The house was in good condition when we moved in. The cupboards were lined with disposable paper to make keeping them clean much easier. Whenever we had a problem, they were quick to respond to our calls and quick to drop by and sort it out. Even when I locked myself out of the room, they kindly told me where the spare key was rather than make me pay to get back into the room. At 97 Scorer Street, the bottom and bigger bedrooms do get extremely cold at night which meant we went over the allocated heating cost. But the rent wasn't expensive and we got no deductions for cleaning. One of our neightbours would often put our bins out and bring them in for us, while the other one was noisy at inconvenient times. But overall, it was a worth while student house.
Katherine and Chris were both amazing landlords! I was an international student and finding a place in another country is hard as it is with all the fraud that goes on, and to make things worse I didn't have much time before my departure. Katherine and Chris were really friendly from the get go and made the process so simple which was a life saver! They are really student oriented making dealing with problems in the house (which was basically none) super easy and quick!

I would give 3 reviews of 5 stars each. I think that's reasonable as they are three different contracts, but Google will not let me.
I hear many students talk about the difficulties they have with other landlords. Like not responding to emails or a problem going on for many weeks. Sometimes not being addressed at all. Also, there have been situations where other landlords will hassle you, over petty disagreements or turn up unannounced. Sometimes, you find yourself in a situation where the first impression you are given is excellent and then standards decline.
I can confidently say that this is certainly not the case with Jones Student Property:
- All issues were solved as soon as possible
- Communication was always efficient and consistent
- Standards were always consistent
- Privacy was always respected
- There has never been a conflict of any kind
- I had a safe, secure space to peacefully carry out my studies
- All places were always in range of the city centre should I want to do something other than study
- All bills are included, which I understand many people do, but the allowance is so reasonable that I have never, EVER gone over it.
- Internet speeds are incredible. Honestly.
- One more thing, we had no issues with damp or mould. Our flat was treated with special material within the walls to combat it. This, to me, is a massive plus. This was something the landlords went out of their way to do. Because they care.
When going with Jones Student Property, you can honestly just rely on the fact that you have a stable living situation and nothing can get in the way of you life. Socially of academically.
2018 Review: Honestly, the best landlords you could ever hope for! They are very quick to respond to any problems and are also very organised. The house is very clean and well-maintained. I would highly recommend 🙂 🏠10/10
2019 Review - Once again, the best landlords you could ever hope for! The house we stayed at for 3rd year felt homely and cozy. The landlords are very friendly, supportive and quick to respond. I highly recommend them!
Great landlords. They are always quick to respond and always sort out any problems in a timely manner. I would highly recommend them 🙂
Friendly and helpful landlords who are very responsive to any issues or information I needed to know about (e.g. payments and fire alarm testing).
The house was in great condition.
Very supportive and quick response if reported issues lovely family run business everyone friendly and active in email reminders for rent and maintain checks
House clean and tidy when arrived and supported with any issues
Caroline and Chris were both lovely. Any small issues we ever had were resolved within a day, much better service than the commercial student housing agencies within the area. Would recommend them highly for anyone who's going into university.
I have just completed a year of tenancy with Jones Student Property and, due to their exceptional service, will be staying with them for another year. Chris and Caroline were extremely friendly and helpful, as well as incredibly quick to respond to any problems that arose. They made one of the most stressful parts of student life (finding accommodation) into a very easy and pain-free process, of which I am incredibly grateful for. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of student housing.
Lived in one of their properties August ‘17 to June ‘18. Lovely house, all the essentials, ie cleaning products and hoover, left in the house for us. Landlord (Chris) was happy to come out with any issues, quickly and without complaint, wether it was light bulb issues or washing machine broken down. Highly recommended to all students thanks Chris and Caroline!! ☺️
Both Chris and Caroline have been superb landlords. Very kind and helpful and if we had any problems with the house they would sort it quicker than any other landlord/estate agent that I have stayed with before.Cant recommend highly enough!
Very kind and supportive landlords. The house is always in excellent condition with new, high quality furnitures. The rent is reasonable. I must say 44 Dixon str house is the best house in Lincoln city.Overall, Good value of money.
Superb landlord’s, would highly recommend. Always quick to resolve any problems and a friendly pair of faces.
