Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor.
Sorry to hear about this.
Do you have a copy of the tenancy agreement? If so, please upload it.
There is an obligation to notify the landlord of absence of more than 14 days, I see that this was done.
The landlord may refuse you access to the property, as you are a guarantor, and not the tenant.
If the landlord has access to the premises and is carrying out repairs to the property and has made it clear that he will deny access to the tenants, your parents, this implies that he has repudiated the tenancy agreement and a claim should be made against him for the remaining rent paid in advance and the deposit.
A claim may be made against him online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk in the small claims court.
May I help further?
I am afraid you cannot stop that from happening but your parents may claim that the landlord has repudiated the agreement and ask for the unused rent paid back to them as well as the deposit.
All the best
You are welcome.
