    The agents are ARLA regulated and are also having legal problems with this guy

    Im happy to take him to the SCC but other people have tried and he just keeps deferring. How many times can he defer before he forced to go to court ?

      Err...........Willard, first of all make a formal written complaint to the agent so that he can give you his repsonse. Then if you are dissatisfied write to the Compliance Officer at NFOPP (now governing body of ARLA) at the National Federation of Property Professionals, Arbon House, 6 Tournament Court, Edghill Drive Warwick. CV34 6LG.
      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.

        If the agent holds the deposit you will not need to take LL to court as the agent should deal with deposit as per regs. Look to the agent for your deposit.

          Thanks for the link, according to the checker I should be one.

          What you have said makes complete sense, totally agree, and I feel more assured now so thanks again for your help and level of detail into this.

          I’m also pursuing it with some law firms to be completely on the...

          Hi there,

          I moved into a property 2-3 months ago which was subletted to me by a girl named on the main tenancy contract of the property. I handed over a deposit (which is currently unprotected) and have paid rent on time. She today decided to give me notice to leave, giving me only 2 weeks...

        • Landlord dictating minimum temperature for property
          by haystack1979
          Our landlord wants to insert a clause in our tenancy agreement to require us to maintain a temperature of 20 degrees in the house in order to mitigate a damp problem, is this legal? It's a very old place with a kitchen with thick stone walls which is poorly ventilated. The previous owner had the damp...

          Try and change suppliers.
          The outgoing supplier will do everything that they can to prevent this (the automated routes won't work), but they'll have to do it eventually.

        • Help - evicted tenant leaves a nasty surprise behind
          by nreid
          My tenant was evicted back in April of this year after a lengthy period.
          Besides this trauma, the problems continue.

          My new agent has emptied the letterbox and found a number of concerning items. One is the matter of a court summons for unpaid council tax. I have since taken over...

          It sounds like it. But as above ask for a breakdown of fees first and take it from there.

          There is a Solicitors Regulation Authority. It has a Code of Conduct....

          Assuming that you are a tenant (there's a good checker on the Shelter website - which might be useful to point your landlord at)..

          There are a number of ways a tenancy can be brought to an end, but for a landlord to end the tenancy, there are only two options (other than by agreement with...

          We had a very high solicitors charge but my partner noticed in their terms & conditions that they had put that if their charges were going to go over £5000 they would contact us first, which they had not done, so the bill was reduced to £5000 plus Vat at £1000.
          And I believe that there...
