If you’re having issues with your roommate/s, the first step is to discuss those issues with them directly. If you’re not comfortable doing that or if it’s an issue that requires greater attention, you’ll need to speak with the on-site manager or a staff member to raise your concerns so a solution can be made.
If you’d like to make a complaint, you’ll need to address any issues you’re having to the building manager in writing, either through an email, or letter or via the GOKI or MEWS apps.
