What-ever happened to the Rent Team?

IT IS a question that they have been asking in Harlow for a month or so now and it may well be a question they will be asking in Thurrock.

On Friday night, a number of people were seen to remove all the fixtures and fittings from the lettings agency based in Orsett Road, Grays.

A member of the public happened to be passing by and was told by a person removing furniture that the office was now closed.

Last month the Rent Team in Harlow went into administration, leaving many landlords stating that they were collectively out of pocket to the tune of £250,000.

They have had meetings with the local MP and have reported matters to the police.

The Rent Team in Harlow is, according to companies house, run by Sanjit Alangh from an address in Basildon. Anyone visiting his home address in Tempest Mead, North Weald will see a note on the window stating that: “The family have nothing to do with what has occurred to the Rent Team in Harlow. The note helpfully leaves Sanjit’s mobile phone as well as the details of the administrators.

It is unknown whether what has happened to the Rent Team in Harlow, has had a knock on effect on the Rent Team in Grays.

According to companies house, the Rent Team in Grays is run by Sanjit’s brother, Jaz Alangh from an address in Basildon. YT also understands he lives in Tempest Mead in North Weald.

YT went to the house but there was reply. We also rang the office number but the voice-mail was full.

The Grays office was open for nearly eighteen months.

YT contacted the portfolio holder for Housing, cllr Val Morris-Cook and the council itself to ask if they were aware of the situation but had not replied at the time of publication.
