Tariq Zaman

I was just talking to some students from Leeds the other night, after the BBC Watchdog programme about Tariq Zaman and Providence Properties. It seems that the student union is well aware of both Providence Properties and Tariq Zaman, and has contacted him on numerous occasions to get deposits back that rightfully belong to students, without any joy.

It’s disgusting how someone can exploit the needs of students for accommodation, and can steal their money, in the way that Tariq Zaman and Providence Properties seem to have done.

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m a landlord myself and wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if I just stole people’s money and avoided the courts when they ruled against me. In my opinion it’s because of people like Tariq Zaman, and Providence Properties, that the housing market is so low at the moment. By having over 600 hundred properties, as Providence Properties state on their website, regular folk can’t afford to buy a house, and when students graduate and can’t their deposits back as Watchdog state, they’re starting life off with another debt on top of their student debts.

Providence Properties should be run out of business for their actions if they’re true, and hopefully as a result of the BBC Watchdog programme, coverage online and the help of Leeds University, students will boycott them.

More importantly, if landlords boycott the service they offer they’ll go out of business. There are many decent letting agents around, without having to use Tariq Zaman and Providence Properties.

  1. Students are told to use Unipol to find a property, and Providence Properties are definitely not on their list. But unfortunately this bad press won’t harm them, because they’ll just come back next year with a different name. It happens all the time. But if you use Unipol, you avoid all these problems!

  2. Perhaps the courts should consider repossessing some of these 600 properties, or all of them, to pay the students back and sell at auction to first time buyers at a reduced price!

  3. Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that Tariq Zaman is a cousin of mine, and he is a real crook.
    He would rob his own mum if he had the chance.

    By the way – the other name mentioned on Watchdog (Azeem) – he is Tariq’s younger brother – so obviously it’s the same family that you are dealing with.

    They are bot low lifes – but do not give up -get them into court again , and claim losses against them

    I hope you get your money back all of you

  4. They are a Joke! soon or later Tariq Zaman would end up turning his houses into brothels I’m sure he would not mind having his mother, sister or wife run them, as long as he could make some money.
    SHAMLESS BREED

    (Watch out for they other branch that’s around the corner from them its Black & Pink colour *Hint Hint* IL not say the name)

  5. Just to add few of my commets about mr T Zaman,s family, I personly know that family, thay all are crooks , no respect for other peoples, very selfish and greedy peoples, name you have to remeber when you rent properties in Leeds 6 headingly are, Tariq, Khalid, Basharat, Azeem,Shaida Zaman. they are all brothers and sister, and Mr Shabir and one of another business collgues, beware fo all these names, I hope we all together get them out of business, These peoples are burdon on the society, and better of without them, they don’t care how they make money out of people. thanks`

  6. about My Hussain commets are dead right, he owes me some money which he refused to pay, I hope someone will sort him, He think they are above the law and can get away with murder, He already been to prison and uses this as taugh guy Image, Im sure lots of people suffer through him who don,t have access to computer, His brothers are same as him and have no digneity and self respect, toatly low life scums of the earth

  7. HI

    I also along with my 4 housemates have not yet recieved our £300 deposits back however i heard a rumour that Tariq Zaman also owns My Homez which is located just down the road from providence properties

    Hope This can be of help to anyone!!

  8. The most annoying thing about the whole case is that even though everyone now knows they are operating through this new company, nothing can be done. As far as the law is concerned they are 2 different companies. The phone number for Providence Properties no longer works since their move to ‘new prestige offices’ in Leeds city centre, no one can talk to them there and they are no longer advertising properties on their website. It looks like Providence are purposefully winding it all down and moving to Myhomez.

