Apparently we are not the first people to have the trouble to get deposit back. Island estate London refuses to answer the call, never reply message or email.
Dose anyone take legal action and get court help?
Please give us some advice if you have been through the same situation.

how can he sleep at night doing this to us, we were once the source of his existence and living he should respect the fact we chose to give him an opportunity and not scam us in return. So morally unethical, unprofessional, unreliable.

He was arrested just before Christmas for fraudulently taking money but it looks like he has been released and has ran away away to Dubai. Not too much of a surprise. He stole a lot of money from my renting through him too. I don't think he acted alone and must have had help from some of the other staff we dealt with.

yes we should do, this should not be allowed to happen, unsure how many more there are like this
I am so angry he is 25 years old and not fit to run a company,
he has a duty of care to his customers.
lots of people are looking to receive their rent and deposit back and he seems to be sunning himself in Dubai as per Facebook !

Yes, we just take action through Money Claim Online which is recommended on government website. It seems a part of court service. We paid £105 only. However, it will take several weeks or longer.

I also leave the message to them saying there are many people facing the same problem and we share story in this website. Hope it can grab their attention and they could actually do something to prevent it happening again.

At this stage, we couldn't do anything more but wait. Hope everyone here will have money back soon.

According to Companies House there is an active proposal to strike this company off. I have lodged a complaint with Trading Standards, but I don't know if they have been able to track him down....
