Thank you for clarifying this. Mr Beach, (the prospective tenant), has previously mentioned that if we attempt to cancel the contract, he will initiate legal proceedings; do we have anything we may have to answer for or be liable for in a court of law ? My other concern is that as we will be letting him know that we do not wish for him or his family to be our tenants, this will leave him and his family homeless ? Do the local authorities have any grounds to act against us and will they be able to provide him with emergency shelter/accomodation ?
Hi. Just to give you a further update, we have told Mr Beach, (the prospective tenant) that we are cancelling the prospective tenancy agreement, but he is still adamant both he and his family will turn up on 1st September.
Should we be worried about any potential counter action they can issue against us in a civil court ? Do the local authorities have any grounds to act against us in this situation ?
Apologies, the query has been duplicated.
I have spoken to the police and they have mentioned they will only be present tomorrow to prevent a breach of the peace, however, could they assist him in trying to gain access to the property ?
As we are within our rights to anticipatorily repudiate the contract as he has not acted in good faith, what are my immediate options if he turns up at the property ?
