had my house advertised with an estate agent for sale or rent after a month i went to another one as the first one was not doing anything and they found me a tenant within a week, i told the to still leave the property for sale as i would prefer to sell than let, the tenant moved in a month ago, received a letter today off the first estate agent saying they were withdrawn the property as i have a tenant in it and could i pay them a withdrawal fe of 115 pounds. please note i havent withdrawn it they have. i think it because the other estate agent got me the tenant. any advice given

Did the first firm allow you to use a second firm within their terms and conditions?

Was it an exclusive contract? with a smaller sale fee?

If you have not actually withdrawn it off the market and still want to sell with a siting tenant; have you told them that?

i have read the contract in small print they say that if i withdraw the property or they withdraw a charge of 99 pounds plus vat is payable, on the contract i didn't date it i just signed it if that's a get out clause, also the boxes stating sole agent etc are not ticked so they cant get me on that. i have put a letter of complaint in to there head office stating that i had told the manager to keep marketing the property regardless of the tenant but she ignored the request, i think its ridiculous that they can take your money then a couple of months later say we don't want to do this anymore give me some more money.

I dont think that would stand up in court at all; they pull out of a contract and you have to pay; I dont think so.

This would come under unfair terms and conditions and be thrown out if they try that card.

I would just reply in that way and see what happens.
