Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Yes you would be justified in doing that. As you said it seems unfair as they move the goal posts.
But you should certainly question it as it seems unfair and contradicts itself.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Hello Alex,I have only now got the screen back. Could you put this lease clause into perspective please. How significant is it. One of my concerns is that not making all aware that if a tenanrt wants to enforce a condition they will have to pay any costs could encourage others to take action which is not necessary and not generally supported. On reflexion I feel I may be being pedantic but hope not.Can you give me any reassurance that my thinking is reasonable?
Hello Alex, If this is the case why does the lease say that they require an indemnity from the complaining tenant?
