Beware of this realtor company

**Realtor - WARNING
Firstly this forum won't let me name the company, personally i think this is a poor response, this 'community' should be about helping expats not running scared of rouge companies. So if you want to know who the company is, just message me.
My original post with the name removed:
Watch out for this company, they rob you. Despite my contract clearly saying they were responsible for wear and tear they charged me for it. When I objected the kept all my deposit. And this happening a few days before I was leaving the country.
They've told me the contract wording in Arabic says they can keep it, that was a lie, I had it translated at work.
They told me I had to provide my civil ID (after I'd left the country)
They told me they could only pay it into a Kuwait Bank Account, again after I'd left the country.
They did everything they could to avoid paying me my money
They never returned a call or email
One of the staff even told me they do the same to to their own staff..
Eventually I got some of my deposit back, but they kept 125KD wear and tear, despite it was not in the contract.
Most of the alleged wear and tear was for furnishing in a worn condition when I moved in. During my time there I repaired their broken draws, door, extractor fan and put up with doors being permanantly closed, repeated power cuts, water leaks. i should have complained more but it usually fell on deaf ears. The building staff were fine. Its the management that are crooks
Keep clear of this bunch of thieves

This site IS about helping expats.  With that in mind, if defamatory or slanderous posts were allowed, would be exposed to lawsuits, thus risking it's continued ability to provide this platform for us all to benefit from.  That would help nobody.

You of course can tell others more details in private messages, as you correctly mention.  :)

Absolutely nothing slanderous in my post, also have all the evidence. I do see where are coming from, just don't agree with the approach. But I'm not a layer, just an expat trying to help others

Brian, I am pretty sure it is the norm here. I wonder if anyone has ever gotten their deposit back. They know the people can't stick around for much longer once they are about to leave and they are taking advantage of it.

HI, yes it probably is, but all I know for sure is that this bunch did it to me, and many others. So I have a personal grudge and know that through various social media I've got my message to over 600 people. Thats just the ones I know of, others I know have also shared my message. If I was still in Kuwait I'd be getting legal advice, but as we know, people leaving the country are an easy target

Thank you for the info Brian,
I shall keep it in mind for the future

its shocking the forum wont let you give the name of the company.

agreed, you'd think in ** realTOR  wouldn't be protected..
