1.Completely no after service. The agent have totally not responded to our email regarding maintenance, sometimes(very occasional) they spent like 7 days for replying us but with completely no help!!! After we paid the rent (which is very expensive and deserves a much much better service) and the deposits;
2. The maintenance team is completely rubbish. We think the property have some kind of electric voltage problems that caused us to spend lots of money on just buying new light bulbs and one of the original bulb has exploded in the bedroom!!! We have changed almost all the bulbs in the property, some of them even more than once. The important thing is when we report this to the maintenance team they do not think that is a problem at all and told us just replace the bulbs. After we have chasing them like 6 month they promised to send an engineer to check the voltage but never showed up!!!
3.The agent has cheated us on the bills we will have when we see the property. We spend 2500 pounds on the utilities during 9 month. They told us the bills will be 100 pounds per month but look what we paid!! We seriously doubt that we have shared the bill with the restaurant downstairs and when we came up with the agent about this they said they have announced the utility providers to separate the pipes but have no respond. I don\'t think that will be the responsibility of ours.
4.The maintenance team have played us with the extractor in the kitchen. In fact it just the socket behind the extractor that is not working but they said we broke the extractor and we have to pay for the new one which is 250 pounds plus VAT. How can a well-trained maintenance team not able to detect what the real problem is but to cheat us for money!! At christmas, the boiler in the house has broken down. We have called the maintenance team and they said they will send an emergency engineer to look at this rightaway. After few hours, the maintenance called off the engineer just because the landlord and his parents said they are coming by for a look of the property that arranged earlier. In the end as you can see, the landlord did not solve the problem while his \'little sightseeing in the property with parents\' and we have suffered 3 days of no heating and hot water until the christmas bank holiday is over. In this point I think the agent is trying to avoid the emergency call out fee of the engineer and has blow us off with some nonsense reasons.
In conclusion, the maintenance team just awful and the attitude is really unbearable. We are overseas students and this is the first time we rent a property in UK. This agent, Edmund Cude, thought that they can play tricks on us and make some benefit themselves and they think we are soft and don\'t know how this works in here so they can do whatever they want. We spent whole a lot of money on this property because of their in-expertise. Please for you own good do not trust Edmund Cude and do not rent a property through them. It will be the worst experience in your life.
