I was contacted by Ready Rental Property to list my property with the "On Holiday Group" for a fee that included two guaranteed weeks bookings. I duly paid the fee in early December 2008 completed the requested paperwork and handed over the keys to their agent. I was promised the listing would be active within three weeks in time for the summer 2009 advertising program.
Despite several emails and numerous telephone calls (mostly unanswered, and when answered never anyone of authority there) the property remained unlisted.
I requested my fee back by email and telephone call and unsurprisingly received an email with a link to "HOLIDAYNIGHTS" part of the On Holiday Group at the end of April 2009. The link did not allow the property owner access to the booking calender for management of the property and there was not the two guaranteed weeks booked within the period May-October 2009 allowed by the site.
On further investigation I discovered that my fee had been paid to a company called DAY COOPER ADAMS LIMITED. On further investigation of this company I have found that their authorisation has been suspended by THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE in London. You will find a link on Google search to an article by Tony Hetherington of This is Money (readers champion Daily Mail) who alleges that this is a scam operation run by conmen. The owner and sole director of Day Cooper Adams lives in Fuengirola, a former director of the company lives in Mijas Costa a former address of RRP. Both these directors have been involved in other companies that have had the same fate as Day Cooper Adams. Both these directors and companies have ties to Rochdale, Lancashire.
On checking the Companies Register at Companies House, There is a company registered as READY RENTAL PROPERTY LIMITED, their status with Companies House, is Proposal to Strike Off, two of the directors addresses are Rochdale, Lancashire.
I would suggest that as a property owner you should not be comfortable with any organisation that have proven links with Day Cooper Adams and their directors. While I am not suggesting that the ON HOLIDAY GROUP have any ties with Day Cooper Adams I believe they should be made aware of the link with RRP. As far as I am aware the ON HOLIDAY GROUP are a reputable company but I assume they are contracted to forward the rentals for your property to RRP this is addition to any fees you have already paid RRP for listing your Property.
On the past history of Day Cooper Adams I would not be happy that the rental returns of my property will be paid to RRP.
I suggest that you check where your fee was paid, if you are unhappy with the result reclaim through your credit card company or bank. If you have had the same problems as me, then complain and advertise the fact, as otherwise other innocent property owners will be fleeced by these organisations