  9. THE LAW STINKS IN THIS COUNTRY FOR CRIMINALS LIKE THIS. ISHAQ HAROON, THIER MOTHER & SISTERS HAVE ALL BEEN CONVICTED TO VARIOUS CRIMES.BUT YET TEND TO TAKE HOLIDAYS 4-5 TIMES A YEAR, BIG MANSIONS IN PAKISTAN AND DUBAI, ALL MEMBERS OF THIS FAMILY STICK TOGETHER, AND DO GET AWAY WITH IT. I AM A RELATIVE TO THEM, LIKE A COMMENT SAYS, THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW. AS WE KNOW WHERE YOUR MONEY IS GOING INTO. ITS DAYLIGHT ROBBERY, NOT ONLY YOUR DEPOSITS BUT BURGLERY, THEY DO TEND TO SELL A LOT OF ITEMS AT CAR BOOT MARKETS WHICH ONE OF THEIR SISTERS DID RUN. MAYBE YOU MAY FIND YOUR BELONGINGS THERE!!!!

  10. I feel that if all us students that have been scamed stick together we will beat them.As you all know the saying “what goes around comes around!”
    watchdog has helped us all in a great way. Keep it up! They are running a Company “MYHOMEZ” thankfully i am no longer a victim to their scams, although i am also owed £600 for deposit & £270 for a boiler replacement in my flat i rented from them. I was bullied by a team of 9 men who including Ishaq Ayub (Drives a Lexus Green – Private Plated G15 ARK) Basharat ( Private Plate P 8ASH) Mohamed Ishaq so we know where our money is going on their lifestyles of the new gangster styles!

  11. So when no one will rent from PP or MyHomez what’s going o happen then? they would have to find someone to occupy they empty properties?? don’t you think so?? well i have a suggestion for them, its best if they turn empty properties into they very own family brothels, I’m sure then they could still make money from they own sisters and mothers (SICKFU**S)

  12. hey to all who commneted! yes it is true i have seen Ishaqs sister & wife running a car boot stall in leeds sunday market. shameless people who steal from others for their own lifestyles. I can not believe that they are running myhomez. I rented a room from them only to discover that it had been burgled before, as there was easy access for sneak in theives, after speaking to a collegue of theirs, was told it was something that i had to do as it was my belongings at risk. shameless CUNTS told me that there was no contents insurance on it. they still owe me £300. which i never dreamt of seeing again. I am aware of cars that they all drive, flashy lifestyles. i guess they wanted to compete with the big boys like Avtar’s! lets all hope that we have answers, we hope that watchdog does make it wothwhile in the eyes of the courts, they are criminals who up til now have been scaming students, are they still scaming students in myhomez? we do notice that they are no longer about. are they hiding at their forign mansions? low lifes are not the word…. stealing and harrassment is a serious crime isn’t it? ARE THEY ABOVE THE LAW!

  13. i’d feel sorry for these guys if all us students turned up at their house demanding our money, but scary thing is they’d get us all done by the police for harrassment.
    what do you rekon???

  14. YES I GUESS YOU ARE RYT! LOVE ,WE’LL ALL GET BANGED UP! BUT I’M SURE WE’D ALL LIKE TO KNOW WHERE THESE CUNTS LIVE…. HOW CAN THEY SLEEP KNOWING THAT THEY CHEATED MANY INNOCENT STUDENTS WHO HAD FOUND A WAY OF PAYING THE DEPOSIT! I WISH YOU ALL GOOD LUCK IN GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK! OR TEACHING THE FAMILY HOW TO BEHAVE, THE RUDENESS OF THE FAT UGLY CHAP:LOL WAS NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL WAS IT?

    IF ANYONE HAS ADDRESSES OF THESE CUNTS…
    HINT HINT.

  15. your 100% right Sam, these guys have sisters. Ishaq’s sisters are well known in headingley hyde park. as some of you will know. This is all a clever criminal network, where money has been launderd through family accounts! the fact is they do all enjoy holidays, the fact is that they have got mansions in pakistan & dubai. the fact is Mr Tariq (T4RAC) lol the plate means RuBBish in URDU! Lives up to his name Scum. the fact is that they are above the law, and have put so many lives in misery. the fact is Mr Ishaq & brother Haroon are both business partners & have part in myhomez. this is thier sister company, these are facts of the lifestyles of these scum. They have no feelings, & will carry on with their rude arrogant ways of life. The fact is Ishaqs Parents do recieve STATE BENEFITS even though they have a disclosed figure in Banks in Pakistan. It is a fact and i rellly do hope that they are punished for the hurt they have caused us all. may i wish you all the very best of luck! DON’T GIVE UP.! WE ALL HAVE WATCHDOG ON OUR SIDE!

