The initial contact with John German was very positive, right up until the first day of tenancy, the viewing and application process all went smoothly. Having got the first load of items in the rental van to the new house, I went to the office ...

Given the timescales mentioned it appears this tenancy may have originally been set up via the John German Lettings business. However, the John German Lettings and Management business was sold to Countrywide PLC in November 2013 and any issues arising since that date, which would include the check out and viewings with potential new tenants, were the responsibility of Countrywide PLC. We wish to make clear this review has no bearing on the continuing Residential Sales business of John German. ...

Ms Fuller was disgruntled because we found that she had been smoking in a non smoking property and this was noted on the check out report. The landlord had to have the carpets cleaned and wallreprisinged to eliminate the cigarette odour throughout. We would not use the word 'peed' however as the radiator front situated to the side of the guest w/c was very rusty and soiled I explained that it looked like urine splashes could have caused this to happen, obviously from when males using the to ...

Hi RL, I work in the Uttoxeter/Ashbourne branches at John German and I am concerned with your comments. Were you a Uttoxeter or Ashbourne tenant? Would you email me with your details so that I can look into this for you; you are allowed to have a copy of the invoices with regards to any cleaning/damage that is to be deducted from your deposit. We also also endeavour to visit the property for the check out on the day the tenancy expires unless this falls on a sunday or bank holiday, ...

Myself and my partner are having the same problems. Moved into the house in march this year, in april we reported the downstairs heaters give off fumes and the roof leeks (leaks?) it is now october and still nothing has been done despite ringing almost every week. To make thing worse they know we have a baby and coming up to winter we need both problems doing. We sent them a letter threatening to contact environmental health if things dont get done by the end of the month. They sent a letter bac ...
