Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You have given 2 weeks notice, is that correct?
Hi Alex, I actually sent an email in July, which they say they did not receive.
OK -did they acknowledge it?
Have you got a sent receipt or read receipt?
Hi There, no. so where do I go from here. I did send a letter, but again they deny receipt. Simply send 1st class post. Agent has been terrible since day one.
Do you still have a copy of it?
Ok - taht is fine,
You would be required to give a months notice, because you have in effect rolled over a month
So you have to see out that period
But I did the email and letter on 03 July to stop on 30 Sept.
even out of contract?
so 30 days?
You can still move out
But if you have sent a letter and emailed then that is proof is you have it
Yes even when the contract runs out you go onto a monthly rolling contract
Therefore even if you go over 1 day you have to see out that month.
So you gave notice in July
So that is over a month and therefore you are good for time of the contract
So when am I liable for payment to? Yes sent email on 03 July and sent letter. to move out
Yes you are liable for rent up to the end of September
As that is the notice period you have given
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They say they did not receive the email or letter and liable until the end of the October. In addition, they say I needed to notify the landlord and not the agent; as although through an agent the landlady self manages. Is this nonsense?
Dont worry about the notice, I would agree with you.
You are liable until the end of September and thats it
You have copies of emails and the letter, that is all you need
So I do I argue this?
Great thanks. What do I do if they disagree and keep the deposit?
You can then issue proceedings for the deposit back
So if I gave notice today, when would I be liable too? i
But you gave notice before.
If you give notice today its 1 month
Okay they said they would take it from today and it would be end of November.
No, its 1 month
But forget that
You gave notice properly you are out 30th Sept
Can I clarify anything else for you?
