We are very sad to receive this review. Ultimately the choice of tenants is determined by the landlords and in this case the landlords chose a foreign couple without children. There was never a question raised regarding race or skin colour as it is irrelevant in agreeing a tenancy. We are sorry that this property was unsuccessful for you and wish you success with your property search. ...
