Is there any­thing in law to state my two rent cheques have to be of the same value?

“The only per­son who de­cides how many pay­ments of cheques will he ac­cept is the land­lord him­self. No one can force him on that how­ever good luck.”

NOOR VAZEER

“Go to their of­fice and de­mand to see the con­tract signed by the land­lord. Chances are that they haven’t got the land­lord’s sig­na­ture yet, so I'm guess­ing that is not a con­tract yet cos both par­ties haven’t signed. They just want to keep the com­mis­sion.”

LEE CARTER

“Prop­erty con­sul­tants and agents are mid­dle men, they never own the place. Ac­cord­ing to the let­ter, you should have in­sisted on meet­ing with the land­lord per­son­ally in or­der to dis­cuss this mat­ter. True you signed a legally bind­ing con­tract with the con­sul­tant but there are what ifs to con­sider. If you in­sist on meet­ing with the land­lord in­stead of mak­ing pay­ments through the con­sul­tants I think they would ac­cept the cheques. Hope­fully you have learned from your mis­take. Next time in­sist on meet­ing the land­lord. At Least you will have a clear pic­ture of what you are sup­posed to do, some of these mid­dle men just want ex­tra cash for them­selves so you can't trust them.”
