Termination of contract fee is extortionate

I pay £70 a month for an agent to collect rent on my property. For this they have done nothing since finding the tenant. Oh yes, they did an inventory, but it never materialised.

With 2 months’ notice of the end of the 1 year tenancy, they want to charge £600 to let me take over management of the tenancy myself. The tenants have become my friends and are happy with my proposal.

Do I really have to “buy” them from the agent a second time?

So too they must accept the County Court decision.

I agree Stewart. It's important to store all communications, I have kept absolutely everything!
