I am the landlord of a property of which I rented the

Resolved Question:

I am the landlord of a property of which I rented the property through an agent who fully managed the property on my behalf, the contract ran out on the 15th May 2016 but they asked for an extension until the end of May so they could sort out another property to move into, I acknowledged the extension on the grounds they paid for the extension which was agreed through the agent. The tenant is now refusing to pay for the extra days they stayed in the property, I have asked for this to be deducted from the deposit the tenant put down but again is refusing - Where do i stand from a legal point of view with this??

Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.

Do you know where they have gone to?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No i dont know where the tenant has moved onto, I didn't have any dealings with the tenant as it was all done through the agency but I know they are still in contact with them as when i spoke to them today they informed me she is refusing to pay the rent owed
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.

Is the deposit protected?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the deposit was taken by the agency and put into a deposit protect scheme
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.

Ok - then you should make an application to the scheme for deduction.

Its right the tenant just cant leave without paying the rent.

So make an application to the scheme. Legally you are entitled to rent and that can be deducted from the deposit, but that deduction must be approved by the scheme.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

OK I will speak to the agency again tomorrow to see if they have managed to sort the issue out, if not i will ask for the details of the scheme and get in contact with them to push this forward.Thank you for your help.