  16. YOU PEOPLE WRITING ON HERE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH DEPOSIT ISSUES. YOU SPINELESS BRAINLESS MORONS. JUST JEALOUS ASIANS WHO HAVENT GOT A CLUE ABOUT LIFE AND HARD WORK YOU ARE ALL SAD TWA*TS WHO THINK YOUR CRAP COMPANIES WILL DO BETTER BY DISSING THESE PEOPLE. YOU HAVEN’T GOT A CHANCE YOU SADDOS. YOU HAVENT GOT A CLUE WHAT YOU ARE UP AGAINST. WATCHDOG ARE WANK*ERS CANT EVEN GET THIER FACTS RIGHT. WHAT YOU LOT DONT REALISE IS YOUR UP AGAINST PEOPLE WITH INTELLIGENCE NOT IGNORANT HALF BREEDS LIKE YOU LOT. CANT EVEN SPELL PROPERLY OR SPEAK PROPERLY

    .BY THE WAY IF ANY BODY WANTS A SAD BASTARD SAM26 email is s1ave8boy@aol.com. SAD PERVERTED LYING UGLY TWAT HE IS NEEDS TO GET A LIFE DAMN LIER. YOU PEOPLE NEED TO GO AWAY AND GET ON WITH WHAT YOU DO BEST BEING ARSE*OLES.

  17. Your right I am a pervert I am sick in the head that is why I go on about brothels all the time and having sex with my own mother. But you dont understand I am a total saddo this is the only way I can have any friends and I now have all these new friends on here all these asians who can write loads of lies and stuff like me. I also have james and louis and a well ugly ginger girl who wears glasses and jean and we are all friends and its so much fun writing on these sites it gives me something to live for in my oh so sad life. I can make so many lies up it is great im so thick you see but I would like to be your slave boy if you like guys who are sick perverts just email me. I have to go now because its time for jeremy kyle and it is the highlight of my sad little day. will be back to write some more lies soon. Did you like the one I wrote about providence robbing me they are sending the police to my house to investigate my allegations so then maybe the police man will be my friend to yippeee !

  18. Tony you chat crap. At least get your facts right you idiot. Its obvious all the people writing on here are nothing to do with deposits but either rival companies or complete idiots, Cant even speak or write proper english you need to get some life lessons but doubt they would have you. When you know your facts you qualify to write about people otherwise just keep your ugly mouth shut godamn idiot.

    Joe you fool everyone who rents a house knows they have to get their own contents insurance. You lot writing on here are thicker than thick is making me laugh its all so funny.

    The only sense the watchdog people has is to remove all allegations relating to my homez from their site because they realise the big sh*t people making allegations linking the companies are getting themselves into. Whereas all you ignorant idiots dont know the law but be very careful because the law knows who you are and where you live and your allegations make good reading to solicitors who like to count their pennies. This goes for all the stupid sites which have been set up.

    I know all you people all your addresses I could put it all on here but I know the law and I dont want prosecuting not like you idiots who have already landed yourselves in it. Read the dictionary defamation and libel section ; the written word is the sweetest evidence a court can have if the content of it is proven to be incorrect AND IT IS ALL TOTALLY INCORRECT.

  19. TUT TUT MR DAZ – ITS NO THREAT YOU NEED TO GET OVER YOURSELF! JUST GLAD TO SEE YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO REMOVE SOME OF THE COMMENTS WHICH WERE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ISSUE, STILL A FEW TO GO, BUT TIME WILL TELL.

