I rented out my flat via a letting agent called Ryan Allen lettings. Who then found a company called Masie Recruitment as company staff to live as tenants.Contract says not to sub-let and it is for staff only. Both the Ryan Allen and Masie Recuitment are not resisted under HMRC.
They both are on line scam and have a fake trading address.
The Scam is they sign a contract with land lord and sub let property as individual rooms and take upfront 3-6 months deposit for each room and stop paying to landlord. Notice is served by Landlord advice uk,but tenants refuses to vacate the property. Any help will be appreciated. my email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a few rogue criminal agents who make a living out of setting up limited company and scamming landlords and tenants. Landlords MUST ensure the check the company has been trading for ideally over 10 years and not in breach of companies house rules. Still get a directors guarantee too.
