FOR JOMO1972 that was a rental agency agreement
FOR JOMO1972 Not sure about the type, Assured shorhold tenancy if that is what you are looking for...
Well actually the landlord did not know about it
We both discontinued the contract in November which we had to leave the propert by 30 December. I do appreciate this is my reponsibility. She was to pay the last months rent. Would I be able to ask the agency to at least split the outstanding payments as we both were on the contract?
IFOR JOMO1972 I could get her sign a personal agreement to make all payments, would I be able to get her to pay the bills? i believe I could try to talk to er again but I do not want any spoken promises. what should I state in the agreement if so?
FOR JOMO1972I did not sublet as her name was down on the contract when she has moved in. She has signed a copy at the agency.
FOR JOMO1972 the landlord did not know that I have moved out but they knew about the second person as she has signed the same agrreement adding her name on it
FOR JOMO1972. I have rented a house via letting agency - who I have signed the contract with on behalf of the landlord. If you wish I can call the agency - landlord. They knew about the second person as she has signed the same agreement as me.
yes she did live there
I am not sure. I just used to collect half of the value of the due bills from her and transfer the money online to the authorities. I should ask for a copy of an agreement from the agent tomorrow, the one that she has signed as well as it looks like I do not have it, As far as I am aware she has not even given back the house keys to the agent after moving out. As she has left the propert the last, there was some rubbish left which is affecting my bond.
If she has signed the agreement as I did I believe we have not only equal rights on the property but responsabilities as well. Please correct me if I am wrong.
As i do not want any trouble and I am keen on paying the outstanding rent etc.but I need to be sure I can claim from her.
She was the only person in the property for the last month of the contract.
And this will be a good lesson to learn not to trust anyone in situations like this.
what would I have to do to claim?
Well she has even asked me if I could wait for the last payment as it was just before Christmas time, but when she has texted me that I replyed that the agent will not wait and she has to make the payment. I did not find out about the payment not been made until today. So in summmarry I would be able to claim at least half of the debt?
Well many thanks for your time and information. I think I will gather all documentation prior to making any action.
