£30 per quarter is fine if they do anything for their money. It's a rip off with MacFie because they do nothing. They struggle to reply to emails, get invoices correct or even get quotes for work required on the building.

The reviews here are depressingly familiar, echoing my own experience of living in a tenement building "managed" by MacFie & Co. For some years now, all attempts to get common repairs and close maintenance sorted have been stalled by MacFie's inability to gather funds and/or ...

Until we sacked them in 2012 MacFie and Co had been the factor of our city centre building since at least 1988. In those 25 years, despite an annual income of thousands of pounds from residents of our building for 'admin fees' and minor repairs no-one could locate, ...

Given that we only managed one property in the G5 area, I suspect this refers to the property which was the subject of a more recent posting by Graham Watson, to whom I have replied. I would apply that response here. ...

MacFie & Co are not only incompetent, they intimidate and threaten court action, seek to charge for work that is never completed, overcharge for horrendously poor quality work that is, and enforce ridiculous maintenance schedules designed purely to line their own and their chosen contractors' pockets. ...
