  1. I will say exactly the opposite to all tenants. Stick to your guns and defend your rights !!! The number of sleazy, dodgy, abusive, exploitative and crock landlords and letting agents is incredibly high, not only in my personal experience but I got a very experienced solicitor from a citizen advice center confessing it to me, and they take advantage of every tenants' weakness or naivety. And they are especially abusive and exploitative to tenants who have health problems and depend on benefits. And remember, many of the advisers here are LANDLORDS !!! Which side do you
  2. You are right, Aviva. I already contacted a solicitor today. She made an appointment for the end of next week. Funny enough, the landlord did not like the idea of my solicitor examining the document and overlooking the entire process while he, of course, does not make a single move without his solicitor. Dodgy person... Thank you.
  3. I found out that my flat is quite damp and there are huge patches of black mold on the wall behind the drawers of the kitchen’s cupboard and other places. The landlord verbally agreed to terminate the tenancy agreement before its term so that I could move to another place. I asked my landlord to allow me to pay one month with the money of the deposit ( DPS ) so that I could use the “saved” money to pay for a new tenancy agreement when I find another place. I am preparing a document ( to be signed ) where all the above is agreed by both parts. However, it may take two or three months
  4. Due the uninhabitable conditions of my flat ( dampness and extensive mould ), my landlords agreed to let me terminate the tenancy agreement before its term and asked me to write a document about this agreement and they will sign it. I wrote it but I would be grateful to whoever helps me to improve it. Here is the text: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DECLARATION Date: ____/______/________ We, Mr. XXXXX and Mr YYYYY, agree that the tenant Mr. WWWW can terminate his tenancy agreement, signed
  5. Hi Steve_M The deposit is of the DPS scheme. So, is there some deadline for the landlord to ask DPS to release the money ? And will the DPS organization release the money straight to the tenant ?
  6. Hi Aequitas I am not entirely sure about what you meant with “it should be returned without delay”. As I understand the money of my deposit was handed over to a Tenancy Deposit Scheme organization by my landlord, where is kept. Do you mean that if my landlord ask the money back from the TDS on the exact day of the termination of the agreement and delivery of the keys, I will get it right in the next day ? By the way, I do not know the exact details of the procedure. Once the landlord asks the money of the deposit back from the TDS, this organization first send the money to
  7. The landlords ( 2 partners ) omitted information about very noisy neighbours. My flat is a semi-basement. It is in underground on the side of the street but has access to a bent garden on the opposite side. On the first floor, right on the top of my flat there is a framing shop with a very noisy owner who drags heavy equipment and material and hammers its frames. As if it was not enough, the next shop, in the left side, is a butcher one. Its workers keep chopping bony meat with continuous noisy blows. The flat does not have proper insulation against damp and as result the wooden floor i
  8. I was told that a tenant has the right to terminate the rent agreement in 6 months even if its term was for one year as far he gives a written notice to the landlord one or two months before ( I am not sure about how long before it should be done ). Is that correct ?
  9. Does the law stipulate a deadline for the landlord to return the deposit to the tenant after the termination of the rent agreement, the tenant having moved out and the property is in good order ?
