This property and tenant does not ring any bells and it seems very strange that the person has not identified themselves! The is always a reason why certain costs are applied to a tenant(s). If a property has not been left how is should be according to the contract I don't see why the landlord should pick up the cost. If the person was professional enough to leave their name and property address I could comment on the matter is a more comprehensive manner and address any concerns. As such, th ...

The tenant's name is not linked to this company. I've never heard of anybody call Kendrick? That aside, we always advise of any costs prior to a move in so tenants need to calculate and evaluate their budget prior to a move in. Furthermore, agents charges will differ all over the UK so this individual is probably not comparing like with like. It sounds like the tenant is saying if you are more expensive than another firm that they have previously used you are subsequently a bad organisation? Tha ...

Scandalous. £120 'rush fee' to get you in a property within 2 weeks. £165+VAT to make one amend to the contract. Maintenance quotes that are nearly double the market rate. My landlady and I now work directly to do any maintenance as his service has been so bad and a rip off. We have compared quotes and had work done for nearly half the price. And yet she's still paying him £200 a month when she's effectively managing it herself now.

Helpful review that resonates with my experience with this man and his company. Reading through his defensive replies not once does he take responsibility for his actions and it always seems his clients are to blame or in the wrong. Even sinking to the depths of a vicious tirade. This is the response and approach of a trusworthy, friendly professional? That alone should speaks volumes. People dont write negative reviews without reason and make things up, what is the point in that? Hopefully ...
