I would definitely recommend Alan de Maids. Recently I moved into my apartment and my experience was amazing! As it was my first time renting by myself I had a lot of questions but both David and Austin were always there for me, explaining the procedure and giving me the guidance and support I needed. Thank you ever so much and keep up with your amazing work!

David has been extremely helpful and has made the whole move go smoothly. I'm very pleased with the service Alan De Maid has given us.

Brilliant service received. I would highly recommend Alan de Maid Petts Wood. David, Austin & Debbie, really helped me find my new home. They made moving seem simple and easy, I was treated as a person, not just another client. I have now moved in and feel confident that they are still there should i need them. I was nervous about moving again, as the last move was hard work, but they made moving seem simple and easy..
Multiple times people have commented on the holding deposit and the owner always states that it's deducted from the total on commencement of the tenancy. This simply isn't true, despite it being worded that way in documents I have from Dixons.
To quote one of their employees in an email: "The fees on the good faith are the same as I explained on the viewing, so the initial £250 is all part of your applications fees and doesn’t come off the end payment.
It is taken as a separate payment to secure the property and start the referencing process"
This wasn't explained at the viewing, in fact we were told there wasn't a holding deposit, simply an application form to be completed that would be provided to the landlord for him to choose from prospective tenants.
I'd steer clear and find a more reasonable agent.
Helpful and friendly staff, ready to give me a call to keep me always updated. The whole process has been easy and they have been available to meet my needs. Anyway, I found the fees which we paid to rent the property (we paid £ 450) over the average and not clearly explained at the beginning of the process. This is despite we both have a permanent job (not need a guarantor), excellent references from our previous landlords and planning to rent for a long term. If you scroll down you can find another review from another customer which complained for the same issue where DIXON answers that this is because of the "Holding Payment", and it would have been used against the final invoice of rent, deposit and fees as a deduction. Unfortunately this has not happened.
Having bought, sold, and let a property with the help of Dixons now, I would not trust any other agent with the work. They are well trained, professional and "know their stuff". Most recently, I have let my property with the help of Collette and Kim, and have found them to be competent and professional throughout. Would definitely enlist their help again. Thank you.
