Difficult Experience with Lauristons.
While I had a variety of viewings through them and I was able to successfully find a place with them, I had a tremendous amount of difficulty with commuting in and out of town on multiple occasions to produce the paperwork and checks required for them and found them very unaccommodating to this.
I received multiple emails (at least three to five) and phone calls per day for outstanding items while at work, and tried my best to answer all questions and provide paperwork in time. But oddly enough, as soon as the contract was signed, the paperwork was completed, and I got the keys to enter the flat, I noticed a few items that were promised to me were still outstanding.
I contacted them via e-mail to inquire (as we have been in touch via e-mail throughout the entire process), and I did not receive a response back. A couple of weeks later, I received a 'welcome pack' where I was then instructed that all questions and issues were now to be addressed to the landlord directly.
Not really sure what to say about this or if anything further should be done. Just relieved that I have finally moved in altogether.
I don't advise using these estate agents if you are coming in from out of London.

Thank you Lauristons!
Lauristons have been so generous and easy to deal with, supporting our fundraising efforts. We are a small local charity and we find printing costs prohibitive. Lauristons now print our quarterly newsletter, in colour, over 300 copies, and turn it around in a day. It makes a massive difference to us, in terms of tangible savings and genuine local support. This is the only local business that has offered to help us in this way.

Lauren showed me flats in Balham and James in Wimbledon; both were extremely friendly and professional, able to answer any questions on the flats. I ended up making an offer elsewhere which has now fallen through so I will maybe use Lauren again as we have settled for balham but in any case, they were an excellent example of what an estate agent should be like.

Lauristons has been the most helpful agency I have dealt with in years. Definitely a strong competitor to all the other agencies across UK. Great, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Would definitely use them again!
Out of 4 estate agents that I arranged to come and value my property, Richard Savidge were by far the best.
They turned up on time, were very friendly, helpful and professional, they also recommended what I should do to get the best price for my house.
I decided on using them after careful consideration and I am so pleased I did.
My house sold within 3 weeks of being on the market for the asking price, couldn't have wished for better service.
What wonderful estate agents Richard Savidge are. We are renting out our house on Broadmeadows and use them as our lettings agents. They are fantastic, the staff are very friendly and told us exactly what to do.
They helped us to find a tenant within 24 hours and our tenants were in the house within 7 days.
Great company with fantastic staff. I would definitely use them again and certainly recommend them to all my family and friends.
So many hidden charges...they've even charged £30 to do the inspection for moving out. Don't sort out any repairs yet expect you to have pay to have carpets professionally cleaned. Didn't sort our drug users in flats below. DO NOT USE.
Absolutely disgusting treatment. I had 2 viewings today do took unpaid day off work to attend. They did not turn up and when I rang them they said both were cancelled. No one thought to inform me at all. Totally unprofessional.
