I am a landlord and brought a property through Harmsworths and this was let to a tenant. This was my first experience at being a landlord and was guided by them. Fortunately I elected to manage the property myself. However, I can find no trace ...

Hi i think the only chance of us getting any money back is if we all get together and take him to court. I too had a property rented through him. We cannot let him get away with it, its robbery!! The trading standards are aware of the situation. but as yet nothing has happened. ...

They are happy to take money off you but will take 2-3 yrs to fix a toilet and months to fix a leaking sink. This company is a joke. Better to use a established estate agents rather than these clowns. They will allow house owners ...

Good call, the trading standards officer that I spoke to managed to contact Nick Harmsworth. Nick told him he would contact me but unsurprisingly I did not hear from him. I have written to my MP and also The News. I suggest everyone does this as I am not sure if anyone saw it but another dodgy letting agency has gone bust recently leaving lots of people out of pocket. Unlike Harmsworth, the company in question at least had the guts to admit they had gone out of business instead of creeping a ...

This guy is a compulsive liar. Not passing on rent and blaming the tenant, when I had evidence that the tenant had paid throughout their tenancy in a punctual manner. I informed Nick, by phone message, that I was terminating our arrangement as I could ...

I would be interested to know how you get one as I've tried money claims online and getting a judgement out on him, but so far he hasn't paid, and its costly to pursue legal matters. Is the small claims court the best way forward? Its all so stressful and time consuming. ...

This is completely untrue - you gave me permission to sort the carpets that were unsafe for a baby after you sent round a firm that only made the situation worse. At no time have you agreed for me to address the leak and reduce the rent as you advised the landlord would not cover this as he only had the work done last year. THis clearly didn't happen as the leak got worse over the 12 months I've lived there. My payments did change, thank goodness, and this was due to my pay day changing but al ...

I placed my property in the hands of this company in and have had no communication from them whatsoever. I have no idea if they have collected any rent from my tenant. Most unprofessional company I have come across....

What agent could do to change your mind?
They could have communicated with me that would have been a start. I could have been given a statement of what rent had been paid for my property. I could have been given copies of the photos they took. I am still waiting. This is four or five months down the line. My pleas for information fell on deaf ears.
