I have not gone through and studied word for word. We just feel that the regular inspections should have flagged and pre-empted the issues we currently have.
We are getting a very poor response from the agents and are still waiting for the check out report. We feel we have far more issues than their report details, hence the reluctanace to issue.
Thanks Tom, last question
Whilst corresponding I have pulled out the relevant information from the letting agency. I only appear to have the short term tennancy agreement, not specific terms and conditions for the agent.
Within the tennancy agreement there are clear stipulation on what is required. Would it be reasonable for us to expect that these breaches should have been picked up during the inspections and therefore the agents should not have been paid for not doing the job properly ?
