I am unfortunately stuck with a horrendous letting agent, but have a great tenant.
The agent regularly pays late even up to 6 weeks after the tenant has paid. They never respond to emails or calls, are always argumentative when they do and most recently I have found that the tenants deposit is not being protected for 2 months now.
Every time I ask to leave they say they will have to evict the tenant or charge me ongoing fees. I have asked for them to let me deal with protecting the deposit and they say they can not hand it over unless I sign a new contract.
The contract says nothing about when they should pay me so not sure if being late is a breech of contract but it does say the deposit will be protected. Am I legally allowed to leave them and keep the tenant fee free.
