I rented my 6 bedroom house to a company I knew nothing about. The estate agent had them checked, they were OK. I wanted to meet them so a man (Derrick) came. I asked him what he did for the company he said he was hired to meet tenants. This sounded odd.
I also did not like his fake smile but my wife was pressing me to go on holiday the next day. The agent phoned and said” well”, so I said OK but I want rent guarantee and legal insurance. The company paid, I gave keys and the first two months rent was paid. We went on holiday, £1,000 was paid instead of £3,033 and after that nothing. I argued with insurance rent guarante, they did not want to pay as was not an ast but a company let. Finally they paid £1,400.
Luckily in the contract there was a 6 month break clause so now at the end of month I’m going to court to get them out hopefully, but I know Courts always lean towards tenant. The company even divided two rooms into 4, I had just spent a fortune putting interlinked smoke detectors and self closing fire doors. I can see through front windows where they have put up partitions, the garden is overgrown, fence down and who knows what horrors await me inside.
This governement is backing tenants, God help us all bye allen from now on. I’ll always use rent guarantee and legal cost insurance from now on.
