Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did you confirm to the Landlord that you were leaving please?
Ok - a minimum term was not agreed?
Ok - in that case if there was no contract then you can not be bound by a minimum term
You are not liable for 6 months rent or £2400
If he tries to damage your credit, which I doubt you can take him to Court under the Data Protection Act.
But as a Landlord he can't give you bad credit, he needs a Court Judgment for any arrears claimed.
If there are Court proceedings you would know about this.
So without a contract and agreement then he can not claim £2400
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you are liable for rent in the property of course, you can;t live there for free
Can I clarify anything else?
