If the property estate agents say on the web about a property

Customer Question

If the property estate agents say on the web about a property that it has off road parking and after all contacts are signed then later down the line find that the specified parking which was allocated to the letting property is not the landlords space and now there is nowhere to park. Can I stop paying the rent and move out straight away?

Hello,

It would be advisable to first speak to the estate agents about the issue and point out to them that you were misrepresented into entering into the tenancy agreement and that you are exercising your rights under the Misrepresentation Act and common law to set aside the tenancy and move out.

Whether or not the estate agent agrees, you have the right to treat the tenancy agreement as if it never happened and move out.

You may have to pay rent for up to the time you occupied the property, depending on the circumstances and then try claiming all or some of it back, unless the estate agent agrees that you do not have to pay any rent.

All the best
