none. im not a child. cringe.
"What do we make of that Mr. Pussington?That's right, we're furious!!!"
I LOVE HOW HE COMPARED THE GUY TO MARK BUT HE LOOKS LIKE CHRIS EVANS LMAOOO
Oh my god he straight up threatened joe in the street
Please take dog the bounty Hunter with you when people get aggressive, THAT WOULD BE PHENOMENAL.
Sterling De Vere will be back on Spare Room in due course. It's not in Spare Room's interest to ban letting agencies. How else are they going to make money? 90% of letting agencies are shit - so they have to turn a blind eye. They've booted Sterling off for now as a token gesture. But when things have cooled down they'll be back on.
Aw the CEO is actually quite cool. Handled that well and clearly actually cares about doing a good job and taking action when its needed
Ok but what good is a new code of conduct when it's been proven they don't follow existing codes of conduct? Sorry to be the wet blanket.
You star! I Thank you and the Heavens for your energy and blood hound devotion and humour to justice! You definatly have your own blend of super powers! Hero's come in all shapes and shirts! You are one! 😄xxx
Great video exposing crooks with humour 👍
why is it not available on All4?
appreciated the bach prelude no1
she could move in with me ? Hope she don't mine sleeping with me !
She probably does and finds the whole idea of it repulsive, as do I, and by extension most other women
The CEO actually seems like a decent bloke, fair enough👍
Regulations are useless there's someone to enforce them; and who wants to be a big bad sheriff when silence is so profitable!?
11:46 Haha I could fit into these homes no problem. I'm like 5'4
The amount of laws broken is absurd, especially involving threatening and potentially violent behaviour.
Joe and Mark have some balls - love it
If your illegal and need cheap housing
An illustrative example of how corporate self regulation does not work. There should also be no surprise that a company will continue to take liberties with its consumer base, up to the point where their profits are at risk. Watch dogs and accountability programs will always be fighting a losing battle, even as funding sources dry up, and thus the price of an honest service remains absolute vigilance. Sometimes, all you have left are the clowns.
WOW a company that actually care's about Not only them selves the advertiser's as well as customer's. Thanks
Sterling De Vere a massive money laundering scheme
the disgusting reality of the UK: randomers living together because they can't afford to be adults.
You do realise.. that happens in the US as well?... What rock do you live under not to know about roommates....
Was there any need for the homophobic comments?!?!
yes sterling devire go on lad get em!!
Thanks Joe! You are my hero!Stirling de Vere are truly awful, went to see some properties with them last year and the same situation as the lady in the vid- properties were completely different to the pictures and the staff were so so so rude when confronted.Renting in London is a joke.
"I'm a bit frightened of you... what do you want from me?" me @ anyone I meet
i had a room with these guys for 3 months. exactly same happened to me almost went to court to get my deposit back. crooks
"My lucky number!" 😂😂😂😂😂
I fuckin love that sparkly shirt
They’re acting like gangsters and they’re a lettings agency. Tells you everything about who they are.
This show is fire
Who the fuck pays upfront for stuff. Learn people, learn.
People who are pressured into buying an apartment because they're scared of losing out on the best they can get? Empathy, Sheila, empathy!!
0:26 Pretty ironic and cowardly to see this effeminate gay presenter protected from people making fun of his sexual orientation, yet he's OK with making fun of another person's natural looks.
Stop looking for things to be offended by, Barrio. Don't be a snowflake
Love Joe Lycett, so entertaining. For the record I found a house share through Spare Room nearly a year ago and its been brilliant, private landlord, no agency involved and it has been great 😁
Joe another fantastic review my friend keep them coming I really do feel that we need a Gi Joe like you in Northern Ireland to do something similar way similar to this to catch some off these mother F****** out.... keep it up brother .
She handed over how much!?!?! 😳
Who does these muppets think they are, the mafia?
yo who were those thug employees???? come try that shit in Texas.
This is a terrific public service. Great work.
“ a Bedsit in croydon” and then shows a screenshot from the show ‘Deadly Class’ I see you
Why are all letting agents such cunts?
"Oh, some baba ganoush!" 🤣😆🤣😆!
Mark is my favorite
Next is Cityrooms??
This show is just fantastic!
This show seems so rigid and robotic...
