Landlord review for Maureen Roscoe, Salford

Landlord rating: 3
While the landlord was friendly and seemed genuinely interested in her tenants when it came to dealing with actual problems she didn't want to take responsibility as a landlord. I had belongings stolen, thrown out, and smashed by other tenants and despite both myself and my guarantor raising a complaint with her she refused to follow up the anti-social behaviour clause of the contract. Also she sold a joint tenancy where some tenants had bills all inclusive but another tenant had it in their contract that they had to be responsible for the energy bill on the house's behalf - so when that tenant ended their contract and left she refused to accept liability for energy charges the all inclusive tenants had racked up, which is potentially illegal and has the likelihood of allowing other tenants to rack up unlimited debts in another tenants name and damaging that tenants credit rating.

Property review for 276 Gerald Road, Higher Broughton, Salford

Property rating: 8
The bedrooms were average size, enough for double beds plus study desk. The whole house was rented furnished, communal areas were kitted out with TV, pans, plates, utensils, etc. Everything was presented cleanly and in a neat, cosy way. Bathroom was nicely done but has a major issue of wet rot with the floor gradually caving in, plus some of the electrical wiring of lights was dodgy so the lightings wouldn't come on properly.

Area review for Higher Broughton, Salford

Area rating: 6
As a student area the neighborhood has clearly had investment from student housing and shops like Spar and Subway but cross a bridge in any direction and you'll hit deprived and crime ridden parts of the city. Police sirens are frequent at all hours, as are fights kicking off in the street. Surrounding neighbourhoods are frequently in the local and national news for serious crime, and the occasional body washes up in the Irwell.
