  • I would recommend this business

My first property had to be rented out when I moved in with my boyfriend, and i wanted an agent i could trust to handle it for me - I'm too busy for the day to day. Gosia sold me the Guarnateed Rent option, and it is ideal - I get rent paid no matter what happens, and even when its empty, i didn;t know such schemes existed and Gosia and her team are very reassuring.
Highly recommended!

Fobbed off each and everytime, unprofessional, they lie, not happy not impressed will not use will not recommend they reply to you after 10 days of writing to them they do not return calls.

On the day of check out I was ill in bed, my ex said he would take some of the furniture back to my flat for me. Northwood was completing the checkout and my ex was asked to sign off the inventory without my consent or knowledge. I was well enough to get to the flat at approx 4:00pm the same day and noticed the damage to the bedside table. I contacted Northwood straight away but was told they had released the deposit already. I asked how can they release without my consent and was told my ex had signed the papers (I'm the sole owner of the property). Northwood took it upon themselves to return the deposit and asked someone to sign legal paperwork when they didn't have my consent and they knew the person didn't have any legal rights (my ex is a friend of the Directors at Northwood).

Northwood have also contradicted themselves over who holds the deposit, my previous tenants deposit was transferred into my name, this time it wasn't even though I requested at the beginning of the tenancy agreement.

Both of my tenants have complained about poor service too.

Overall ratingFair

Customer Testimonials

Best agent i've come across: helped me to deal with real problems caused by my previous Leicester agent who had not done the paperwork properly and were treating my tenant appallingly - both me and the tenant simply didn't know where we stood. There's too many cowboys out there - switch to an agent that behaves professionally, I'd say. Thank you Northwood, especially Gosia

Exceptional people all with a helpful and professional approach - I loved the way Jadine handled things for my move, dealing with some things I needed the landlord to do - made my move a breeze!

Having made use of the Platinum service for 13 years I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and his team at Northwood. The service gave me peace of mind when I was overseas, Communication was always friendly and professional and I knew my property was in safe hands at all times.

Gosia recently assisted in the sale/purchase of a property, she was brilliantly helpful, going above and beyond to assist in negotiations, providing a level of transparency and honesty that was a credit to her. Thank you!

A market appraisal is a great way to start your property journey. You can find out what your property is worth with a virtual or face to face appointment in your home. If you're thinking of making a move we would love to hear from you.

Being a landlord brings many rewards, responsibilities and risk. Selecting the right letting service for you and your property is all about finding the right balance of all three factors. Our Guaranteed Rent service best suits those looking for the financial stability of a fixed income with no involvement while at the other end of the spectrum the Tenant Find service is perfect for a landlord who is comfortable with taking on a much greater level of responsibility. OurGuaranteed Rent service offers landlords the benefit of a guaranteed fixed income on their property, regardless of whether or not it is let or the tenant stops paying.

These days it seems that almost every estate agent attempts to offer a unique set of services to sell your home, whether it's a free valuation, accompanied viewings or floor plans. At Northwood, we believe achieving a truly successful sale is based on so much more. No two sales are the same, and that's why we offer a fully customisable approach for each of our customers.

Fill in your contact details and one of our team will get in touch to explain the finer details and book a free market appraisal.
