Hi , my comment references Rebecca Stewart who manages my property. I just wanted to express my thanks that she is quite proactive and helpful particularly in recommending a course of action when something has happened or needs to be dealt with. On her initiative she also sourced for competitive quotes for workman to undertake assorted repair works at my unit when I expressed surprise at how expensive the rectifications seemed to be. Hopefully I ll be able to save a few hundred quid ! Thanks Reb ...

To continue: We have now been out of the property for over three months and the property manager hasn't managed to return our deposit. She suggested disputing it which has further dragged out the process since she goes weeks without responding to e-mails. AVOID THIS PLACE!!
