Letting agent hasn't collected enough rent?

Hi Eduardo,

I have checked all my paperwork from the agent and also his website etc and it doesn't appear that he belongs to any association or the property ombardsman etc. It looks as though the agent is going to evict the tenant and therfore hopefully we can reclaim the deposit as rent arrears and then we will have to claim the remainder in the small claims court from the agent through lack of managment I think....

Hi Michael

Thank you for your comments. The agent has confirmed that we are not getting enough rent and he has put a plan together to the tenant to recover the oustanding amount and to increase her current payments to the correct amount. I think that the discrepancy has arisen from the agent's lack of checking on the rent after I brought it up with him after the first few months of the new tenant starting.

We will now be writing to the agent to clarify the position based on all your comments.

Many thanks again

Hi Paul

We are still receiving the less rent at the moment and the tenant is now not answering any calls or letters!

Hi Helen

Many thanks for your reply, sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I have been very unwell.

Your reply was most useful and we will now ask for compensation and reduced fees from the letting agent in a formal letter, so if we need to take it further we can.

The agent is now looking at issuing a eviction notice as she is not responding to any his phonecalls or letters. ( I think it is an Ostrich syndrome!). I am therefore not sure if we will get any of the money back unless we sue the agent!

Hi Bill

No we are not sure and our initial contact with the council has not been very effective as they will not give out information on a client as we are not the letting agent!... Read More
