Fraud Warning Over London Short Let Flats

Landlord Discovers Bogus Company

London Short Let Flats
Trading From His Home Address

A warning has gone out to tenant and landlord consumers to beware of a fraudulent company trading as London Short Let Flats which is displaying a number of industry logos, including TPO and the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS).

The National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS) has posted a warning to consumers on its own website telling them to exercise extreme caution when dealing with the following websites:

NALS Chief Executive, Isobel Thomson told Property Industry Eye: “We reported the original site to Action Fraud and also to Trading Standards and have advised anyone contacting us about the site to also report their concerns to Action Fraud. We also wrote to the registered office address of Londonshortflats and sent it recorded delivery but the letter was refused.”

A spokesperson for the Tenancy Deposit Service also confirmed that the fraudulent website is using the TDS logo without consent or even being registered.

The fraudulent company only came to light after landlord, Martin McGrath, posted on the popular landlord forum, Property Tribes, to say that he had received a letter from TDS at his home address, informing him that London Short Let Flats was using the logo when not entitled.

Investing In Property Or Investing In Yourself?

Investing In Property Or Investing In Yourself?

Are You Getting The Property Investing
Results You Deserve?

Many people get involved in buying investment properties in the hope of either holding on to the property, renting it out and generating a healthy monthly rental yield or renovating the property and selling it on for profit. Many of these investors do this entirely by themselves without seeking the advice or experience of property investors and property professionals.

This is madness, you wouldn’t walk into Lord Sugar’s office and tell him he doesn’t know how to run a business, or visit a dentist who had never performed dental surgery before and ask them to pull out your very sore tooth?

I hope the answer was NO!

Going into property investing armed with nothing but determination won’t provide the financial return that you want, need or even deserve, going into property investing blind WILL lead to you making huge and costly mistakes.

To be a successful property investor you need to employ sound knowledge and demonstrate a few essential skills as well as more than a little financial acumen so that you can make successful decisions when examining property deals, when purchasing investment properties, or refinancing your existing rental property portfolio.

Education is the key to GOOD, PROFITABLE and ETHICAL property investment, knowing what to buy, where to buy, how to buy using other people’s money, how to control property without actually owning it, how to use lease options, when use instalment contracts, how to profit using rent to rent, the list could go on and on, but I think you get my point.

There are so many different strategies being used by property investors that it is difficult to keep up sometimes, however these different strategies become virtual goldmines for property investors when they invest in themselves and attend seminars, workshops, courses and property networking events.
