  1. Hi I have had a letting agent looking after my property for 1 year. In that time i have recieved 3 months of rents. Early on in the tenacny non payment of rent was down the the tenant. to overcome this problem the LA told me that he had managed to get the housing benefit due to the tenant paid direct to him and that he would redirect payment to my bank account However this is not the case and months of rent are still outstanding. I have called, text emailed and written to him. His responses vary from one excuse to another. Therefore I have decided that it now time to take back control of property It was the LA that originally found the tenant Firstly im a correct in saying that the contract is between myself and the tenant ? and that if i do not wish to have her as a tenant it is me, not the LA, that must go through the correct procedure for giving notice to quit ? I intend to visit the LA again this week to find out his terms and conditions about taking back the property Is there anything i should be aware of ? many thanks m
  2. Hi there Fairly new to the buy to let. However, have now secured property no 4. So far been really lucky in that tenants have all been known to me through friend of a friend!. However, this new flat I will need to openly advertise. Therefore, can anyone advise the best way to go about referencing new tenant or any handy tips regarding this. What about a good referencing agency any recommendations? - especially im terms of value for money. Or is it possible to carry out a reference check yourself? look forward to any advice many thanks marionmc
