Is a letting agent liable for non collection of rent? We are

Customer Question

Is a letting agent liable for non collection of rent? We are a letting agent and the tenant simply will not pay her rent. We have served the correct notice to evict the tenant but the landlord says she holds us responsible. Surely she cant do that?

What does your management agreement with the landlord state in this regard?

Does it state that you will apply for a money judgement for the rent at county court or not?

Kind regards,
