We rented from them for 1 year and I can honestly say it was the worst year of my life thanks to L&Q. There were so many issues with the flat (mold, leaks, rats, electricity faults), they would ignore my emails and never pick up their …

I used to do maintenance for them and I tell you what, they do their best. Problem most of the time is with the residents. They won’t answer phones nor reply to text messages from engineers and then complain about L&Q not doing repairs. …

i just suspect that the rental flat released by this company does not exist. They just release the flat at the very end of the day and the second morning 9.20am it is gone. No matter how hard I tried I cannot get hold of one of their team …

Worst Landlord has no care or respect for the residents. Despite years of complaint did not deal with parked vehicles on a car free development and many more.

They took the deposit money and we are waiting for the works in the property to be done for over a month!
Stay away! Even if you think that the price is very reasonable there is a chance you will not see your apartment

Affordable price flats but at what cost? I chose not to listen to the poor reviews but now I regret. Cancelling check ins one hour before, consecutive postponements to start tenancy date, lack of responsiveness

A company that doesn’t even care about your life. Bins may not be collected for weeks in the building. You can be stuck in the lift for 24 hours and no one will come to help. Worst choice for a place where you want to raise your children well. I wish there was an option where I could give ZERO

Late repairs. Long waiting times on the phone to speak to anyone. They do half a job here half a job there instead of doing each job properly once. They waste people’s times. When you complain they don’t like and accuse you of being antisocial.

Well, they called but although I was holding the phone in my hand I wasn’t able to answer that’s how quick they unconnected themselves. VERY POOR and Unprofessional

My five stars go to the maintenance team here. I do not have dealings in particular with East Thames other than the occasional times that I had to beg to use their bathroom; very clean and noticeably pleasant. If a business could be judged by its toilet facilities, then this is a good business.

We didn’t end up renting from L&Q (just found a flat we liked better) but the service during our inquiry and viewings was outstanding. We were shown around Royal Wharf by Samuel, and I’ve never had such an enjoyable, honest experience when viewing flats. Would absolutely reach out to them again when looking for a new home!

Never ever buy a shared owner ship property from L&Q. One of the worst associations scavenging on blood of hard earners. Totally carless and appalling in resolving issues. The staff is worst than government office staff in third class countries and treat the tenants like third class citizens.
