There are two parts to this matter.
In the first instance the Landlord, Raven Houseing Trust issues a notice to quit on my garage, and changed the locks. When I went to the garage as per the time given before the notice would take effect lets say 14 days I found the locks had already been changed.
1. Notice was issues on the wrong Garage.
2. Locks were changed before the period stated in the notice expired.
3. goods went missing from the garage as witnessed by the Garage Manager.
I decided to remove the goods from the garage and gave raven notice via their Garage Manager by email. He did not reply for several weeks.
Locks changed on the garage and Raven want to bill till date of return of keys.
There has been no access to garage since Lock Change.
Who is responsible for rent after lock change as I have no access.
Thanks. Just to get this absolutely clear. Lets say I am in areas for a domestic garage and the landlord issues a notice and changes the locks. At which point does my duty to pay the rent on that garage cease. ?
As above so unless I can prove contents removed I cannot claim ? This is secondary. I was thinking if they already broke the legal rules by access who is the burden on ? The goods in question did not have invoices in the boxes so to get this would be near impossible. DO I just simply loose the goods ?
Its a stand-alone garage
..........If the landlord however has simply given you notice to quit then you are not liable for rent once he has removed access......is there a case or something I can read to understand this better ? I am looking at how this argument can be shown to be the law ?
I am now a bit confused. If there are rent arrears on the garage then the tenant that has been locked out is liable until the landlord gets another tenant, which is one month ? Sorry to bother you but this is the last issue that outstanding. This applies to domestic garages that are not part of a dwelling. I assume that means that are not rented as part of a dwelling....
Its a stand alone not related to any property
tenancy is not defined by date its open/recurring yearly to be terminated with a weeks notice by tenant.
I will have to check
Notice was supposedly issued on the wrong garage and acted on a week early.
