My apartment wasd inspected by the letting agents yesterday. I got a letter today saying that it is being kept in good condition.
I don't know if the letting agents complied with my doormat message of 'Please take off your shoes', but it would be nice to think they did. It might have even prompted them to remove their shoes in the other two apartments in the block.
I think my 'shoes-off' doormat is a great way of sending a message about shoes in homes.
