    Tenancy agreement

    I have recently asked for a copy of a tenancy agreement from a prospective letting agent. They are saying they cannot let me have this as it is a legal document. Other agents have had no issue with sending me a copy. Any views on why this may be?

    They don't sound like they are letting agent you want to use.  What other misinformation will they provide you with.

    Agreed, it’s a legal document that you have a right to, or at least a copy of, as you are one of the parties to it !

    Of course, they are wrong,  but what's more worrying is the Real reason why they don't want to give you a copy,   is it because they've let it on individual contracts for far more than a single let rent,  or have you sub - leased it to a Rent 2 rent company ?

    Just ask the Lettings Agency, which Property Redress scheme they are members of  ( They must legally belong to one of the two, or Trading Standards will prosecute them )  and ask for their complaints process,  Follow it, and THEN,  refer matter Property  Redress scheme,   who won't entertain looking at matter until you've tried to use the agents Process, or agent won't engage.

    When you said prospective letting agent do you mean an agent you are considering using to let a property? If you currently have no contractual arrangement with you, they may not want to give you their intellectual property as you could then use it to create your own tenancies without using their services.

    Tell them you'll drop in and go through it with them there then let them have it back.  If they still say so say Foxtrot Oscar
