I have an assured short hold tenancy agreement for 12 months
My contract is £1200 per week. We offered a discount to pay £ 900 per week. Landlord came back first proposing a reduction to a £1000 per week. When we ask them to clarify and renegotiate, the landlord said his final offer was a reduction to £1000 per week until our break clause (in 6 months). I don't think it is fair, as it will force me to move again in 6 months. When I first moved in I intended to stay for longer that one year, if I liked the flat, which I do.
I would like to know if I am entitled to any form of compensation, if the landlord will have to pay for my moving expenses in case I have to move and if I can force them legally to give me a discount for the duration of my contract, given they are not given me access to a part of the flat they said I would have access. and How do I know if the discount they are offering is a good offer.
Regarding the amount I am entitle to for not using the roof terrace is that it was the decisive factor to rent the flat. The landlord new before hand the roof terrace could not be used as he needs a license for that. So he lied to me. I would not have rent the flat ih he had told me the truth. He advertised the flat with it and I have proof of that. Paying for my moving out, would only be far the only reason I amy have to move again in less than 1 year is because the landlord is only willing to give me a discount for part of my term, i.e. 6 months. Legally can I force him to extend the discount offered for 12 months, i.e. the duration of my contract? Thanks
