Letting agent horror stories

It's always worth landlords keeping a beedy eye on their letting agents, it is worth taking the default optinion that your letting agent is going to try to rip you off.

Keep up your guard at all times and sporadically check up on the things they are telling you, basically try your best to catch them out.

This required distrust is underlined by this recent post in the Daily Mail recounting the story of a dodgy letting agent who avoided securing the tenancy deposit and then rented out the property whilst telling the landlord it was still empty.

Don't trust them, letting agents are your enemy, so keep them close to you and watch out for the dagger in the back.
