Hello Angy. We are aware of your disappointment over the cancellation of your application to rent one of the properties we manage. I do think it is important to read through any contract provided to you before signing. The contract you signed before any monies were accepted from you clearly stated the fees were not refundable. It also clearly explained what would happen to all or part of your holding fee if something adverse showed during your referencing that you had not previously made us ...

Very poor service when the came time to move out of the property, very very reluctant to release deposit. They use a third party to do the inspections and the list of defects signed by the tenant on the moving out day is non reflective ...

I have used this agent for several tenant finds and unfortunately have found that over time their service has deteriorated from reasonable to appalling. As a landlord I need an agent to provide: A good tenant that has been fully referenced BEFORE installation which should ...

Comment on agent fees
The fees were in line with other agencies providing the same service. It was the service that was poor.

The Howland Jones team were excellent in selecting the prefect tenants for 2 of my properties. I have had rent every month and reports on inspections. I don\'t worry about when the gas safety checks are due as they have always been done on time. ...

My family rented a property through Howland Jones which could have seriously injured or even worse killed us , (Similar faults were found at the property they managed next door too). They had not checked any of the Landlords paperwork and some 4 years after renting the ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Let property in line with the law. A property must be safe and not in a state of serious disrepair the start or during a tenancy. It was not and we were allowed to live with significant dangerous faults for over four years. It would have taken them less than an hour to check safety certificates. They still deny they have done anything wrong. They also lied to the couple next door and told them they had to inspect the wood burning stove as a matter of routine. In four years they never check ours or anything else relating to the safe operation of the house!!!

The only action Rebecca Howland should be taking is to apologies to my wife and I and make good for her mistakes. She should have asked and checked the landlords paperwork. If he could not provide it then she should have insisted he did prior to letting the property. We have all the evidence we need, the internal emails and indeed the electricians invoice and report and the stove engineer's email which clearly states the installation of the wood burning stove was a 'DIY job'. It takes a le ...

to have done their job properly from the very beginning, learn to communicate between staff more and not to lie.
