Can letting agents sign tenancy agreements for landlordsMake Text Bigger
Being fairly new to the BTL market I wondered if anyone could answer a question that is troubling me please?
My wife and I purchased a property in Sheffield a few months ago, and as we live near the south coast handed it over to a letting agent for them to fully manage. To be fair they found us a tenant very quickly and we agreed on a short term six months tenancy agreement.
Now comes my problem, when we asked if they wanted to send down the tenancy agreement for us to sign, they stated that this was not necessary as they had signed it on our behalf. We also have a few other properties and in all other cases the letting agents have always called us in to there offices or forwarded the relevant paperwork on to us for signing.
My main concern is that I have never come across this before and also is this practice legal?
Keep up the good work, my wife and I find your site a real gold mine of very usefull information.
