I used an established Letting agent to take on my tenant. However, as she had no references she paid 5 months rent for a 6 month contract. The agency never gained access to inspect, but continued on a one month rolling on contract.
I warned the agency I was a month out at the end of the contract, but did nothing and I lost a months rent. The property was left in dire straights, filthy and wrecked. The Tenant appealed at court for her deposit, and annoyingly she had part of her deposit back.
The agents took either minimum photos or non at all of the damage. I did take extensive photos, and all though the tenant did not get the remainder of her deposit back, it left me out of pocket after rectifying her damage including having to buy new carpet.
I have a different Agent and my present tenant has been there 3 years. I have just received a letter to say my previous agents have brought out my present agents that look after my property. I do not wish for them to manage my property.
Can I give instant refusal to taking over the management of my property. At present the previous only took the monies from my tenant and took a 10% cut.
Any repairs or maintenance has always been done by me.
