I had to fire a letting agent after he “misbehaved” with (my) clients´money and all trust was lost. I had to quickly appoint another company to manage tenants.
There is no signed Agreement or T&C´s from agent, only a very simple letter instructing him some years ago: 10% commission, he will discuss any works or repairs over 100 pounds (which he did not), etc.
The agent now expects his conjured up “let only fee of 8%” for the duration of fixed-term or he will sue me.
Could he win?
He broke his own rules, I could not possibly trust him again, fired him, and we have no conditions that stipulate what is due if the landlord dismisses the agent or the agent resigns.
