This company have been trying to get my business for some time. I was reluctant to say the least after reading reviews on here. However this week I thought why not, they are obviously are persistant and after a number of issues with my current agent I thought I would hear them out. Am I glad i did!! They have offered me the best fee I have ever had in my 20+ years as a land lord. I have saved a small fortune compared to what I was being charged. If I could give one bit of advice to any landlords in or around Colchester it is to listen to what these guys can offer you, I wish I had done it sooner.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! I am a landlord that was renting out a property via Saxons. Part of the agreement was they conduct regular checks to ensure the property is kept in a suitable condition. When my tenant left, it had turned out that the property was far from suitable and was not how it was provided to the tenants initially. Now this did not happen overnight which brings me to question why didnt Saxons bring this issue up beforehand. Now i have two possibilities. Either the inspection was conducted by a blind man or it was not conducted at all. Following on from this, my property required various repairs which exceeded the deposit held. These things happen from time to time, but i was expecting to get my deposit back at the very least. Yeah right! As soon as Saxons realised that i will not be using them anymore, they had no incentive to return the deposit so I had to fork out all repairs myself which could have been prevented if Saxons did what they were meant to do.
Reading through other reviews it would appear that I am not the only victim of the lack of professionalism shown by this so called estate agent. Landlords that are in the property game, use a different estate agents to manage your properties. Con artists looking for their next scam, ask to speak to Jeff Hamblion. If you google search his name, you will see that he has been arrested for theft previously. Now I know who has my deposit money.
**In response to Saxons response, you know full well who I am seeing as you tried calling me to discuss this matter a couple days ago so nice try ????
