In a nutshell (as I’ve had nearly two months of stress and anxiety), agent I used 2 years ago without problem, found tenants for me in February. The tenant paid her 4 months rent up front plus deposit, plus 4 months council tax up front – all to obviously then pass to me.
I have had daily lies and excuses from her making me more and more angry that she’s got my money. I need it. I am a single parent and live off the rent. She told me to back off because off her mental health, then she said she’d had a miscarriage, banks closed etc etc. I’m furious and admit I’ve sent her some pretty nasty messages to give me my money out of desperation, but she won’t.
I’ve taken out a CCJ but know that I won’t get my money through that as she has 2 others against her. I spoke to the police who said it’s a civil matter which I disagree with – it’s not a debt, she’s taken my money. They spoke to her then they ended up telling me that I’m the only one breaking the law for harassing her! She even told them she had paid me which she hasn’t. She’s not a member of a MPS so I’ve reported her to trading standards. She said that she’s closed the company since finding me the tenant.
I realise that because she did nothing with the deposit that the tenant can potentially sue me plus I don’t have the option of eviction so I have that hanging over me and on top of it all I still have to find the money to give back the deposit to him anyway.
So all in around £8k plus threat of deposit suing.
I cannot tell you how angry I feel at the injustice of her both having my money and her being allowed to get away with it. My own mental health and my family’s is suffering.
Any suggestions please? Thank you
