I engaged a letting agency on a tenant seek basis.
They found a tenant who had a satisfied CCJ but wanted to rent the property paying 6 months in advance. I accepted the tenant on these terms but when I had to keep chasing the agents to get the tenancy signed up they then revealed the man had to complete on the sale of a house BEFORE he could pay the 6 months in advance.

I am in dispute with the agents as to whether or not they should have told me this at the outset as, as a result I insisted they find another tenant which meant the house was empty for 5 weeks. The void period I'm not happy about but accept my part in it, but I think they failed in their duty and am disputing the fee they charged of 300 plus 52.50 VAT. They also don't have a VAT registration number on their invoices.

Any views?
