Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Was this offer made in writing via your Solicitor? Have you now exchanged COntracts?
I look forward to hearing from you.
no it was an email sent to my estate agent.we have now exchanged and completed, the buyers saw my estate agent a verbally accepted the 2 weeks of rent, but have now changed their minds and are taking me to court!
hi any views yet?
Sorry for delay.
Well, you have absolutely nothing to worry about!
Only if you had offered the 4 weeks payment, in writing by your Solicitor in correspondence with your Buyers Solicitors or ideally inserted as a condition in the Contract, would this be enforceable.
As all you did was offer the 2 weeks payment via the Agents, it is questionable whether this was enforceable, but to ask you for 4 weeks rental is ludicrous!
I really don't know who, if anyone, has advised them to take you to Court over this, but they don't stand a chance.
I hope this puts your mind at rest.
