    Online letting agents

    Hi all I wanted to ask your thoughts on using online letting agents and is there anything in particular I should look out for or try and avoid I don't mind doing the viewings myself but ideally the letting agent will do the referencing and credit checks and handle the enquiries

    does anyone have any good recommendations?

      Hi, I am 7mths into a 12mth contract and several weeks ago I discovered by chance my letting agent had closed down even tho I have not had any formal correspondence to confirm this (and I am assuming the landlord has probably not been informed either). I have been trying to get in contact with l.a....

      When you say you paid a month's rent in advance, was that simply the rent for month one, and you now pay monthly in advance, or were you asked to pay an additional month in advance (often described as an advance payment for the final month)?...

      im sure your landlord will be in touch -

      with regard to the month in advance, you wouldn't normally get that back, as when you issue your notice to quit, giving a months notice, that month has effectively been paid upfront, so you wouldn't pay for your final month as you would do 'normally'. similarly, you wouldn't pay for your final months...

      Thank you so much for your advice jpkeates I have looked on companies house and it does state the letting agent dissolved 9th October. So in regards of the situation would this be a breach of contract (altho I do fully acknowledge the landlord could well be a victim in this aswell) also I do know my...

      Your landlord is whoever is named as "landlord" on your tenancy agreement,
      That may not be the owner of the property.

      It's possible that your landlord rents the property from someone else and then lets to you.

      The solicitors advice makes sense, although you...
