Requires advanced rent and very high fees in comparison to other agencies such as Posh Pads. Do little to nothing to deserve this fee.

In response your comments are completely unfair, you are refering to a property owned by our company. As you are well aware the property has been refurbished to an extremely high standard for your occupation. Some £60,000 was spent on renovations ready for you to move in. The problems encountered in planning are related to new legislation introduced after your reservation. Article 4 was introduced into planning legislation on March 23rd some months after you signed up for the property. This ...

To improve they need to vet there landlords better, They need to improve there communication and also they need to improve there customer service. When its your job to deal with the public (or anyone) you have to have brilliant customer service skills. They dont.
