The worst case scenario you can imagine when renting a property - avoid at all costs. A block of 7 apartments in Shoreditch re-possessed by the mortgage company and never told any of us tenants. The first we found out was when the baillifs can to seize the building and that was it we were all made homeless. Crown i believe have personal connection with the owner of the property who owes us tenants a huge amount of money in unreturned deposits and rent.
As an agency these people are beyond rude, immoral and down right shady. A judge actual told us tenants after the eviction that "we\'ve been conned" no help or protection, proper checks done by crown. The tenancy agreements where signed not by the actual landlord it turns out but by some jr at the office and our deposits where put in the legally required scheme but under a different name to that on our tenancy agreements, meaning we are unable to persue it\'s return legally. Total nightmare.
