Here is a case I like to get a discussion going:
An agent who knows we are moving in 4 or 5 months, but is not on contract wanted us to do him a favour and let him show our house to a potential tenant who is broadly considering moving here. We happily agreed, but told the agent to be mindful that we had not made up our mind re selling, tenancy or keeping it empty and he was without contract with us. The agent showed up with the tenant, who indicated he would be really just looking to get a feel for the area and house quality available.
A few days later the tenant rung my door and asked to have another look. He also entered into on the spot negotiations over a potential contract.
Clearly, he felt this could be done between him and me rather than via agencies involved on both sides.
I like the tenant; the terms he offered were generous and he is of very good credit standing.
Now, I have no contract with anyone, but what is my legal position if any?
Clearly this is a case of morality and fairness to pay a few Pounds to the Agent, but has to be completely “without prejudice”.
Comments welcome ,thanks
