Lettings Firm Closes, but Owes Customers Money
A letting agent has allegedly closed, but still owes landlords and tenants money in rent and deposits.
The firm, Kirby Property Management, has three branches in Cambridgeshire.
Kirby belongs to the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS) and the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).
A spokesperson for NALS comments: “We are aware of the sudden closure of Kirby Property Management who were previously part of the NALS.
“We would advise any landlords or tenants who have any concerns to speak with Cambridgeshire police in the first instance.
“Landlords may also wish to register their interest with NALS who operate a Client Money Protection scheme and may, in certain circumstances, be able to assist.”1
