not used him, but have used homeaway several times.

if you pay through their system, although it is more expensive than booking direct, your money is safe, and if the letter turns out to be bogus, you can get your money back.

most of their properties have reviews from past renters, ask them if it is safe to book with him.

of course, if he is a crook, the reviews could all be by him or his accomplices, but if that was the case past customers such as yourself would have reported it to homeaway and they are too concerned with their income stream to keep bogus properties on their site.

Basically it means if he doesn't file his accounts within 2 months of the notice being issued in the Gazette his company will be dissolved.
