Messrs Olivia Trading Ltd, Brighton and Hove

Reviewed 11 July 2023
This studio is a new build. The materials used are of high quality. The workmanship is very poor and it’s as if the builder gave up properly finishing the jobs off. Leaving holes and gaps in the flooring.

The shower stall is really small and I bang into it when having a shower.
The shower air con doesn’t work properly for the the space so paint has already started peeling off on the ceiling where condensation accumulates.
The shower plug stinks to high heaven if you don’t thoroughly wash it out each and every time you shower.

The plumbing in the kitchen had to be replaced due to three leaks occurring at the start of my Yemen at a year ago.

The electricity box wasn’t wired properly and kept of tripping due to an overloaded fuse box that I eventually got sorted due to having to call out The National power cut team out of hours when the electricity failed after 5pm on a Friday night.

The EPC in this studio is bad due to the draughts, lack of insulation and also because the radiators are electrical and ultra sensitive to any temperature/wind changes within this space.

The landlord just attempted to raise my rent from £795 to £955 and when I wrote back to ask if they might please delay, they served me a section 21 notice to quit.

Baring in mind I moved here a year ago, having been served another section 21 notice from my previous landlord of 9 years and therefore am still financially recovering from that entire year of rental grief. Therefore they were fully aware of my finances and the fact I’d be unable to jump as high as they’re asking me to.

Also the studio windows are at bus height level…. which is quite fun for an exhibitionist and not so much so if you happen to love your privacy.
