Foxtrot Oscar to Foxtons

Section:

Foxtons: A scourge on society

 

There are estate agents and then there’s Foxtons. Not content with charging a landlord client £616 to change a lightbulb and not ashamed to market a squalid flat close to London’s most polluted road as “gorgeous”, this shameless estate agency chain has now installed spikes to prevent homeless people sitting on the ledges of their Holborn offices.

 

Foxtons is a company that provides proof that estate agents should be better regulated

Back in 2005, the public reveled when a Foxtons Mini was trashed and dumped in a field in Dorset but now this lacking in moral compass firm has truly bitten off more than it can chew. Facing a potential legal bill of £42 million if all their landlords join he action against them, it’ll soon be time for Foxtons to do one last thing: Foxtrot Oscar.

    1. Whooaaa where do we start? I have known them to be described by others as the hyenas of the veld. Currently I have a situation where I am short-letting out a flat for a friend in Chelsea and he trying to sell it. Despite clear instructions to the dreaded Foxtons (chosen by him not me) on how and when to show the flat, a Foxtons man still waltzed in having used the key from the unwitting porter to find my tenant just out of the shower in her towel. She got a fright. I immediately had the locks changed (just incase they had sneakily made a copy) and serious clear instructions and presents etc. to the porters to enforce “Foxtons hands do not touch key” that they can only go when a cleaner is there in between lets (which they knew before!) Their memory is short. I have also had them trying to bully my Manager saying “I need to see the flat today!”. As you know it by law that the agent gives 24 hours’ notice to a tenant to enter/veiw the property in which they are dwelling.
      Law? Foxtons? They don’t know each other. Shame.
      The tenant wrote a bad review on my website before I found out about the incident. Otherwise I could have smoothed things over. Shame.

      I have other stories, but I can’t take up all your space. This is merely the most recent one. I cannot say my name as my boyfriend knows the owner of Foxtons.

    2. What an underhand and greedy money grabbers Foxtons are. They take Gordon Gekkos analogy of greed is good to a whole new level. It’s one thing to be successful, but something else to be blatantly ripping off your business associates!
