I want to know if they can actually ask for more money when a contract was not signed between both parts in order to change the dates from the 23 to the 27, and also how should I act against the lack of maintance of a property that I've just moved in.
This is a well recognized letting agency well known in the UK. We are speaking bout Martin and Co Sales and Lettings.
I've just signed it today because of the pressure and I dated it with date of today the 27th
From the 23rd towards to the 22nd of May 2015.
Thank you Jo,
Just clarify again the point of when the rent should start from the 23rd, why they asked to pay the difference from the 23rd to the 27th of May and why the contract states that I would need to leave by the 22nd. What if they don't do a reduction of the rent in the last month of the tenancy?The overrall cleaning of the property is poor. When I say this is because they didnt even swap the floor and the patches on the wall are more than clear. Belongings of the Landlord, such as paint pots an internet modem and some other stuff were left at the property.
The oven, you cannot open it, or is hard to do so when is closed. I don't want to imagine whenever it gets warm and is closed.
I got access because I borrowed the keys from them and they promised to get me a copy tomorrow, first thing in the morning.
Do you think I could still claim a reduction on the rent by all of what i've said and if so... how would I do this if I've already paid them from the 23rd to the 27th and this month in advance until the 27th of june?
I don't understand. If they have already taken the 109 pounds from me to change the payment date from the 23rd to the 27th of May, but not the contract, affecting me at the end of the tenancy, since I would have to leave earlier (22nd)...
Why would I claim for the days where I had no access to the property? They could just be under the same argument that they were waiting for me on the 23rd to sign the contract and I did not show up?Besides, I got the keys today and access to the property
I've recorded a couple of videos today, one of them shows thousands of hundreds of what it seems to be small black eggs around the boiler, located by the toilet. Im concerned now about what kind of property im getting into
I've also been clarified about the oven. The handle bar is broken, and yes, i cannot open it without it. The only way would be by putting the fingers from one side of the oven pulling the door to the front.
I've attached a picture of both things. Please let me know how should I proceed with both as the first one seems to be serious and related to health and safety.

Thank you Alex for that.
I would need help indeed. Thank you for looking after.
Yes 109 but not in the contract I signed. In the contract I signed yesterday, it shows that I would have to leave the property by the 22nd of May 2015. However the lady said that if I cancel the standing order the last month, I would not have to pay that and I would pay less. What does guarantee me that if is not in a piece of paper?
Yes again. The state of the property is awful. We are meant to start moving by Friday the 29th. I've already got the keys since yesterday. Anything I could do to demand anything from them or compensation?
I appreciate your time and dedication Alex.
Do not worry if you cannot answer in the timeline.
I rather get a well dedicated answer rather than anything else.
I had the inventory done yesterday if that is what you are asking me for
No. Is not in writing. What the agency says is that there would be a reduction on the rent in the last month. I asked them to put that in writing
