Three years ago i approached a then YOUNG lettings r us,that had just started out about a house that became available NEAR wynford road area of frome.
I viewed the property with my daughter,mr candy came across very charming,smiling,happy go lucky i liked the property and offered him a "cheque"as a deposit.
His attitude just switched on like a light bulb,"the company only deals in cash"he very abruptly said,stupidly i accepted this,he then arranged to follow me to a cashpoint where i drew out 200 pound,he wrote out a reciept on what looked like a 50p cheap reciept book.
I arranged with him to pay the rest in two days time and move in.
After the weekend i changed my mind as it had a pond,i have a dog and was not sure about the garden,rang candy up tried to arrange a meeting to get 200 pound back.
"no way"he said ,that was for a credit check and you failed miserably,then put the phone down.
I complained to certain estate agent regulators,totally toothless pass the buck merchants and have now accepted i lost the money.
Mr candy is sponsored by his land owner father near mells,mr candy was also prosecuted for running an UN-LICENSED office from home by mendip council,breaking evey single planning regulation in the book.
What agent could do to change your mind?
get properly registered.........

Shame your words hold no weight. I think your posts are in vein. 'Lettings r us' reputation is already severely tarnished beyond repair. Perhaps a career at 'Toys R Us' would be more suitable? At least then you won't be messing with people's lives.

Well digger for a start it proves the types of tenants he deals with as your message comes acroos as though you wrote or tried to write it whilst drunk...
I think i would have to be blind drunk to even think of anythng decent to put on here about Mr Candy. He denies he ises his staff to write messages well of course you will deny it because they write them from pc's elsewhere and make up new user names and email addresses to try and repair what is already a proven con artist type company.
Oh yes Mr Candy we gather you are being investigated then for bad practice?....im sure you will deny this but we all know the actual truth dont we and by using the word "TRUTH" to you Mr Candy then i apoligize for swearing!!

This is pretty much how he is and i vote this person as another victim of a rip off merchant...he is a liar and i have on good authority he gets friends and staff members to post "kind" comments...thats only because he pays their wages and not because they respect him i might add!

We are a professional letting company our policy is not to take cheques unless it is a bankers draft cheque as we have had many cheques bounce in the past. We do take cash or card and we do give receipts for this. The agency fee is paid for the credit checks and referencing and is non refundable, so the tenant needs to be serious about a property before putting this down. Lettings R Us are not sponsered by anyone and run a sucessful business as we have a professional approach to our work and lots of happy tenants and landlords.
