On viewing the property I was assured flat will be cleaned and repainted and the bed will be changed.
There was a lot of problems signing the contract and nearly all my live documentation was needed!!! I mean bank statements from 2 banks, both saving accounts!!! Reference from previous landlords. It still was not good enough so they asked for 2 months deposit!!!! (I still did not receive the Deposit ID for DPS)
Contract was written but until the documentation was not ready the key was not provided. They set the beginning of the contract 4 DAYS BEFORE the key to the property was issued!!!
Property was not hoovered upon arrival, bed was not changed, the wardrobe falling apart, carpets in scandalous condition; later on more problems i.e. cockroaches, mice, noise from the main street- no double glazing, water continuously leaking from the tap.
Some unknown people knocking at the door, ringing intercom, feeling of lack of safety and support kicked in so I decided to change the key to the doors.
Now this is the best part!!!
Once they tried accessing the property with an hour notice by email, then I receive another email an hour later saying ,, the key to the property was changed without our permission, we need urgent access to you property!!!\'\' THEY TRIED TO ACCESS THE PROPERTY AND DID NOT SEE ANYTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT IT!!!
PS. they charge …Â102 for signing and renewal of the contract.
