UK Total Maintenance…. What do YOU Think?

I received and email inviting me to apply for an exclusive 12 month “contract” to service 475 rented houses in TF postcode (It would cost me £2200 for this “guaranteed” work). I would be required to carry out PAT Tests, Legionella tests, and Smoke alarm tests. UK Total Maintenance have a fancy Website offering many support services to Landlords… Have a look for their website. “UK Total Maintenance ENG Ltd”

UK Total Maintenance Eng Ltd

I did this, I also found another website (Follow this link!:)

  1. Do not touch UK Total Maintenance . They will fleece you of £2200 and will not provide you with any work even though you sign a contract

    1. Sorry I’ve been late in approving this comments – I get a lot of SPAM I have to trash!

      Yes UK Total Maintenance – UK Total Scam! Do NOT touch them – Spread the word!

    2. This happened to my partner last year, have you tried to take them to court? We have sent a CCJ so far

  2. Do not touch them!!! They stole £2,200 from us. We tried to take them to court but think they have re named as combined home solutions! Thieves

  3. I’ve just looked up “UK Total Maintenance” using Google to see if there is anything new on them… and I see from Companies House:

    Company status
    Active — Active proposal to strike off

    So, it looks like they have probably started another company up – I guess with same scam…
    I looked up on the name “Total Maintenance” on Companies House Website… I got 37 matches!

    So from that, I have to say “UK Total Maintenance Limited – NOT to be confused with 36 companies with similar sounding names”….. (many of which no longer exist – but even so…)

    I tried searching for “M***** ******” (listed as Secretary of UK Total Maintenance Ltd) – I found several people by this name – one in Perth (born 1985) – This company is called “UK TMA LTD” – It is in “Real Estate” – and is ALSO waiting to be struck off…. From this company, I found another interesting name “Joshua Mark LAZARUS” – try looking for that name on Companies house – and see what YOU think !

    (not to be confused with persons of the same or similar name)
    I have no idea where all this is going… I’m just adding my 5 penn’eth….

  4. Still on-going.
    I believe they’ve re-named under ‘Nationwide Homeserve’ and rubbing the same scam stay sharp!

    1. That’s who has just approached me with 535 houses in FY postcode needing gas cover!

      1. These guys have just done me for 1250
        They are very cleaver through to the last 3 , now speak with a contracts manager , now speak with the main md , had about 1.1:2 hours speaking on the phone with 3 different guys all with Glasgow accents , I got do 31st March 2020 , hope this just helps someone else,

  5. Just been approached by same company I think
    Calling themselves Nationwide Homeserve Ltd
    535 properties in FY postcode costing 2250 for first years contract, expected earnings 50-100k in 1st year
    Was about to go ahead, thanks guys you are all the best!!!
    Bloody villains should be jailed!

  6. The accommodation address is a virtual office and they are up to their old tricks with a different name. I have contacted them asking for my money back to which I’m waiting for a reply. Won’t be holding my breathe!

    M******* or M**** **** was the very young director last time but with this one it’s a different name. The same voices when you call them but using different names. There’s still an Alex though. With UK Total Maintenance there was Liam, Steve, William, Greg, Gary, Chris, Jamie, David and Alex. Now there’s a Jonathan!

  7. Update:
    I have just received an email from someone called M****** *******. He says these “scammers” have Stolen His Identity and this is causing him greate problems. If this is true, then it seems nothing bothers them – just ripping people off whichever way they can!

    Giving him the benefit of the doubt – and my Sympathy if this is true – I have removed his name from these posts. I would appreciate it if nobody were to repeat the name on this forum, otherwise I will have to block/delete your post.

  8. Gas engineer scammed for 2250 this year Durham area been in touch with other trades all over the UK why can’t these this bastards be stopped they’ve been reported all over.You re right it’s Nationwide Homeserve Glasgow cheers hope this saves sum more lads Bill.B

  9. I have had the same but they are now called UK Maintenance Team the want £2250 for 470 propertys in the DY postcode don’t fall for it

  10. Thanks for comments. They have just contacted me about the same contract. They want £2220 as upfront fee. However; thought of checking them before going into this bottomless pot.
    Thanks once again. I am not going to waste my time with these blood thirst money scammers.

