A property we rented for our daughter has the wrong rent amount recorded on it,also the landlord was looking after it and was the contact,she now wants to pass that onto an agent,does this mean anew contract needs to be drawn up.


Hi Peter

No, your daughter’s tenancy agreement will always be with the landlord, whether there is an agent around or not. The agent works for the landlord and so there is a contract between agent and landlord but there is no contractual relationship between your daughter and the agent. 

If the rent is wrong then that’s a much more serious issue – whatever the figure is in the tenancy agreement is the figure that your daughter will have to pay so if it’s more than was agreed I would get that amended as soon as possible, either by the landlord or the agent.
