Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Who provided the wording for the advert please?
But it was mains operated and this was in the advert?
So the advert was not misleading?
Yes that's right though the word power was used 'mains operated POWER shower'
Ok - but do you really believe that someone would rent a property purely based on a shower?
Not at all but one of the tenants is slightly disabled and they are trying to claim that they are having to use the local leisure centre's shower because it is so weak
Ok - but I assume they looked round the house before they rented?
It's clearly and obviously rubish but the law relating to misrepresentation may not see it like that hence my concern
Yes they did and they loved it
In order to claim misrepresentation one must show that there was a misleading statement and they were induced because of that.
Unless they told you they wanted the property because of the shower and indeed they inspected the property, I can't see how you would claim it
Cab you define induced please?
A property is selected for its condition, type, garden etc.
The fact it has a shower is a bonus rather than criteria.
Well they have to say the ONLY reason they signed the tenancy agreement was because of the shower and nothing else
I can't see that.
I can't see a Judge accepting that
Therefore although there may be a claim I would not worry
Indeed you could counter claim for the lost rent
If any claim is below £10,000 it would be a small claim anyway
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If there is a claim there then is there a chance we could be found guilty?
There is always a chance of course, litigation is never certain.
But I would say it is unlikely
I just can't see how someone would rent a property because of just the shower
They are trying to claim that it's a compulsory requirement for her disabled needs
If you didn't know, they didnt say and they inspected then if it was that important they could have checked it
Before they signed
Can I clarify anything else?
How much does it cost to open a case to sue someone pls?
Are u still there?
It really depends on the cost of the claim
