- poor experience/communication: often ignored emails and calls and any replies very combatative. Has hounded for early rent and signing of next tenancy etc.
- questionable/dodgy actions: answers by different names on the phone! (rang alarm bells)
- low competence: had typos and mistakes in a contract, which were then interpreted to his advantage e.g. rent due date each month which we were then told to ignore and pay earlier than stated...

Overall impression: as a student you will likely have enough to worry about. The added stress would not be worth it even if rent was half the price that it is in my opinion, and you will end up spending a lot of time being chased or trying to chase.

Harminder Bilkhu Singh. Rem this name and avoid! This landlord was listed as one of the landlords recommended by the student union of Uni of Warwick. However he turned out to be a rogue landlord which caused alot of problems for us! So please scoot far away from the landlord named HARMINDER BILKHU SINGH. He may appear all nice in the beginning but seriously don't be duped by that.

Did not provide gas, electric certificates, or the deposit certificate. When we triedto get him to provide us the gas certificate through the council, turned out he had none and couldn't get one for that boiler. He replaced the boiler with an electric boiler which does not heat up the water in the taps anymore rendering the bath useless.

He also tried to persuade us to sign a contract on top of ours with the other flat in the house saying we would have had to pay council tax otherwise (we are students). This turned out to be a lie, which he tried to play to make us responsible for any missed payments of our neighbours should they not pay.

Passive aggressive attitude and multiple threats were made towards us throughout our time there. He threatened to evict us as a result of us contacting the council and threatened us with few hundred pound fees for replacing a 30x10cm piece of glass in the door. His inventory contained things not actually located in the apartment, and things which were clearly worn have been stated as new. Our inventory comments were ignored completely. We do not know if we will get our deposit back. We also never received the keys to the garden to get into it from the back of the house, even though we let him know we don't have them.

The contract is awfully one sided and he makes a lot of profit from making the place bills included. He made bills capped at 100 pounds per month, except that within that 100 he capped gas and electricity at 40 pounds, so we were paying 60 pounds for WiFi and water, both shared with the neighbours, and then 40 was never enough in winter months so we had to pay extra on top of the hundred by 20 to 40 pounds per month, even though we were still waking up to 1 degree in our house.
