my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
please let me know whether you inspected the property before agreeing to rent it?
yes and they said they gonna paint and clean
yesterday they said if we are ready to sign
and they said it s ready
Ok. Then yes it sounds like you can break it
If it was signed on the condition it would be pained and clean and they have not done this, this is breach of contract
As such you can break the tenancy and sue loss and damage
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation .
But the longer you leave it the harder it will be to break the tenancy
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
this it was a conversation between us and them isn t on the contract
but i have pictures
with the house
Ok, then it is still part of the contract
If they have lied then they are in breach of contract
In any event if the house is disgusting then you can break the contract
Does that help?
yes thank you very much
i will do as you said
Can I clarify anything else ?
no thank you
