Sorry for so many questions...
1. I remain in occupation
3. I was given 2 months notice to leave the property yesterday on the 28th May 2015. My understanding is we have to leave by or on the 28th July 2015.
4. Sole occupation but the landlord lives in the apartment below ours in the same building.
5. I signed 6 months contract on the 26th December 2014. this will expire on 26th June 2015.
6. Yes I paid the deposit and he has protected it in a deposit protection scheme according to my knowledge.
It was just a verbal notice served in a very disrespectful, offensive manner. We have received nothing in writing except for the threatening mobile text message saying we ought to shut up or we will be leaving somewhere else very soon.
