Grossly overcharge for shoddy work
Charge for work that tenants haven't authorised with no evidence it has been completed
Suspiciously 'tender' work out to be somehow always taken on by the same people 'Hugh Scott and Builders'
Commission work to be done such as retiling, 'workman' leaves area a mess, then charge you again for someone else to come and clean up the mess he should have dealt with himself
Very high insurance rates, when questioned about them offer no detail apart from 'that they are the best prices available' highly unlikely
Increase rates without no improvement in quality whatsoever
With a building background, I can say with certainty that we are being overcharged for poor workmanship
Basically paying about £350 a quarter for genuinely absolutely NOTHING, except the stairs getting a wipedown
H&P - a licence to print money
