Rented with TG for 6 years and it was a HORRIBLE experience. They are extremely difficult to get hold of, they will try to make you pay for the repairs they (landlord) should be responsible for or just ignore the issues we reported. When we handed ...

Fees kind of average I guess but they will have a set of fees when you move in and then you may get a different list of fees when moving out. Check the paperwork!

Firstly, I would like to say I am very sorry that you are not happy with your experience dealing with Tucker Gardner so far. I can assure you that we take any negative feedback very seriously. I would like to point out that your request to view the property in question was first received on Tuesday 27th June. Unfortunately the sellers were unable to accommodate the times you initially requested, however we were able to confirm an appointment for the 3rd of July, less than a week after the i ...

We are sorry to hear of your frustration regarding the delayed gardening – it was unfortunate that the extremely rapid turn around between your interest shown and the two working day to move in there after meant that the gardening could not be completed in advance. However, at this time of year, many of the gardening firms are showing some delay so we have now instructed an alternative contractor, who plans to attend to the works on Monday. I hope this leaves you feeling more satisfied. K ...

Dear Mr James Milner, Thank you for your comments. I am disappointed that you have not used my feedback as an opportunity to address the issues in you agency and learn from this experience. My message was not triggered by frustration of losing, it is coming out of frustration of participating in an unfair process, like losing a football match with a corrupted referee, you will be frustrated as well. It is absolutely not true that your agent/agency has informed us in writing about the offer ...

Thank you for your review. As we have already sought to explain, the issues you mention were all issues that should be covered by the agents who manage the whole block. Our management was limited to the flat itself so, although we reported your issues each and every time, the block management were not as responsive as we would like. As frustrating for us as it was for you, as we would prefer to get the work completed and allow you to enjoy your tenancy. We were, at your request, not carrying out ...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, all feedback is appreciated. As we have sought to explain, all repair/maintenance work has to be co-ordinated around access to the property, contractor availability and landlord authorisation, all of which can add seemingly unnecessary delays. Please be assured we are working hard to resolve any outstanding issues and my colleague will contact you direct to let you know when each contractor will attend. ...

Condensation can be a very serious issue which is exactly why we give all new tenants guidelines on how to spot and prevent its build up. It's important to ventilate the property, to keep it heated and to avoid creating too much moisture by drying clothes on radiators or not using extractor fans in kitchens and bathrooms. When mould starts to show it should be cleaned off straightaway using an anti fungicide spray. It can be a very frustrating and distressing issue, which is compounded by the fa ...

Change the business model, stop being one of the group of agents responsible for the disgraceful state of property in Cambridge (which now looks like mid-1970s Soviet Poland), stop dealing in lazy absent landlords who don\'t care and remember that come the glorious day when one of us scum reach the dizzy heights of buying a property, guess where we\'re not going to come.

It's always very difficult when we receive multiple applications for a property because we end up with one happy applicant and at least one, if not more, who are disappointed. Ultimately it is the landlord's choice and they will generally choose on the basis of strength of application, rather than any relationship that we may have with another company. Applications via relocation agencies do tend to be quite strong as they are assisted moves, so it is a shame that they were the competition in th ...
