Do not attempt to try and use the rent right website in order to get a quick and easy find especially for requirements regarding pets!

I used this in the hopes I would get properties accepting a small dog. When I got properties claiming to match my needs and called up in Roman's no one knew anything regarding the properties and told me the properties in question did not accept pets. Total waste of my time when OT could have been used more wisely as I am in a serious hurry to move out! Utter joke! Im from London clearly estate agents in London are alot more efficient than in reading !!!

That is because they do not respect their tenants. My house was offered on the market without me knowing. The first notice I had was a message saying that they had booked viewings without having ever asked me when it was a good time to bring strangers to a house for which I was gonna pay full price until the last day. Totally abusive!! should not even be legal. ...
