Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this.
For now please let me know if you have a written agreement please?
No, that was with another tenant who recently moved out and is currently unavailable.Landlord wants to rewrite agreement in the names of three current tenants.
Do you rent a room or the whole house?
Just one room, on the third floor, the ground floor is occupied by the landlords family, the second floor by tenants of the landlords brother, the third floor by three of us, who are foreign nationals.
Thank you. At present are you on any fixed term or is it month by month?
Currently month by month as the contreact held by previous tenant was not transfered as landlord wants to change the terms
The Landlord can only change the terms with your agreement.
If you do not agree then he can end the licence you have to remain. This is because you have a month by month agreement. This gives you no real security of tenure as if you had a fixed period.
Therefore sadly it is a matter of negotiation as you are on a fixed term, if you refuse then it may be the landlord gives notice
I am sorry if this is not the answer you are looking for and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you very much but my friends and I have decided that we will look for another property rather than deal with this person who continually changes his mind.
Ok - is there anything else I can help with today?
