No, nothing in writing.
Sorry for the delay - BT blocked my replies to you!! A deposit of £650 was paid at the outset and the owner said she would be placing it in the deposit protection account.
Sorry for the delay. BT have been blocking your site. I have now spoken to Daf Vaughan, my co tenant, and when we paid the first rent of £650 the owner have us a written receipt for the rent and deposit of £650 with a footnote which merely said "Deposit with DPS".
Daf has message on his mobile phone sent by the landlady on the 5th July asking for possession on or before 19th July. We have only had the original Tenancy Agreement for letting furnished dwelling house on an assured shorthold tenancy with a fixed term of 6 months commencing 12th October 2014. Nothing else in writing. What is our position? Do we have to vacate on or before Sunday? We don't have another property in mind because with over 12000 students in Bangor there is not much available for local people.
