Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Could you please explain the situation a little more - were you in arrears please?
I moved into this factory 3 years ago the land lord never signed the lease. The Landlord died and i believe the property was sold on.
The old lease which was never finalised was in a company name. The new landlords gave me a new lease in my own name dated 14th August 2012,.The Landlord then put bailiffs on to me to collect arrears of rent on the old company. I paid them several thousand pounda
and then took some solicitors advice. which was that they cannot collect from me any monies due under the old lease.
I took out an injunction which stopped the distress warrent. The solicitor also told me that the lease was faulty and that i had security of tenure.Tjhe landlord then came to me offering a deal, I referred him back to my solicitor. Nothing has been resolved about who owes what but there are outstanding issues.The landlord then seved notice on me to give up the premises in 1 month.Yesterday the landlord came to the premises and demanded the keys. I declined and said he would have to deal with the solicitor who is not available until Monday,
This morning i came to work and the locks have been changed.
Is it possible to get an injunction over the weekend to stop the landlord
When will you be there
the issues raised in the injunction were never addressed, The landlord gave up chasing me for money and asked me for a deal. I reffered him back to the solicitor. Nothing was resolved.
Is it form N16A ?
It is yes. N16a
Does that help?
