Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim, a dual-qualified lawyer (UK & Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
You are not liable here - as you rightly point out, there is no contract between the landlord and yourselves. They only have a claim against the tenant under housing law for recovery of the arrears. There is no locus here - you can tell the landlord you will dispute any claim as it would be totally without merit. I presume you simply source the clients and in no way check their creditworthiness or such like.
I hope this helps? If I have answered the question would you kindly leave me a 5 star rating (at the top of your screen), any follow up questions are welcomed.
Thanks, ***** ***** case the landlord has no comeback here. They may do if you were tasked with carrying out a credit reference though.
Is there anything else I can help with?
OK, thanks, ***** ***** good day
