBP service charge but when we got the docs from the solicitor it was 5200 GBP. Besides the fact that the agent was constantly late.

A fantastic experience from start to finish. We are fairly new to buying and it was our first purchase in London. Myself and my partner were shown around by Lewis, a great guy with good knowledge and professionalism of the property and of the current market in and around the area. We also dealt with Leigh who oversaw the purchase, again very professional and worked hard for us at crucial times during the process. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to them both and the others within KFH who have made us very happy in our new home. Tom and Kat

It's difficult to articulate how terrible KFH are. I'd say that their service was poor, but that would suggest that they were merely incompetent, rather than actively dishonest. They'll encourage you to rent a supposedly furnished place, saying either that it'll have at least a wardrobe and some drawers by the time you move in, leaving you to discover that it won't, once you've put down the deposit, or that all the furniture in the flat is included, even though the majority of it belongs to the current tenants. They're happy to show people round without notifying you and to lie about this subsequently. Only one agent, who presumably wasn't slippery enough, faced any sort of penalty for this. They'll misrepresent contract negotiations to your landlord, presumably to gain more through new tenant fees, and become almost aggressive when you suggest that this isn't acceptable (on being asked why he'd misrepresented our requests and told our landlord that we would definitely break the contract before the end of the tenancy, Will declared that it 'wasn't done through spite or malice', which seemed rather odd). Dealing with estate agents is obviously not something anyone wants to do, but, from a tenant's perspective, both having rented through them and observed their untruth-riddled viewings to prospective tenants, I suggest you do all you can to avoid KFH. A look at the positive reviews on here reveals interesting similarities (dates, details), which would make sense if the service was consistently decent, but it's worth considering that this is a company that employs people that thinks lying about making telephone calls ("oh, er, you must just not have got the voicemail message...I don't know where it can have gone") and not checking appointment times with tenants is acceptable...

Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward - Surrey Quays

Surrey Quays Shopping Centre,

Super easy process with KFH made much easier by Seamus who was always on hand to answer questions. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to rent in the area!

Jessica Shutt-Vine

Ridiculous they ask for a 1-day charge of rent just out of a wording game! We confirmed the end of lease date the same as the date we pay the rent each month. But no one ever told us before confirmation that the day is actually counted but not the night before. Why on earth would we pay for the one additional day given that we actually move out two days earlier to that? It was out of goodwill that we end the lease by the end of month sharp... then on contrary heard from them such an unfair and unnecessary treatment. It is really a frustrating and disappointing process negotiating back and forth. Such an unnecessary waste of time.

Alex was outstanding during our property search. He was professional, organised and supportive during what was a very long and stressful process. We dealt with a number of other estate agents along the way and Alex was by far the best. He was extremely knowledgeable about every property he showed us and went out of his way to accommodate some very unsociable viewing times!

Meghan Smith

Literally the worst service I have ever experienced. Twice I had my viewings (an hour away from my actual house) cancelled half an hour before they were due to happen with no apology. I will not be viewing properties with this estate agent again.

GetAgent makes finding an estate agent easier.

Very helpful in arranging for 3 agents to come around and put their pitch for marketing our property. Having them as an intermediary made the process...

Maria-Luisa Meredith

A very good comparison website

A very good comparison website for checking local estate agencies. We used it to check who have sold the most in our area and the results were very useful to us.

Easy to use.

Very quick service, within an hour I had my valuation set up with 2 different companies. Saves time as well as you don't need to trawl the internet.

Mrs susan fletcher

It really helped my decision making

There are so many estate agents to choose from but they provided details with the numbers of houses each had sold in my area and which had achieved the asking price which I found most helpful

Mrs Heather Marshall

Choose the right agent for your house.

An amazingly easy way to choose your estate agent with total confidence. I did and among the many found the right one for my house. Speedy, responsive, considerate and effective. Thank you.

Good easy to understand info. They even got the agents to contact me, so I didn't need to chase them.
