View Full Version : estate agency rental agreement out of date

26-09-2006, 09:32 AM
Our tennant is buying our flat, the rental agreement ran expired over a year ago and the estate agent did not contact us to renew it and we did not either, we just did it direct with the tennant on a month by month basis. The same tennant has been in the flat since and now wants there £250 holiding deposit back that the estate agent has. My question is this, will the estate agent want any more money of us once they discover they were lax in renewing the contract or is it just tough that they forgot to renew and the contract expired a year ago?

What type of agreement did you have with the EA? They did not need to renew it by the way....it's possible they weren't being "lax", just carrying on the fairly standard procedure of allowing the tenancy to become periodic.