    IF YOU WANT CREDIBILITY FOR THIS KIND OF SITE YOU HAVE TO REALISE YOU HAVE TO STICK TO THE FACTS NOT JUST LET IDIOTS RANT ON ABOUT GOODNESS KNOWS WHAT, ISSUES WHICH BEAR NO RELEVANCE AND TOTALLY DEVIATE FROM THE ISSUE AND AS YOU WILL HAVE NOTICED HAS RESULTED IN NO POSTINGS OF ANY RELEVANCE TO THE ISSUE JUST A LOAD OF PERSONAL ABUSE FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER RENTED A PROPERTY IN THEIR LIFE AT LEAST IT IS MAKING ME LAUGH.

    AS A LAST NOTE YOU WRONGLY INTIMATE I AM ANYTHING TO DO WITH PP OR TZ MY INTEREST IS OF A PURELY JOURNALISTIC MANNER. I REALISE YOU WONT PRINT THIS AS YOUR SELECTION IS BIASED BASED BUT UNFORTUNATELY THAT IS THE PRIVILEGE OF THE MEDIA THESE DAYS WHICH RESULTS IN MOST POSTINGS BECOMING MINDLESS DRIVEL MINE INCLUDED!

  20. Mr Kennedy, or David (because you’re the same person who posted the comment under the name ‘David’ – same IP idiot) – I haven’t removed any comments. I don’t do that. I don’t respond to threats from idiots.

    Secondly, your views are not journalistic. Journalists, and those interested in journalism, don’t write in caps like children, and they can spell.

    We all know who you are, by all means keep your drivel coming, but don’t insinuate that I have in any way removed comments because I believe them to be libellous.

    Twat.

  21. J KENNEDY Just from reading your post, its very clear that you are a faggot who represents PP & MyHomez.

    Soon or later BBC will nail your butt to the wall, and that’s when reality would hit you people. Its just amazing that people like you (PP & MH) have no self respect.

    By sending abusive and treating messages to Mr Daz would not help your sorry ass’s, but it would make it clear that you lot are a SHAMELESS FAMILY OF LS6

    The whole commiunty of Leeds is disgraced with the Zaman family, and still the father of Mr Tariq Zaman walks around LS6 wearing a suite? what a shameless moron!!!

    (Soon would be a website up to show Link bewteen MyHomez and PP)

  22. Hahahahahahaha!!!! Listen to J Kennedy (is your middle initial “F”, by any chance?) telling Daz how to get credibility for “this kind of site” you clearly know nothing of what the content of this site is about.

    It is a bit like watchdog, really…. exposes people and so called businesses for what they are. The only difference being that Mr Daz is not afraid to tell it like it is, and allows this space of his as a springboard for others to do likewise.

    As for the prat posting under the guise of David, your lack of legal knowledge is as obvious as your linking to the posting under J Kennedy. He whom speaks must first think. Obviously applies to everyone but you. Just like the law only appears to apply to certain individuals.

    Oh, and by the way you do not know ever poster’s address, you certainly do not know mine. You cannot derive an address from a single posting unless said address has been typed out or referred to for all and sundry to see. If you know so much, go on then have a look-see deep into your crystal ball and tell me who I am and where I live. I want my full name and full address. I’ll bet a penny to a pound you could not manage to even produce my local residential area, let alone any further personal details.

    In order to pursue any court action, you must first be able to provide the name and full address of the person you intend to sue. Until you can actually physically produce my name and residential address, and everyone else on here who has made a comment you happen to disagree with, there IS no case for libel, or defamation.

    In addition, the allegations appear to be far from incorrect. This company has been to court on several occasions I believe. And several cases have not ruled in their favour, have they? Libel and defamation. Indeed.

    It genuinely makes me laugh when people think they are more knowledgeable than they actually are and trip themselves up in a poor attempt to verify it.

    Now please do me and everyone around here using their LEGAL RIGHT of free speech (whether in the written or spoken word, by the way) the intense pleasure of fucking off, right back under the rock of which you had the bare faced audacity to crawl out from.

    I thank you kindly.

  23. Hey everyone, I want to thank Mr Daz for taking up our plight and supporting those of us screwed over by Providence and let down by the law.

