Resolved Question:

Good afternoon, I have been renting a property for the past 4yrs ,and have recently been informed by the local authority that the property can only be lived in for 10months in the year. I have been paying rent for 12months in the year .There has been multi agents that have worked for the landlord but not one of them has informed me of the 10 month occupancy. I wish to know what rights do I have as to reclaiming the overpayment that I have been paying. There is nothing on my tencey agreement be it 10 or 12 months .
and I have been lied to from the very start .I am one of 8 tenants and we have all been told the same.
Thank you. Rob

Hello I am Jamie and I can help

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: or by completing form N1 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 for trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
