Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I am happy to help with your enquiry today.
In most cases, private landlords ask you to pay at least a month’s rent in advance. Your landlord will usually ask for a tenancy deposit, too.
If you pay rent in advance and a deposit at the same time, you should make sure it's clear:
You should ask for a receipt if you pay cash for your rent in advance or deposit.
Also, there's no legal limit on how many monthly or weekly advance payments you can be charged. If you have complaints regarding the estate agency you should raise a complaint to them since they have taken you a twelve months advance rental payment.
Is there anything else I can help with today?
If they want to change the date, both of you will have to agree. Changes to a tenancy agreement are usually only possible if both you and your landlord agree. If both of you agree, the change should be documented in writing, either by creating a newly written document outlining the tenancy's terms or by changing the existing written rental agreement.
I can see you have requested a telephone call. Is this correct?
I'm not able to take calls at the moment, but the request will be open to other Experts to help you. I am however available and happy to continue chatting on the platform.
