Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

New tenants asked to be released from an agreement after 1 month because of anti-social problems, via the letting agents I agreed.
They accepted in an email that they had to pay rent until a new tenant was found and also pay their setting up fee. However, they refused to pay citing that the agent lied to them when they asked if it was a good area. Neither I nor the agent had heard of problems. I have later found out that the police had recorded some incidents, so by saying that area was fine the agency was not lying.
They also accuse the agency of failing to look for other tenants when the next tenant initially failed to find a suitable guarantor. While the latter may be true, it is me they owe the money to.
Would I win if I took the to court?
