  1. Thank you Mr Shed landlord also confirmed in email that This is what I wanted.
  2. Hello, I am about to sign a 12 month AST with something that the landlord calls a "rolling break clause" but to me seems like a break clause that will only allow me and co-tenant to break contract at 6 month or at 12 month and nothing in between. This is the wording in the contract I have asked landord to add the words "at any time" in both clauses before the words "but not earlier than six months etc" but she has refused saying that solicitor suggested this wording as correct (a rolling break clause, she calls it). I am clueless! All I want is to make sure I can break contra
  3. Hi, I have moved in a rented house recently and signed agreement / inventory etc all fine and well. Upon signing, the landlord and I agreed that, as soon as possible, I would find a house mate to share the house and rent and that landlord could have final say on who would move in with me. Now that I have found a tenant who's willing to move in, landlord is saying he can't unless he sees his references (fair enough) but landlord also says that "references might not be suitable" (although he has no idea of where the references are coming from or what they will say). Landlord insist
  4. Thanks Wino, landlord should do it but what if he doesn't clean it *properly*? Basically I need to know what are the minimum standard of cleaning I can require and below which I can rightfully complain. thanks
  5. Hello, I'm about to sign an agreement for a property and move in in August. Have visited twice and am generally happy with the conditions of the property but at the moment the current tenants still there and the house seems really dirty. The landlord has told me that tenants will give it a "good scrub" but having met them, I'm not so sure they will do a decent job. What are my rights in terms of how clean the house is before I move in? I am particularly concerned about the condition of appliances in the kitchen (fridge and cooker) which looked in a poor state. Do I have the right t
  6. Don't tell me what I know already about ryanair! This time I tried the online checkin option. Today (good friday) I receive an email reminding me that I have to check in online, only to realise I'm now far away from a printer. I read the online check in conditions and read the following: "Any passenger failing to present their printed Check N'Go boarding pass at airport security and the departure gate will be charged a boarding card reissue fee currently at the rate of £2/€3 per person (or local currency equivalent). This is only available if airport check-in is still open." This
  7. On second thoughts: 1. I know we shouldn't have entered without a written agreement, but the landlord should have not let us in as well. He has let us in without a gas certificate which I think is illegal, isn't it? 2. There was, before we entered, a VERBAL agreement that the rent would be xxxxpcm. No mention of deposit or service charges or other charges. Now the written agreement has rent (as agreed) plus deposit plus service charges plus a mysterious "contingency charge" which, he says, is needed in case of damages but he would have the deposit for this. I think the contingency ch
  8. Thanks for your reply, Rosysparkle. I think our landlord, a part from not knowing the law, is also lazy and doesn't want to have any problems or worries with his letting activity. However, I must admit that he has given us a chance to review and discuss the agreement. Put in front of the possibility of having to find new tenants by himself he might agree on some amendments to the agreement as it is now. Re the council tax: Can we get evicted if we tell the council he's not really a resident? If there were legal ways for him to be a resident AND for us to be registered at t
  9. Hi All, I'm so glad I found this forum because I was really running around in circles and I hope you can help. My partner and I, plus a friend, have moved a month or so ago in a flat inside a block. We moved in without an agreement because the landlord is a colleague of my partner's and there was a trust issue invovled. After a month and several problems (including having to spend 200£ to fix the heating system) we have now received a tenancy agreement which looks dodgy. I'll go step by step into what I believe are the key problems. 1. Type of agreement: the document doesn't say w
