An estate agency established a year ago in West London has been reported to the Advertising Standards Authority.

Collins & Wise Property Management has a single office in Southall above a hairdressing salon (pictured) and a website.

It was recently reported to the watchdog by a member of the public who challenged its claim within a listing on Zoopla that it was a member of The Property Ombudsman scheme (TPO).

After being contacted by the ASA, Collins & Wise Property Management agreed to update its listing on Zoopla, removing references to TPO.

But the company is a member of a redress service supplier, having recently joined the Property Redress Scheme.

The fledgling estate agency has a single director, self-styled entrepreneur and 35-year-old Prabdyal Attwall who also runs a courier company in Staines, Middlesex called HKA Transport. He is also listed as a director of a dissolved soft furnishing company called Fast Time Ltd.

Collins & Wise Property Management has no properties for sale on its website and 52 properties available to rent.
