15) Complaints.

  • Whilst the Owner endeavours to take care to ensure the Resident’s satisfaction, should the Resident have cause for complaint this must be reported to the Owner immediately so that the matter can be investigated fully, allowing for the opportunity to try to correct and make good the problem.
