The Letting Shop in Colchester in fact the whole chain of shops is run in an unprofessional and poor manner. Their fees are at the top end of the market even though predominately they are based in Essex (it's not London rates you know!). J300 in total for admin fees for me and my wife and then after a year a further J150.00 for renewal (yes reprinting a contract!) even though we deal direct with the landlord with any issues and pay the rent directly to him. Spoken to them twice this year and they are utterly useless and want J150.00 for not even giving me anything! Ridiculous avoid at all cost tenants and landlords as they will also charge you over J200 for retaining the tenant even though they have done nothing - a big scam disgusts me that companies like this exist.


I have been a tenant with several agents in Colchester, many which claim to be ARLA leaders in the town and just by reading there reviews on google shows that I wasn't the only tenant to have had difficulties with them.

Now currently a tenant with The Letting Shop and have been at my last two properties, all staff from the negotiators, property management and accounts department have all been very helpful. Negotiators were very helpful and kept me upto date with the properties coming onto the market and the property management team have been great, maintenance issues were dealt with efficiently.

Defiantely recommended anyone in Colchester to use this agent!
