    I suspect that one needs to allow for a tenant going bad, after the usual pre-tenancy assessment process. I've had it happen a few times. And - I suppose - having a project installer go bad - despite a previous good record is similar in that it's just one of those things which we all hoped would not happen.

    In this case his tenant went and stole stuff from the neighbors - an important distinction.

    You would hope so wouldn't you.
    Especially if they have more than 1 tenancy under their belt and are 'habitual' tenants.
    They should know the ropes and what is expected of them just as a LL should know the law and their obligations.

    The term "professional" tends to apply to those selling a product or service.

    Experianced is probably a better word.
    You can understand people new to being a tenant may get themselves in trouble but be treated a bit more leniantly by the TT but experianced tenants should know better.

    Why is that the landlords problem?
    I'd leave it for the tenant, neighbour and the police to sort out.
    In the past, I'd probably hang the tenant by the neck until he was dead but these days that seems to be frowned upon.
    *sigh*

    Can a tenant make a claim at tenancy tribunal against landlord"s agent for exemplary damages?

    Yes, refer to (e). The agent represents the landlord so in the end, the landlord takes final responsibility.

    landlord, in relation to any residential premises that are the subject of a tenancy agreement, means the grantor of a tenancy of the premises under the agreement; and, where appropriate, includes—

    (a)a prospective landlord; and
    (b) a former landlord; and
    (c) a lawful successor in title of a landlord to the premises; and
    (d) the personal representative of a deceased landlord; and
    (e) an agent of a landlord
