I rented a property through Theydons and found them a decent letting agent and a good property management company. They do not charge for contract renewals and they always responded promptly to any maintenance issues. The check-out process was smooth and painless!
Spent a year dealing with problems with the property which admittedly 50% were dealt with efficiently. Like the roaches we moved in to find. But I MUST stress to anyone. READ THE SMALL PRINT. They will sting you on checking out fees like cleaning and they don't watch their own inventory videos and will try and charge for things that previous tenants caused. Would not recommend unless the property is really worth it!
A professional service delivered by Jamie and Gary at Trading places. Very pleasant to deal with and a great support when moving into our new flat.
Jamie and Rosie at Trading Places provide an outstanding service. I've lived and rented in London for nearly 10 years and in that time I've had mixed experiences with letting agents and private landlords, but these guys really stand out from the rest for me.
I had difficulties leaving a previous tenancy which almost derailed our new deal and Jamie acted as go between with our now landlord and kept everything on track and all parties happy quite brilliantly.
These guys go the extra mile, are easy to talk to, always are on top of communication with clear and detail info and are very clued up and professional, a direct contrast to almost every other agent or landlord I've ever dealt with! As a result my partner and I are now in a brilliant little flat in Wanstead and could not be happier. Highly recommend.
Our first purchase with Haart Leytonstone fell through due to a dreadful survey but David was quick to assist us find another property and was helpful throughout.
Working with the Leytonstone Haart team was a pleasure. I would definitely chose to work with them again if needed in the future. I found the team communicated well throughout the process and were professional and approachable. I have worked with other estate agents in the past, however this was by far my best experience.
I would definitely recommend Petty Son and Prestwich - they helped me let, manage and subsequently sell my flat. They are incredibly professional and a pleasure to deal with. A big thank you to the whole team!
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.
