Hello, I was happy with my agent until they decided to retire and sold out to what turned out to be a rogue agent who against my wishes afforded an AST to someone not referenced, knowing she couldn’t pay the rent leaving me with £3000+ debt ignoring a mate living in the property.
Another agent called to say he would manage the property and would move someone in, I was against this as the previous tenants (who I can’t find) had done damage. This couple would decorate for a month’s rent and the agent’s trades would do the rest. So the agent (a household name) failed, the tenants have done damage by doing ‘grand designs’ against the AST without permission, claiming that was how it was when they moved in, although I have time-dated photographs.
I had a gas safety check, and boiler serviced through the agent, the tenants are saying there was no C02 alarm, C/H control the list is endless. I’m 76+ I can’t cope with the stress of entitled liars, can a section 21 or section 8 be issued, please?
What is it with these squeaky clean agents previous long-term tenants did some £62,000 damage and they wanted to give the deposit back? PCC hadn’t seen anything like it and deemed it uninhabitable for council tax. Good landlords are sadly tarred with the dark brush.
