my son and girlfriend moved into a private rental run by an agent two months ago.
several days before the rent us due they are constantly hounded by calls and texts from the agent.
This month they called the agent to say the rent would be two days late as neither of them were being paid until then. The agent said this was fine.
However, on the day they were due to make payment, the agent nor only barraged them with calls and text but called both their employers AND members of their family with demands.
My son then received a warning from work that they would not tolerate calls from his agent concerning his rent.
Their rent was paid (agent insists on cash with a receipt) on the day as agreed after they had finished work.
Can the agent do this, or is it seen as a form of harassment!?
They work hard, pay their bills on time and this is the first occasion they had to delay payment (again the agent was ok with this initially)
Your help would be appreciated if the agent is breaking any rules concerning constant calls/text to them and to employers and members of the family.
