Gatekeeper are full of totally inadequate staff that operate like their job is to make you as dissatisfied as possible. Could never get a decent answer from any queries (always being made to an 0845 number so you are charged to chase up every time). Had 3 different Property Managers equally as useless as the last, never having any communication between each other or an idea at what goes on. Also be warned, we received information from another letting agency that Gatekeeper only allow you 6 month leases so that you can 'work out if you want to stay long term' but this is actually common practice so that they can charge renewal fees. You have been warned!!

Unfortunately I had the misfortune of renting out a property from Gatekeepers in Chain Court, Old Town, Swindon. The problem started from first viewing when the gatekeeper agent lied to about damp marks on the walls. We were told they were historic issues and had been fixed however a few days after we moved in we realised that the wall had mould growing on it. Six months ahead, after countless number of visits from supposedly damp experts and a large hole in the wall to investigate the issue, nothing has been done yet. Me and my wife are both developed breathing problems and my numerous tries to get released from the contract have failed on the basis that the damp issue is under investigation and there is nothing else the landlord can do about it.

We are forced to sleep in the lounge of a two bedroom flat because both bedroom are in unliveable conditions due to exposure to mould. Furthermore when we moved in the bed in the second bedroom was broken. On contacting gatekeepers, rather then apologising the landlord sent a message through them to say I allow the tenants to buy their own bed however they will have to store the broken bed in the property and put it back up when they leave. After a few heated arguments they agreed to replace the bed, a month after we moved in.

There have been numerous other issues in the 5 months we have been in the property ranging from washing machine breaking down, mould in kitchen cabinets to finding used razor blades behind the toilet sink from previous tenants. I am not sure how they are with other tenants but from this experience I would not recommend gatekeeper to anyone and would advise any prospective tenants to contact current tenants about behaviour of the landlord with tenants.

I would like to advice all estate agents specially gatekeepers that they should be more mindful of tenants rather than just being a landlord's agent. Tenants are the ones who suffer from any problems with the property. The landlord and estate agents should appreciate that any delays in rectifying these issues have a huge impact on their standard of living especially issues that can impact tenant's health e.g. Mould. At the end of the day tenants are your customers and you have no business if you have no tenants.

Customer Testimonials

I am very impressed by the service given to me by Gatekeeper.
The team have been very detailed in the explanations and answers to my questions.
As a new Landlord this has been really important to me building trust and giving me confidence I feel I need in my Letting Agent.
Thanks to you all.

We have dealt with the team at Gatekeeper for the last 2 years and in that period they have been nothing less than excellent. Whatever you're looking for, be it as a landlord, or a tenant, or a potential buyer I really cannot recommend them enough.
Please give them a try.

Phil is the ideal person to promote a property for rent or for sale. I had tenants moving in within a week of Phil taking it on. And all hassle free. He is totally non- pushy which I like too. His articulate positive marketing did the job. Because of Phil I would recommend Gatekeeper to anyone wanting to let a property..or indeed sell. Many thanks Phil for a job superbly well done

I have never rented a property before and the team at gatekeeper are amazing!
Really helpful and nothing is ever an issue! I have had a couple of queries which was dealt with straight away!
The fact you are kept upto date with all the progress of the move is a real gem as you know where you are with stuff.

The entire team from top to bottom were professional helpful and friendly. We were kept informed at all stages right through and everything went as planned. Thank you.

I have used gatekeeper to handle the sale of my property on two different occasions. Both times I have been very pleased with the service provided. Highly recommended.
