Complaint Review: Hammer Properties
Hammer Properties Huntcrown Ltd PURPORTING TO BE RATING CONSULTANTS AND SURVEYORS. ACTUALLY THEY ARE DESPICABLE DISGRACEFUL APPALLING RIP OFF COWBOYS. DO NOT USE THEM. THEY PREY ON SMALL BUSINESSES FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH GAIN. Ilford Ilford - London
*Consumer Comment: Also been ripped off by HAMMER properties
How they operate:-
One of their ‘surveyors’ will cold call you, telling you that they have successfully managed to reduce several businesses (the same as yours) rates in your area. He will guarantee a reduction in your rates and a refund. He will tell you that there is no fee to pay until your claim is successful. Obviously implying that you will pay nothing until you achieve the reduction and refund. It sounds good, you will believe him. He will take a deposit of £100 over the phone and still advise you that nothing more will be payable until your claim is successful.
They submit something to the Valuation Office, which doesn’t actually mean anything. When they then receive an acknowledgement from the VO they then take another £500 out of your account without bothering to contact you in any way. Check out their own website and their own complaints policy, it’s quite amusing actually. Their idea of your claim being successful is when the VO post out an acknowledgement, it means absolutely nothing at all. Nothing. Yet on the back of this, they steal £500 from your bank account or credit card.
They are an unscrupulous and disgusting company. I am dealing with it, and I am not going to let it lie until I get my money back. I am suing them and I will let you know how I get on.
I hope you have not already been sucked in by these cowboys, if you have I will help you all I can. If they have contacted you please please do not fall for their lies. I really do not know how these people manage to sleep at night.
