Putting together a case after the deposits disappeared

Has anyone out there dealt with My Home My House Ltd (Northwood Middx), Lionsgate International Ltd (Knightsbridge London), ZM Properties Ltd (Luton) or Lettings Essentials Ltd (Luton). I am putting together a case via the Cotswold Barristers Private Prosecutions Service and would appreciate input from any other victims..fraud

My tenants’ deposit was held in one of the three government deposit accounts available on signing contracts. One month later without notice to me, the letting agency took the money out of the account, later giving the reason of changing schemes.

The companies all appear to have been struck off. I have had no correspondence in several months. The deposit is no longer available to me, which as a landlord I am now liable to reimburse my tenant with.

I am seeking to establish if mine is an isolated case. If either as landlord or tenant, if you are owed any money (either rental or unprotected deposits) held by any of these companies please contact me via the Property118 Contact form below. Your enquiry will be emailed to me and cc’d to Carla Morris-Papps at Cotswold Barristers.