    I just want to say though that I think everyone needs to keep a cool head when posting because we sort of need to rise above the criminals who have stolen our money and who do business in such a rude and aggressive way. This means being careful what you say (e.g. linking the family with brothels) and writing messages that don’t have fucker or twat as the main vocab. I know it’s the most frustrating thing…I want to scream and punch things when I think about the situation. It’s not just that I’m now minus £300 that annoys me, it’s the fact that these people have practically commited daylight robbery and gotten away with it. But remember guys, students (the main victims of this case) are intelligent people and I think we can think of better ways of arguing our point than by swearing or throwing around accusations of prostitution. In some ways they aren’t really relevant to the issue. The issue is that these people have seemingly spent money that should have either come back to us or gone to the landlord, and seem to have no remorse whatsoever.

    Anyway, that’s just my opinion. I hope people see this as a sensible suggestion and not an attack on anyone in particular because I think anyone speaking out for the cause is great. I just think it makes us look better as the real victims in all of this if people write intelligent posts that show posters like David aka J Kennedy as the idiots (and probably staff of PP) that they are.

    I can’t believe that David/J Kennedy has the audacity to threaten legal action on us! Not when Providence and Mr Zaman have so many unpaid CCJs against them! As if taking our money and running isn’t enough they now want to sue us for defamation. I think not.

  24. With thanks to ‘So Frustrated’ at last someone else has picked up on my one and only issue with this poxy site. At last a morsel of intelligence which, to date, has been totally lacking in contributors to this drivel.

    I have to say am a little concerned at ‘Sam26’ and his psychological state it makes quite disturbing reading as I am sure many will agree. Maybe a psychologist, psychotherapist could get to the bottom of your depravation.

    ‘Doneover’ you have no idea who or what I know so please dont under estimate me or over estimate yourself, if you think the postings/rantings on this site are constructive criticism of the subject matter and the issues involved it is quite obvious your lights are on but no-one is home.

  25. I’m getting a little tired of people posting comments trying to be someone else. As ‘J KENNEDY / DAVID’ keeps doing it, and his last comment was posted under a different name again (the twat) I’ve changed his name on his comments so that we all know it’s him, and what he’s said.

    Whenever you post on here buddy, your comments will be attributed to you, even the ones where you pretend to be the student, Sam.

    Keep ’em coming, your argument is quickly losing credibility.

  26. I didn’t write that comment for the benefit of J Kennedy/Providence Properties by the way. I certainly wouldn’t call this site poxy, I’d say it actually exposes quite a lot of truth about this whole situation. I just think that sometimes people need to express that more intelligently, that’s all.

    Mr Daz has obviously picked up on the fact that you and David are one and the same as you ahve the same IP address. And you’re probably the same as the people who have posted on other sites threatening legal action on those who tell the truth about this whole sorry matter.

    We’ll find a way to get by this eventually, even if it’s just putting the relevant people behind bars instead of getting our money back.

  27. QUOTE: “Doneover’ you have no idea who or what I know so please dont under estimate me or over estimate yourself, if you think the postings/rantings on this site are constructive criticism of the subject matter and the issues involved it is quite obvious your lights are on but no-one is home.!

    What’s the matter? Truth hurt? Did I say the comments were founded? Nope. Did I say contrctive criticism? Nope. You’re the one that is talking about lbel, yet you are the one whom is putting words into people’s mouths. You really are out of your depth. It’s pathetic.

    I see you have yet to tell me who I am or where I live. Avoiding the question and making empty threats are what a guilty person does best.

  28. they were all laughing about it when they moved into new location (Myhomez) thinking how easy it is to change name and location and get away from it all, but they did not know poeples voice is very strong, we all together can beat them, they are low life, lawless peoples, Beware of another name Khalid Zaman, He is doing all the work behind, Ishaq is one of their best friend and co owner , I got nothing against them but what they do, They have no shame the way they fiddle with law and make money from helpless needy peoples, better off without Myhomez and providance, Remember the name Mr Zaman and all the properties on Manor Drive leeds 6, thats where they also live, cheers
