we rented out our family home using a letting agent. they initially paid 6 months rent in advance, but were constantly finding petty problems.
They have changed the door locks and it is very difficult to try and get access.
they are now starting to be late paying the monthly rent.

our letting agent told us that they had references from their previous landlords but refuse to show them to us , stating the Data Protection Act.
In desperation we have managed to contact the previous landlords ourselves. They informed us that they have never been contacted by our agent acting for references. the tenants changed their locks, refused them access and stopped paying rent, they eventually managed to evict them. They also told us that they had found out that this had also happened at the previous house that they had rented.

So we have problem tenants and lying letting agents.
we have let our family home for 12 months and hope to move back in then , otherwise we may well be homeless ourselves.
What is our best course of action ??
