A Swaffham estate agent has been arrested on suspicion of fraud and theft, following an investigation by this newspaper.
Our investigation into eHomes in June found landlords had allegedly not been paid rent and tenants' deposits had not been secured in protection schemes as required by law.
Landlords alleged they had been left thousands of pounds out of pocket by eHomes.
The firm's only director and sole shareholder is Victoria Steele.
The 43-year-old, of School Road, Holme Hale, near Swaffham, has not responded to requests for comment.
