Do not use Globe Estates! This estate agent had taken on our flat through a landlord and it turns out the \'landlord\' was actually the tenant getting the flat through the housing association and illegally sub-letting it to us! We recieved letters from the housing association telling us we needed to vacate, which we were dealing with.
However the \'landlord\' came round a couple of days later (with about 9 additional men) to move into the flat whilst we were still there. Therefore had to move out right there and then... costing us a lot of money and tears.
Guess what! We couldn\'t get hold of Globe Estates and they showed a tiny ounce of sympathy when we went in the next day to explain. All still shaking from the terrifying experience of being kicked out of our home.
We had to fight to get our full deposit back despite being made homeless and having to deal with a lot of other crap we had been through with them. It was very clear they did not put our deposits in the tenancy deposit scheme either which is illegal.
On top of this they called themselves the \'victims\' as well in this situation!!!
I wish I had seen these reviews before renting with them - they cannot be trusted, are very unprofessional and clearly do not know anything about property, renting, being a legit estate agent.
