Please confirm that the tenants are the same for the August 2016 and August 2017 agreements. If this is not the case, then the deposit is not properly protected by law, but is safe for tenants. I agree that legislation today is so complex. I think the government feels safe for the tenants, but if the landlord wants to be a bastard, they will still manage to unscrew their shock absorber. But if it is not, they are simply frightened by renting to tenants who are not perfect, i.e. those with low incomes or benefits. And I think I`d be the same if I rented my property. If your temporary rent has a break clause, you must get all tenants to agree to the termination of the lease, unless your agreement says otherwise. Please understand that I have my own financial responsibilities, including paying the mortgage on the property you are renting. As such, I have to be pretty firm, I have zero tolerance for deliberate non-payment of rent. This means that if I am obliged to take legal action, I do not look at them to the end to get a CCJ against you, but I go to the High Court with the record tracking. Legally, tenants are required to remain your tenants and to be responsible for the full rent until the end of the tenancy agreement. Unless the lease is legally terminated.
You should have a term that says the down payment cannot be used to pay last month`s rent, and if it is protected, then even more. If you forgot to protect, I guess they will seek sanctions. Copy and paste what I wrote, go to a lawyer and ask them to give you a price for doing this in a simple one-sided agreement (with all the proposed changes, as they are your paid advisor). First of all, you must inform the person as kindly as he has signed a legally binding contract, say that you are within your right to maintain it for the duration of the lease or until a break clause on that contract. They must also serve you an EPC certificate, the government`s “How to Rent” document and a gas safety certificate. Owners think they can write any old crap in a lease, but that doesn`t make it valid or enforceable. The last argument we had in March was about the “guests” who brought her to the apartment and told me that there would be loud noises during her visit and that I had to deal with them. I told her once again that she should entertain her guests in her room and not limit the common space of the house.
Then she literally told me to accept it or leave the apartment. Of course, I didn`t because I told her that we clearly have the same rights in the property and that she can`t kick me out if she feels like it, especially at night for 6 hours when she brings boys home. Note: I checked my lease and there are no clear rules and definitions for customers, visitors, how long they should stay, etc. Your guests usually stay from 1 day to 3-4 days a week. And if I`m not in the apartment (on business trips or holidays, etc.), I know they stay even longer. 1. You pay the rent until a new tenant takes care of the occupancy and immediately pays the January rent (each overpayment is reimbursed). 2. You will evacuate the building within 7 days so that it can be cleaned and ready for immediate occupancy. 3. In accordance with the lease agreement, you pay for the professional carpet cleaning that you will have at the end of the lease.
