Alex Watts : Hello my name is Alex and 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, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : When do you pay your rent and when did she give notice please?
I pay my rent every 6th of the month and she gave me notice few days ago
wHEN EXACTLY I WILL RECIEVE MY ANSWER PLEASE ?
Alex Watts : Yes you have to remember that I am not on here 24 hours.
Alex Watts : Do you have it in writing that the landord will renew your agreement please?
Alex Watts : Its bad news then I am afraid,
Alex Watts : If the landlord has not commiteed the renewal in writing then it is subject to contract
Alex Watts : That men
Alex Watts : That means subject to you both signing a new contract
Alex Watts : Either party can pull out of the renewal at any time up to the new contract is signed.
Alex Watts : This means the landlord can give you notice.
Alex Watts : By law the landod must give you at least 2 months.
Alex Watts : The landlord has given notice now which takes effect from 6th April when rent is due.
Alex Watts : This means you do have to be out by 6th June.
Alex Watts : Sadly all you can do is delay moving by refusing to leave.
Alex Watts : If you refuse the landlord would have to issue possession proceedings which buys you around 6 weeks
because i wont be here
i llbe back home
Alex Watts : The matter will be listed in court and the judge can grant possssssion.
Alex Watts : But sadly that is all you can do.
Alex Watts : The landlord is in their right to refuse to renew and give you notice.
Alex Watts : There is nothing you can do about that
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
but if i am not here in that period of time what hey can do ...ill be back at the end of july
Alex Watts : They can get a court order for possession. That buys you 2 months at the most.
Alex Watts : Once they have possession you can't get back into the property.
from 6th of june?
Alex Watts : Whenever the court order is.
Alex Watts : So if proceedings are issued for possession and they are heard say 15th July and the court makes a possession order the landlord can Get bailiffs in
Alex Watts : Then once bailiffs take back the property you can't get back in
Alex Watts : You are evicted.
bu if i want to leave earlier?
not on 6th of june ....before that
i am obliged to pay rent till the ending date?
Alex Watts : You are bound by contract to 6th June so technically you are liable yes.
i have a last question
Alex Watts : I am sorry, can I clarify anything for you?
Alex Watts : Ok
because now she will want to send agents with buyers to view the property ..am i obliged to let them in ?
she said that if i a not home she mey come herself to show it ...and i don't agree that
Alex Watts : If your contract says you are yes.
Alex Watts : You need to check the wording.
Alex Watts : If it says you will allow reasonable acesss for viewings then you have to sadly.
but when i am available ,right
Alex Watts : Not necessarily, depends on the wording of the clause in the agreement.
Alex Watts : If it says reasonable access you don't have to be there.
it says :Allow possible new tenants and buyers to look at the property (on at least 24 h written notice) during the enancy
Alex Watts : Then you need 24 hours written norice.
Alex Watts : It does not say you have to be there.
Alex Watts : I am sorry
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything else?
Alex Watts : I am sorry it's not better news. But all the beat
Alex Watts : best
