Yes, I was due to sign the contract I received from the agent but as I said I challenged them on 1 clause of the contract and things started to get difficult from there.
Sorry about the delay in replying you. What I really want is to see where I stand in this case and if there is any legal action I can do against the Managing agency I was dealing with.
I am now in a very difficult situation as I have already served my current landlord with a notice to vacate the property. The stock of properties in London is quite low at the moment and I have a very short time to find a reasonable place to leave.
The Managing Agency said that the current tenant wants to stay 1 month more in the property so it is unavailable at the previouly agreed date but I believe it is a sort of revange as a result of the case where I challenged them because of the break clause term on the contract.
Could you please advise?
As I agreed on the moving in date with the managing agency, I gave notice because I was required to give at least a month notice in advance.
I did not sign the contract in the meanwhile because my name was not correct on the contract and also due to the clause of the contract which I was not happy with. I thought having the email/oral agreement from the landlord would be enough to insure that it would be safe to give the notice to my current landlord.
