"Living property are now the only letting agent I will use within the Waveney area. Their service is exemplary and far exceeds that experienced with "lesser" letting agents. They are always polite, courteous and professional and have always been a pleasure to deal with. When it comes to renting, the letting agent is your first point of contact with any problems such as water leaks, and this is usually when the problems start. With Living Property, one phone call in the evening of a bank holiday weekend and the problem was fixed within the hour. I would highly recommend anybody to use them."
