Tobin Jones is unscrupulous in his treatment of tenants, landlords and employees. Any maintenance is carried out by his own company (Occulus). They are slow to respond to repairs (6 weeks without an oven) and the work is shoddy and unprofessional. The Grade 2 listed property I live in is undergoing necessary repair. There are several leaks, lumps of render falling from the exterior and ceilings are shedding plaster. There is scaffolding at every floor and upstairs windows do not shut properly. My family is expected to live on this dangerous and insecure building site and pay for the pleasure. Having witnessed an administrative employee measure for a conservation window using a seamstresses tape measure I contacted the Conservation Officer. She was not impressed whilst Occulus builders are uncomfortable to start work without the correct planning permission (a criminal offence) and asked me to get her to revisit the property. I suspect though that they are worried about losing their jobs. I also suspect that the actual landlord (who lives in New Zealand) is unaware of the poor service he is receiving from Tobin Jones. Private tenants have few rights and this is exploited to the full by Tobin Jones
