What is the structure of our property reviews process?
Our property review consists of 14 multiple choice questions. These questions are designed after meticulous research about property maintenance issues faced by tenants in the UK. Depending on how you answered each question the rental property gets a score out of 10.
The score is a part of your property review. You can also enter comments and upload pictures to support your property review. The entire process takes about 90 seconds to 10 minutes depending on amount of text you wish to write. Your property review once submitted stays online helping other tenants to make informed property decisions.
