After moving out from a property let by Christopher Stanley Ltd (September 2013) we waited 3 months to get our deposit back but the company has failed to returned it ( £1200). We contacted all three government-authorised tenancy deposit protection schemes to learn that Christopher Stanley Ltd has never registered our deposit which was their legal duty. After our Letter before Action was ignored we applied for the County Court and received order against Christopher Stanley Ltd (March 2014)....

What agent could do to change your mind?
The price for a 1 bedroom flat is very high ‚£900 but it is nothing compare to the ‚£4975 that the Christopher Stanley Ltd owes us.

Much like the review above from back in 2015, Carl Afilaka (formerly of Christopher Stanley) now works for a "company" called Abode Estate Agents. Trust me when I say, nothing has changed in his practices. I've now been left the property for 3 months and have yet to receive my £2200 deposit, or even the remainder of it for any "damages" which may have been found. 41 Sycamore Road in Launton was a great property managed by a ruthless supposed letting agent. Should the landl....

Olatunde 'Carl' Afilaka has been pursued by Trading Standards for over 6 years . In that time, he has defrauded me and 3 other landlords to my knowledge of over £30,000 and probably hundreds of tenants. Be warned he is very convincing even to seasoned landlords and tenants. I have never known him put a deposit into a registered scheme and he knows the landlord is liable. He will often pocket the rent and deposit he collects in cash knowing there is no evidence. For potential tenants, hi...

This agency is not TO BE TRUSTED WITH YOUR MONEY OR YOUR PROPERTY. 1 star rating is too high for Christopher Stanley Lettings and C* A* who owns the agency. C*A* registered my deposits and because I am the landlord I had to pay them back with my own money. He no longer has an office at Market Square in Bicester which is advertised on this site. Thus, bringing the veracity and accuracy of this site into question.....

DO NOT TRUST THIS LETTING AGENT - money taken for deposit and not registered with tenancy deposit scheme, then not returned at end of tenancy. The letting agent has kept the deposit despite various promises to refund it. The agent also took money to pay a contractor, then never paid the contractor. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEFRAUDED BY THIS AGENT please report it to the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Center on 0300 1232040, where a case is already building....

That agency is a fraud agency. They have taken deposit of 25% first rent and reference fee of £240. I was very hesitate to pay that money as it all happened very quickly, viewing, filling out the form and paying money within few days only. When I talked to 'the manager' Carl he reassured me if for some reason I won\'t be able to move in my deposit ill be return. I knew from the beginning that references fee was non refundable. While we getting ready to move in to new flat we wer...

Carl is a person one should not trust. We paid him 1850 pounds in advance before signing the contract for a flat. He told us that flat is available from 3rd FEB 2014 and we needed the Flat from that date only we are very clear on the date from the beginning and the money was transferred on the basis of his word that the Flat is available from that date. The landlord did not agree to sign the contract because the Flat was not available from that date. Carl told us that he would make the landlord ...
