Agency accused of fake claims over tenants’ deposits

A lettings agency has been accused of falsely claiming deposits were being held in a deposit protection scheme and other related offences.

The offences involving Let Me Lettings, in Wigan, are alleged to have happened between August 2016 and June 2019 and involved properties in Wigan and Skelmersdale.

Local media report that Linda Murray, of Windermere, also faces 14 charges of fraud relating to the deposits. 


“The charges relate to fraud by false representation regarding deposits of various amounts, ranging from £450 to £1,050” says the Wigan Today news website.

A hearing held at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court last week was adjourned until June 1 as Murray was unable to attend through ill-health.

    What a ridiculous comment. A tenant could just as easily claim, without any evidence, landlords are nightmares to tenants.
