I have been in a privately rented house for over 4 years.
The landlord has had the house for sale for a while. A gentleman called last week to say he has bought the property and he will send through a new tenancy agreement (why do I need a new one???).
he has called today a couple of times saying I need to pay the deposit/bond.
I phoned bed my letting agent who emailed him asking for proof of owning the property. He then emailed me again saying the letting agent was making it difficult and he would accept half the deposit tomorrow with the rest paid within 2 weeks.
I know my deposit is in a secure government account and should be transferred to him accordingly.
He is party of a leggings agency too and I don’t understand why he is doing this?
What else can I do?
Thank you for any comments 🙂
