I rent a property from Core for around 18 months now and it seems that they are least bothered with the tenants. The only reason why they will contact you if your rent has been delayed. I have had issues with my Hoover for over 3 weeks now, the light at the close has fused and the main close door\'s lock is broken. I contacted Core properties 3 weeks back and I am still waiting for things to be sorted out. I have emailed, no response recd. I have called up on many occassions and I have always been told that Jane, the contact person, is either busy in a meeting or away from her desk. Every time I contact I am told that someone will call me back but unfortunately, it seems that the company is trying to save money on telephone calls. I dont know if my issues will be resolved or not, but if you are reading this article beware of Core Properties as receiving maintainance service from them is next to impossible.

Core Property Management would like to respond to this complaint in detail.

Firstly, Mr Passary.

Core Property Management has operated for just under 5 years, in all of this time we have never received any issues that have not been dealt with promptly or needed any further action. we have never in all of our time operating had any negative criticism. We welcome all feedback and always look to improve on the quality of our service. Please if you have time check all records in relation to our company via companies House , Glasgow Sheriff Court or any other creditable avenue that readers wish to peruse.

Mr. Passary has a valid complaint that his hoover broke and called the branch to inform us of the situation. I am happy to say that a new hoover has been supplied and delivered.

Mr. Passary failed to mention that we provide a rent collection only service. He has the landlord details and the agreement is that the landlord looks after all repairs. Core Property has no authorisation to act on behalf of the landlord, we can certainly take all the points raised to the landlord. In all instances we have an audit trail relating to all conversations between tenant, agent and landlord that we would be happy to submit should you require.

Mr. Passary states that there has been no communication from ourselves to him in relation to these matters ( while we understand Mr. Passary's frustration ) we have evidence to the country , a log of conversation backwards and forwards relation to concerns with both himself and his landlord.

Mr. Passary stated that the outside landing light has gone out and that the lock on the entrance door does not work. We have also highlighted this to the landlord, the landlord has advised that they have spoken to their tenant and will keep them up to date with any repairs that they are caring out. ( Mr. Passary failed to mention this in his posting to you. The block is self-factored, we understandably cannot beheld account for any issues externally to Mr. Passary's property. As we have stated earlier, we have only a rent collection contract with the landlord, Mr. Passary has been in contact with them over the external issues which have also been omitted from this posting.

Mr. Passary is incorrect in his final analysis stating that you will not receive any maintenance from us . We offer a 1hr 3 hr or 24hr callout service depending on the nature and severity of the issues *please note that we would not state a broken hoover as an emergency call out (as Mr. Passary stated to us.) This service is available to the all of our tenants signed up to our fully managed service. We cannot send contractors out to tenants under a let only or rent collection service. We make all our tenants aware of this at viewings and at signing of the lease.

In conclusion, Mr. Passary does have a genuine complaint, unfortunately we feel it has been directed to the wrong person, the issue has now been rectified and Core Property Management has acted within the terms and conditions of the lease. Mr. Passary has understandably felt aggrieved and frustrated to the point of posting a review on this site. We however feel it is unjustified and would like the comments removed immediately.
