Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied
Do you have a written tenancy agreement please?
Could you kindly clarify prior to selling off of half the garden did you maintain and have use of the whole garden? i.e. has you use and enjoyment of the garden halved since the sell off or did you never maintain that part?
Dear Josh-2010,Thanks for your reply.There is no written tenancy agreement.The whole garden has been maintained by me up until early Spring this year. At the moment, there is no real access to the half of the garden which still belongs to the house (or my landlord) because it means having to climb over a fence with no gate about 5 feet high and crossing the new tenant's picture window (which is embarrassing for both of us).At the moment, the half of the garden which belongs to my landlord is sealed off from the world and going wild. It is that half that has my shed in and now I have received two solicitor's letters on behalf of my landlord telling me that he intends to empty the shed, that I have no permission to use it and it belongs to him.I have written to my old landlord who gave me the use of the shed to ask him if he will confirm both that I used the shed for gardening equipment, maintained the garden and that access to the garden was taken for granted.I hope that helps.The issue has become complicated by my current landlord's lying.
Thanks. Has the old landlord replied please or alternatively do you have any other evidence that you previously had use of the garden - e.g. photos?
