yes they do
I mean as a certain time has lapsed, do I have any rights to that unit.
No, it was only us who used it
i believe so as it is the only rear access to the building
they mentioned once about ten years after the start to remove all items in the unit but they never came back to us after that to check up this was done
and nothing was ever said since
we are vacating the premises and are just completing the schedule of dilapidations which is going to be checked by the surveyor on thursday and then hand the keys back i presume. at the moment we are in a tenancy at will rolling on
I would imagine so as they are a big company
the new landlords bought the unit in april
how do you mean if an additional lease was agreed.
so we would have to wait another seven years and then it could be claimed?
I see, are you aware of how quickly the landlord needs to act with regards ***** ***** dilapidations as we finished the works to turn the unit back to a shell last thursday and they have been informed last thursday but the surveyor has only made an appointment to come this thursday rather than a sooner time. Are they doing this on purpose in order to try to claim that we owe rent up until the keys are handed over, bearing in mind this is a tenancy at will
the tenancy at will can be terminated at any time and as far as we are concerned has been and the works to yield up have been completed last thursday
ok, yes I have read up the 56 days protocol and it did seem a bit bizarre.
I just thought that the tenancy at will can be ended at any time by either party
as it is stated
im just confused as i don't know when that time is and therefore how long am I paying rent in an empty unit for as obviously the business has ceased and I am not making any money in that unit
i presumed once the works of dilapidations have been carried out and the surveyor agrees then the keys are handed over and the payments stop?
in terms of rent
sorry matt, you are getting an excellent rating don't you worry
is there a certain way you end a tenancy at will
whats happened they have given us a price of 22k to do the works
we have done it for 5k
and now awaiting inspection
written notice i take it is something like. " we are serving notice to end our tenancy at will at alexander's, dated 30/09/2014'' via email
to the landlord
we just cant afford to keep paying anymore as the business has really suffered and we are broke as a result
hence moving out
there is no specific serving of notice on the tenancy at will except that it can be done immediately
the lease just refers to the 1926 act
as this is a new company is there any specific way to find the correct address to send the notice to, as i know if you send to an address of the company that isn't stated for notices then they can say it is incorrectly served.
I presume all I can do is to ask the managing agent as the landlord is a large company and does not communicate directly through us
thanks matt the clarity makes things a little less stressful. regards
