  • The letting agent charged me more that we have agreed before
    by Timonthy
    My letting agent helped me to look for furniture package few months ago. Before I agreed to purchase the furniture package, the agent sent me the quotation. As I agreed with the items and the price in the quotation, I transferred money and agreed him to purchase that package.

    However, I...

    They are required to be registered with a redress scheme, so that is probably your next port of call. You have to take it up with the agent first (as you have), but if they do not respond within a given period of time you can escalate it.

    First of all, check which redress scheme they are...

    I totally agree with your view.

    In fact, the letting agent has already charged me from my rent income, and I knew it after I checked the statement.

    As I discussed these issues with my letting agent, they just replied that they would look into the matters.

    I will...

    Someone selling you a service can't charge more than you have agreed to pay for it without your agreement.
    "Forgetting to tell you" isn't a valid reason, and, broadly speaking, it's their oversight and should be their cost.

    Thanks I have HMO license from the local council although I just have 3 small rooms. I am not operating a hotel. I am planning to rent to a small group of people but I want an agent to manage it for me.or you think it is better to do it myself like I did before

    Your responsibilities don't go away if you hand the property to an agent. If you are renting rooms out then it would be classed as an HMO and you need to have fulfilled the compliance aspects prior to renting it out as such with the local council's approval.

    HMO's require more work than...
