Tenant Introduction through two agencies - which is valid?

Thanks Ros,

That is helpful - and sets precedent (perhaps not legally but at least anecdotally) - did you end up taking the applicant on as a tenant? And did the agency try to contest your response?... Read More

Tenant Introduction through two agencies - which is valid?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for this.

I have signed a contract and have read through it several times over (before and after I signed it) and don't see any references to tenant introductions (through the high street agent or their competitors).

The only bone of contention I can see is the following:
'In the event of any Tenancy not being concluded by reason of the Owner withdrawing his instruction then a Fee shall be payable by the owner to cover the fair and reasonable value of the work carried out and expenses incurred by the Agent prior to the withdrawal of instruction'

Unsure if this refers to a tenancy which has begun or whether it applies to prospective tenancies too.

I can prove that the applicant came through via the online agent with time stamped messages on their portal exchanged between myself and the applicant, and yes, you're absolutely right, no point in fretting until the applicant puts in an offer and it's accepted. I just thought I would arm myself with all the facts, legalities and rules if it does become an issue.

Thanks for the link - I'll look into it!... Read More