Rented student houses from Chris and Caroline for 3 years. Houses have always been in excellent condition. Any maintenance was always sorted quickly. Excellent prices for the size of the rooms and facilities in the house (tumble dryer, smart tv etc.). Renting from the Jones has enhanced my student experience at Lincoln, taking all of the hassle out of renting. I would highly recommend!🎓🏠
The best landlords you could ever hope for!There is not a single thing I could critique Caroline or Chris on; the property was in an excellent condition when we moved in and any issues we had throughout the tenancy they sorted out unbelievably quickly every single time. Comparing with friends’ houses and landlords in Lincoln, I am confident in saying that Jones Student Property is the best option.
I would highly recommend Jones' Student Property. My house accommodation (49 Nelthorpe) was clean, well-maintained and an easy 10 minute walk to Uni. If there were any problems with the house, I could quickly get in contact with the landlords and they would quickly resolve the problems which is excellent. Most importantly, the Landlords were lovely and friendly.
Such a great experience living here for 10 months
Supportive landlord, clean house, cosy living room. I had 10 comfortable and unforgettable months living in the house. Highly recommended 👍
Excellent Landlords and letting agents. Have absolutely no regrets. Property was excellent and well maintained. Any problems we could get hold of them quickly and they'd help us resolve equally quick. The property (49 Nelthorpe) was an easy walk to the uni. Exemplary. Would highly recommend. Both really nice friendly people.
I started my stay with Jones Student Properties in my second year and enjoyed it so much I moved to 2 of their other properties for my third year and masters as well. Great landlords - everything was resolved really quickly, from maintenance issues to student finance hiccups delaying rent payments or even asking if we could have a dining table! Chris and Caroline were so easy to approach and you knew everything would be dealt with in a professional manner and in a timely manner no matter how silly it seemed. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a student property in Lincoln and if I was ever a student again I definitely know where I would be looking to live!
I spent my second year of university in this house. Throughout the year there was near no stress with the house. Any problem that arose in the house was solved within a couple of days. As landlords they do not intrude on the house and if they do pop round they always let you know that they are coming round. They were very reasonable about rent, in my case mine came through a bit late and no problems paying the money bit late once the money arrived. The actual house itself was great to live in compared with university Campus. Overall, a great experience.
I have stayed at a residence of Jones student property for the last 2 years of my residency at the University of Lincoln. I would just like to write this review to advise to anyone looking for accommodation in Lincoln, that these are the landlords to go for. The houses they offer for the prices they offer are very good value, me and my flat mates never struggled for space in the kitchen. Much room is provided in terms of cupboards and fridges.Any problem and every problem we had (almost none) they dealt with as quickly as they could. The areas in which my house was located in particular was in a great location and only a 5 minute walk form the city centre. What I loved is that they take the money from you AFTER you receive your student finance which means you never get into any predicaments about paying for rent.Would recommend highly.
No tengo palabras para describir lo encantadores que son Christopher y Caroline. Llegue a Inglaterra con un idioma malisimo, pero ellos tuvieron toda la paciencia del mundo para hacerse entender. Me han ayudado en todo lo que he necesitado, incluso vinieron a Lincoln a verme solo por que había tenido problemas con mis compañeros. Tiene la casa muy cuidada, si algo se rompe lo arreglan. Para los que venimos de otros países es difícil saber donde te estás metiendo, yo quede muy contenta con los servicios prestados. 100% recomendables.
As the parent of a student who has just renewed his second year tenancy with Jones Student Property, i thought it may be helpful and reassuring for other parents of students to read a review from a parents perspective.Having previously had two other student sons undertake numerous student rentals both in Lincoln and in other parts of the country, I can only say that Chris and Caroline have been absolutely outstanding landlords in comparison to the other larger student accommodation companies. I have had to sit back and watch these companies speak down to students, charge extortionate arrangement fees, ignore property issues when reported, and unacceptably retain deposits on exit of the properties.Chris and Caroline treat their student occupants with the respect these young people deserve. They respond to all issues and queries, even to the point that when my son was taking his tenancy out Caroline took the time to call me personally and go over the financial side of the contract. I just found her manner and approachability extremely reassuring and she has always been true to her word. Jones Student Property is a refreshing change to the student rental market!!
I am entering my second year in the tenancy of a Jones Student Property. The landlords are by far superior to dealing with a student property company e.g Lighthouse. The relationship that Chris and Caroline have with their tenants is very positive, we receive help whenever we need it and are always greeted with smiles and friendliness. Dealing with Jones Student Property is easy and straightforward, with an applied common sense approach to the realities of student living and finance, I have found my time in their charming property extremely positive.
