“Terrible in every way....”

Terrible in every way, I took the full management option, what a mistake, I jave had 6 different property managers in little over a year, all terrible, they didnt respond to the tennant's notification of a leak for weeks, the Tennant eventually got in touch with me and then I had to phone pbricks who once again didnt respond so I made a 340 mile round
They didnt do the 6 monthly inspection, then after 5 months of emails and phone calls they just resent the 1st inspection report.
Now rhey have informed the local council a water authority that the tenants have moved out ??? Leaving me and the tennant's to sort it and saying they havent sent anything, it states on the demands that it is from information supplied by Pbricks, basically they breach their own contract then want £600 of you when you tell them you dont want them looking after your investment.
Shocking, I am taking legal action against then, trust me they may start off o.k but they soon make up for that. BE WARNED.
