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.
Do you know what type of tenancy do you have? Is it an assured shorthold tenancy please?
3./ We want to see proof that the rent was paid to the real landlord and that it was all legal. - I agree and you have a right to see receipts that the rent has been paid correctly.
What can landlord do? What are our rights? - The Landlord must give you everything in writing, you have a right to this including copy agreement and any notices.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
He MUST have a Court Order.
And you would know about this - it would take around 2-3 months
Can I clarify anything else?
Legally for that you would need a Court injunction preventing Iwona