  11. I’ve just received the following email:

    Dear Mr Sparks,

    If you recall I contacted yourself respect of my name being brought into this fraud case on your website, and you made the decision to remove my name.

    As much as this is progress, unfortunately I am still receiving problems from this, as my name is still associated with this company therefore I am still receiving very aggressive contact from random people across the country due to your forum.

    I have been contacted of recent from the police and believe arrests have been made and investigations have progressed, but I all I really care about is clearing my name and stopping these horrible messages and contact I am getting. I would greatly appreciate if this forum is removed as I have been advised by the police to contact yourself on this. I do not care if you make other forums regarding what they are doing, but I would like to request that any thing associated with me, Including that company name is taken down, as this has made my life a living hell.

    Kind regards
    <<< . Either this is from a "victim of fraud" or it's not... Either way, this blog is staying active to warn off other victims.

    1. I just checked Companies House again…
      Their Accounts are overdue (Due 15 December 2018). Their Confirmation Statement is also overdue (Due 14 March 2018) and there is an “Active Proposal to Strike off” – However it seems that each year, this is proposed and each year there is an “objection to strike-off” received. It could be that there is “legal action”taking place – I don’t know – I’m not a Lawyer – I am an Electrician and I don’t know how these cases turn…

  12. Hiya…

    Just reading through this thread and I believe our business has been that latest victim of these scumbags posing as ‘UK Maintenance Team’ . We are a fairly new company so naively thought the opportunity couldn’t be passed up to carry out Gas safety checks, legionella checks in our ME Postcode, so after a telephone ‘interview’ with Paul Quinn and contracts read and signed we transferred over £1250 out of £2500 for an admin fee under the pretence that we had 5 new clients to meet within days, and 540 properties to look after over the next 12 months. Surprisingly we have had no proper contact with said company since Monday 23rd March.

    Sorry for the essay… I have exhausted all telephone numbers and emails that I have for them. I have also tried to contact the supposed ‘client’ to absolutely no avail. I mean this could all be a massive coincidence with all this Coronavirus pandemic going on .. but really!?!

    Its really concerning as we have a young family with a new baby due in 4 weeks and we are down £1250 down!! I am going to contact Police Scotland on the advise of trading standards and see what other avenues I can exhaust to try and get our money back.

    Any advice/ help would be greatly appreciated!


    1. No advice I can give other than report to the Police – and then join the queue. I smelled a rat before I gave them money – and then posted this on my site to help others – unfortunately – People often only find this after they have been Scammed. Paul Quinn: I have a feeling that was the guy I spoke to…

    2. I also got a call from them and like yourselves are a fairly new company was promised 540 properties in ct area also delt with Paul Quinn I paid the full amount upfront robbing cu***.
      I called the Scottish police force today and reported it to them waiting for a call from them on Wednesday hopefully get some sort of answers.
      Have you reported it ?

  13. We were scammed in August 2019 for £2250. This company has 9 names that I know of. We were done by HomeFix (National). Don’t confuse with kids if other HomeFix companies that are legit and active. HomeFix National. They started company in May 20s19 and in October 2019 they changed name to HOMEFIX-UK LTD.

    They are still active. We raised a ccj against them. But can’t enforce as it seems that all of the companies they are linked to are all registered by a formation company. The formation company have used their contact details and all post is being sent via the formation company. The actual address of the scam companies I have traced back to Glasgow. However that address is also a serviced office. The telephone numbers 0141 ….. is a virtual office number and could be answered from anywhere but registered to a serviced office in Wenlock Street in London. The formation company address they used is also registered to Wenlock Street!

    As it all leads back to Glasgow the ccj cannot be enforced as valid only for UK not Scotland. We can raise another application to request the ccj is enforced in Scotland but another fee, and if we only have the address of a serviced office, is it worth it?