Bullied into paying for the luxury of being imprisoned in a death trap...
being at home with his wife. Pls could you help him come out as he's so far in the closet he's in fucking NARNIA. sing if you're glad to be gay Tommy Robinson. ✌🏻💌
He's already out of the closet you mong, he's bisexual.
This makes me so happy I was a victim/customer of Sterling de vere. Mould on the ceiling, aggressive members of staff, broken smoke alarms, refused to replace broken fridge, overcrowded houses and that was only part of it. Thank you Joe and channel 4 you have made my day
This woman has a copy of my life.
Stirling de Vere are a huge scam, definitely to be AVOIDED by all.
Really, 'Joe Lycett's Got Your Back' is just a montage of different cases for why we should end capitalism Power to the workers, and landlords can fuck off
India has Karl RockBlighty has Joe Lycett
I never knew what this program was about, great stuff
Sterling class wankers mate! Fair play ;)
Love this show but How does joe Lycett not get in trouble ?
Has he done any items about MLMs?
you can't block another vehicle in, you can report them to the police for that atleadst
pretty sure if you "fat shamed" a woman, people would be outraged
@Damon Albarn Angrily Playing His Melodica also my point wasn't whether or not it's ok to comment on someone's appearance. I'm saying it was ok to "fat shame" a man.Also yes I am lanky, because I am not lazy and keep myself fit.
Yep, because somebody else's weight is not yours to comment on. And if you think it's okay to talk shit about anybody about their appearance, unless it's justified, then I really think you're a bit of a sket. If somebody called you a lanky, insecure, virginal white boy, you'd be very offended. I can tell
2:15 what's the movie called ???
Why did the first chick give them 1800 if shes only paying 600 a month?
They pressured her into paying for the first 3 months
Best thing Channel 4 have done since Games Master
We allready know they have bought star/comment bots and or ppl to write on many accounts, there is a big buisness for this even on youtube
Channel 4 faggots!
Suck it up snowflake.
I love seeing bosses so pissed. It's amazing.Edit: They kinda just harrassed Joe too.
How long has Joe had his own show? I've only ever seen him as a guest on other shows.Very funny lad, got a good laugh from this :)
@Will This person does. He's had a show since the beginning of this year Garry, :)
Really, 'Joe Lycett's Got Your Back' is just a montage of different cases for why we should end capitalismPower to the workers, and landlords can fuck off
Hooded thugs, nice...
look on gumtree for a room no letting fee
@Speaking Truth good luck with that.
M J ikr, I’m signing my next contract the day after they are scrapped hah
@Speaking Truth thanks for that. good news .and about time ?
M J letting fees are being scrapped in a few weeks anyway
This is the tip of the iceberg. Renting in the UK is absolutely fucked at the moment.
FYI it is illegal to intentionally block another vehicle in a space like that
So this entire show is just joe harassing receptionists.
so cowboy Builders can scam you off is wrong with the working class you don't deserve human rights
wtf joe, they seemed like actual thugs! good on you for exposing these fuckwits
It's not often you get a CEO so down to earth, he was walking to work and was dressed casual & he was actually really kind... 🤔 If only all CEOs were like this.
This show is such a mess. No wit in the heat of the situation, minimal pay off for the gotcha moment. No resolution, no solution, guests no one gives a fuck about. And worst of all is the tone is trying to go down that investigative, mischievous, voice of the people vibe; but really it’s just predictable main stream garbage. Why doesn’t he look into channel 4s dealings, I bet there’s some nasty shit he could dig up.
Jim, your opinion isn't fact, because I for one, care a whole fucking lot about Kathy Burke, a guest on this show.
Joe you are scrumptious in your ridiculous shirt.
I do like the format of this show. It's like televised protests. Takes me back...
Lycett fighting the good fight
I do feel very sorry for the people that work there imagine this happens and your just the lady behind the desk not having a clue what’s going on lol
ceo looks like Mark Sheppard! :D hello crowley!
Rupert is actually kinda nice
keep the good work, amazing
"It's tense. We might be killed, but I'm really excited." 😆
Haha, Bless him 🙂
Enjoy your multiculturalism.
