“Unprofessional, lazy, useless”

Written on: 30/12/2015

If I could have given them 0 stars that would be more accurate. Don't use Fox and Sons unless you have no other choice. We will never use them to sell again and I would not view a house if they were sole agents. The company philosophy seems rotten to the core and even senior management fail to see the problems. As long as they're making money then they really don't care about providing reasonable levels of service. Dreadful!… Read Full Review

“bullying tactics !!!”

Written on: 04/12/2015

I am never using fox and sons ever again. I was verbally attacked down the phone. And was told broken chains were my fault. How can I buy there property if some pulls out of buying mine !!!!! Unless I win the lottery what other choice is there. Not helpful at all. I will never recommend them to anyone as a seller or someone that wants to buy a property from them. And getting the address for head office is impossible as I would like to formally complain… Read Full Review

“Dishonest, appalling attention to detail, blame customers.”

Written on: 09/11/2015 by IpRab (1 review written)

I placed my property on the market with the Hastings branch. When I received the property details there were several errors relating to the description of the property. They could not spell my name correctly, when I pointed this out I was blamed. I included the Audio Visual Tour at a cost of 200 pounds plus VAT, we were told we would be refunded this when the sale was complete. After the sale, I asked when I would be refunded, I was told I did not qualifiy as I did not use their conveyancing… Read Full Review

First, a big thank you to the Manager and his sales team for getting the sale to the point of exchange contracts. I know that people have worked hard on this. I have appreciated the honesty and candour of the people with whom I have dealt with.

“Stay Away!!!”

Written on: 21/09/2015 by Yaird195 (1 review written)

I viewed a house twice after which I made an offer, they did not bother to even phone me to tell me whether or not the offer had been accepted; I had to phone them. When I made a further offer again nothing from their end. I even had my doubts whether or not my offer was passed on to the seller. They lack the ability to communicate, no one phones back when you leave a message. With the property that I was after they told me that someone had sold it but they did not know who had actually sold the… Read Full Review

“Avoid Avoid ”

Written on: 29/06/2015 by jayant (1 review written)

This agents live in a world of their own and cannot answer a simple question of how much they are marketing the property on thier books and refuses to let cutomers have their details. Dealt with the Manager but knows sord all! Trying to get in touch with their head office is just as bad. They are supposed to be open between 8 -6pm. you try and its always an Ansphone. Tried to complaint but who to. Looks like a bunck of cow boys to me. I hold a portofolio of 50 properties and never have i come… Read Full Review

“Total Harassment”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by Drake317 (1 review written)

This company hounded me constantly, up to four phone calls a week and two to three letters per week they were insisten, I have told them not to contact me on many occasions and they totally ignored this. I am NOT using Fox and sons as my estate agent, the above harassment was to try to get me on their books. Even when i informed them I have now gone under offer, they still phone me and ask if i want to sell with them. I would never use this estate agent they are too concerned about… Read Full Review

“Property Ombudsman Here We Come ...”

Written on: 13/05/2015 by MatthiasO'Connell (1 review written)

My parents (retired) are so fed up and stressed out because of F&S and their useless band of conveyancing solicitors. They mistakingly thought it was a good idea to sell through these jokers but what should have been a quick and easy sale (they are chain free selling to first time buyers) is now w-a-y beyond any timescale you can imagine. All papers signed back the beginning of March with no completion date even in sight. Why? Well, we'd all love to know and by "we", I mean both the seller… Read Full Review

Head office independently review files so I sense sour grapes here !! If they said 6 weeks and tied you in for 4. They have done you a favour and perhaps the truth is something you don't like to hear

“shocking and misleading”

Written on: 22/04/2015 by ybMadden105 (1 review written)

we used fox and sons in mid sussex to market our home during late 2014, we were visited by the agent who did the measure up and prepared the contract for my wife to sign, he failed to point out we were tied in for six months, but more of a concern was that we were sold a marketing pack which we paid upfront for which we were led to believe covered the EPC certificate but it did not. the marketing pack was £240. which we later found out was non returnable, when i disputed the EPC as i had been… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY ”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by Perla411 (1 review written)

Fox and Sons, Hastings, are an absolute disgrace. They bombard you with calls and emails that forcefully try and make you choose one of their many poor mortgages. Unless you agree to an appointment with their in house mortgage agent, they will not let you view a house. They are unethical, rude and a very dishonest organisation… Read Full Review

“Awful Service, DO NOT USE”

Written on: 12/01/2015 by Pattondh55 (1 review written)

My partner and I went to a view a property which was being sold by Fox and Son's. After the second viewing of the property, which had been on the market for 6 months, we put in an offer £2,500 less than the asking price. Fox and Son's came back to me and said the vendor accepted our offer. We arranged to go into the office to show we had all our finances in place but instead we were put in front of the mortgage adviser who informed us that an offer of the asking price had come up and that we… Read Full Review
