Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know briefly the circumstances of the assignment please?
You signed over tenancy rights, could you please give me a brief background to that?
Do you want to just stall the time you have to leave or carry on there?
On what basis is he trying to charge a new premium please?
Yes. You don't have an awful lot of rights sadly. If there had been a renewal clause you would have been generally ok
But you do not. What you need to do is apply to the Court for a declaration that you can renew and that he is not entitled to charge a premium
After all how can you been charged a premium twice for the same thing?
You will need to issue proceedings and complete form N208
The Court will list the matter for a hearing and decide whether to make such a declaration
If the Court does then you can renew without a premium
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes it will be delayed. I can't say what the chances are, it really will depend on the Judge. You don't have a right to renew but asking for £240,000 is extortionate
I think it will be judged fairly. It seems extortionate to be charged £180k 15 months ago and then £240,000 again now
Its £280 to start the claim
You should seek a declaration now
The Court lists the matter for a hearing and decides whether to declare you are entitled to a new lease and whether the Landlord can charge a premium
It depends on the Court listing. It may be 2 weeks before it gets to Court
Can I help with anything further today?
