Loc8 Estate Agents - WARNING TO ALL LANDLORDS
They managed one of my properties. The tenant in the property split up with her boyfriend and then "maybe because she couldn't afford the rent" moved out early. I said to Loc8 to chase up the rent which she still owed.
It went to a legal battle of which there was an outer court settlement made, except they forgot to get in writing and next thing i knew, i was left with a hefty fine and a CCJ against my name.
When we looked into it, the tenant sued Loc8 for not protecting the rent and they ignored all attempts to resolve the matter, they left legal papers to over run their deadline dates and never informed me of anything.
When you research them, they have also made a similar "mess-up" with another landlord, costing the landlord £0000, whilst there still sat pretty in their offices.
They don't care about their landlords and their tenants and i would urge any landlord not to deal with them as they are incompetent and they will get you into serous bother.
