    What are the rules for contacting tenants?

    Am I allowed to say, phone them up to discuss the situation with them? Our flat is rented through agents who are being worse than useless.

    I don't believe that there is a law that says you may not phone your tenants up.
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      Of course you can contact your tenants if you wish. They are your tenants, not your agent's. It does however beg the question of why you are paying a'worse than useless' agent - smacks of buying a dog, but barking yourself!

      Sack the agent.

        Check the contract you have with the agent, there is usually a one month notice period. All contracts have to have a termination clause, they can't lock you in ad infinitum. Even if the clause says something silly it can always be challenged as unreasonable or unenforceable.

          Do they? Where does it say that, then?

          1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
