Well I am going to be closing the door on Tame Estates and the shithole they were renting me tonight.

I urge anyone that's even cosidering renting from them to reconsider and avoid at all cost!!!

I'm not leaving off my own back I'm being evicted for no reason what so ever, they claim I'm in arrears but I'm not. I don't owe a penny and have reciepts to proove this but I never attended court as I did not know there was a hearing because the hand delivered letter with the date of hearing never got delivered so they were granted there warrent.

I've not left any damage or mess in the property however I'm sure they will claim I have.

I dread to think what my gaurenteurs bill will be and I'm taking as much leagal action as possible.

Do not go near Tame Estates.

Hi I've only been with TE Lettings since January 2011 and I've also received rent arrear letters even though I don't owe any, apparently there's nothing I can do as they haven't broken the law, but now my gaurantor is also receiving them. I need help as I have 2 children and I don't know what to do, I've explained this to my guarantor and now there is ill feeling between us and he don't believe me. Please help.

My wife and myself were renting from Tame Estates for about 5 years. We were never in arrears with the rent and we hardly ever complained, apart from one time where we were invaded by ants. We were on the New Charter list from 2004 and never heard a thing from them once. We decided to move to Scotland and we officially left on June 19th. We have waited all that time to receive back our deposit - We even went in while I visited my Mother-in-law to the Tame Estate office and we were assured by them that we would get it in 2 weeks. That was 3 weeks ago. There was certainly no mess or repairing needed done as there was someone moved into our old property in less than 8 days and I took photographs to prove as such.
I just wondered has anyone any advice as to how proceed now? I am even going to travel back to Ashton and wait in their office until I get the money if nothing comes of my phonecall to them tomorrow.

A have read the reviews here and must agree tame staff are terrible they are rude and don't care about you. I always ask for the manager and they tell me he is not in or holiday or off work or a meeting they don't care its all rubbish, he is always in he drives the silver mercedes its on the car park and even round the back 2 weeks ago. Stay away from shame estates, once they get you to sign it's too late.

Hi rach I was on the list with new charter for a while I just kept on at them ringing and writing letters,if you go to housing options they may be able to get in touch with them and hurry things along. When you ring them ring relets 01613312345 ask to speak to one of the relet officers that's what I did and was offered a house in just over a week...hope everything works out for you xx

Thanks mez but I've already got a new house I was on the list for new charter way before they evicted me so they just help to speed things up if I'm honest, thanks anyway.

Hi Lea
I am sure you had a witness to confirm you left the property in a good state, and I would suggest you contact Rent Wise, as they maybe able to help you find another property if you have been evicted.
They help people like yourself find properties and even help with the deposit. I know they are based in Manchester and have something to do with the council but they maybe help you even if you want to stay in Tameside.
