I moved out of a rented apartment at the Start of June. I\'ve always paid my rent and on bills on time and treated like my own.
I have has every excuse for not paying my deposit back and I realise that I will not get one penny of my £1200 back and the same goes for my flat mate with his £1200. They will deduct every penny for one reason or another, cleaning, check out, bills you have never heard of before, Every trick in the book and its all in the contract . Legalised Theft.
Both me and my flat mate are good reasonable, honest, professional people who mistakenly thought that by renting from a big company we would be ensuring we where well looked after and respected But believe me behind all the glossy adverts and suits and smiles they will rip you off, take what they can. and they don\'t give a shit. again they really to not give a shit. Like the Galliard family in "shameless". I wish I had never ever moved into one of there properties and will never again and I would warn anyone who considers buying or rent to beware, they are skilled at what they do and do it well.
Read the reviews about buyers loosing there deposits when the property market dropped and could not complete because the property was not worth that Gallairds where charging. another family destroyed. time and time again.
Or the tenant loosing deposits because of stupid charges.
