Latest Reviews for Abbotts Countrywide - Bury St Edmunds

Recently tried to purchase a house via Abbotts Bury St Edmunds.
Found their staff unprofessional, inefficient,unhelpful and rude.

GetAgent Review - this review has passed our basic verification procedure.

I spoke to a letting agent at Abbott’s this morning regarding making an appointment to view a property managed by her. I had been waiting over two weeks to hear from her regarding this.

She had made no effort with in this time frame to keep me updated about the progress of this appointment.

When I enquired as to firstly why I had received no response in that time and why it was taking so long to make a simple appointment she was very rude, defensive and implied that I was being unreasonable and then actually hung up the phone.

In summary My experience of this letting agent is that they are highly inefficient with appalling customer service and communication skills. I was made to feel that I had done something wrong by enquiring about an appointment that I had asked to be made over two weeks ago.

I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect some sort of communication in that time even if it was not possible to actually pin point a date to view. They had access to my landline, mobile and email.

I would not recommend them to anyone.

This should not be confused with the sales team who were polite and as helpful as possible today.

An amazing service received from Abbotts at Bury St Edmunds! Specially from Jade! Couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Professional, good communication, advice and effort in finding us a perfect rental property. Lovely personality and a big smile from Jade was a massive bonus! Thank you!

Abbott’s countrywide Bury St Edmunds maintenance team never phone back when you’re told they will. Don’t reply to emails. Have left me in the dark regarding the repayment of my deposit for over 40 days with no sign as to whether there are any deductions. Absolutely useless.
I’d never rent through them again nor recommend anyone doing so.
During my tenancy it took over 3 months to send someone to check on a leak.
Took 36 days to repay my overpaid rent.
I don’t have a good word to say.
DONT RISK IT. There are much better estate agents!

Having been very disappointed with an online estate agent and their lack of any input in selling our property I was approached by Abbott's for them to take on the sale after inquiring about a property they were selling. Had offers after 2 weeks. We used their in-house mortgage adviser who also dealt with all of the other tedious goings-on with house sales. Great communication with the Bury St. Edmund's team. couldn't fault them and would highly recommend them.

Avoid this agent, and especially the manager, if you want an honest, open, fully communicating service, fully respecting you as fee paying client.

I engaged Abbott's Rayleigh to sell my mother's retirement apartment. They recommended I accept a lower offer, by £2,000, than the best offer on the basis the lower was only 3 parties and the higher was 5 parties, with the bottom party not using an agent, so best avoided. I therefore expected a straightforward process.

There was a five week delay on my part awaiting probate after my mother died two months into the process, but as soon as I obtained probate within five weeks, I expected a quick completion as the two other parties had had that time to finalise all legal bits during three months.

Another two months later, still no exchange of contracts, despite many, many telephone calls to the manager. Then another colleague in the office revealed there was in fact six parties in the chain and another had also had to get probate.

Over five months, at no time did the manager reveal the original chain had collapsed and I was now in a much more complex chain. Worse, I was told the colleague should not have revealed to me the change of chain. Their policy would seem to be to keep their fee-paying client in the dark.

Party number 3 in the chain issued three deadlines on exchange, then pulled out, so the apartment had to return to market. If I had been advised months earlier of the more complex chain I could have returned to market earlier. The delay costs me £200 monthly in management fees on an empty apartment.

I cancelled my contract with Abbotts and write twice to the manager, simply asking why I had not been informed of the collapse of the original chain. The manager is so arrogant he has ignored both letters. I will now complain to head office.

Note that Abbotts is not a member of the National Association of Estate Agents with its professional standards.

No wonder that the group is in such a dire iinancial situation and has had to be rescued but still faces collapse.

The manager at Abbotts Rayleigh is the worse kind of shifty estate agent.

We found all the staff at Abbotts to be extremely professional and proactive. We have no hesitation in recommending their services.

We had a terrible experience with Abbotts as tenants. If you are looking to rent then I urge you to look elsewhere! The property we were renting from them in Barnby (Beccles) went up for sale whilst we were renting and they told us we had 2 months to vacate which was fine. Except that wasn't the case when it came to the final days of that two month period - Our home was packed up, our daughter had changed primary school and we then had to give a months notice in writing before being able to finally move on! They told us we have two months to vacate over the phone and we were not aware at the time that this should have been given in writing until we did further research. I believe, in retrospect that this was a tactic used to take as much money from us as possible and for no good reason. We were great tenants who always paid the rent on time and kept the dated property clean and tidy, inside and out. It was our home and we were very happy there. To add insult to injury they attempted to keep our entire deposit (£1500) for decorative purposes (even though the property was up for sale and not in great shape when our tenancy began, we actually improved the property immensely) and they wouldn't allow us the contact telephone number/email/address of our landlord! We had to get legal advice from Shelter and they made a stressful time for me and my family, so much worse! The inventory from the beginning of our tenancy was never given to us and had conveniently gone astray when we asked for a copy. Luckily we found the landlords address in our tenancy agreement documents and we wrote a letter to him directly (without any cooperation from Connor, our point of contact at Abbotts). The landlord was, thankfully, a really nice chap and was completely unaware of their dealings with the deposit!!! We got our deposit back after communicating with the landlord directly. Leads me to believe they were trying to keep the money for themselves personally...they are a disgrace and I would seriously look elsewhere if you are considering renting, buying or selling with Abbott's.

Excellent, Spencer, Wendy and the the team made the difficult task of selling my deceased father’s property as easy it could be, keeping me informed at all times of every detail of viewings and the sale, and liaising with solicitors, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate in recommending this office.
