Alex Watts :
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts :
For now just to be clear the Landlord has not signed the agreement please?
Customer: The query i raised was answered with another question not an answer ?
Alex Watts : Yes. I just need to be clear that I understand your question.
Alex Watts : That was not the answer
Customer: As sated previously stated the copy of the agreement showing bother signatures were never received. What do you suggest as the next course of action
Alex Watts : Is the Landlord wanting to charge her for a period when it's empty?
Customer: Yes he is however she is paid up to 20th October and will leave today as a new tenant wants to move in on Monday
Alex Watts : ok. So in reality it is only going to be empty for a couple of days?
Customer: Yes which is fine but it hasn't been established if she will get her deposit back and if she will get a rent refund
Alex Watts : in that case she will.
Alex Watts : the Landlord can only chagre up to the date new tenants move in.
Alex Watts : the landlord can't double chagre rent for the same period
Customer: Even if she doesn't have a copy of her tenancy agreement.?
Alex Watts : So he can't charge your daughter and the tenant for the same period. Yes even if there is no signed copy.
Alex Watts : So they can't double chagre
Customer: What part of the housing act is this dawn from in order for them to take me seriously as I am meeting with them today
Alex Watts : it's a matter of contract law.
Alex Watts : If a tenant terminates and someone else moves in the landlord can only charge for the empty period. Nothing else.
Alex Watts : The landlord has to mitigate his loss and can't profit from a breach of tenancy, it's designed to put him back in the position he would have been in should the breach not have occured
Customer: Excellent this has been a great help. Many thanks for your guidance with this matter. Kind regards
Alex Watts : Is there anything else I can help with today please?
Customer: Should there be any issues once I've met with the Letting Agent can I contact you again to discuss this?
Alex Watts : of course, just out any future questions for Alex W and I can pick them up
Customer: Ok Thanks
