It hit me like a ton of bricks last night. My estate agent in London is trying to jip me, and I'm seriously pissed off. $1582.00. That's how much I wired to him as a refundable deposit. One week's rent for our London flat. Our signed contract claimed my deposit would be returned within 10 days of the completion of our stay. We were very careful in the flat not to break or damage anything so as to get our full refund back. Heck, we even cleaned the stupid thing before we left! They have confirmed there were no problems with the flat as a result of our stay, and we are due the entire balance of that deposit.
That was three months ago.
The most frustrating part is that the flat was lovely. Their properties are convenient and well-kept. Our stay was truly wonderful.
However, they haven't returned a single dime that they owe me. So after 3 months of waiting, pleading, and threatening that I will warn others, I'm releasing his name to save anyone else from making the mistake of doing business with them:
Real World Rental Co.
Agent: Mr. Robin Larkins
PROCEED WITH TREMENDOUS CAUTION.
And if anyone reading this lives in the Fulham neighborhood of London, could you please go into the office and slap him for me? Much obliged.
