Hello Chiachi Lai.

Thank you for providing a review of tenancy that Gareth James arranged between you and the Landlord of the rental property.

Firstly, may I say how surprised and sorry I am that you feel your experience with our Property Management team wasn't as positive as expected. I have reviewed the points you have made with the Property Management team and we are all concerned that we didn't articulate to you, as clearly as we might have done, what our remit and our ability to expedite issue resolution is, as a Letting Agent (as opposed to the Landlord) and what we can actually do on your behalf, as Tenants.

If we failed to make this clear at the beginning of and during the tenancy, I can only apologise. Feedback like yours is always massively appreciated as it makes us even more mindful of a tenant's expectations. I'm more than happy to give you a call at a convenient time to discuss the points you raised in more detail and answer any questions you may have. It might also be something that would be helpful to you, particularly if you rent again in the future.

Many thanks, Zohra Huda – Marketing, Gareth James Property
