Serviced Office Company MLS has received more bad press this week as news of unhappy evictees from closing West End Great Portland Street and Warren Street businesses centres circulates amongst the serviced office industry.
It is rumoured that the economically-minded serviced office company may be facing legal action from clients who are angry after receiving notification of the evictions by email rather than in person and having been given less notice than stated in their contracts. The ex-tenants, who are all small business clients, are also in danger of not getting their deposits back.
The closures come after subsidiary MLS Business Centres Management was put into liquidation by MLS Group because of a drop in demand for semi-serviced accommodation which the company had specialised in.
The upset comes as further bad news for the serviced office section of MLS Group which has staged a large operations scale-down of its UK serviced office business centres over recent months after reports of money troubles in 2008.
