    Max estates deposit not returned

    Max estates deposit not returned 4th Oct 17 at 2:02 PM
    Hi all,

    I am in a similar situation to the people in Kathiravans7 thread 'deposit not returned'.
    I moved out a month ago from st faiths lane norwich, and have yet to receive my deposit of 831.50 from max estates/sutton management.
    They said in an email that they told new tenants that the deposit pays the last months rent but i was never informed.
    I have been emailing Angie and Michelle, who are the only contacts that I have been given, for the last month trying to chase them up. Everytime I email they send back an automatee reply saying they will be back in the office the next day but then never reply.
    Also apparently only Michelle can handle the finances but never replies.
    I have been in contact with my letting agent who have sent numerous emails to Angie and Michelle but again no replies.
    What can I do to get my money back? The flat was run inadequately; there was mould, no gas whilst being charged for it, the power kept going out every 2 weeks, no wifi, no lockers or holes for post so it was just left there.

    I just want my money back and this grievance to stop

    Companies House (which regulates directors of companies in the UK) and the Insolvency Service are always interested in evidence of illegal or fraudulent behaviour in relation to company directors and failed companies.
    If enough people complain then there is a certainty that action will be taken. If few complain then nothing will change.
    You need to write or email the contacts below:
    Danny Holder
    Phone number: 020 8667 8101
    and Google them to see what they do.
    Also you could write to the Registrar of Companies at Companies House.
    Nicholas Nelson Sutton's address is on Companies House website for a defunct company he owned called WESTHORPE HOUSE LIMITED Company number 10011749. It shows his address as:
    Homestall Manor, Homestall Road, Ashurst Wood, East Grinstead, West Sussex, England, RH19 3PG This is also his operational office. If you Google the address you will see it as the first image.
    If you or anyone you know has lost money owing to the actions of Nicholas Nelson Sutton's companies, please message me back with your story.

    Max Estates
    I've been asked by MSE that given the posting subject, to make sure I was careful not to post anything that could be considered libellous and I haven't. MSE haven't given me any legal advice of course. I was also asked to confirm by another poster that I have permission from the organisation I work with to pursue this. I do have that permission.

    I'm pleased with the response so far. Thanks to those that have been in contact especially J. Looks like there are many who have something to say about Max Estates. DM me if you prefer.
