After we signed the lease for the flat last year, they asked if we could move in a day later than the agreed upon move-in date, as the previous tenants were requesting for an extension. We agreed with the understanding that in return our move-out date would also be extended a day later than the one we previously agreed on. And now, they refuse to change our move-out ... more

I have rung them twice now to enquire about viewing a property. Once they basically told me to go away because they are too busy and not accepting any new registrations. On another occasions they told me to phone a different office to set up a viewing, when I asked for the number for that office they hung up the phone on me. I think it was the same woman both times. I cannot believe how rude these people are.

The Highcliffe branch are not any better, dishonest and poor customer service. Wouldn't deal with them again, once is enough frankly.

We are currently renting with the Winkworth, and since we decided not torenew our contract, they are now trying to "screw us over."

I have had a pretty terrible experience dealing with the Winkworth Willesden Green office regarding a flat rental which has just been concluded with them sending me a cheque for twice the disputed amount. However this only happened after they forced me first to go through their 2 internal review processes (which funnily enough did not find any case for them to answer), and then proceeding to the Ombudsman. When moving to the UK in January I put down a deposit on a flat with the office in Willesden Green - the agreement was to move in 2 weeks later, giving winkworth plenty of time to complete all of their paperwork. To be fair, the guy who showed me the place ... Read the complete review

My experience with Winkworth Estate agent in New Cross Gate was nearly traumatic when I tried to buy a house and I would imagine it to be as bad for renting. It took us nearly a year to get the house after we identified it as the house we wanted. First of all we had an estate agent who had no idea what he had to do and he actually said it himself, the agent manager did not even train him so he duplicated papers, created a whole mess and confusion amongst the solicitors and us and the seller. At the nearly end of the whole buying process, the estate agent phoned us couple of days before us finally signing the deal and moving in, to inform us that he had found ... Read the complete review
