Watch as Scottish tenant creates hilarious video for letting agent 'forcing him out'

A video has gone viral on social media after a tenant took revenge on a letting agent for 'forcing him out'.

Sandy Batchelor was asked to make a video of his flat after being told to move out during the Covid-19 pandemic - but instead he made a hilarious film in which he lists the many faults he had found, as well as posting some pointed warnings.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Scottish actor and producer Sandy wrote: “Our letting agent asked us to make a video of the flat we are basically being forced out of.

“I wish them the very best of luck.”
