Tom Alison helped my husband and myself find an apartment for our move to London from the USA. He went beyond just showing us properties that merely corresponded to mechanical search criteria; instead, he showed initiative by showing us a property which would be perfect for us by helping lead mutually beneficial negotiations between us and the landlord. The result was a win for everyone, and we are very happy with the beautiful apartment that corresponds to all we wanted and more.
The sales person was nice and helpful. However, he was not really knowledgeable about the flat's conditions (or he was not willing to share all information). The negotiator manager has been unprofessional.
The landlord has breached the contract's T&C. Foxtons Canary Wharf team were aware of the issue before the start of the tenancy but they have failed to convince their partner (landlord) to abide by the legal agreement as per the contract. Instead, they told me to accept the fact that the T&C will not be honored. I paid deposit and first month for the flat almost two months before the start of the tenancy date. So they really wasted my time.
The flat has not been professionally cleaned (the inventory report clearly confirms my claim), and the condition to provide a new wardrobe as per the contract has not been honored. In the end, the £420 admin fee are too high and not reflected in the service they offer. They advertise the flat for a higher price than similar/better properties offered by other agencies. they kept mentioning that this landlord is a premier landlord. The furniture looks ok, as long as you dont touch it, however it is unstable and unsafe. I was not informed about this at all.
Great experience selling our house - Petty's was very professional throughout and guided us through the process and explained all aspects thoroughly to help us achieve a good price. Would recommend highly.
After showing interest in an apartment in Snaresbrook and arranging a viewing by phone, I received an email confirming the address and time for the viewing. As it turned out, I was given the wrong postcode and therefore arrived at the wrong address, a 20 minute walk away from where the property was actually located. I received a call from Du Preez Botha who asked me where I was and, after explaining to him that he had indeed given me the wrong postcode he said "well I had the same postcode as you and have never been here before myself and I've managed to find it". Although I should have checked the name of the road itself as well as the postcode, I did only use the postcode as I was using my google maps app. Estate agents are by nature rather arrogant people who know the rental market well, they have a lot of interest in each property. Having said this, if a mistake is made on one's part, one should accept this, not blame the client. He did apologise, although this didn't feel too sincere. I also work in a very busy office where I am responsible for providing addresses to clients. So a word of advice from me would be to: A. double check both the number / name and street name and B. make sure the postcode provided to a potential client matches the address. In this way the time wasted for both parties will be avoided.
Review of BOTH the O2 and Arena -
The O2 itself is massive, with a really impressive selection of shops and restaurants. This was my first time visiting. You can definitely tell it's kept clean and security is tight, making the visit easy to enjoy.
Now for the O2 Arena -
Wow. Wow. Wow! I saw my first ever concert here at the weekend by Tame Impala so I can't compare to anything else. But it was astounding. Quick to get in, good selection of snacks (to buy) once inside. I was in block 102. The seats were actually surprisingly really comfortable, though I didn't sit for long. The view was also brilliant. But I think it was the sound and light show that the O2 boasts which made for an absolutely unforgettable experience. I will definitely be going back here again, and I recommend you see for yourself too! Awesome awesome experience!
I recently attended the Bryan Adams concert at the O2. The public transport to and from the venue could not be faulted and was simple, even after the concert ended when everyone was leaving. However my experience at the concert was one I had never come across before. Being a regular attendee of Bryan's concerts I was expecting a great time. However, when my friend and I stood up to dance we were asked to sit down by one of the staff!! We refused. After all, who goes to a concert and sits down?!
Apparently the problem was that we might fall and "the only way is down". Our seats were up in the gods and to be honest we could only make Bryan and his band out from the top of their heads. The only large screen was also directly behind the stage, so we couldn't see much of that from our side facing seats either.
I pointed out to the steward that we were not teenagers and could look after ourselves. Also that I was not advised either when I purchased the tickets or when I received them that dancing was banned.
All in all our experience of the venue was very poor. We will not be returning! Bryan and his band were of course top notch.
Pablo was great at keeping us up to date with the latest listings and helping us find our dream home!! Thank you so much! X
We had an excellent experience with DA. We came from the US and were able to find a perfect flat for us within about a week and moved in soon after. Jordan was a huge help and went out of his way to help us, including giving us tips for what to do on the weekend in our new neighborhood. Once we moved to the administrative letting process, Harriet was incredibly clear and helpful through every step of the process, despite our somewhat complicated financial/visa situation. I would and probably will recommend DA to my friends and colleagues in the future!
