"I have rented two properties from Living Property, 1 commercial and 1 family home. I have found them to be highly professional in their management of these properties. They have been more than fair in all their dealings with me and do everything possible to help with any problems. One example was over a New Year bank holiday weekend our central heating failed, Kim immediately offered to come out with heaters and arranged for an emergency heating engineer to attend the next day, fantastic service. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them whether your a landlord or tenant. MT, Beccles. "
