I am looking at moving in to a flat and the landlord is stalling over giving me a tenancy agreement, he is saying it will be a verbal one, I’m not sure I’m happy with this, as I don’t think I have any come back if things go all wrong.  Can I insist on a written contract or should I go along with this?

From everything I have read here http://www.privatehousinginformation.co.uk/site/138.asp, i understand that he has to give you one. I would insist on getting one, because without one you are in the house ‘illegally’ if that makes sense, he can say at anytime that he gave you a room just for a little while – rent-free of course! – and now you are not leaving his house…!
