We have an interesting situation and I would greatly value the advice of Property118 readers.
Our property has five bedrooms. A few months ago we had four tenants, all new at the time. Nothing wrong so far, however …
Recently we found out that the managing agent installed a fifth tenant in our property for 2 weeks whilst another property he was managing and/or renovating was being completed.
We were not informed by the managing agent, our permission was not sought and no offer of financial compensation was made even though they were charging the tenant.
What do you think are the legal, moral and financial issues this situation poses?
Needless to say they are not acting as our managing agent at this point!
