    I haven't received any kind of paper work other than the tenancy agreement :|

      Thank you. I might contact my bank also to see if I can do a charge back just incase.

        This sounds a bit strange.
        Is the landlord an employee of the agency?

          I am unsure, he may do considering he is apparently at the office in "meetings"

            If you have the landlord name search him/her on social media, Linkdin and 192.com See what that turns up about this person.

                Have you been to their office? How sure are you that this is a bona fide agent?

                  Yes, I agree about the acting reasonably and interestingly the legislation seems to allow for this too through the use of the word "include"

                  For the purposes of paragraph (1), the circumstances in which a person (“P”) has a reasonable excuse include cases where....

                  Hi all - I'm new to this so apologies if this (or similar) has been dealt with somewhere else!
                  I own a property in the south west but currently live in London. I've been renting the property out privately. My last tenant moved out in January 2020 and I was planning to get quite a bit of (much needed)

                  My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

                  As a stupid landlord I take grave exception to your slur, Sir!

                  Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

                  As it's UC then as a landlord you need to submit a form UC47 to apply to the DWP for a 'Managed Payments to Landlord', which can include an amount for arrears.
                  However any repayment of arrears granted will be on a 'pay back at so much a month' basis.

                  UC47's can now be submitted online....
