  1. Unclebulgaria, I have an appointment with solicitor tomorrow - Will pass this matter over to them to deal with.
  2. Hi Fletch70, There is so much I could say in response to your reply, but am sorry I literally don't have the time or energy anymore.... Plus my posts are being reviewed and monitored and have to wait considerable time for them to be approved and displayed, which doesn't help.... I literally give up and although some replies have been most helpful and supportive, I can't help but feel this site is more of a hinderance to me than any help.... I will go to a solicitor for help instead... Thanks
  3. Hi Unclebulgaria, Yes. Great. That's what I want to do, to raise hell.... Can you help with a letter?
  4. Hi BazzaS, I am not sure who I should be suing... The landlord? Letting agent?.... Or what legal arguments are applicable.... That is why I have come on here for help... Bazza, I feel as though you are questioning me in a manner that isn't helpful for me.... It takes a great deal of courage for anyone to post a problem on this site and isn't easy... I have explained the best I can and without repeating myself, hope somebody can help...
  5. Hi BazzaS, Apologies if this isn't what you wanted to hear, but I really don't have the time or energy to try and seek any kind of professional psychiatric evaluation, and in any event consider myself to be of fairly sound mind and quite normal.... If the judicial system requires this, then maybe they are the ones who might need psychiatric evaluation?... I don't think my situation requires any kind of "psychiatric evaluation" and believe there must be laws in place to protect me in this kind of situation...Surely?
  6. Hi Unclebulgaria, In answer to your questions - The monthly rent amount is £850 and the security deposit was additional one month rent of £850. There were no agents fees charged, although I obviously had to pay removals costs & various other moving expenses... I was assured this was a long-term let..... The other proof I have of reasons requiring compensation including some recorded telephone conversations and emails, various expenses I have had to pay as a result of tenancy/property issues and loss of earnings/other damages.... My GP has written a letter stating ho
  7. Hi Bazza, Sorry but I find it extremely difficult to believe or accept this... If that is the case then the UK judicial system needs a massive overhaul and the law needs to be changed... In any event, I can prove other losses, expenses and damages, but even still, I do not believe that a UK court of law cannot award damages for distress, harassment and other similar issues..
  8. Please confirm exactly what you have paid to the landlords agent, other than the rent for the period of letting. Just under £6000 including security deposit. Plus removals and other expenses. You will only get the deposit back, if there are no other provable issues. The other issues are provable There are rules about fees that lettings agents can change. Is this an issue ? No Of course the situation has made it very difficult f
  9. Bazza, This is not the case at all and if you do not understand then I cannot help you. I am a human being and not simply a cash machine for landlord to use as they wish without taking responsibility for themselves. It costs a lot of money to move home and they have taken all of mine, on the agreement of a habitable, enjoyable home. As previously stated, I have been a landlady and would never dream of putting my tenants in this position. Yes I have made previously raised these issues, although many not in writing. As previously stated, I have my calls record
  10. Hi Honeybee, In answer to your questions, I was planning to pay the rent after 6 months from my income, although my income has been significantly affected by the various problems with the tenancy, as detailed in previous posts, and also the Covid19 outbreak on top of that.... Sorry if there is something you don't understand about the situation, but have done all I can to explain. No, I do not want the rent back so that I can sue the landlord. I want the rent back so that I can move out. If they don't refund my money, then they will be sued. Why should I pay rent for an
  11. Hi, Thank you for the replies and apologies if I don't reply fully to each one, or if anything is confusing but trying my best to respond. Hi Solarstan, Totally agree, some landlords are greedy and think they are just entitled to free money. Hi Stu007, The S21 just says they are seeking possession under section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 as amended. It was delivered to me in the post. Under name & address of landlord it includes the landlords and estate agents. It gives a date in August to vacate, which is 3 months in accordance with
  12. What information about the S.21 do you need? It seems to me the notice has been served in retaliation as I have discovered they have no consent to let and being threatened with bailiff eviction from their mortgage lender. The letting agent will have to communicate with me in order to vacate the property. There are also many maintenance issues and as the managing agent of the property she is responsible for these dealing with these matters, which are nothing whatsoever to do with the S.21 being sent? Her website also seems to have disappeared. She is clearly
  13. Would really appreciate any advice or help with a letter. So confused and cant think straight. Thank you
  14. Thank you for unlocking the thread. I received S21 notice this week from a solicitor. Could somebody please tell me if these are usually served by a solicitor firm or from the managing agent? The letting agents won't return my calls and has ignored my request for a refund of monies to enable me to move out. So far I have requested this over the phone and in an email. The letting agent sent me an email yesterday stating that I would have to contact the solicitor and not her. I also received an email from the solicitor berating me for contacting the managing agent and ins
  15. Please could you reopen thread and please stop closing it. Thank you
  16. Honeybee, I don't see why its relevant if or when I receive an eviction notice? My thread isn't about asking what to do if I receive an S21? You are preventing me and other people from contributing to the thread or from anyone answering my questions?
  17. dx100uk, Why have you closed my thread again and why do you keep editing my posts? Could somebody please reopen my thread again .
  18. Thank you for the replies. I don't believe the landlords are in mortgage arrears as they have just been granted a 3 month mortgage holiday. They only applied for this because I asked if a rent payment reduction/holiday would be possible due to Covid-19. I then found out that they have no consent to let and was promptly informed that they are placing the property on the market for sale and that I will be receiving notice to leave. I have had some pretty bad rental experiences before, but think this one takes the biscuit. I am also quite shocked at the attit
  19. Just had a couple of questions: 1. If tenant pay advance rent money (ie. 6 months) and the property is managed, is the letting agent required to hold that money and pay the landlord the rent monthly, or are they allowed to pass all of that money to the landlord at the beginning of tenancy? 2. If I was to take legal action for this in the future, is it generally the landlord that is liable for this, or the letting agent? Or both? Thanks in advance. Please could you also move this thread back to the residential lettings section. Anyone
  20. Hello, Please could you reopen my thread as I would like to add to it. Thank you
  21. Hello dx, So should I put the other issues in writing to agent?
  22. Could anyone possibly answer my question from post no.39, whether I should put any of this about the various other issues to the letting agent now, or wait until after have moved out? Apologies if silly question but struggling to think straight as haven't slept properly for a while. Would appreciate, thank you.
  23. Hightail, I'm not the one lashing out and clearly you've jumped on the bandwagon so to speak. I did not "admit" not giving all of the facts. You have misunderstood. I have provided plenty enough info and facts and some of the advice has been helpful. Sadly not others. Bye
  24. Bazza, Your comments are very much a personal attack and I suspect for reasons only known to yourself, you are trying to discredit my thread. Maybe you woke up on the wrong side on the bed this morning. I respectfully suggest some professional counselling might help you. I am right and you are wrong. If somebody gives poor, incorrect advice then I will respond to that and if you don't like your own medicine, then that is your problem. If you don't have anything constructive to add, or do not agree with a thread, then there is no point in commenting on it.
