What do readers think of the following e-mail I received from my managing agent?
“VA Property Consultants are now SELLING properties in Luton and Dunstable and would like your help to create awareness for our new sales department. This is why I am contacting you as a valued client as we would like your support please.
We will be erecting one of our promotional boards (attached for your interest) on your property «SellingPropertyReference» which we have let/currently manage for a period of 4 weeks to promote selling houses to the local residents and the public.
The board will be put up on the 13/03/2015 and it will be removed by the 13/04/2015. Our professional board contractor will erect the board at the property neatly.
We have notified the tenants for their co-operation and wanted to ask you of the same out of courtesy. If however you object to a board going up please call my office as soon as possible as we would not want to upset our relationship with you.”
I have said no as I would not be happy if I was a tenant that there is a board outside advertising I am a tenant.
What would you say?
