Oxford using plane with thermal imaging to catch beds in sheds

I think the fact is that some people simply do not have the money to pay the rent in expensive areas like Oxford and central London and rather than rent the 'beds in sheds' they would be better choosing a location where renting a home is within their budget. There are plenty of affordable areas and it is not a god given right to be able to live in any location you please, it's a case of cutting your coat according to your cloth.... Read More

Termination of contract fee is extortionate

I am currently living with something similar but 10 times worse!! Back in November, trying to pre-empt problems I contacted the agent who manages my three student properties to check what their terms were with regard to my removing my properties from their management and I was told they needed 3 months notice which I duly gave, this was because I was going to sell the properties ready for the new academic year in July.
The agent offered for the 3 houses himself and I duly accepted the offer but 6 weeks later he withdrew from the purchases and so I placed them with an estate agent and a buyer was soon found.
A month after withdrawing from the purchases the managing agent had, without my knowledge, gone ahead and re-let the houses for the new academic year beginning in July and then informed me that I owe £4,000+vat as compensation for 'lost' rent resulting from the new tenancies not being under their management, and that if I did not pay I would not receive the tenancy paperwork, ASTs & TDS etc.
He said he 'understood' that my instruction had been superseded by his offer.
I protested that I had already given him 7 months notice and had not wanted him to enter into new agreements on my behalf and it should be I who was compensated not him, but he wouldn't move and so trying to avoid conflict I agreed to pay him a normal tenant find fee (which was about 50% of what he was demanding).
After 3 months impasse with increasingly acrimonious emails flying back and forth I paid him what he asked as I was in danger of losing the sales of the properties.
So now he refuses to do end of tenancy checks (he doesn't have time!!) and says he will just return the deposits to the tenants regardless.
Having a solicitor on the case hasn't helped and my intention is to lodge a formal complaint with ARLA but I can't help thinking this is not enough. I'm now wondering about contacting the ombudsman as mentioned above?... Read More
