Hi there, it states
'2.57 During the last two months of the tenancy, upon minimum 24hours prior notification, to permit the premises to be viewed during working hours and or at other reasonable times including at weekends by prospective tenants or purchasers who are authorised to do so by the landlord or his appointed agent. Except where mutually agreed otherwise with the tenant, the landlord or his authorised agent or representative will accompany these viewing appointments.
2.58 During the last two months of the tenancy to permit, at the discretion of the landlord or his agent, a for sale or to let board will be displayed on the premises.'
However, the landlord hasn't given us our two month notice as she still wants the rent being paid for her, so hoping we will play nice and pay the rent and stay until it is sold, we do not wish for our possessions to be on ahow on the Internet for the purpose of her selling the house. What if the house is burgled??
If the landlord was to give us our 2 month notice on monday when we are in contact with her, the move out date would be 19th June. Our tenancy runs from the 6th to the 5th of every month. So would we still be liable for a whole month rent or just part of a month??
Yes thank you so much, that has made things a lot clearer for us and we will be having words with the landlord on monday.
Do we need to have this notice in writing from the landlord? And not just a text message or verbal conversation..
Who would we speak to if they don't abide by the tenancy agreement rules we have spoken about here? Like if they refuse to not enter (seen as they have a key) or they demand they have to do this and take photos without our consent?
This is all we needed to ask you about, but we keep getting a message up saying to subscribe. Will we only be charged the £38 once for what we have achieved today? Or will this be a recurrent fee as this is not what we wanted to sign up to. We just wanted the information for this one issue..
Thank you for your help
On monday the landlords father came round with the photographer. My partner and I expressed that we'd spoken with a solicitor and that they were in breach of their contract with us by attending the house that day. We said since they were there they could take photographs of the upstairs and bathroom and create the floorplan. The landlord was rang by her father and he came back to us and said that the landlord was giving us the 2 months notice. The same day the estate agents we had rented from contacted me and told me they had the photographs originally taken so the landlord could have them for free, not the extortionate amount she said they would charge her, (she said she had contacted them but I found out she hadn't when I rang myself) I told her father that they could get the photographs from the estate agents, and it was left at that. I received a phone call today from the estate agents saying they have taken over the selling of the house because I messed up the landlords plans of selling privately because I couldn't provide her with photographs. I messaged my landlord and told her I understand that the estate agents is taking over. Do I liase with them now? Or is it still with yourself, and I got a snotty text back saying they've taken over the selling because you wouldn't let me have photographs of my house and the estate agents were going to charge me. So I just messaged back saying well someone from either the estate agent or yourself is lying because we have been informed that photographs from the estate agents are available to you free of charge, and that until you serve us a notice then no entry unless for maintenence and no for sale sign goes up...
We have been served with our 2 month notice now in writing. However the address on the letter is different from the address we have in our tenancy agreement. Is she required to give us a new address at the time she moved house? Seen as she is our landlord and we may need to contact her regarding any issues with the house.
