New electrical checks and safety standards for Landlords8:59 AM, 15th January 2020

I have just let out two properties in the London area through 1 agent to 2 tenants. The agent provided us Veri Check reference check, employer reference, and passport IDs. However, after I received the tenant’s contact info, something looked odd so I went back to double check the reference by contacting both employers of the new tenants.
The employers denied knowledge of these tenants and the Veri Check report was verified by the agent themselves. At this point, I don’t even know if their passport IDs are genuine.
Can anyone help?
1) if the tenancy agreement can be revoked?
2) what recourse do I have against the agent?
