what is an AST?
Yes, sorry I wasnt thinking .
I would particularly like to get out of this AST because I resent paying the agency £100 each month for doing nothing. I changed to self-management but they will not reduce the fee. I thought this might be one way of curtailing it. I would like to keep the woman as she has two children, and she can pay the rent.
I felt they pressured me into signing it in the first place.
Well it is a long story to type out.
I am annoyed that they recommended this couple, even though he was at the time doing a suspended sentence. I didnt know that, and I guess the agency didnt, but surely they could have done better checks on his situation?
I can terminate it as they are out of the initial period of the AST and are now on a month by month basis.
The agency started off badly at the beginning of the AST by charging me £150 for cleaning, when the property was fairly clean. I had said that I did not want to pay any cleaning fees, but they wont refund that money.
