Hunters lied to us from the start - we paid extra to get a furnished flat, only to move in to find no furniture, as the person managing this had been fired, there was no note and they refused to provide us with any furniture which we ended up buying ourselves at great expense.
Additionally, as we agreed to pay a higher rate for furniture - they then issued everyone else in our flat block with eviction notices unless they agreed to pay the same rate as we were. Including a young family, whose child had justed started school around the corner.
Oh and then - after ONE MONTH of living in the property they called us to say that we owed them £500 of admin fees (which we had never been told about) and if we didn't pay within a week we would have to move out of the property.
When there were issues with the flat - such as the washing machine flooding our bathroom - they did not send someone round or sort it out. After two days of our washing machine leaking I managed to get the name of the plumber they use and organised this myself. But that was only after refusing to pay rent.
About half way through our tenancy we learnt that hunters had not being paying our rent to the owner of the property and keeping it for themselves. 6 months later, the owner still hasn't received that money and I believe they are being taken to court over the matter.
When we came to move out, they withheld our deposit from us - with no basis as they hadn't even managed to do an inventory when we moved in - we had to threaten legal action and involve the TDS to get it back.
Terrible, illegal behaviour - absolutely do not rent or let your property with the Stoke Newington Branch or Shah.