I cannot praise Jones student Property enough for a fantastic stay in one of their Lincoln properties. I have enjoyed staying in their property so much that I have extended my contract for another year. They are honestly the best landlords I have experienced in my lifetime of renting properties; they are easy to contact, reliable and extremely responsive to all issues we have had. During our stay last year, our washing machine broke and within 2 days a new one was ordered and fitted. I also asked to have a new mattress and they replaced that with a new one within 24 hours. Not only do they provide an excellent service but they gave us other advice which helped us to maintain and use the items provided properly and efficiently. There needs to be more landlords like them. I cannot reccommend them enough!
Chris and Caroline where really good landlords. If we ever had a problem, (even down to changing the lightbulbs!) they would respond immedietly! Lovely house to stay in for our final year of university and i would defintley reccomend. Thank you
I've stayed at one of the Jones Student Property's houses for a year now and have nothing but praise for them. The landlords were so friendly and always willing to help in anyway they could, even coming round on the weekend to help with the boiler! The house itself was kept in lovely condition and I'm happy to say I will be living there again next year as well. So thank you for a lovely year
Jones Student Property is a wonderful family owned business, they were very responsive to any problems we had and were very easy to communicate with. We were very lucky to have had landlords that really did care about their tenants and did everything they could to ensure we had a relaxing year without any worries.
Great landlords, they were always on hand to help and answer any questions or queries. Really enjoyed my stay at one of their properties. Very reasonably priced too, considering how close we were to the Uni.
Can't recommend Jones Student Property enough, they have been great landlords for the past two years, always quick to respond with any issues you have and are more than fair to their tenants, a very different experience to some of the horror stories you hear from other student renters. The property itself was well maintained and any changes were communicated to us well in advance. All around, very lovely and helpful landlords.
What a fabulous two years we have had living in Lincoln with Jones Student Properties. You could not ask for better landlords. Everything was so easy from the very beginning, until the end of the tenancy. If ever there were any problems (which was rare- and only ever minor!!!), Chris and Caroline would come the same day and get it sorted. If you're looking for hardworking, dedicated and honest landlords look no further!
Excellent landlords. I am so happy with them and with my tenancy. They were so helpful and nice with us. If you have any problem, they will help you as soon as they can which normally is in the same day or the next. If I started again in Lincoln, I would choose them again definitely!
I stayed in one of their properties last year, and received a friendly and professional service. The accommodation was clean, well maintained and very reasonably priced. They were extremely helpful and attentive, and made me feel incredibly looked after. I felt that my deposit was completely safe, and the communication between myself and the landlords was always clear and positive. I have now moved away from the area, but if I rented in Lincoln again I would definitely use their services.
Great, friendly landlords. Great communication, always more than happy to help!
The terms of my contract and the expectations for both me and the landlords was made really clear throughout my tenancy, which has not always been the case in other properties I've rented. The house was clean when I got it, the few problems we had throughout the year (dead strip lighting bulb etc) were sorted out very quickly and the landlords themselves were helpful and accommodating (no pun intended).Would definitely recommend
Really good Landlords, so helpful and lovely house to live in! I would definitely recommend them for accommodation.
The property was great, and most importantly, so we're the landlords. Whenever there was an issue or we needed something from them, they responded and acted quickly. Would definitely recommend them and their properties to anybody. Brilliant.
Wonderful and friendly landlords who are always quick to respond and help with any issues. The accommodation is safe, nicely decorated, reasonably priced and allows you to make it feel like a home. I would 100% recommend Jones to any students at Lincoln.
Excellent landlords - the property was very well maintained and any problems that we encountered were solved immediately. Everything from repairs to rent payments was handled very well and generously. Would wholeheartedly reccomend to anybody studying at either Lincoln University or Bishop Grosseteste University due to its central location and easy walking distances to both.
Excellent landlords who are always willing to help. Didn't have to wait more than 48 hours for assistance which was usually the same day if it was something important. Excellent properties at reasonable prices. Far more friendlier than other local alteratives for sure!
Both lovely people, great landlords, great house. Couldn't ask for more!
Excellent property and brilliant landlords. The property was fantastic especially for students as it is close to the city center and the university itself, and is also located in a quiet area. If any problem arises the response is extremely prompt and always very helpful. Overall A++ would definitely recommend.
Absolute perfect landlords. If there's any problems they come out as soon as possible and they are extremely helpful. Property was lovely, perfect place for students as it's close to both town and the university, nice and spacious. Would recommend 10/10
