Thank you for the feedback Sarah. I have reached out to the landlord to complain as he did not mention the construction. I am sorry about this unusual issue, it never happened before. Regarding the lights this is strange as all the lights work in the home. Perhaps you did not realize where the light switches were.
The place has been decorated further since the photos, by an interior designer. If you had shared your feedback during your stay I would have ensured to turn it around. Thanks for your feedback!
