AVOID the following Estate Agents and Council. As they are both working together, to get you into unsuitable Accommodation for Political Favortism. Dame shirley porter scandal style! You AVOID: Palmpark/Gladesmore Estates Agents and Hackney Council. The Estates Agents operates in two parts - Gladesmore side has been dissolved since 2016 (told by Hackney council staff in 2017, but nothing done about it) but still operating, to take your Deposit and never return it. When you go to Palmpark Estates, they will tell you, that Gladesmore Estates USED to work for them and therefore it Gladesmore Estates who's responcable for your Deposit! Hackney Council knows about and has done nothing.
The Property they let you into is not suitable for living , and Hackney council knows about it - as the Council gave the Estates Agents Planning permisson to do it! If you contact Hackney Council, they will come around and visit, stating they will do something about it,but never does! Letters to the Council's Chief Executive, will not be replied. If your a Housing Benefit (HB) Claimant and first had the HB, paid to Palmpark/Gladesmore, and later request HB paid to you, Hackney Council will refuse you, making all excuses!
Thousands of Pounds of Public HB Money is being biased given to these Estates Agents to please them and in return please a Councilor (who is of the same Particular Religon as the Estates Agents) for Political Control of select Hackney Council areas.