We will. Suck it up snowflake
Let's not also forget that 3rd party companies used by many agencies are another source that need to be eliminated. I lost my deposit due to a replacement tenant pulling out at the last minute . We were already moving out had given 2 months notice and the terms of the break clause meant we were still legally required to pay the rent even tho the replacement tenant had passed all checks/earnt more than 15k above the 30k minimum requirement p/y to rent the property but he was not allowed to continue with the process even tho he showed proof he was actively paying off a CCJ and not in any major debts what so ever. Ended up leaving me and the person I was living with effectively a grand out of pocket. Of course the agency don't have to compensate us based on the lack of communication in the form of no updates via email or calls over the 4 + weeks it went on for even tho a reference check and credit check usually only takes 3 days. I was then told by the agency that I would have to take the complaint out with our rental company Ludlow Thompson and Vericheck themselves as two seperate enquiries. Again both parties able to ditch any responsibilty. Luckily we were then able to sign a withdrawal agreement in order to get the fuck out of the flat! What a joke of a country we live in where most of these companies and landlords are allowed to fuck over the tenants. Thank god I live in Glasgow now... MORAL OF THE STORY IS, WATCH OUT FOR *VERICHECK*! ALWAYS BE PESSIMISTIC OF EVERY DETAIL IN CONTRACTS! + ALL SIDES OF THE STORY. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT BULLSHIT THEY ARE GOING TO TRY AND PULL !
How did that end up causing you to lose a deposit? Did you stop paying the rent after the replacement tenant fell through...although it sounds crazy that you would be required to keep paying if no new tenant came in after giving a whole 2 months notice...unless you were moving out before a 6 month / 12 month tenancy was up and the agents had put in the contract that you would have to keep paying for the remaining months or until a new tenant came along. Still fairly harsh though, things happen and people might need to move somewhere and a 2 month notice is more than reasonable.I think referencing and credit checks are getting harsher, many agents ask for guarantors even from people in what would be considered decent circumstances...decent job, low debts and so on. But still that's not enough for some agents/landlords and they will refuse people or ask for guarantors that have loads of savings or a really high income. What I hate the most is the charges agents make for referencing. They charge an agency fee for their work drawing up contracts whatever else is involved in advertising a property - even though it really should be the landlord paying this, as in what other scenario do you have to pay an extra charge to be allowed to buy a product or service in the first place! Agency fees are charged once you agree to rent a property. But the referencing/credit check fees are charged up front, and there isn't a refund if you are turned down. So you are effectively paying to be assessed for your suitability to rent a property, against criteria that aren't known to you as they will be kept confidential by both the referencing company and the landlord who will both have their own threshold as to what is a suitable tenant i.e. if a referencing company describes a tenant as risky that's based on their own interpretation of the data they gather on the applicant, and regardless of the result you still pay. £100+ seems to be the typical price for referencing checks in my experience, and most of that will be profit for the agent as the services that do the checks charge far less - many let agents pay a monthly subscription for unlimited checks so really it could cost the agent a few pounds. I don't see how they should be allowed to profit from that if they refuse an applicant - who has effectively paid out for nothing except being told no. Yes for almost every refusal they would allow someone to be a tenant with a guarantor but not everyone knows someone that would pass the checks or be willing to do it. And people that are most likely to be turned down after such a check will be those with a lower income or debts who will be affected the most by paying out £100 for nothing.
I don't understand. Joe Lycett is a celebrity, right? Wouldn't potential scammers recognise his voice on the phone, or his face when they meet him in person - and realise they're being fooled?
I think he's relatively low profile. I think a lot of comedians can get away with not being recognised in everyday society after they've been on tv. Though there is a clip from this show where one of the receptionists from an airliner (easyjet I think) recognises him and asks for a selfie
Why are middle easterners so aggressive? This wouldn't have happened if it were actual British people running this establishment, then again it wouldn't be as scammy either if that were the case. Every country I've lived in certain people from certain regions are incredibly violent and aggressive (yet noticing is the real crime, I've been told).
How can you tell they were middle eastern? They were pretty fucking blurry looking.
this content is dog shit
"Behind the scenes with MC big beat"I suppose you're not very self critical.
What do you want from me 😂
Will someone please bring Joe Lycett to the US already??? Please DO NOT have someone else, as in an American do a version of his show here, he is the one and only! With all the crap that goes on here, Joe would never run out of ideas. We need Joe too!!
