After 2 and a half years of what can be described as absolutely pathetic dealings with these cowboys, I am finally free!!!
The property was a large 4 bedroom property on the outskirts of Crawley. When we viewed the property we were informed by David "the slimeball" O\'Connor that it was unfurnished. This wasn\'t true. We had our own furniture which we wanted to use instead of the 30year old tat that was in the house and we ended up paying for storage for that crap!!
A bug bear of mine as well was the fact the they charge THE TENANT £60 for a quarterly inspection. Forgive me for sounding silly but shouldn\'t the LANDLORD be getting charged that and not the tenant? Oh wait a minute......they charge both. Most of the time it was just a note popped through the door which shows they never bothered looking anyway. £120 in the pocket, thanks very much you muppets, lots of love David O\'Connor
I found Marco to be one of the easier people to deal with from this outfit but getting my deposit back at the end of my tenancy proved to be a long and laborious task. David? Well he is just everything you would expect from someone who has the genetic makeup of a reptile. Grant - David\'s little lap dog, always nice and friendly to your face but on the phone he\'s 6ft 4 and 20stone solid muscle from his attitude. He\'d be lucky to be 9stone wet!
As I\'m not a person who likes liars and bullies, after a while I decided that going in person to their office was a much more effective solution. They weren\'t so big then. I mean, most of the older "men" in that office must all chip in and bulk buy a pallet load of Just For Men as I\'ve never seen so much hair dye in all my life!
Generally I am telling everybody that reads this to stay well away from Platinum Estates. They are absolutely useless and anybody I have come across has never had anything good to say about them(homeowners and even legal representatives included). I\'m stunned as to how they are still in business! They couldn\'t run a bath! Totally unprofessional and untrustworthy! They won\'t last much longer!
Glad to be rid of them at last!!
What agent could do to change your mind?
Disappeared in a puff of smoke before I signed the tenancy agreement would have been nice!
