Hi there, I have recently signed a assured tenancy contract for 2 years to start on 15 January. The letting agent has taken my deposit, advance rent and admin fees. The owner of the property has also signed the contract. I am self employed which the agency knew and I have incidentally been with them at my current property for 5 years. They told me they needed my passport, 3 mths bank statements and a landlord ref which they would provide. They are now saying the apartment building has a management team who need to vet potential tenants and they require an employers ref which I can’t give as I am self employed. I keep contacting them but they still won’t let me know if I am moving or not. They say they haven’t heard from the building managers. I am getting so stressed out as I have no idea if I will be homeless come January. It is getting too late to look for other flats now what with Xmas coming up etc. because money has been taken and contracts signed, are they obliged by law to let me move in?
