Total nightmare. John Boyle entered the property I rented whilst I was out. My neighbour seen him. After confronting him he gave me a month's notice to vacate the property. He kept my deposit, listing all sorts of things I had damaged. I have contacted the property owner direct, they told me that all of the deposit was returned and that John Boyle told them I gave notice to leave....

Hi Gemma, I've searched our records and I can't find you on our list of tenants. We have a very strict policy of gaining permission from the tenant before entering a let property. If you could obtain a written signed statement from your neighbour, I am very happy to investigate. You said you paid a "finders fee of £199. What year was this as I don't remember us ever charging as much as that. We stopped charging any fees on 1st October 2013 after we received definitive guid ...

I am currently a tenant living in a property managed by John C Boyle Letting Agents and I can honestly say that the whole letting process has been excellent. I viewed the flat I am currently in on a Friday evening and was so impressed that I phoned the Company first thing the following Monday. Stephanie was extremely professional and kept me fully up-to-date with the process leading up to signing the lease and her customer service was fantastic. Once everything had been confirmed, Jo...

We received a very personalised and accomodating service from all at John C Boyle property management. Of the few issues we had as tenants of a property leased through John C Boyle, all were dealt with quickly and thoroughly. It was a pleasure to use this letting agency and would easily recommend them to anyone wishing to rent a flat in Glasgow....

I have nothing but good things to say about this letting agency, I even recommended them to my sister who is now renting one of their properties! From the start they have dealt with any queries we\'ve had very swiftly no matter how big or small! Stephanie I have to say has been great with us, always on top with whatever questions we have. I had to add that as I totally disagree with the below review, she always got back to us and is nothing but polite and friendly! Mr Boyle was on hand with t...

I received incredibly poor service from this letting agency. I made an offer on a rented property, and a price agreed. Stephanie (assuming my a new colleague with zero experience in dealing with anything) took hours to reply to emails and referred everything back to the landlord, as expected. A price had been agreed an all we needed to do was to pay the deposit to secure our property. I advised that we would be looking to pay the deposit, but before we do so we wanted to know if it was refund...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Stephanie is quite clearly a new employee with no experience or knowledge in customer service. Carol appears to be someone who despises being in the office and speaking with customer and her attitude was extremely poor after she realised the flat would not be taken by us. John was cold and dry and unprofessional. He did his firm no justice at all by the manner which he carried out his business.

Hi, I'm John, the owner of John C Boyle. I'm sorry Omar missed out on this flat but it was immensely popular and, in order to be fair to everyone that takes the time and trouble to go and see any flat we have, we operate a strict policy of "first deposit paid reserves the flat". The reason for the delay in Omar's case was not so much over the issue about the deposit. All deposits are fully refundable right up to the point that the new tenant signs the lease. The issue that ca ...

I have let my flat in the West End of Glasgow through John C. Boyle for a number of years and am now selling the property. From beginning to end the service I have received has been excellent. The flat has been continually tenanted during the time I have been with the company and I have had excellent tenants. My rent has always been paid on time without any problems and the company take a very reasonable management fee. Over the years John C. Boyle have dealt quickly with any issues that have ar...

I couldn\'t be more pleased with the service I have received from John C Boyle thus far, all the more so given its stark contrast with my previous experiences letting with other agents in the city. Great care was taken from the outset to keep me fully informed about every stage of the renting process, the price is very reasonable indeed and the firm communicates its responsibilities, intentions and key information excellently. All the staff I have dealt with have been personable and helpful and ...

As an owner of a number of properties that I have been let through John C Boyle over the last 18 years, I can thoroughly recommend them to other landlords. The owner and staff have consistently provided an excellent professional but personal service over the years, both in letting the properties out and liaising with myself with regard to any maintenance and repairs required. This excellent service has given me piece of mind, safe in the knowledge that my properties are in good hands. I have al...

I can\'t think of one bad thing to say about this company!! I relocated to Scotland and moved into this flat which was exactly as it appeared on the website and was in great condition. John was very pleasant and helpful when I first met him and knowing I was moving with no support around me was helpful when establishing things such as sky and other services re: sitting in the flat if needed! I had very minor issues when living there such as a leak in toilet which when calling was fixed w...

John C Boyle were very accomodating and arranged for me to view a property at 6pm on a Friday night as I coudn\'t get away from work any other time, I called the following Monday and advised them that I wanted to take the property and move in the following Saturday. Despite it being a very tight time scale they managed to get all the relevant checks done and agreed a move in time of 10am on the following saturday, which meant them juggling other appointments. I can\'t thank them enough for all ...

I am the owner of several properties to let. John C Boyle has been my letting agent for 2 of these properties for approx 5 years. I chose to go with this agent because of the size of the agency and the length of time it has been established. This size of agency gives me friendly office staff to deal with on a day to day basis which I like, while Johns years of experience can ensure I am up to date with legal letting requirements as a landlord. I had been letting these properties for many year...

I rented a beautiful flat in the Southside through John C Boyle from 2010 until 2012. The staff were extremely helpful and provided an excellent service from day one. The agency has a very personal, family feel and it was great knowing that when you call up the staff know who you are and know the properties so well. Repairs were always handled promptly by Carol and I always felt well informed. The move in procedure was very thorough which I liked as it meant everything was well documente...

Absolutely terrible letting agents who charge expensive fees. The moving out process was terrible with their so called independent inventory checkers who in fact have very close ties with the company and are only looking to find the smallest thing to charge large cleaning bills. They charge so many illegal fees and have to continually write to them to get them back. Getting the deposit back was a nightmare too and it took numerous emails and calls after the 14 days with no apology. Stay away fro...

What agent could do to change your mind?
An open and fair charges system as their charges are illegal. Paying back deposit on time without independent inventory checkers who are in fact connected with the company.

We do not charge any fees to tenants, none, not a penny, since the 1st October 2013. When the Scottish Govt issued new guidelines, we, of course, followed their recommendations. Before 1st October, we charged normal fees that were lower than the average fees charged by other letting agents in Glasgow. (we checked) The independent inventory clerk we use is an ex-policeman of 31 years experience and he has no ties with our company except that he provides a quality service which we value. I h ...

Absolutely the worst agent I have ever dealt with. The owner of the business himself seen lost and out of touch and his staff are abysmal. I lived in a property of theirs for several years and on occasion where things did go wrong, getting the problem fixed turned out to be a total rigmarole to the extent where I had no hot water for 18 months due to boiler problems and lack of assistance. They also forgot that anyone was living there from time to time and from the word go had problems with verm...

I remember David. In fact, it's hard to forget. I've been a letting agent for 28 years and David stands out as one of the most uncommunicative tenants I ever had to deal with. We have a policy of not going into a property that we are managing without the clear consent of the tenant. He never responded to our letters or phonecalls or emails or texts. The flat was left in a very poor condition. We sent in a cleaning squad of six to get it back to a reasonable standard. We, of course, have ...
