have you viewed the property?

Yes veiwed the property wemt threw openrent for all chexks but nkw wants me to pay him dorect

Who showed you round the property? Have you actually spoken with LL?

So you have paid 5 weeks deposit thru openrent and he sent it back? Then you paid 5 weeks deposit into his company account ?

No i paid 300 poumd deposit to secure the gouse threw open rent tyen he sent it striaght back asked me then to pay it to his company which i did but now all my checks are complete he wants me to pay him direct bit the deaal was 1 year upfront as im only staying 1 year but wants me to pay all in his company account but ive never even met the guy was a girl that did the veiwing

that does not sound right. It was best to pay thru open rent . Shame you paid at all. I would not send a years rent off. You can check if he really owns the property thru the Land Registry for Just £3

I know i thought the ssme i wasent ginna just pay him 1 year threw his company i know paid 300 to secure the house

I dont even know the guys name

Or have i even seen a tenency agreement

As him for evidence of ownership, such as an insurance certificate
