Landlord review for Ian Spedding, Carlisle

Landlord rating: 1
Terrible landlord, takes several days to respond to messages, then doesn't usually fix the problem. When he does send someone around the fix the problem, we get no prior warning that they're showing up resulting in seemingly random people walking around the house that we weren't aware of. Moves people in without any warning, and enters the property without any warning. Has made both racist and sexist comments, sometimes towards tenants.

Property review for 12 Scotland Road, Stanwix Houghton, Carlisle

Property rating: 2
Very dated property, would be lovely if the landlord put in the work to maintain it. The house was dirty upon my moving in day. Most of the appliances are quite old and don't work as they should. The boiler should have been replaced years ago as told to us by a repair man, we have encountered numerous problems with this. The electrics are prone to tripping often which in turn affects the kitchen fridges, spoiling any food in them.
Advertised as an 8 bedroom house as a way for the landlord to cram as many people into the house as possible. There are not enough facilities to provide for 8 people, and one ofthe so called "bedrooms" is a room with no windows. Living area consists of a small conservatory, not really adequate for more than 4 people at a time.

Area review for Stanwix Houghton, Carlisle

Area rating: 9
House is in a good area, pub close by as well as a small sainsburys and newsagents, city centre is about a 20 minutes walk. However, unless the landlord makes massive changes to the way he behaves towards tenants and maintains the house its not worth the hassle of living here.
