Overall, a poor service for students. Initially things seemed to go well with Littlejohns as property managers as they replaced our broken fridge and hoover quite quickly. However, when our freezer door would not close properly, we rang on multiple occasions to try to get it fixed and nothing happened for months, which resulted in us having to use the fire extinguisher to keep it closed. Our kitchen chairs also took a long time to get repaired after wear and tear.
This would all be tolerable, however my flatmates and myself were then charged £90 to send an email reference to our new landlords, money that we just didnt have. When I tried to impress this point on Littlejohns I felt I was dealt with in a rude manner and it just seemed like they didn't care about how difficult it was for us to find the money. Overall, I would have to say it was quite a disappointing experience, with atrocious customer service!

Raine was really helpful and kind during the inspection. I am delightful to do the inspection together with her. Plus, the landlord was very kind. I met them twice, and they even clean the garden for us. Kudos to Littlejohn for the great services!...

at the time fees were really high but they are now abolished so shouldn't be a problem for new tenants

Hello Sarah - I think when Fees were chargeable you would find it was per person with other Agents as well but as you now rightly say they are now abolished. We would like to thank you for taking the time to write this view and leave comments. We wish you all the very best. ...

Worst service ever. I urge you to do your research before signing anything. I wish I had. We moved into our flat and found it to be disgustingly dirty. It was over the holiday season and so we stupidly cleaned the flat ourselves. We took ...

They look to charge you for tenancy agreements (most charges can be dropped if you look into them). They will also charge you for ridiculous reasons on check out

I found out that they have been entering my rented flat without my knowledge. Their excuse is that they sent me an email, I must not have gotten it. There was no email and I've also discovered that this is not a single occurrence and it has really shook me up to think of a stranger coming into my home (as it turns out on a number of occasion) when I'm at work. Also the realisation that I have zero privacy. I shall be making a complaint to the relevant ombudsman and if I catch wind that they'v ...

Littlejohns have some great staff; but a bad company. First up, they still charge illegal premiums, conclusively outlawed in 2012. When challenged on this they threatened me with legal action for defamation, which is patent nonsense. After I began a legal challenge they IMMEDIATELY returned the ...
