1. Think Carefully!

By donaldalan - stayed here from 6th January 2014 to 4th August 2017

The flat has character and we had happy times there. However, there are issues with damp (ask to look behind the washing machine) and the electrics often tripped when we had more than one appliance on in the kitchen. The living room is pleasant and gets a lot of sun but the other rooms are dark.

The landlords began the tenancy by being very friendly and helpful. However they were very slow to address any issues we raised, e.g. not fixing the electrics and a broken fence which meant we couldn't use the garden. They raised the rent by more than 10% when I was eight months pregnant and when we queried it told us it wasn't a negotiation. When we moved out they attempted to withold our entire deposit; we took the case to arbitration and have so far recouped 70%. Think carefully before renting from these people!

The street is a lovely one, but there are plenty of other flats available there.
