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

So, the short of this is, my partners rented property is being repossessed. She passed on information that the mortgage was in arrears following a solicitors letter to the letting agent who told her ‘we will freeze payments to the owner, and investigate’.
She heard nothing until last month when another letter came and informed her of a pending court date and that she had to submit documents to apply for a stay of execution (I think that’s right). Again she let the letting agents know and has heard nothing.
She has been granted 2 months to find a new arrangement, which isn’t the problem, however….she has contacted the letting agent AGAIN, letting them know the state of play and how the solicitors acting on behalf of the mortgage company have requested that the rental payments be made to them.
The letting agents reply to this…’that doesn’t sound right, I wouldn’t pay them, your contract is with us’
Is this a normal thing to happen?
Or should the letting agent have done something?
