- “Was flooded for the 5th time, in my Housing Association Flat, in July 2017! I’m a vulnerable adult, a fact known to this HA. On all occasions it’s been extremely frustrating, laborious and stressful trying to get the extensive damage treated and for timely painting and decorating done!! ……Amirah supported me very well from day one; she was in constant contact with me and forwarded letters from doctors, etc stating the negative impact this was having on my physical, emotional and mental health, to the Housing Association’s Legal department. The Housing Association had initially REFUSED to move me to a place of safety…… in spite of water pouring through light fixtures, wall sockets, walls and ceilings in 90% of my flat! They very reluctantly put me up in an hotel, but called me to threaten that I should return to my flat- meanwhile, there were TWO industrial dehumidifiers operating for 12-15 hours daily for 14 days to try to dry out the flat! This was during the summer! It took a further 16 months for the moisture to dry up- resulting in very expensive utility bills that they refused to reimburse me for. In spite of all her hard work and perseverance, coupled with my efforts to resolve this problem ASAP, they STILL took an inordinately long time to get all the jobs done to a high standard (this stain blocking and using appropriate paint). As a direct consequence of the poor state of my flat, I developed breathing problems and have to use inhaler pumps indefinitely! Without the hard work put in by Amirah, this would have made my health deteriorate drastically…. I wholeheartedly recommend this company to anyone and everyone who has the misfortune that I’ve had, of uncaring Housing Providers.”
