“Harassment”

Written on: 27/02/2021 by BAbraham (1 review written)

I asked them to come and evaluate my property for sale 6 months ago. Decided not to go ahead not put the property the market, informed them of this but it has been ignored and since then I have been in receipt of multiple phone calls from them all seeking to put my house on the market. Each time I have asked that my name and number be removed from the books so this doesn’t happen again. But at least once a week I get a call from them asking the same thing. Utter harassment. Ended up blocking… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2018 by 27Foley (1 review written)

Put £570 holding fee down for a property we liked, tenant letting search revealed my had a CCJ about 7 years earlier. There was no communication until I made the calls/emails.

Needless to say lost my £570. Thanks fully there are laws coming soon to prevent… Read Full Review

“Never use them again!! Swindon Branch”

Written on: 09/09/2018 by AedanMcCurdy345 (1 review written)

I have been using their service both letting and selling my properties. Terrible service in letting. Now I am still waiting selling my two properties the first one had an offer in March! They recommended non professional solicitor firms to buyers. Asking silly questions make both transactions become very protracted.They suggested a completion day then turned around next day saying the buyers might not get a mortgage! How did this happened! Serious advise-just DO NOT USE them at all… Read Full Review

“worst letting agent I've ever dealt with (FROME Lettings)”

Written on: 17/07/2018 by MJM1965 (1 review written)

The worst letting agent I have dealt with. Terrible communication. Rudeness. Terrible customer service. Not adhering to contract on several occasions. Broken items (under contract) in home left unfixed for lengthy period - had to fix myself.Not returning deposit (still waiting, and being told I need to wait longer, contrary to TDS rules) in set period. When I stated that I would seek legal advice, and leave an appropriate review, I was told not to use 'threatening language'. Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

Asked for a home report to be sent for a house in Clarkston, agent called me up giving me attitude and not wanting to send me home report out unless I come in to branch for a meeting with their mortgage advisor. Eh no thanks I’m all sorted I want to read the home report before I decide if property worth viewing. If your selling your house please think twice about using this lot. First time I’ve ever been given hassle like this when interested in a property .....they still haven’t sent… Read Full Review

“Could not be bothered turning up to a pre-arranged survey”

Written on: 29/03/2017 by Sariahu74 (1 review written)

The customer service is appalling. The pre-arranged survey was also appalling, as they did not bother to turn up and when I telephoned them, they told me a different date on the phone to the one they booked and sent a text confirmation on. They also told me that the tenant telephoned them to cancel it, yet I am the owner selling the house and I had arranged the survey with them. Plus, there were two properties and I do not know why they cancelled the meeting on both on the saying of one of the… Read Full Review

“Not a good experience”

Written on: 01/11/2016 by Aminay350 (1 review written)

I was cold called by the local Allen and Harris estate agency as we were marketing our property through an online agent. Their pitch was that they had a much broader marketing base with many clients all over the country looking for a house like ours. On that basis I agreed to a visit from an agent with a view to instructing them as well. The agent spent a total of 12 minutes in my (quite large) property and was reluctantly persuaded to look at it all. He was lukewarm about the property and… Read Full Review

“Awful would never recommend!”

Written on: 14/07/2016 by Alexisw226 (1 review written)

Had so many problems with this company. Their customer service is appalling! I had to send the property details back 5 times due to simple English grammatical errors and even went sent back for amendment the same mistakes came back with more mistakes added on one occasion. Despite finally having my house sold by them and completed in January (6 months ago!) I received a phone call today asking me about the sale of the house and whether I was still considering selling it! Absolute joke!… Read Full Review

“Unhelpul & hard to contact”

Written on: 07/08/2015 by Monaghanff174 (1 review written)

I visited allen & harris as I was selling my property & buying a new house. I had the estate agent up to give us an evaluation which went fine, we then had an appointment with the solicitor/mortgage advisor. All went fine he said he would get back to us with a mortgage in principle amount we could get offered. After 2 phone calls to the office & almost 3 weeks later I have never heard back from then.

“Avoid like the plague!”

Written on: 05/08/2015 by 389Silva (1 review written)

A disgrace of a company at the Dennistoun Glasgow branch who will happily take your money and do No work for it. We received 12 viewers with feedback from 4 of them. Avoid avoid avoid this lazy inadequate bunch of agents...they do not care,they have no selling techniques and are a headache to deal with. We had a viewer come back for a second viewing, so enthusiastic and was talking about where to Place the furniture and for some reason allan and Harris couldn't get a hold of said person… Read Full Review

“Do NOT use these people!”

Written on: 19/06/2015 by 87O'Grady (1 review written)

I regretfully and innocently used these people (Frome office) when I found a property I liked (no chain). I never would have set foot inside Allen and Harris if I had known how deceitful, underhanded and unprofessional they were. I had to withdraw from the purchase after 4 months because the sale was not progressing with the conveyancers, Premier Property lawyers, that A & H had recommended to me (commission based). They are notoriously slow and slapdash. Four months down the line and the… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs - incompetence, aggression and deceit”

Written on: 14/02/2015 by Mckayla193 (1 review written)

A terrible experience at from the Witney branch - the manager here resorts to aggression and bullying tactics to try and get what he wants. Exposed a first time buyer to a potential financial loss of thousands of pounds, wilfully concealing information - NO CONSCIENCE, a despicable individual. When it became clear that legal issues with the purchase were going to create a lot of extra work, he more or less admitted the small fee he would get on the transaction was barely worth his while. I… Read Full Review

“Beware False Valuations ”

The same agent gave one valuation to us when asked to value the property for a private sale and a valuation of £25,000 less to a part exchange agent. They were lying to one of us the property can't be valued at both amounts. Worrying that this company condone false valuations to secure business… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS.”

Written on: 22/05/2014 by fhCollins265 (1 review written)

A friendly start for us, as a small family looking to buy a house, all smiles and handshakes. Then once we'd signed on the dotted line it soon turned into a barrage of phone calls with threats of people pulling out and extreme pressure causing a huge amount of stress to my family. I also didn't appreciate the cowardly agent, Damien, calling my wife's mobile phone instead of our main line because he seemed to find it easier to bully her. Damien also seemed to spend a lot of time badgering our… Read Full Review

“Feeling bullied into paying a price or they would...”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by Adamsj05 (1 review written)

After my survey I approached the branch of Allen & Harris for advice on the information and was told don't ask for a reduction or you will loose the property and they don't blame me if I pull out, I actually felt intimidated rather than helped. Low and behold even when I agreed to pay the. Original price they had taken new viewers to the property and sold for a higher price to somebody else, even when the survey said the property value was less than the asking price. I have bought many… Read Full Review
