Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Was the legal advice from the Trust or his own Solicitor please?
BHT (Brighton Housing Trust) employs solicitors
Ok thank you.
I can understand why the tenant is concenred.
Technically as soon as he moves out then his agreement comes to an end,
Even if you said he could move back in that does not necessarily have any legal standing
What this document will be is a contract
That means it binds both parties and would set out the rights and responsibilities
Therefore if you do not let the tenant back in he could sue for breach of contract
This is why it appears that the tenant wants it - for the reason that as soon as he moves out then the tenancy comes to an end.
However I would go back and suggests that he pays for your legal advice, if he wants the agreement looked through
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Good point. However he has lived in the flat since 1994 and in another room in thgis house since 1964, so he appears to n
appears to have a secured tenancy (sitting tenant from the old rent act)
Yes but even so if he moves out, all that comes to an end.
I can see why he wants to do it, to preserve his status and tenancy.
If you were in the opposite position, you would want to do the same.
After all you wouldnt want to lose your home after all these years.
Its just belt and braces
Does this help?
So it sounds like it's all for him, so we can ask him to pay for our legal advice. It also states in the draft contract that it is a regulated tenancy which is incorrect.
Looks like you have left the discussion for now, I need to pop out for a while
The system does show me on and offline when I switch screens
Yes get the agreement amended and also ask him for pay your legal fees.
Does that clarify?
