Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Did you just say this so you could collect your personal effects?Alex
Ok - then you could reasonably argue that although you were entitled to collect possessions and you were prevented from doing so, this was the ONLY reason you sent the email.
Whilst duress itself only applies in criminal matters and where there has been threats, you could argue you were put in a no win spot.
You needed your things and it was unreasonable of the other tenant to not permit you to collect those.
So in those circumstances it is NOT binding.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Potentially yes, but if you get a sympathetic Judge you would be ok.
It seems unfair that you were denied access to somewhere you are paying the rent for.
Does that clarify? Alex
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
Hopefully not. Alex
