We rented a house with a agenacy in Leicester when we viewed it smelt badly of cannabis but were assured it would be sorted and the previous tenants had been in trouble for smoking it, when we moved in it still really smelt to the point we had to replace a carpet as we couldn t get rid of the smell! We also then started to discover there were holes cut in floor boards and ceilings where it had been stored. After talking to some people on the street it turns out that it had been used to grow large Amounts of cannabis and was being sold from the house and on the streets to the point the police were aware and so were the agents. We even had people knocking on the door to buy it, should the agent have disclosed to us what the house was used for as it s illegal and hs coursed is issues?

I’m not sure. What would you like to do ? I’m pretty sure you can’t void the contract based on that alone. And it’s laughable to think about claiming compensation from a letting agent as there is very loose standards to what they should do or not in the first place.
