YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
Our experience working with Hudsons was excellent. From our first meeting to completion (which was unusually swift!), we had a harmonious, mutually respectful relationship. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
We have used the services of Hudsons for nearly 20 years. Robert Burwood, one of the Directors, kept the flat leased for virtually all this time and so, when it came to sale they were the natural choice. The Company has been so impressive that they have been appointed as block managers. Simon Bray was tasked to sell the flat which he accomplished with great professionalism. He worked with both sides and the legal teams to bring the sale to completion. We highly recommend the team.
I have used many estate agents down the years and I have not always been impressed. Hudsons and Simon Bray in particular have been something else.They provided honest , informed advice and maintained excellent communications throughout. They found a buyer in a difficult market (from Singapore) and nurtured the buyer ensuring the sale went through even when things became difficult. They liaised outstandingly well with other professionals on both sides. I am immensely grateful.
I am so impressed by the property management service that Hudson's are providing me with. As it was the first time I was using a property manager for my rental investment I was nervous about who to go to. I am currently living in the US so I wanted and needed a company who were really on the ball and who made sure my tenants were always looked after, if and whenever they had a question or problem. I have come to believe that Hudson's is a highly professional property management company with a very polite and hard-working staff. I would recommend them to anyone looking for help with their rental property.
I take the opportunity of this email just to let you know that Sandrine Locatelli is a great value employee in your agency. She helped me to find my first flat very quickly - and she was absolutely amazing during the last three weeks, in an emergency situation. I complain when I m not happy (french origins) - but I think it's also important to emphasize people's qualities when they're efficient. Great service is high value and she offered me great service, in complicated conditions.
We recently put a bid in on a property but were unfortunately unsuccessful, nevertheless I just wanted to write a big thank you to Margaret and to let the Principal of the Company know how great she was. Throughout the process she bent over backwards to help us, opening the property at various times and was always very knowledgeable and very helpful. She even stayed late one night beyond her finishing time at the property so we could get some measurements done. I was really impressed with her work, and when the time does come for me to buy a property, will have no hesitation in approaching Hudson's first as a result of her efforts. I am really very grateful for all her help.
In the buying, selling and letting of property in London: Covent Garden and Fitzrovia particularly, none can compare to the personal attention of Hudsons. In well over a decade, the wise guidance, knowledge and accessibility of it's founder Jonathan Hudson has been to me a constant. His loyal staff are polite and prompt in response, with Hannah Copues and Sandrine Locatelli impressively informed and helpful with regard to maintenance and lettings; keeping me in the loop at all times. In other words they inspire trust. A vital ingredient if one is unable to be on hand. As with Sherlock Holmes, Hudsons are always on the case.
Unlike any other, Margaret has been professional, transparent, and realistic, in helping me to find and buy a property. She was pivotal in the on-going transaction between me (the buyer), my solicitor and the vendor and his solicitor towards the purchase of the property. As a mediator between buyer and vendor and their solicitors, she was never intrusive but always kept everyone engaged, professionally, a very distinctive feature as most other estate agents tend to be pushy and down right rude! It is people like her who will always shine in your business given most things now can be retrieved from the internet; she has something extra to offer in ways I have described above that an internet website can never do. This survey does not accurately explain the excellent service provided by Hudson’s Margaret Connerty.
I was happy to use Hudson’s as I have lived in the area for many years and so got to know the area and the companies I would wish to do business with and Hudson’s was one of those companies. As they are a local company, and have been here a long time, they know the area and its specific details, it’s history along with its future and character. When you’re looking to sell a property there are so many factors to take into account and Hudson’s did tick all the boxes as far as I was concerned. So I sat back and let them do all the promotion and selling and my flat sold quickly. I have no hesitation in recommending Hudson’s to potential buyers and sellers.
It is my pleasure to recommend Hudsons as a lettings agent for any individual or company searching for the ideal location in the West End for their business situation. As a member of the Finance Committee for a church in Marylebone it was imperative for me to find new tenants for our investment property following the vacation of a long term tenant
