Thank you for your review, however on this occasion I do feel the need to defend our business as I do not believe we have done anything incorrectly. I will reply in order of the points you have raised. In regards to the communal fire alarm, in all developments this is monitored and maintained by the block management company. As an estate agent, we have no control over this communal issue and therefore the responsibility lands with the management company, details of which can be found in and ...
