Fake reference tenant insists on paying agent and not us?

As the tenant is paying you the rent I’d just sit tight. Yes a false reference shouldn’t have been given, but you’ll now be “shutting the gate after the horse has bolted”. Do you really want all the hassle and cost of evicting him ? He’ll likely stop paying the rent and the whole thing will cost you substantial money. The falsification of the reference should have been picked up at application stage, too late now, put it down to experience.
Regarding the payments to agent it would seem your agent was employed to manage the property from the outset, otherwise why would the tenant even know of him let alone be paying him, or have his bank details. I’m guessing you’ve now split from the agent and managing yourself. I think there’s more to this ?... Read More

They should automatically be sending you a copy of the service charge accounts, you shouldn’t have to request them. These have to be issued within 6 months of the year end, otherwise if there is a delay a Section 20 notice (informing of the delay) has to be issued to all leaseholders by the managing agent....

Yes it depends on your situation. If an RMC (residents management company) was formed at the outset then the residents are appointed directors and will arrange the insurance. And appoint a management company to run the site. Like you say you can hire them or fire them, so have total control.
However in Mark’s development he says there is a Managing Agent appointed by the freeholder. So there is no RMC and the freeholder directly runs the site, appoints the agent and the freeholder is responsible for arranging the buildings insurance hence why in most cases the insurance premium is jacked up....
