Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

My 12 month tenancy is coming to an end once again. Last time it ended one of the tenants moved out and the other remained (moving a partner in, under a re-signed agreement). A new agreement was drawn up and any changes within the new agreement were initialed by the remaining tenant, but notably the agreement itself was not actually signed (agent incompetence)
The Letting agent used was awful, very slow, multiple mistakes and didn’t even ensure the resigned agreement was signed properly! Note: the tenancy agreement was signed properly first time round, but again there was agent incompetence and the only reason I used the same letting agent again was, because they were cheap to renew with and I thought the renewal should be fairly simple, even though once tenant moved out and one remained.
Where does this leave me as the Landlord now?
Should I just let it go on to a monthly rolling tenancy, or would I be better getting a new 12 month agreement properly signed up via a more competent agent (this is probably my preferred option), or would I be as well to just stick with the original agent for a renewal again, even though they performed so badly last time and could well do so again this time round.