    May be more but looks like they have been running at least since 2014 and they are running at least 4 active companies at any one time and several are awaiting being stuck off, as the new ones pop up.

    Director of HomeFix National and Home-UK limited doesn’t seem to exist.

    We have contacted Companies House to register the scam and that the company is acting unlawfully but we have not heard back.

    We have also recorded the scam to action fraud and I’d recommend that everyone affected does too as the more reports the greater chance they will investigate with the police. When I spoke to them they had no other reports they could link but if they did they could move to police for investigation.

    Absolute pond feeders! And no one can touch them. It’s unbelievable that there is nothing that we can do to stop these guys fleecing people.

  14. Unfortunately, I got hoodwinked by the same scam. Just before Christmas they were Directline Works Ltd. Trying to reclaim some of my £1150 “contract fee” but the UK Maintenance Team number is now not in use. I also had Paul Quinn as my point of contact. I even did a legionnaire awareness through them! So much effort for relatively little gain. I would love to know what their name is now.

  15. So oddly enough I know the person who was the director MH and one I read through these comments with someone saying that we can’t post his name and stuff because he explained he is innocent. Well I’ll tell you right now he’s not, I went to uni way him and and that’s when he first started working there and he knew exactly what he was doing and ended up being the front man for the guy but still knew what was happening. Not only that I can tell you he’s on the run. He has sold everything house, car etc and just bought a one way plane ticket.

  16. Hi
    I was unfortunately scammed by these people but the company was called HOMEFIX UK. I paid them after a very convincing 3 interviews £2250 and then after days/weeks/months of calling them i received nothing.
    They are now called UK MAINTENANCE TEAM, with a similar logo and same phone number funny that. I have spoken to the police directly as i work in some police stations and they just advised to report to ACTION FRAUD. I have tried debt collectors but as the company has ceased trading and they use virtual trading addresses their is nothing they can do.

    Report them to as many people as possible and platforms they are perfetic selfless horrible people that will destroy lives without a blink of an eye.

  17. Done the same as most others went ahead with the company u* m********** t*** paid an upfront fee off £2250 and struggling to get hold of anyone. The name Paul Quinn was the one. Has anyone got their money back? So infuriating how these scammers can get away with it time after time!

    1. Yes we got our money back after 8 months. We got it back from the Bank though after raising a complaint and then referring to the financial ombudsman.

  18. HI
    We have just found this website, after paying out similar sums to future property works. We have been dealing with Tony Hill ‘contracts manager’. Anyone else? And how did you go about getting the money back?

        1. All comments have to be approved by me, (to filter out the spam comments which turn up from time to time) – hence the delay with your posts appearing.

          1. Hi

            If anyone else has been scammed by Future Property or a similar scam, myself and Tony Perks have been speaking – please get in touch with us. I’ve reported to action fraud UK, the Sun Newspaper and the banks, the more times this is reported the more likely we are to get our money back. Thanks

  19. Hi. It looks like we have been scammed too. Tony Hill is the person we have been dealing with and now we cannot contact them. Did you find out if anyone else is involved. Can you contact me please? We are in Lincoln.

    Thanks Tony Perks.

  20. Hi

  21. Looks like I’ve been scammed by future property works as well. I was beginning to get suspicious. Tony Hill was the person that was dealing with me too.
    I can’t believe this.

  22. Hi All,

    We were appraoched by what seems to be the same company, name is Countrywider repairs.

    Overing 350 properties for a fee of £3500 upfront amount of £2250 then the other part 6 months later.

    So thankful we found this blog otherwise we would have sent them the money over!!

    1. I don’t know of this company, but from the comments on this site, I would say that *any* company asking for money to be given “exclusive” work in a given area is 99% likely to be a Scammer! I guess this applies to all types of service, not just property maintenance. It just re-enforces the idea to distrust every other business until you fully check them out – Especially if they are asking you for money upfront.
