    • (5:32) Jonathan faces a dispute with his tenants who insist they were promised a rent £50 less than what is written in their signed tenancy agreement. Despite attempts to resolve the matter, they’ve only paid the reduced amount for the past two months, resulting in arrears. Jonathan wonders whether to pursue the issue or accept the reduced payments and wait for the lease to end before finding new tenants.
