Renting this time has been an awful experience.
When we took over the apartment, there were a number of repairs that should have been done prior to our occupation. In addition, the cleaning that had been done following the prior tenant's departure was very bad. The oven, for example, is a disgrace, as are some of the showers. This will hopefully be taken care of next week, at our request, but this should have been done before, particularly for a property that rents at £1600 per month.
Bassetts are a complete shambles and simply nobody takes ownership of anything and you get sent round and round.
