    I still wouldn't consider them even as a recommendation. The true test of an agent is when difficulties arise, and perhaps your friend's property has run smoothly. Any agent can look competent then.

    It's not at all clear as the wording is very sketchy, but it appears you are handing over control of your property to an agent who will then sub-let to tenants on an AST. I would want this wording...

    As well as the UTCCR, there is also the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 which wouldn't normally require a court to decide on the merit of a clause within a supplier/consumer...

    I would suggest common law, or law of contract but I'm sure Lawcruncher can enlighten you in due course.

    You need to look at your own contents policy (if you have one) as that may well include Public Liability cover. You should also ask for a further explanation as to what is exactly "excluded" from...

    If a checking-out of the inventory is not done within a very short period after vacation at the end of a tenancy, it's just about worthless.

    Yes maybe if he had any, but £30 wouldn't even be worth claiming for as any excess would be at least £50 normally, so I still maintain the landlord should pay as the electrics are obviously faulty...

    If you have no written agreement then you can ask the lodger to move now, without notice, and if he refuses you can ask plod for assistance. There's plenty of posts on this very subject on the...

    Your landlord should cover the cost of the food, but more importantly it appears a qualified electrician needs to look at the fault. Ask the landlord to have the circuit tested, and if he refuses...

    If they were given to you then they should have asked you to sign for them. No signature would look very awkward.

    I consider the £900 to be a penalty which under the "Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regualtions 2008" might be illegal. Under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations 1999 it might...

    That used to be the case bit isn't anymore. An ex-ternant can still claim the 3x deposit if it wasn't protected.

    Your last sentence is correct. The tenant who has not served notice will need to make a decision as to whether they want to stay with a new AST. You should let them know the situation asap.

    The agent will have to prove that they logged the keys in and out of their office, there is no proof on yourself I would say.

    There are plenty of posts covering your situation, and suggest you look at these as it's the same repetitive answer otherwise. You've more or less answered your own question.

    If the answer isn't obvious to you, you write and ask for the money within say, 7 days otherwise you will take action through the county court via (MCOL).

    In Part 1 you serve a Notice to Quit but you need to consult the tenancy agreement first as it will not be under the Housing Acts 1988,...
