Wonder if you might give some advice on where to go next with this.
I looked at an apartment in TST before Christmas, and it was just right for my needs. It was being renovated quite extensively but the agent seemed helpful and genuine and explained that the place would be ready by the time I got back to HK from a break in England.
To secure the place I put down half the deposit required and signed a contract, which stipulated that I would be refunded if the Owner decided not to rent the place. After a delay in the renovations I was told the Owner was no longer interested in renting.
This wasn't a problem for me, as I was prepared for a let down at this point and ready to find something else. However since then my agent has repeatedly promised to pay the depoit into my account but failed to do so.
I'm hoping there's a way round this without having to go to a Tribunal or whatever the process here is. I would go round and speak directly to the agent but she is in China apparently. I called the branch of Circle Realty where she works and they confirmed she was still with the company.
