Hello Stephanie my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.What is it you want to achieve please?
Forgive me my fault, I was not clear enough,
If you have a tenancy until 2018, on what basis are they saying YOU are liable for their legal fees and estate agent commission etc?
In short no - you are renting it.
You are NOT liable for:
1) Solicitor fees
2) Estate agent commission
3) He gets deposit.
You are in a contract, he is in a contract until 2018. You could make him delay the sale and not do anything until that time.
You are NOT I repeat NOT in law obliged to pay anything beyond your rent obligations.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes that is right.
They are the ones wanting to sell etc, its not your fault.
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
If they have agreed to release you in writing then no, you would not be bound.
If the release was conditional upon you paying the sums in the letter etc, then yes you would be liable.
Does that clarify?
I would agree, its not reasonable.
Does that assist?
I would agree, they have been totally unreasonable. Does that help?
No problem - if I could invite you to rate.
