    • no you don't respond to DCB(l)'s willy waving. yes Mcol will show progress.
    • Am looking for some advice, and i know you guys are always helpful   My parents moved into a rented accomodation back in the early 80's and have a standard tenancy agreement covered under the 1977 rent act.   As a sitting tenant, the landlord did virtually no work to the property, with my parents maintaing when needed. We lost my dad a few years back, and my mum is struggling to maintain. We have had major issues with electrics and drainage which we approached the landlord for with no replies for last 18 months. We did all we could to work with them.   I have done as much as i can do, but am aware it is quite unsafe and we managed to get the local council to help. They assessed the property remotely, and sent a list of repairs that the landlord needed to perform within 6 weeks. After tradesman have reviewed the repairs Include: Removal of an unsafe conservatory Rewire of entire property - including new mains Repairing a partially collapsed sewer. Repair/replace damaged single glazed windows. Making fire safe   The landlords have been in contact and started some works, however - am very aware with mum being on her own, with COPD we need to keep her sheilded.   Are the landlords obliged to put her in alternative accomodation while the works are carried out? What precautions can i make to ensure the tradesman are compliant with COVID-19 regualtions (We have not allowed any internal works to begin as yet)? Is there an alternative way out of this? Can i approach the landlords asking to move her into a more suitable property considering the works needed (4-5 weeks probable). Should i seek advice of a property solicitor at this point? Can they immediately raise the rent to market rate? (I think they/we need to appoint a rent officer) as its quite low at present. Is there anything we need to be careful of not to break the tenancy rules?     My parents have been benefiting from the low rent, but have installed central heating, new boilers etc, lots of repairs to drive ways and maintenace. The place is on a fairly large space and they have always maintained the gardens. Personally, i would prefer to move mum into more suitable accomodation - but she loves this place and i know will struggle to leave.   Any tips on how to handle any of the above!   Thanks!              
    • Hi all,   I have had an ongoing case open with TMO since Feb 2018 against EMC. Decision was made in my favour in Feb 2019, but I am yet to receive any of the refund.    I have just followed this up for the 1,000,000th + time with TMO and am now finding out that they are struggling to get the company to comply (not surprised!).   Has anyone had any luck either receiving refund or getting in contact with the owner?   TMO have removed them from their list of accredited dealers and reported them to Trading Standards and looking into what extent they are still trading, but I'm hoping to get names/contacts for anyone affiliated.   I gather the owner of the parent company - Crown Motor Direct is Nadjeem Kahloufi - has anyone managed to contact him successfully?   I also gather they are still trading as Chobham Central Garage - has anyone had contact with them recently?   Citizens Advice recommended I go through small claims now, which I'm reluctant to do as decision already made in my favour. Issue seems to be more in holding someone accountable.   Any help/advice/details even if seem minor are greatly appreciated!   If anyone wants to get in touch to discuss compiling details/evidence, etc feel free to email me at iwantmymoneyback20@gmail.com 
    • Should i reply them that i intend to proceed with the case   Since they were given 28days to respond how do i know if they have responded to the court..does it show on the MCOL websit

Using a letting agency I signed up for a new tenancy and picked keys up. But when I went to move in the entrance gates were padlocked. The agents have advised me that the business below the property is in dispute with the landlord and I can't move in!! They have offered me another property which has one less bedroom and not what I want. I've no idea what I'm meant to do they say they will give me my deposit and 1st months rent back but I've already give My current landlord notice, I've also made arrangements to transfer utilities over and now have to cancel them.

 

So I have a new tenancy agreement a bunch of keys and less money into pocket but no idea what my next step should be!!

From what you posted,sounds like the letting agency pulled a fast one on you, knew before hand about the dispute with the landlord and business below the property.

 

But all the LA where interested in was getting your money and signature on the dotted line ...........

 

See what other CAG user advise, but sounds like you could sue LA/LL for breach of contract ?


Just say No to 0870 and 0845 Numbers,Use

Either ask current LL very nicely if you can stay for another month & explain problem

or accept new temp accom offered at zero rent to you, until new LL sorts out his dispute and you can take possession of the larger flat.

LL has defaulted on his Contract to supply for which you can claim cost of equiv accom and other related costs eg phone calls to re-arrange utilities and nec storage costs for around 2 weeks.

Do not sign AST for temp accom and get everything agreed in writing pref on LA letterhead,

 

 

Not many LLs, LAs or Ts understand the concept of there being an unwritten contract to supply / occupy before the AST starts.

but legally you are in a strong position, esp if the AST was due to commence the day on/after you were given the keys.

You must mitigate your losses by finding new property asap, compensation for temp alt accom (budget hotel etc) is normally allowed for max 14 days or at Judge's discretion.

You probably need to take a view on how "legitimate" your agent and your landlord are as paying out money and then finding yourself unable to get it back because agency is effectively unsuable would be bad.

 

Is this a genuine agent signed up to a reputable ombudsman scheme, or a tiny company with no assets and potentially a bit dodgy.

 

Do you know who *your* landlord is? Is it the same as the landlord who has been locked out? The landlord can be chased for breaches of contract by the agent, but that is hard if agent wont tell you who landlord is, or if landlord is a company.

Thank you for the replies, the lettings agency appears to be genuine established business they have three offices. They gave me the landlord phone number and email address and advised when I signed the ast that they just let and don't manage the property. The temp accom they offered just is not right for me, but told me rent was cheaper. I wanted to look at another property instead and they turned up without any keys so I couldn't look around what a joke!! Now I'm waiting for them to ring me with what's going on and have been waiting for 6 hours now.

 

Not sure what the next step will be, but I think I need to put a nicely worded letter together.

You will be able to claim all your out of pocket expenses and for compensation for the disruption/distress.

Make a note and keep all receipts for any and all expenses in connection with this, even travel, phone calls etc.

Can anyone help with how I word the letter? And what sort of compensation I should claim? Am I entitled to equiv of 2 months rent as I got no notice? Should I endeavour to contact the business tenant for a witness statement as to when the dispute started?

Regards Joan

Just keep records for now, and all emails etc. until you are sorted and in a permanent place; then you can write to LL/agent for compensation, and you may possibly have to take them to court.

Keep all options open as they may well offer you some deal?
