Stay Away. They are Liars and Thieves. They did not stick to their own contract. Did very inadequate work. Did nothing to address my concerns. They lied to the tenants about the landlord and lied to the Landlord about the Tenants in order to screw both out of Money so that they could make more. Ended up winning my case through legal action....

We rented through Tobin Jones for 5 long years. They are APPALLING! DO NOT RENT FROM THIS LOT. They seem to specialise in employing rude people for their "team". John Ryan (apparently no longer blighting tenants lives) is one of the most pompous men I have ever had to deal with. He is always, always right, by default. His sidekick, the delightful (NOT) Geri Burton is a chip off the old block, who delights in making tenants feel like they are something very unpleasant on the bottom of ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They could have been friendly. They could even have been polite. Not likely - the rot begins and ends with Mr Tobin Jones.
Comment on agent fees
They attempt to charge for all sorts of things. They like to see what they can get away with and clearly view tenants as cerebrally challenged inferior beings.

STAY AWAY EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER 1 OR 2 PERCENT. When I first decided to rent my property I was warned against using Tobin Jones but stupidly ignored this advice because they were 0,25% cheaper than the other agents I spoke to. As a landlord initially approaching Tobin Jones they were very attentive and helpful so I though maybe the advice was wrong. Once I had signed on the dotted line however they were significantly less attentive and the following two years turned out to be an...

I have been renting a property with Tobin Jones for a while now and have been only impressed with the level of service they provide. Whenever we have needed anything doing in the house it has been completed in a timely manner to a very good standard by the maintenance company Oculus. When we first moved into the house it was clean and tidy and all of the paperwork was completed quickly and efficiently by their professional staff members. We have had a very good experience renting through ...

Throughout the viewing process and feedback to the end of tenancy procerdure they have always been very helpful and professional.

First Class Lettings Company - Consultative, personal team who were always available and couldn\'t do enough to help us... Can I just say that the team at Tobin Jones moved heaven and earth for me and my house mate to get into a new property. Both the business owner Tobin Jones and their team members including Maxine Allington and Ardi were professional, friendly and negotiated what could have been a very difficult situation for us, as we had an abhorrent experience with another local letting ...

They are civil enough, but completely inflexible. It seems anything out of the mold is inacceptable. I needed to hire something in the Bicester area, but had no way to get there before the start of the tenancy. I had a relative who could go and inspect the propertybeforehand, however. They were not willing to accept this, despite me offering full payment and everything. Mr Pashmi was not willing or unable to let me talk to his manager who seem to have made the decision. Very, very poor indeed - ...

As an overseas landlord I would never recommend this company. They never reply to emails, put an additional mark up on invoices for repairs and pocket the difference, never do inspections on the property and feed you loads of bullshit. From day one of the tenants moving in I experienced problem, firstly an incorrect meter reading of the utilities was taken and I ended up with a bill in the thousands, considering i was paying a DD each month whilst the house was empty I was alarmed, in the end...

I Think you may have the wrong agent here? We do not make any charge for check out and there is no charge for registering the deposit. We are registered through and operate the TDS deposit scheme (who are not a free deposit scheme) but we pay the fee. Details of all our charges are listed on each set of property particulars. All tenancies are initially fixed term as with all letting agents. We are members of the ombudsman scheme and have an in house complaints proceedure as well so please feel f....

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. M...

I wish i hadnt bothered renting from them. People had told me they were a nightmare but unfortunatly for me they were the only estate agents tht would rent with housing benefit helping. on the day we moved in we went into our new property and switched on the water to sunddenly find that they was a problem with the overflow tank so we had water gushing out the back garden and water gushing through the loft door. we manged to contact our property manager at the time! who called a plumber out who i...

I rented through them about 8 years ago. One the day of my checkout, we waited two hours for them. They did not show so I called and they told me the inspection would be the next day but I had to go to the office today with my keys as this was my last rental day. They refused to let me in the property for the inspection, then withheld £100 of my £575 deposit for supposed cleaning even though I had receipts for professional cleaning. This was back in the day before deposit protecti...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They are extremely underhand and untrustworthy for both tenants and landlords. They get contractors in to properties when it is not necessary therefore ripping off the landlord and they let tenants move into properties that are not up to the standard they expect when a tenant checks out. I know of others who have had similar bad experiences with them. In fact, I do not personally know of anyone who has been happy with Tobin Jones. Sorry but nothing would make me use this agent again, as a tenant or landlord.

To Tobin Jones in response to your comment of 28/12/2012 - I did complain both times and both times you were not interested. Your 'management' staff at the time (I find it hard to believe you would still be employing those same people) were flippant and unprofessional to say the least. Why would you care though when both times you were not going to make any further money from me?....

This agency took a holding deposit for my application before asking the landlord if I was a suitable tenant, then processed my application. They told me I needed a guarantor so I got my very wealthy grandfather to be a guarantor and we offered 6-12 months rent in advance in cash. They said that wasn't suitable and my grandfather would have to provide proof of income, but they would not include his savings, annuities, bonds or dividends (making up over 70% of his annual income!). They asked for p...

What agent could do to change your mind?
The agent should really have checked the landlord wanted me before taking the holding fee- and it was clear they were never going to accept me, they should have been honest at the outset rather then taking my holding deposit. They shouldn't take a holding deposit and then offer the property to another tenant.

It is absolutely a nightmare to rent a property from Tobin Jones. As soon as I paid my deposit and agent's fee to them, they just simply put me into the 'least important person' list. It is always difficult to arrange something with them. Very unlikely they will contact you for appointment. I have to call them at least three times to get a little job done. I would never deal with them again....

DO NOT RENT THROUGH TOBIN JONES!! I wish we had listened to everyone before moving into one of the property's they manage! They have no idea what they're doing, they tell lies to us and the landlady, plus I know they've charged her for things which they haven't done. I wish we had the money for a deposit to move somewhere else. They are absolutely useless, had no end of problems with them....

In the 2 years of renting my flat I have no positive words to say about Tobin Jones. The impression I get about them is that they're not too bothered about the tenants as much as they're bothered about making money. It's always been difficult to arrange any maintenance in the flat and the last time this was done I'm pretty sure they've cut a few corners that the landlord doesn't know about and this resulted in more maintenance being needed. They even accused me of replacing the shower head which...

Had an agreed upon move in date. Scheduled my moving company and the such....when the date arrived I was told that the previous tenant didn't move out yet (also the landlord) and it would be sometime in the next month. I was forced to find another property... meaning putting down another 200 pound holding deposit. The landlord never moved out.The property was advertised originally as "move in now". Also never answered emails or phone calls....

We had an awful experience with Tobin Jones. Having been with other agent agents in the north and south of the UK I would strongly recommend avoiding Tobin Jones. They were very expensive for the quality of property. Did not reply to emails or phone calls. We had to take them to the ruling tenancy authorities as they also tried to keep our deposit for problems out with our control. We were successful and they were forced to return our whole deposit. A terrible experience from start to end....
