Cancellation of tenancy


Recommended Posts

Signed up for a rental house recently on a 6 month tenancy agreement.

However, I am unable to move because of issues with my current tenancy agreement which prevent me from moving.

 

I want to cancel it but can;t find anything on the tenancy agreement regarding cancellation.

 

Please advise.

If you have not agreed to a date to move in, then the tenancy has not started yet. So you need to withdraw from the agreement.

 

If there are no terms about withdrawing/cancelling, then you just let the landlord/agent that you are unable to proceed with the tenancy.

We could do with some help from you.

Date to move in was agreed but not moved in. 

Will email landlord and request end to tenancy. 

 

Just worried that he will take me to court for it. Want to be prepared if that's the likely outcome.

Without seeing what terms you agreed, difficult to say for sure.

 

If the start date to the tenancy has already passed, then up to you to negotiate withdrawal.  You may owe a sum related to the loss the landlord has suffered, as they will have incurred costs and face a period without rent while they search for a replacement tenant. And yes they could take you to Court related to loss, so be careful how you deal with this.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi

 

I agree with others comments.

 

The difficulty you now have is that you agreed a date and signed that New Tenancy Agreement for the other Rental Property and the issue with your present property is nothing to do with this New Rental Agreement that you have signed.

 

What you need to do is look fully at that New Rental Agreement for any Cancellation/Notice you must give but either way you need to contact that Landlord and try to negotiate to end that Tenancy Agreement and I an afraid their may be costs involved to do so as already pointed out from the Landlord having to find a New Tenant, loss of rental income, re-advertising the property so you need to be fully aware of this.

 

Negotiate with the Landlord is really your only option.

 

The issue with your present property that prevents you moving can you tell us more about this as you really should have been aware of this before signing that new agreement?
