Three letting agent directors appear in court
Tuesday 3rd July 2012
Three family members who were directors of a lettings agency have appeared in court accused of a £7,500 fraud.
Toni and Jacqueline Burridge and their daughter Kayleigh, who ran Hothomes UK, Plymouth, Devon, are accused of making false claims over tenants’ deposits.
The three had allegedly claimed the company was part of a registered deposit protection scheme.
Toni Burridge, 40, Jacqueline Burridge, 41, and Kayleigh Burridge, 19, each indicated ‘no plea’ to a joint charge of fraud by false representation between October 31, 2010, and July 1 last year.
Elaine Keen, for the Crown Prosecution Service, alleged all three were complicit in running the lettings agency.
The case will now be heard at Plymouth Crown Court.
All three were released on unconditional bail.
Hothomes UK closed down suddenly last July.
