To all who have had the trials and tribulations my girlfriend and I have had with this disgusting agency, I have wonderful news for you. They have indeed been found out by myself and my girlfriend to be criminal scum, if you, like us, struggled to get your deposit back, I suggest you contact DPS, if you were living within one of their property's within the last 6 years, you can still claim it back. I accused them of not protecting her deposit a week ago, at which time, they hurriedly tried to...

Probably the worst agents I have ever come across in my entire life. They would never carry out any repairs, they did not return my deposit - not even sure if they had protected it in the first place. There fancyh website is misleading. For example, they say they have won an award in 2008 but when I checked companie House, they had not even started trading until 2013! Please do not deal with them unless you want to have the same experience as myself...

I found Globe Rooms/United London Estates on gumtree when I needed somewhere live when first moving to London. I had 2 days to find a place to live and was scared I wouldn\'t find anywhere. I met a really nice girl called Tina who showed me around a few shared properties around Brick Lane. I don\'t know of any other companies letting out rooms individually in the area, and I was shown a room on Quaker Street which was perfect. I signed for it that day. The signing process was easy, and I move...

The worst agency ever! During my stay there they were so unhelpful when it came to fixing things like the boiler and the shower. When I wanted to move rooms they demanded so much money from me but when it came to getting my deposit back I was ignored for months. I was relying on getting my money back and they left me in a very bad financial situation. I rang up numerous times and sent emails, all ignored. I was even once told I had the wrong number and that this agency didn\'t deal with the prop...

If you are reading this and have not yet entered a contract with United London Estates, or Globe Estates, then do not, under any circumstances sign the dotted line. Trust your instinct: when you walked through the door of their office, and sat in the poorly furnished office, with signs printed on A4 pieces of paper, your gut told you to run. You should. Entering into a contract with United London Estates was the biggest mistake I made in my time in London. These guys are crooks, and quite ope...

WATCH OUT!!! The company has changed its name again. Nowadays they are acting under United London Estates Ltd. Its current location is. Unit 2, 1A Hollybush Place Off Bethnal Green Road E2 9QX - London Furthermore, you will never get your deposit back or if you are lucky with a MASSIVE REDUCTION. I am still wondering how those people can be in business after all the problems and headaches that had caused over the years. Besides, there is a promise and full-commitment to offer maintenance within their properties, in fact that is a fake word, which will never be delivered. Plus, its staff changes every single day. Please remember, UNITED LONDON ESTATES from now on. LANDLINE is 02076132188 Now you are well-informed, that means in case of taking any property with them you will face and suffer all those consequences that were listed above. To end up, I wish you all the best when looking for accommodation in London.

I am a landlord with several properties being managed by Globe Estates over a number of years. I have never experianced any problems and in fact would highly recommend them. I find it puzzling to hear comments from people saying that their deposit is not being returned. If this is true, then surely these people claiming to have lost their money can take legal action and get 3 times the amount! There appears to be a smear campaign by someone in trying to discredit this company. It appears that so...

Globe Estates have been really excellent with the service they have provided to me so far compared to my previous agents who let my properties on their Guarantee scheme and halfway through the contract started to charge me for maintenance in the property and hence began providing a poor quality of service.

Landlord DO NOT TRUST THIS AGENT. I signed up to their 2 years rent guarantee scheme and at end of the contract they start making excuses and not returning my property. I am not the first victim of this which is costing me 1000s of pounds. They would partition your rooms without your knowledge and put lots of people into the property. The actual contract they offer is not worth the paper its printed on. They collected the rent in cash from the tenants (covering their traces) and told me the tena...

Stay away from them. Do not pay any deposit or rent advance until you have spoken with the landlord not Globe Estates and that the landlord will secure your deposit in a tenant bond!! Globe have a habit of not securing bonds and instead won't pay the money back when you move out!! Don't part with your money. Check your tenancy and contact the landlord directly and make a cheque payable to the landlord instead of Globe or Britannia crest! ...

We recieved letters from the housing association telling us we needed to vacate, which we were dealing with. However the \'landlord\' came round a couple of days later (with about 9 additional men) to move into the flat whilst we were still there. Therefore had to mov...
