    Good idea, I will call a few on Monday.

    Sorrybto repeat myself but is it too late to appoint a letting agent now the tenancy already exists?

    Secondly, if there is a repair that the freeholder is responsible for, how do I as the leaseholder show the court I have tried to resolve it? If the freeholder wont resolve it what do I do to protect myself? Many thanks

      Compensate your tenant. I offer rent reductions whilst repair not fixed.

      You can appoint agent. Who may get things worse. Landlord remains fully responsible.
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        No agent would take it on in the current state - there are specialist repossession services which is a better route.

        You show three formal attempts to resolve the issue, and evidence that the tenant isn't allowing the repairs to be completed.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          Jp, it’s not the tenant, it’s the freeholder of the builder (the council). They are ignoring my letters and calls but the Tenant is complaining to me. I can’t arrange for a repair to the building as I’m not the freeholder

            You are responsible for providing a satisfactory residence for your tenant.

            That you can't get freeholder to fix things is your problem. Suggest you try to arrive at a financial deal with tenant (rent off if he stays) or let him go early no penalty.

              Therefore you must be Leaseholder?

                In which case, the tenant has a case.
                You can offer the defence that the disrepair is due to something you can't control, but I'd expect the court to ignore that if the disrepair is serious and it's something you are required to correct.
