thanks for the feedback.
No, and no termination clauses. Here is what the contract says for what regards ***** *****: (which is something i would like to avoid)
RIGHT OF ENTRY
If at any time:
(a) the Rent, or any part of it remains unpaid for 14 days after falling due,
whether formally demanded or not; or
(c) if any of the grounds set out in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988
(as amended) being grounds 2, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 or 17 are
made out (see Definitions);
the Landlord may give written Notice to the Tenant that the Landlord seeks possession of the Property. If the Tenant does not comply with that Notice the Landlord will bring this Agreement to an end and re-gain possession of the Property by complying with his statutory obligations; obtaining a court order; and re-entering the Property with the County Court Bailiff. When the Bailiff enforces a possession order the Tenancy shall end. This clause does not prejudice any other rights that the Landlord may have in respect of the Tenant’s obligations under this Agreement.
If the Property is destroyed, damaged by fire or other insured risk (not due to the neglect or default of the Tenant) and is unfit for occupation and use the rent or a fair proportion of it according to the nature and extent of the damage sustained is suspended until the Property is fit for occupation and use.
If the Property is not made habitable within one month, either party may terminate this Agreement by giving immediate written notice to the other party.
Thanks a lot.
can i therefore tell them that, after having asked for legal advice, there is no ground for them to keep asking the refund of that fee (provided that a new tenant will be found and i am responsible to pay rent until that moment).
i will pay for any fee and expenses that the landlord will have to face for the new tenancy
I will not pay a single pound related to the fee that the landlord has paid to the agent
Last 2 questions:
1) the agent is saying that, until we find a deal on the money they are asking, they won' put the flat on the market. And i will leave London at the beginning of December and i want to secure the new tenancy asap. What shall i do?
2) i know is bad to say but, if we stick with our opposite positions and we do not settle, is the "bad" reference the only consequence from not paying the rent? They certainly evict me, but in this case is not a problem because i will relocate anyway.
Thanks a lot
