Concerned that letting agents might be trying to set me up for their losing the keys to apartment
I moved out over a month ago, sent the keys back only a few days after via signed for recorded.
I have taken screenshots of the tracking confirming picture of the parcel and signature.
I also asked for confirmation from my managing agents, who are different from the letting agents, asking if they can tell me if the letting agents received the keys. The managing agents come back to me saying yes the letting agents have received the keys. I also saved this image.
They were not going to commence the moveout process since I gave notice long before the final day of the tenancy and they said they would only do it after it officially ended which would be weeks from that date.
So several weeks pass and I get an email from the letting agents asking if I have sent the keys and if so what they look like. stating that they received some keys but there was no message in them to say which apartment they have no way of knowing whose they are. I replied detailing what the keys looked like and didn't put a message in for security as if anyone opened it they would know exactly where to go.
Now it has been a week or more and neither the letting agents or the managing agents are responding to my requests for an update on this.
Due to the lack of response I am getting concerned they may try and 'stitch me up' and say that it is my fault they don't have the keys or they never received when they have actually lost them. Also I do remember in the move out email I got that it said something about if the keys were not returned you would still be liable to pay rent.
Is there anything to be concerned about on my end given I have the above evidence of them saying they received the keys both from the royal mail tracking and the managing agent confirming the letting agent had confirmed with them they had them?
