  1. That doesn't make sense to me though - it states the tenancy WILL continue if I don't leave. Nothing about the landlord needing to agree with it. I understand he could serve me with notice but other if he chooses not to then surely he can't force me to sign a 12 month contract and would have to honor what was in the tenancy agreement.
  2. Hi, hope someone can advise me on this. My letting agent is telling me that at the end of my current contract, they want me to sign a 12 month contract otherwise I will have to leave. I looked on my tenancy agreement and it states the following TWELVE MONTHS beginning 6th july 2017. If the tenant does not leave at the end of the fixed term, the tenancy will continue, still subject to the terms and conditions set out in this agreement, from month to month from the end of the fixed term until either the tenant gives notice that he wishes to end the agreement as set out in clauses 6 and
  3. Hi, I wonder if someone can help me with this I am coming to the end of my tenancy and will not be renewing with my current letting agent. They have told me they will start arranging viewings within the next month, and that they will give me 48 hour notice prior to each viewing. I work 9-5PM and would much rather be in the property while someone is viewing it however they have told me no, and that they will enter whatever time is best for the potential new tenants. Is there anything I can do about this? There is a clause in my tenancy agreement that says I allow the landlord or
  4. I do appreciate all the responses, whether I agree with them or not. I will take all the advice given here and contact the letting agent on Monday. Thank you
  5. Not really. If the basis of the 1500 is because of the risk to property, it doesn't make much sense at all. A small old cat in a part furnished vs 2 dogs in a fully furnished. The cat is at more risk of doing damage? Sorry,still seems unreasonable to me. I understand fully we shouldve told the letting agent as soon as we got her. Considering the circumstances of losing my mum and the neighbours telling us they didn't pay anything, we didn't see this as a priority. Despite this, I still feel it to be an unreasonable and unfair request. Not justified at all when you take into account
  6. Partly furnished. We own most of the furniture here. The landlord owns the couches beds etc but she doesn't go near them. She sleeps most of the day due to her age and ill health.
  7. Understand all of the above and spoke to the letting agents yesterday regarding this. Still doesn't justify the one cost for us and not the neighbours. If the neighbours had to pay the same then fair enough. It is unfair for us to be expected to pay the price they quoted. The apartments are the exact same, what reason do they need the 1500 off us that they didn't need the same for the 2 large dogs next door? That's my issue with the entire thing. Oh and as well as a washing machine replacement guy taking photos inside my home.
  8. We've spoken to the neighbours though. The letting agents just said yes to their dogs. No agreement to clean or any additional costs. That's why I think it's unfair. How can the letting agents reasonably justify our cost? I have no issue what so ever having the apartment cleaned when we move. It's the holding us at ransom for another £1500 on top of our original deposit that bothers me..
  9. I asked them yesterday and they told me they asked if they could have the dogs and were just told yes. I don't see why I can't just ask them if the cat can stay then? If we paid the deposit they'd be holding over £3000 of our money in total.
  10. Yes the original agreement we signed. We've already acknowledged this to them. It's just the unreasonable demand of £1500 they want considering the neighbours didn't have to pay this for their 2 dogs! Surely they'd have to provide justification as to why we are being asked to pay that for a small old cat when no deposit was paid next door for 2 large dogs?
  11. Hello, hopefully someone can advise me regarding this. I moved into my privately rented property a year and a half ago with my partner. We didn't have any pets and the deposit we paid was 1500. We rent this property via a local letting agents. A few months ago my mother suddenly died and left an elderly female cat which we took in as we were advised she was unlikely to be rehomed due to her age and medical conditions. We didn't find it priority at this time to inform the letting agent we had the cat as our neighbours who rent from the same agent and landlord advised us they had to p
  12. We have already paid it now. Would we be protected in any way? Very concerned as we have thousands to lose.
