Be aware, be very aware and stay as far as possible from this agency. They are doing their business on unethical way. My daughter wanted to rent an apartment at Globe Estates (they are acctualy not globe, but the worst last lost place on this globe estate agency - WLLP Globe Agency ). The agency took the deposit from her without telling her that the minimum renting period was one year. My daughter told to the agent everything about herself (student from abroad, ...) so the agent knew that is better for him be silent about renting period, .... This fact came out on the next visit, when she wanted to pay the first rent, .... of course renting for 12 month was not an option, her study ends in july. The agent explanation was \"we are working properly\", \" we are working according the law\", \"the customer should tell us the renting period, how could we know\", \"she signed the paper and payed the deposit, so she knew everything\", ... So they didn\'t want to return the deposit to her. But the fact is that the customer should be told every importing fact about the property, ... and the minimum renting period is quite important fact, isn\'t it!. I can\'t imagine what kind of scums are you to take advantage of a young girl student coming to your office to find a proper home in London. I must say that in all countries in EU that kind of cheating could not happened at all, because the last bastards on earth wont have a hart or saves the last trace of morality for not to steal from a student. You obviously forgot that you are providing a home to the people, a home, .....if you know what is home. Anyway, your business should be closed by authorities.

Hi Kuci, thank you so much for placing your review on here. They are being investigated by all the relevent government departments here in the UK, i have made sure of that! I urge you and others to issue a county court claim in court to claim your deposits back. Ask your daughter to fill out a N1 claim form which she can get from HMRC website or tell her to go to her nearest county court, just google county court in the area she lives. I am assuming Clerkenwell and Shoreditch county court or Bow county court whichever is nearer to her. If she is claiming any benefits she can get her court fee paid in full ask her to ask for a fee remission form EX160 from the court. If not she will have to pay a small fee but the good thing is she will get her deposit back as Globe Estates are not adhering to the law implented in 2007 where the government has clearly stated that all deposits are supposed to be paid into an approved deposit bond and NOT HELD BY AGENTS OR LANDLORDS. This must be done within 7 days of the tenant giving them the deposit and they are supposed to tell your daughter which bond and details of who is holding the bond within 14 days. Tell your daughter to report them to her nearest council, if Tower Hhamlets 0207 364 5000 and ask for trading standards and report them as they are already being investigated. In the meantime tell your daughter to submit a N1 claim form in court and if she has to pay she will get this back with her deposit and it wont be more than 100 pounds. I Urge all tenants and Landlords to do the same and not give up! If you all want to make a claim in court and want to do this at the same time let me know on here and i will come back and assist you all the way. Landlords toughen up and call housing benefit on 0207 364 5001 if your tenants are in arrears instead of listening to lies from Globe Estates, you will know instantly whether payments have been made and to whom payments have been made. Or ask for the head of benefits and revenue and speak direct.
