They now want £2,900 with legal fees, interest, etc...and like I say we are a freehold townhouse. We asked for a breakdown on thei ...

I have had OM service my property for 7 years and they have made my life hell. I am still waiting for a credit from Nov 2011, they advised me in January 2014 that they were in error and would, took me over 2 years to get that far, and many e-mails later and another agreement that they would pay it I am still waiting. Out Estate Manager is the most obnoxious, rude, arrogant man I have met who refuses to return calls. I cannot sell my property as the fee's are £150.00 per month, this is on fla ...
