We used JSM (now Leaders) to manage 2 of our properties in Norwich. The Property Manager seemed to change every time we dealt with them, consequently the Inspections were not conducted properly. They failed to notice that there were pets in one property, and the second ...

The lease on this property recently ended. JSM were quite unhelpful on numerous occasions during the tenancy. Requests for landlord maintenance were met with resistance or inaction, check out and return of our Security Deposit turned into a frustrating and drawn out affair and generally ...

I rented a flat for 18 months, and moved out a few weeks ago. Durning the tenancy JSM were actually ok, handling a few maintenance issues efficiently. The only real annoyance were the outrageous fees every six months (around £90). Plus check-in fee, check-out fee, etc... ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
For a start you could abide by the tenancy contract. Trying to charge cleaning fees for minor things is disgusting, and in breach of contract. Sort your staff out - one member told me check-out was free, another said ‚£100 yet I only paid ‚£60???

Very over the top. I don\'t mind paying fairly high fees if I get good service but the service was very poor here.

Avoid this lettings agent at all cost, they are bloody useless. They don't managed anything properly so beware of the property you move into, checks have probably not been done and probably crawling with fleas like the one I just moved into!...

Low admin fees. Doing their jobs properly to not lead genuine tenants into stress and anger.

What agent could do to change your mind?
I would consider using JSM if: - i) They abolished contractually enforcing the tenant to insure the fixtures and fittings. Also Personal contents insurance should be advised by the letting agent NOT insisted as part of the letting agreement. ii) They abolished the rolling 6 month or 12 month contract and replace it with an initial 6 month fixed term contract followed by a 1 month rolling contract. iii) Abolish the renewal fee as I find it hard to accept it costs ‚£70 +VAT to type my name in a document, change the date and print it out. iv) And finally, after reading some of the reviews here, for JSM to train up all their staff to provide the excellent service that a few of them are already providing

The worst letting agents I have ever rented through. I originally rented a house through Bush Management and had no problems whatsoever. Then the worst thing happened. JSM bought them out. I had previously rented through JSM before and already knew of their inferior service, so wasn't looking forward to dealing with them again. I have reported numerous problems with the house I am currently renting; poor insulation, damp walls, a leaking roof, unsafe plug sockets to mention a few things and in t ...

They could have been honest from the start to tell us all the hidden fees, they could have been more flexible with times, they could have been friendlier over the phone and seen us face to face, and after complaining, we have been told that the fees are non refundable which I am extremely angry about.
