Below we have picked out some comments made by a few of the students, usually by email or text. Hopefully this will give you a “flavour” of the relationship we have with them, as Landlords.
As you will see, we like to be informal, but at the same time professional. We ensure that the equipment and facilities in each house are maintained, and we have a policy of replacing old with new, not second-hand. The students appreciate this and in return will better look after furniture and appliances, etc. As our saying goes, “You look after our house, and we’ll look after you”.
Thanks, you too Alan. You’ve been a great landlord.Tom C.

Hi Alan, Thanks for working so hard to fix everything it is extremely appreciated.Debbie W.
Thanks for being ok with me leaving moving out until the 8th it makes it much easier to get my stuff together. Im sure the house will be in good condition when you get there, might be worth sending an email in advance though so they can get the place in order. I heard some suspicious rumours the other day that they were planning a tidy up but i dont know how true they were?!!
Anyway, thanks again, im sure i’ll see you around the 8th.
All the best alan! kev.
I don’t know if the girls have already been in contact but it seems that our washer has now packed it in completely. I did a load this morning (20/03/05) but when Sara tried to wash her work stuff nothing happened. I think the door lock-seel system no longer works therefore the washing machine does not start. As it is Easter there won’t be many of us around – Sara is at work all day, Becca is going home on tuesday, Jo is already away and I will be away Monday-Friday. That means the easiest option may be for you to let yourself in during the week or wait till next weekend as I will be around (although I don’t think you’ll want to work Easter weekend.) Sara is currently using the new machine you installed next door and I think that may suffice for the moment but will not work in the long run. Thanks for the new microwave – it works a treat. If I don’t see you before easter, have a good one. Anika L.
Just a quick e-mail to let you know that everyone in Ashford Street has now had their student loans paid into their respective accounts. So feel free to cash any cheques we already owe you. Thanks for your patience and hope to see you soon. Mike H.
Cheers Sam V.
cheers mate! Kevin R.
