Hello! Thanks for the comments! @ravingreviewer It is the Durham branch of Reeds Rains, on Old Elvet, selling in the Durham area. @1st2thebar I understand your point, and I acknowledge that there are uncertainties in the market in the last part of my review. But I don't think that excuses bad customer service - I wasn't kept informed satisfactorily. I am sure that a better agent could have either got the house sold quicker, or for a better price - and maybe both. by Stephen123123

Ludlow Thompson Rip Off Con Men
Review of ludlowthompson.com by LJGems

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: AVOID, AVOID, AVOID CON ARTISTS!

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY TO EITHER RENT YOUR PROPERTY NOR AS POTENTIAL TENANTS. Their fees are ridiculously high and they are rude inefficient and incompetant! They conned both myself and my tenants into a three year deal when both parties only wanted 12 ... Read review

I found this review helpful, but I would strongly advise you to remove the word con men. It may very well be true, but it can be taken as libel. I think I would use something like unscrupulous instead. Same general meaning but less likely for them to be able to make a case of it. I only know as issue was made over me calling one firm cowboy builders years ago - they were - and worse they did an awful job, I caught an employee searching through my underwear drawer claiming he was looking for the loo and then he took offense when I said he wouldn't find it in a dresser drawer and peed all over the house - but I couldn't prove it and could have gotten into trouble. by Marge3781

LudlowThompson - rip off merchants
Review of ludlowthompson.com by ChuckMaverick

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: expensive and watch out for dodgy charges

I'm a landlord and I've rented my small flat out via Ludlow Thompson. It's been a nightmare from the start as it's endless charges they keep putting on my account. First of all the additional management fee they calculate on top of the agreed management ... Read review

Townends provide no service to landlords
Review of Townends by ZookeeperHasEars

Advantages: They are reasonably on the ball with regard to monitoring
Disadvantages: They are unable to provide a maintenance service which is reputable

Townends property services are to be avoided at all costs and can not be recommended. They own their maintenance company called INEX which is not only a conflict of interest but INEX actually engage in generating unnecessary work and provide overpriced ... Read review

Property management was terrible
Review of Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward by jxw002

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: Very poor care, unless you are the landlord

Do not use KFH. We rented for 18 months, the experience was dreadful, they take weeks to get anything fixed, don't answer calls, emails, letters. When you leave they show new tenants round with 30minutes notice and are supposed to be impartial but writ ... Read review

Disadvantages: EXPENSIVE, MISLEADING, PROBLEMATIC

Brought a hippo skip bag from B&Q - £30. Filled skip up with rubble and ordered Hippo to come and collect it. They tried - but it was too heavy. When I phoned them and asked why - they informed me that rubble should only be stacked to the black line. ... Read review

Maybe you could explain what a Hippo bag is and why you bought it - is it a rucksack type of thing, or for laundry/household use? Also how much do they cost and can you buy them from anywhere other than the manufacturer? by KateHurst

Terrible
Review of Allied Pickfords by MattGuidford

Advantages: upfront customer service
Disadvantages: Thieves, over priced, broken items

After 3 international moves in the last 3 years this is the worst moving company I've come across. Moving is stressful enough not to have to deal with these cowboys. My wedding ring was stolen by one of the crew member in our house and basically been ... Read review

Gone above and beyond on several occasions
Review of Spicer Haart by krone9

Advantages: reasonably priced, extremely professional and responsive organisation
Disadvantages: initially looked pricey - worth a discussion about the services they can offer tailored to you

I engaged with Haart towards the end of 2012 and am still using their services as a very satisfied customer. I used Haart to find me a tenant and then because I wanted to manage it myself they then allowed me to take over the process. I paid a very rea ... Read review
