From a tenant perspective Howsy is a horrible company. They have been terrible at managing repairs (it took them 6 months to fix a washing machine) but the worse was how they dealt with the deposit. First they flagged several items as damages which were already ...

Zeus International Ltd, is nothing to do with Howsy other than we stupidly tried to work with them for repair and compliance jobs. Howsy still owe Zeus money for jobs completed for them, where on their website does it refer to our name as managing their properties? Also Zeus International Ltd is registered under company number 13125111 and is not dissolved. Thank you ...

Oh you're very misinformed. Being a tenant in hell with howsy, I can't even behind to tell you how difficult it's been to even get something fixed or a contractor out. I even entered the property and didn't have a functioning toilet! No one knows what their are doing there. They are sound like the same robots! I have had to do their jobs so many times I should be getting paid. Absolutely ridiculous, I'll never be using them again, been truly horrific. I am now hassled everyday by a different rob ...
