Words from clients of Dav Kumar and North Lodge Housing
“I have visited the North Lodge Housing offices four times since October 2007. I have found the staff pleasant and courteous. … I had paid another company funds to refurbish or decorate those properties that required work, and Dav Kumar was kind enough to inspect them all. … By around September last year, all bar three were let, and those three required extensive additional work (damp and roof repairs). I compared North Lodge Housing’s quotes with others I had sought, and asked them to proceed with works as per their quotations. I experienced no problems, and no delays. In January 2008, I had to take one tenant to court, and Dav Kumar prepared all the papers and attended with me (no charge from North Lodge Housing).
“As 2008 has progressed, all our properties have been let, and NORTH LODGE HOUSING has always provided proactive communication regarding any issues with tenants or properties. I have been grateful for this good level of service, and continue to work with NORTH LODGE HOUSING as good partners in business.”
“Dav Kumar and North Lodge Housing have managed five of our properties for nearly two years, during which time we have found them to be honest, communicative and trustworthy.”
“In our experience whenever a tenant has requested repairs or maintenance, Dav Kumar and North Lodge Housing have visited the property and made their recommendations. … We receive the contractor’s quotation and are able to liaise directly with the contractor if we wish. We have never had problems with arranging to meet with Dav Kumar and we have been able to do accompanied visits to our properties, which have been totally satisfactory.”
“During the last six months both Frances and I have been very impressed by the diligent and efficient way that Dav Kumar and North Lodge Housing have undertaken our property management; we also know that is in no small measure due to Dav Kumar’s own professionalism, experience, leadership and hands-on approach to all aspects of[its service. There is an old saying that an organisation or business is as good as the person in charge and how true that is proving to be at North Lodge Housing.
“To say that we are happy to have moved our properties to North Lodge Housing is the understatement of the year; we are extremely grateful and very much appreciate what Dav Kumar is doing for us.”
