    agency not passing rent!

    it has been 5 months i have let my property out. The property agent hasnt given me last month rent despite me chasing them. Their shop is closed and only way of communication is through messages/email.
    I went to my let house to speak to the tenants directly to see if its them or the agent only to find out the person named on my contract isnt living in my property but someone else who doesnt know anything about the person mentioned on my contract. They do not understand english and couldnt help me with my questions. Please advise how to proceed and what to do?

    I think youve been scammed. Speak to a specialist housing solicitor asap

      Have a look at the company accounts or google them to see if they make any finance based announcements.
      That'll give you some idea how profitable their business is.

      Part of the issue with letting agents is that good ones are difficult to find and doing the job well is much more expensive...

      Contact the software company themselves, you would get the right answer from them rather than this forum.

I would be interested to hear the experiences of landlords who’ve been down the TPO route, i.e. length of time for resolution (TPO quote 3-4 months), apparent...
