Hi,

I let two properties to a letting Agent that my friend used for his properties.

The letting Agent put two DHSS tenants. Letting Agent assured me that they know the tenant for over two years and she is good.

Now, both of my tenants just paid what Housing benefits paid with the result both owe me over £2000.

I asked the letting Agent about the arrears and he says if the tenant doesn't pay, they can't do much.

What shall I do to the letting agent?

Just watching his reviews, one of the Landlord living far away like me had a very bad experience from this letting agent and he has written a very bad review, which I should have read before appointing him.

Is there a way, I can high light this letting agent so that future landlords are warned?

Letting agent is a member of the property Ombudsman only. Are these Ombudsmen any good?

Any good debt collecting agent? I can ask such an agent to sue the tenants.
