"My family and I have just secured a rental property through Living Property, Beccles and would very much like to express our thanks and gratitude for the professional and courteous manner in which Paula, Kim and Cassy from Living Property made it a very positive and stress free experience. Staff were on hand to answer any questions before and after we signed the tenancy with quick responses and excellent advice. We would not hesitate to recommend Living Property to anybody wanting to rent or to those looking to rent out their properties. They definitely provide a very high quality service with both parties interests at heart."
