Alex Watts : Do you have a signed lease please?
JACUSTOMER-09xx4c9s- : Yes I have a 5 year fixed term lease
Alex Watts : I assume the lease says you are not to set off or deduct any payment.
Alex Watts : Therefore you have broken the lease by not paying and the landlord is entitled to evict.
Alex Watts : What you need to do is apply to the court for relief.
Alex Watts : That is you are asking the court that you be allowed to return.
Alex Watts : Really you should have kept paying and taken the landlord to court for not fixing things.
Alex Watts : Therefore apply to the court for relief and then sue the landlord for breach for not fixing
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
