“Terrible agent, terrible experience! AVOID!!!”

Written on: 05/06/2015 by Delaneydm396 (1 review written)

I have contacted Bairstow Eves and placed an offer on a flat, offer accepted, the Estate Agent took 4 weeks to apparantly 'get keys off the seller'. Although he had it when I viewed the property with him. Then when I threatened to withdraw my offer, he magically got the keys on the same day. After paying £350 for my valuation, have a solicitor ready, emailed him to let him know my solicitor will begin the buying process, he then told me that the property was sold to someone else. I have… Read Full Review

“Absolutley shocking would suggest you to avoid”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by Rebeccawoodhouse (1 review written)

I would strongly encourage anybody not to rent from bairstoweves. When signing to rent a property the people were lovely. Once you have signed your contract its downhill. The maintenance team you never wanted to phone as they were really rude, i waited for someone to come about mould in my house and no one turned up after arranging a day and time with me. Safety checks were carried out but not followed up. It doesn't even stop when you move out of their properties. When I was living my 1 months… Read Full Review

“Shockingly Poor!”

Written on: 16/05/2015

I can't put into words how relieved I am to be rid of Bairstow Eves as our letting agent! They are the most incompetent, dishonest company I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. We rented from them for just over 2 years and from start to finish it was a nightmare! They did nothing they said they would, they lied and we're just generally incompetent and unable to do their job. They entered the property on numerous occasions without informing us they would be coming (this is ILLEGAL) and… Read Full Review

“Nottingham Lettings Department — Worst Experience Ever!”

Written on: 01/05/2015 by 375Cleveland (1 review written)

I let my house through Bairstow Eves Nottingham branch. I've never experienced such incompetence and unprofessional behaviour in my life. Bairstow Eves never failed to disappoint. At no time in the years that I used them did they do anything other than collect their fees. There was never a hint of actual property management. They also allowed the house to fall into disrepair, refused to contact the tenants, and lied repeatedly. I paid for repair work that was never done and ended up losing a… Read Full Review

“Lack of integrity.”

Written on: 04/04/2015 by Kimberlyw437 (1 review written)

Yes, you'll get sold by them if you don't mind they lack integrity and their stories rarely match in the event of problems or mysteriously vanished buyers. Never on time with viewings leaving buyers hanging around. A lot of money for BS. Might as well do it yourself. Another branch other than Norbury might not take you for a ride but on a plus they got a lot of people in on one viewing - but then - there is a property shortage and rapidly rising property prices so no surprises… Read Full Review

“Fantastic feed back and overall a brilliant team ”

Written on: 25/02/2015

I was selling my home through the Bairstow Eves Southend office and my buyer had pulled out on the Thursday. I couldn't believe my ears when by the Saturday the girls in the branch had 6 viewings and had an offer subject to the client viewing my home that was £2,500 more than the original offer. If you are looking for an agent that knows the market & cares about your needs then contact the Southend team as they done a fantastic job and their fee may of been the highest but was worth every… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by Estoum (1 review written)

Avoid Coventry branch. Letting service. They have mislead us into signing an expensive contract. The money of the rent has never been on time. Huge fees and no service at the end. Some staff were even rude to us and very judgemental. Do not sign a contract with them!… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional”

Written on: 19/02/2015 by Maren1952 (1 review written)

Bairstow eves, Not worth rating. A dreadful service and experience from the Norbury office. I found certain staff rude and unprofessional, and the behaviour soon changed from staff when I had to pull out of a sale. They were only interested in trying to take my money for a sale, and would have costed me a lot of extra money which they tried to hide. Luckily, i was well advised and supported by family and friends, and not by the staff team. They were pushing for a sale, not putting things in… Read Full Review

“AVOID COLCHESTER BRANCH!!”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by colchester2 (1 review written)

Marketed our property with B&E in Colchester, had 1 viewing in 7 weeks, the second i leave the country I apparently have 3 viewings!!! But of course the potential buyers want to view the property IMMIDIATELY, which would be impossible as I’m out of the country. On my return I call B&E to enquire about these phantom viewers and apparently all 3 “buyers” within 2 weeks have found other properties which they have already purchased!!! What a bunch of charlatans!!!The agent we dealt with… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/01/2015

DONT EVER RENT FROM WILLAM OWSTEN COURT , THE AGENCY AND MANAGEMENT AGENCY IS A WASTE OF SPACE. WHEN U MOVING IN THEY ARE FRIENDLY AND TWO DAYS AFTER THEY WILL NEVER RETURN YOUR CALL.

“To Avoid, please be aware do not trust”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Moran64 (1 review written)

Just few sentences, be away from that agency if possible, out there there are plenty of other agencies able to accommodate your requests and be trusted. Negotiating with them it's a waste of time, unreliable absolutely untrusted member of staff. Also complaining will not resolve any of you concerns ether with the branch manager or head office, they would not ether knowledge their mistakes. I really hope to help out people who will read this review… Read Full Review

Arranged to view a property, travelled 60miles to the property awaiting viewing at 2.30pm it got to around 2.45pm no one had arrived so I rang the agency and was told the property had been let and we would of been made aware.

“Awful service ”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by LeslyMendoza236 (1 review written)

What a diabolical service. I had to get rid of them after 10 months, Everything had to be chased and a month after the agreement ceased I'm still waiting for my tenant's deposit back from them. Emails went unanswered, calls not returned, if someone was off nobody else could ever help, they gave conflicting info to my tenant. They even asked me to check if the tenant’s guarantee was ok as they weren’t sure. For an almost £80 a month fee I feel ripped off… Read Full Review
