I first want to know if the landlord can terminate my terminate agreement for the reason that I worked from home.
my tenancy agreement*
What is the exact definition of work here - "Not to carry on at the property or allow the property to be used for any profession trade or business."
My agency/landlord even didn't say sorry for misleading the information. So I want to request again that they compensate for this. They terminate my tenancy agreement for occasional working from home.
But to confirm the Landlord is ending the contract at the end of the fixed period?
What amount of compensation are you seeking?
yes. at the end of the initial six month term.
I paid 6month rent upfront.
I didn't want to pay rent until I have broadband but I have no choice.
So on what basis do you consider a 100% reduction reasonable on the basis you only have not had broadband and I assume the property was otherwise habitable?
I wouldn't have moved in the property if I knew that there was no broadband.
So I want at least one month rent which is £2000.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Do you think this is fair?
I do not
Does that help?
Can I clarify anything else for you?
As long as I don't generate money from subletting or using other purpose of this property, I can work from home. Right?
I dont think that is unreasonable.
That is what I am doing right now
Ok. That's clear then.
No for now.
