Do not give this agent your property to let. They are simply too inept to manage the simplest of tasks let alone be trusted with the day-to-day management your property. They failed to arrange fixing the heating for my tenant for a whole year before he handed notice (even with me chasing them to do so for months on end). They lied to me about getting my gas certificate renewed. They do not even bother replying to the simplest of enquiries. They did not even remember to give me notice that my tenant was ending the tenancy. Don't be fooled by any competence they may display before you sign up with these guys - they will simply pass the management of your property to a completely different team of people anyway. Currently seeking my fees back and compensation through the TPO. This company is a complete joke from top to bottom! You've been warned. Don’t waste your time and money. Look elsewhere!
They still haven't refunded my deposit three months since we handed back the keys. I would recommend using a different agent if possible.
My experience with Conran Estates (specificaly Samantha) in renting a property in Eltham was excellent. Professional throughout, especially so given a tight turnaround, flexible and helpful. We were very pleased with the outcome and were moved in to our new home with no issues. The only thing we weren't such a fan of was the level of detail that the referencing agency they use requires - but they did ensure any sensitive data was handled correctly.
10 years back we bought property using Conran Estate Eltham and it was fantastic. Now we used them to let the same property and we are completely frustrated with the service of the lettings team in Eltham and Greenwich. An abysmal experience.
Excellent service. Regular updates on negotiations and then proactively checked up on progress with valuers and lawyers.
I viewed a property via this agent and was told the other person who had made an offer was definitely out of the running as they have wasted the agents and sellers time, the term used was 'archived'. Once I tried to request a second viewing the agent then told me that the there was still an offer on the table for the property and that there was little point of a viewing. I was then asked how much I would offer and then when they heard the amount I was point blank refused access to a second viewing. I was blocked at every turn in looking at the property. I thought it was up to the seller to determine which offers were good not the estate agent?. I didn't know that estate agents were telling people how much money they should spend on a property which is what I was told...firmly. If I cannot get at least a second viewing how can I know if I want to offer full asking ? This agent wanted me to tell her that I would offer the full before she would even book the appointment. I think this practice is disgusting. Obviously a place I would avoid in the future.
