    It depends on the wording of your agreement with the agent.
    They're all different.

    Dispute about estate agent commission

    Hi all,
    I have an EA from hell and I could do with a decent one for a newbie landlord who has now migrated abroad. I have had a hell of a bad time with the EA with regards to finding decent tenants and finally decided to give them the boot. The last tenant that they found was due to sign agreement over the weekend but asked for a 3rd viewing after initially agreeing about two weeks ago. I was losing patience and ended the agreement. Now the EA are claiming that the commission for the full year is due as they found the tenant (who obviously I didn't agree or contract with).
    Is that enforceable?
    Thanks,

    Another difficult landlord situation: tenants had rent arrears. We served both section 8 and 21. Just before hearing for possession on section 8 grounds, they paid enough arrears to have it squashed ( still 1 month behind) but used a lawyer to put forward a counterclaim and date for trial is expected...

    I dont really see the problem here. The landlord may be acting a bit dogmatically, but their request is basically reasonable. Landlords enter tenanted properties for inspection without the tenant present all the time. What are you concerned will happen?

    Paying arrears has to be a win of sorts. What is the basis of their counterclaim? Does it have any merit?

    The retaliatory eviction legislation is very specific and the tenant has to have told you about any disrepair in writing prior to the s21 notice and the Council has to serve a category...

    Thank you very much for your reply and all make sense, after reading here on this forum and on the net over the last few days; what I have learnt is do as much as you can to cover yourself just incase you need to issue a section 8 or section 21 notice.

    Not sure I'm going over the top but...

    Hi all,

    I would, just on the belt and braces basis.

    The issue will be that your new tenancy will be a follow on or replacement tenancy and the prescribed information relating to the deposit has a deadline relating to the original receipt of the deposit.
    You'd ideally want some evidence that...

    Thank you for your time and reply very grateful.

    If the tenancy agreement had to be changed would i need to issue all these documents again and if i don't get proof of service from the estate agents should i issue them again?

    Thank you for your help......
