New electrical checks and safety standards for Landlords8:59 AM, 15th January 2020

I have a tenant that is refusing to pay their rent directly to my bank account. He is paying through our letting agent who we do not have a managing agreement with. The tenant insists on not dealing with us and the letting agent just pay the rent on the tenant’s behalf.
My question is could this end up at the end of the contract 1) where the agent demanding back the rental payments claiming they were made in mistake; 2) the tenant disappearing at the end of the lease.
The tenant so far refused to meet me and I erroneously signed a lease on what looks like a fake job reference. Has anyone come across in a similar situation, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
