Very biased towards the landlord. Tenants please avoid if you want your deposit back as they would report issues at checkout that would be there at checkin. They also don’t do any repairs even if it kills you! I left the property they were ...

Exorbitant even before I had to end the tenancy halfway through and be incorrectly charged for fixing the flat. It is very clear that it is in this agent’s interest to encourage tenants to terminate their tenancy mid way as it means more fees from both tenant and landlord.

I would just like to say how fantastic Jack and Ed at John D Wood in Richmond have been. We purchased a property where it seemed everything that could go wrong did, the solicitor on the other side was very unprofessional but Jack and Ed kept the deal on the table, despite many frustrations. They were always courteous and went the extra mile. I would have no trouble recommending this company to anyone and we will definitely be working with them should we be in the market in future. ...

Hi there, Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with the property management service. As your old landlord's PA, I am reviewing the suppliers we use. However, as such I know that in this case you did not receive your security deposit as you and your housemates completely ruined a Rosewood table that cost thousands of pounds. John D Wood were instructed to not release the deposit due to this damage. Regards, Mimi ...

Their fees are high, I wouldn't have minded if the service wasn't terrible and if the manager had the decency to address a complaint rather than say nothing, and respond only over the phone with patrony. Clearly he's well versed in handling complaints.
