Letting Agent Gone Bust – Ilford

A local letting agent in Ilford, Essex has closed down his business and run off – no one appears to know where he has gone.

A number of landlords including myself have been left in a position where we have tenants in our properties and don’t know how to evict them.

The original tenancy agreements have been signed with the letting agent. We also believe that some deposits were protected under a scheme and some were not.

Anyone have any ideas?

Dear Sandeep,

Mark Smith (Barrister-at-Law) has had success for a previous group of Property118 readers in a case against an agent, but it was settled out of court.

It depends on if there is any money to be recovered, but it may be worth contacting Mark on our Private Prosecutions page see >> https://www.property118.com/private-prosecutions/

Especially if there are a group of you.

Hi sandeep
There are a lot of agents out there which are not regulated or registered with a monitoring body. It is unfortunate what has happened but we can surely help you with this and guide you on what to do next.
Please contact me on 02083964000.
Thanks

Best of luck
