I first used Wenlock & Taylor in 2005 to do a survey of a flat I wanted to purchase in Kensal Rise, and Jeremy Taylor did a very professional and thorough job. A few years later, I asked Wenlock & Taylor to rent the very same flat which they did quickly and successfully. More recently I asked them to do a valuation of the flat (same one) and sell it for me; which again, they did very successfully and also got more than the asking price for it. Throughout my dealings with Wenlock & Taylor, and in particular Peter Woolner in Sales, I cannot praise their reliable, straight forward, no nonsense approach enough. I have dealt with some very unsavoury estate agents in the past and Wenlock & Taylor's client service has been exceptional and outstanding. Their original 70s decor (which is fashionable again!) tells you that they have been in business in the area for a very long time and more important, it is reflected in their excellent "traditional" values in doing sound business with all too rare, courteous good manners! With so many rogue independent estate agents and arrogant personnel in the "big" or new chains I cannot praise Wenlock & Taylor enough. Thank you for supporting me through a very difficult transition and going the extra mile (literally) to make things happen on time (Peter you know what I'm talking about!) It has been a pleasure to do business with you. Huge thanks for being magnificent from start to finish.
My family have been living in the South Hampstead area for over 60 years. Approximately 12 years ago we engaged the services of Abacus Estates to look after our various rental properties. Having dealt with James Altman and his team over the years, i cannot recommend them high enough for their commitment, service and attention to detail. Today they are managing 3 properties for us and if you are looking for a first rate service, then Abacus estates should be your absolute first point of call. Peter (property owner)
Shelley showed me a couple of properties in NW6 and it was a particularly pleasant experience. She was very attentive to my needs and was not pushy in the slightest. I ended up pursuing another property in a different location and Shelley provided advise on how I should negotiate.
This agency is a joke. We were renting a flat just for 6 months because we wanted to finish our coop with this agency asap. We tried to contact our landlord many times and it was impossible because everytime I asked about number it was different than one on tenancy agreement ( not actual ofc ) and the numbers I have been given, were wrong. Agents told us that everything is included to the rent ( electricity, water, council, etc.) Nope it wasn't. If you want to recive your deposit back ( ha! ) good luck. We've been charged: £170 for checking company, £70 for BANK TRANSFER (just to get our money back) £200 for cleaning laundry machine which was clean. And 45 for 4 lightbulbs. Deposit is not secured. When you're working or you're going out somewhere, agents showing your flat to the people without your permission. So keep valuable items hidden
Dealing with this agency was an absolute nightmare. I never met such incompetent and unprofessional people.
The service was terrible, they make you lose plenty of time. The night we had to enter the flat for the first time, they gave us the key of the wrong flat so we were stuck outside with all our luggage.
They promised us they would have found other tenants to enter the house when we would have left London and of course they didn't, so we had to pay one more month rental even though we were not living there anymore. This is completely unacceptable.
AVOID THIS AGENCY IF YOU WANT TO AVOID PROBLEMS!!!
