If despite our careful selection and regular monitoring there are still problems, the tenant must report their complaint immediately to the Administration department at Quality Estates so that we can take appropriate action. The early exit from the property, without prior consultation or mutual agreement, relieves Quality Estates of any responsibility for compensation.
