Renters union ACORN apologises unreservedly to Landlord: Click here
Apology and Correction: “We provide this Apology and Correction in order to apologise to Zobia Rafique and Century One Estates Ltd in relation to very serious, defamatory and false allegations that we made about them in publications dated 20 December 2020, 20 February 2021, 22 February 2021 and 1 April 2021.
“We published allegations stating that Mrs Zobia Rafique operates a fraudulent business and defrauded Ms Aya Hoez, a student tenant, by making her sign a blank tenancy agreement, creating a “bogus” agreement, and then adding additional unexpected fees. We stated that Ms Rafique was guilty of stealing £300 from her tenant. Further, we stated that Mrs Rafique and Century One Estates Ltd “tricked” and “pressured” a student tenant into paying a deposit for a substandard property, made her feel unsafe, and refused to return her deposit with the consequence that the tenant then faced homelessness.
“It is without reservation that we accept responsibility for these false and defamatory allegations. We recognise that there was no good foundation to these allegations, and we regret that they were ever made. We, therefore, wish to correct the position and to express our regret to Mrs Zobia Rafique and Century One Estates Ltd for the serious distress and reputational harm caused to them by these false allegations which we retract in their entirety.
“We have agreed to pay libel damages and costs to Mrs Rafique and Century One Estates Limited.”
