    Letting Agent gone into liquidation

    No vitriol in tended and that is NOT how I intended to come across.

    Rather to protect this guy from making the same mistake as he didn't appear to recognise that he needed to change his ways.

    Rather to say yes I have been a bit of a dope

    What can I do to not be a dope for the future!!

    Then all the info will flood to him

    His example is to be stressed as there are many other LL out there that could easily be in the same position.

    It just really annoys me that good people like him are ripped off by criminal LA.

    Please dopey LL wake up and don't allow what has happened to this poor LL to happen to you

    Review your LA circumstances TODAY!!!

    Rob, you can safely ignore Paul's rudeness and rants, the majority of people here do.  You made a mistake, that would be because you're human :-)  Main thing is that you've learned from it, which you obviously have.  Best of luck.

    As a limited company an Insolvency Practitioner should be appointed, you need to find out who that is.  They may get your name from the files and write to you but don't rely on it.    They should write to all the creditors advising when they are holding the winding up meeting, attending the meeting will give you the opportunity to ask questions as to where the money went. It will also give you the opportunity to exchange contact details with others affected - you will need those contacts to act collectively on some things.

    You should report the crime to the police and get a crime number, share that with the other landlords so they can all register the crime against that number, don't expect the police to act quickly but the more of you that register the crime the more chance of a prosecution and if prosecuted and found guilty you may get money back under the proceeds of crime.

    If rent has not been paid on there is a good chance that deposits are missing, it is therefore also important to contact the relevant scheme and advise them and start the claim with them as well.  When checking if registered with ARLA etc, don't take the agents word for it - check ARLA's site etc yourself.

    Slow onward rent payment can be a sign of the agent having problems, expect rents to be paid on promptly.

    Good luck
