We are very satisfied with the eventual outcome of our long association with JCP. Whilst our first attempt to sell and buy a property with them was unsuccessful, by establishing contact we were later introduced to a property "off -market" which was ideal for us (though also rather more expensive). We would like to thank Teresa O'Hara for introducing us to the second property even though when she first did so it was beyond out budget. The sale and purchase involved a chain of 6, and ...

In selling a house I am looking for an estate agent who will be efficient, professional and knowledgeable about the area. I am also looking for someone who cares about the individuals that they represent. i.e a house is not one of a long list of things to do and targets to achieve but a cared for asset belonging to a client. David was calm, honest and sincere. Exactly what we needed. Thank you!...

Through a combination of good relationships with potential buyers and thorough knowledge of the local market, JCP sold my house quickly and to the satisfaction of all concerned. As a seller, I found them positive, friendly and completely trustworthy. Thanks to them my much-loved family home has gone to an enthusiastic new owner. I'll definitely be back when the time comes to find somewhere to buy!...

Please, tenants- especially students- stay away from this company. We rented a property through JCP that was owned by one of it's staff members, Israr. Getting anything fixed was a nightmare. Every time we rang or went in to see them, they'd assure us it would be done soon and then nothing would happen. One of the female letting agents at one point wandered into my bedroom with a large group of strangers- without informing us there was a viewing that day, without knocking on the front door, and ...

I have been letting properties for over 15 years through all the Oxford leading letting agencies. and felt intensely disappointed and by-passed as the owner of the property: most major agents will find reasons why the tenants' damages to properties are simply attribuable to wear and tear is an example. Moving my properties to JCP estate agents has been a revelation: Israr and his team get lovely tenants, lovely levels of rent, and do not patronise the landlord. They are totally fair to all...

I am writing to express my gratitude and appreciation for the most excellent service provided by the JCP Letting Agency in Jericho Oxford on Walton St. I am new to both letting and to the UK so the prospect of letting a place and living in a foreign country was a daunting task. I was especially worried about what to do if items in the home failed and needed repair. I am a customer support manager so I have very high expectations. I have had several issues with major items in the home failing/no...

Both the landlord and the estate agent hid from us the fact that there was an additional £32/week for cleaning (2hrs) and gardening (1hr) that were payable directly to her cleaner and gardener. This was told to us when we went in to sign the lease, with the agent telling us it was "just dropped on him" despite having had the lease drawn up and saying that they had been managing this property for 9 years. The landlord, Rani Lall, was not willing to negotiate on this, but would al...

We recently moved out of a property which we rented for a year. We did not leave because of problems with the property, we left because of James C Penny\'s impossible and obstructive behaviour in dealing with us throughout the year. Any requests were delayed by weeks and emails were not answered. To top it off they have refused to do final gas and electricity readings even though Southern Electric contacted them to do so. In fact, they have actually denied to Southern Electric that they managed ...

Wish we had read the online reviews for this agency before paying them any money. Problems with a private rental. We signed a tenancy contract and paid our deposit plus a large agency fee for a furnished flat. They then decided to let the flat unfurnished for the same rental, and when we tried to get our deposit back they misinformed us about the arrangements for doing so, and did not put me through to the Manager when I rang to try to complain. We have now sought advice and action is bei...

Our experience has been very negative as tenants, and they aren\'t providing good service for the property\'s owner. They\'ve let major repairs go unattended, which has lead to damage to the property. Beware the outrageous lease renewal fee - 50% of a month\'s rent for doing absolutely nothing. They were extremely friendly until we signed the lease; since then they\'ve been impossible to contact by phone or email. Even when we visit the agency in person, they state that repairs will be done but ...
