    agent/rent arrears

    Advice please is it time for new agent ,yet again my tenants are in arrears on more than one property,agent seems to put no pressure on tenants and I only get to know when over 6 weeks and I start asking questions.
    At what point should tenants be chased for rent.

    What does your contract with the agent state?
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      The next working day after rent was due and wasn't paid.

        Full management which I took to mean rents chased.

          Yes, but

            The number of agents who just state "Full Management" for their monthly fee are doing themselves a disservice, and are being far too lazy as it requires a detailed breakdown of what it means, otherwise they are leaving themselves open to being given the run-around by landlords and tenants alike. No explanation of terms means they should do everything for say 10% of the monthly rental. The fools.
            The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

              Hello

              My tenant was evicted. Does this mean that my relationship with the estate agency has ended ?

              I am not using this agency anymore as I am selling although I am still dealing with the agency regarding the deposit. I was advised to wait for 3 months. The Tenant did...

              Hello All,

              The deposit has been paid to me at last. 10 days earlier than expected. I was surprised. My ex T. did not agree to release it but also did not raise a dispute....

              The rental property is in Scotland and yes I am complying with all necessary legislation.

              A letting agent manages the property as I live overseas. The last tenant moved out a few weeks ago to move in with her partner and was no bother at all. Lots of viewings after the tenant moved out...

              The letting agency has been given the ol' Spanish archer and I'm waiting to hear back about remortgaging from CTL on the SVR to a BTL mortgage. Onward and upwards....

              I spend long periods out of the UK, and i pay a good friend to carry out checks etc. I don't use an agent. Providing you have a good plumber, handyman and electrician you can call on an agent is superfluous....

              The boiler has a frost setting and because I have consent to let on my mortgage I have to pay an extra 1% interest. I think I will approach my friend about acting as the agent. I'll also continue sounding out the other agent....

              If you trust your friend would it be an option to pay her to be your agent? Leaving it empty is always possible but it brings it's own problems. You need to decide what to do about heating. An unheated house will get damp but leaving it on will obviously cost you. You may want to drain the pipes to...

              Another one I had at around the same time as the issue described in post #23 was the matter of the inverted mattress.

              Having been quite alarmed by the levels of competence indicated by the report about the stained mattress protector, I travelled approx 500 miles to the property to see for...

              Absolutely pathetic. I'm not sure if there is a decent letting agent in the entire city. Most seem to have one individual who is the acceptable face of the agency and appears competent only for your property to be handed over to a colleague who either doesn't care or is as thick as two short planks....
