Like another person stated they are very friendly but that's about it. 1st dealings with Foxtons Croydon branch was last year, it went well enough but refused to budge on my maximum rental budget, additionally discovered the agent lied about the monthly price, one price online but she kept quoting me a higher price, asked her about it was told it was a different unit although 2 days prior she clearly stated this was the Last unit. Subsequently and intentionally avoided her this time. Went through various searched with a different agent this time, he appeared nice enough, finally found a property that I loved, put an offer in £100 below the asking but still high solely on the location despite the small size. Made it clear I ddint want to be messed around as I had a subject to viewing offer on a different property 1 minute away. Was told Landlord was happy with the price no issues however could I reconsider 1 Yr break clause rather than 6months which I accepted, asked them what bedded to be done to secure and stop viewing at 11am, was told paperwork will be sent out, was also told many times they had no viewings since the property was listed. 11am accepted counter offer, cancelled my offer on the other property which released it to another renter. To my disbelief recieved a call from Foxtons at 2pm telling me an offer was on the property can I increase by another £50 Apparently the landlord liked my profile etc if I went up he'd sign immediately. All this while I recieved an alert from Rightmove of a price drop for the property from £1500 to & £1450 .. Asked immediately why the price was dropped, he pretended he didn't know about it, also inferring the landlord must have changed the price online I.E. Logged into their website changed the price and Also ALL the property listings on various platforms all the way from shanghai too.. INCREDIBLE. Infuriated at the audacity of them, I pulled out and told them freely to let the 'OTHER PERSON' have the property! 3 days later a friend of mine called in for the Same property she was offered a viewing for the FOLLOWING Week! I don't trust Foxtons I believe they use little dirty tactics to get more money out of you at the last minute, I also don't like bare faced lies in business. If you're reading this look for the negative reviews you'll see a pattern. Would have happily increased my offer, but didn't on principle. Should have gone with the other property listed with a different agency, they had more integrity but hey learnt my lesson! thanks!
