Comment on agent fees
Tenants wear heavy fees - extortionate if any change is needed. E.g. £525 to replace a tenant mid-tenancy. Good for the agent, bad for your tenants who are let feeling vulnerable and hopeless in these situations. Let's hope the government legislation on agents fees comes through sooner rather than later!

What agent could do to change your mind?
Proper feedback and adequate response time are basic for good maintenance, especially when it is about the heating system during the winter period. Here and in other maintenance issues the agency failed.

Hello Max, I'm really sorry to hear you were disappointed with Edmund Cude's service. We usually pride ourselves on being communicative and resolving maintenance issues quickly, but it seems this has not been the case with your property on Northcote Road. I will do my best to find out why your issues were not dealt with sufficiently. I've forwarded your feedback on to the property management team to see if there's anything they can do. Once again we're so sorry for the inconvenience th ...
