The Leeds letting agent, the Student Property Shop, was featured on BBC News this week in a news report that is also available on the BBC website. Students have been lobbying outside of the office of the Student Property Shop, trying to get their deposits back from the previous occupants of the premises.
When asked, the Student Property Shop denied any connection with the previous occupants of their office, Providence Properties.
Watch the video and see what you think. The report closes with the narrator stating that Trading Standards are now investigating the Student Property Shop for a possible fraud concerning the £70,000 in deposits that the students have yet to be returned.
