DO NOT USE THIS AGENT. They are a complete scam. All of their positive reviews in this site are written by themselves. They are lying, cheating, aggressive con artists who will push you to pay £500 holding deposit for a flat that wont materialize, then they will ignore all your requests for your money back telling you to email an \'accounts department\' email address which nobody replies to. They just take your money and leave you high and dry. They find a loophole in the law and abuse it, praying on prospective tenants desperate to find a property. Look on Companies House website and you will see that they are bankrupt. Scroll down the reviews to see the true reviews of all the poor people that they have conned out of deposits. They are compulsive liars and a shame to the industry. DO NOT PAY THIS AGENT ANY MONEY YOU WILL SERIOUSLY REGRET IT. Never use agents who ask for a holding deposit before a property has been accepted. This company should be shut down immediately

Dear Reviewer

Further to our response to your review (above) dated 6th June 2013, we have not been contacted by you or have received any correspondence from anyone matching your description of events. We therefore have no choice but to either think that your complaint has now been resolved or this review was a fake from the start. We have had many reviews added on this site from competitors and they all seem to be written in a similar fashion, using the same words and are almost duplicates of each other. We hope this was not one of them.

If your query still remains outstanding please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards

Such a typical David St James response. They ignore your concern and come up with some other rubbish. I.e. the 'jealous competitor'.

Why do you continuously not return people's money? Why do you have so many CCJ's against you? You are essentially thieves in suits aren't you?

This is definitely NOT a 'jealous competitor', as you have such a bad reputation that nobody sees you as a threat in this market.

I request everyone to read the REAL reviews of this agency before doing any business with them. Not the featured fake reviews written by themselves which are at the top. Do not pay this agency any money STAY WELL CLEAR

Dear Reviewer

Thank you for your comment and we are sorry to hear that you are still disgruntled.

We work and have worked closely with trading standards and therefore have an open dialog should they feel the need to speak to us.

Since your original review and our response asking you to contact our customer services department, we have kept a close eye on our emails to make sure we do not miss your email. We have to date not received any email from you whatsoever. We therefore request that if you are a genuine reviewer and not a jealous competitor attempting to discredit us, please contact our customer services department.

If we do not hear from you we can only presume that this is a fake review and an attempt to slander our name.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

[[EDIT ORIGINAL START]]
No you dont want to see if you can help. If you wanted to help, you would return mine and everyone else's 'holding deposit' which you never do because you scam everyone.

You say that deposits will be returned in 10 working days (which is law), now you have just said that you dont even reply to the emails within 10-13 working days. My request for my holding deposit has not been responded to in 1 month. Same story for everyone in the real reviews below. Not the fake good reviews that you write yourself. You are a total disgrace.

Perhaps you should take a look at your 'systems' again because you will find a lot of emails from people trying to get their holding deposits back from you, including mine.

Companies House shows that you are -£228,000 in debt. Only your scam of taking deposits and refusing to return them within 10 days keeps you afloat. It also shows the amount of Country Court Jurisdictions against you - when you have refused to pay peoples deposits back.

You are compulsive liars, criminals, con artists you just cant stop lying. Trading Standards will close you down this year
