EPC score is a moving target and a joke?

If you really want to see how farcical the situation is have a look at just how easy it is to train as a fully qualified EPC assessor. My Labrador could qualify.

Termination terms between landlords and agents?

If the agent has no T’s and C’s they would have to rely on a verbal agreement between you and them. Did you keep a note of any conversations you had with them before you instructed them?
If you call their bluff and they actually take you to court I can almost guarantee they will produce a handwritten file note detailing your verbal agreement.
I personally would tell them that they are not entitled to any fees and as far as you are concerned the relationship is terminated. Countrywide tried to threaten me but I had deliberately never signed their contract. They eventually got bored and gave up.

EPC score is a moving target and a joke?

The whole system is a farce. The EPC’s are full of assumptions virtually nothing is based on fact. If your property was already rated C why did you bother trying to improve its EPC score by carrying out the improvements?

Leak - Tenant delay reporting and made problem worse?

No you can’t. Clearly your tenant is an idiot who doesn’t care about your property. As soon as the restrictions on evictions are lifted you should get rid of him.

Property Purchase in High Flood Risk Area?

Do not buy this property. Of course the vendor will say his be property has never flooded because he wants you to buy his house. I made the mistake of buying a property in York that I was assured hadn’t flooded and lots of anti flood measures had been installed. All lies of course. The end result for me 3 major floods in 5 years, enormous costs, struggles to get insurance and then only at extortionate rates that the mafia would have been proud of. I eventually managed to offload the property but not before years of worry, stress and regret at my own stupidity.
