Here's hoping someone may help

My son signed a tenancy agreement with a letting agent

but has not taken possession of the property, due to having difficulties obtaining the deposit.


The agent has told him he is liable for the full 6 month rental amount .


is this correct , ie is there no cooling off period etc


many thanks in advance

No Tenancy exists until son occupies, BUT there is an unwritten 'contract' to supply/occupy and your son should withdraw his Application asap to limit his liability eg 1 month rent + re advertising costs.

What is stated 'start date' of AST?

Thanks mariner51

he signed the agreement on the 11/06/16

he is having marital problems so to reduce the tension whilst counselling

he and his wife agreed that he would go for a short term rental

he opened a new bank account on the understanding that his salary would be paid direct into the bank and the bank would assist with an overdraft enabling him to pay the deposit

but they have now said he needs to operate the account for a few weeks etc etc

my son has spoken to the agent and they are adamant that he is liable for the full 6 months rent even if he does not occupy

sorry if it is too much detail but i feel i need to explain that this is not an excuse looking for a get out clause
