Complaint Contacts

It is important that in the first instance residents contact the relevant authority or body to properly register an official complaint.  Whenever possible and appropriate they should do so in writing, email or text because evidence in a dated paper-trail can be extremely helpful if it becomes necessary to take the matter to the next level.  Check our Estate Contacts page for local estate management companies...
