Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you got anything in Landlord to agree it in the first place.
But the Landlord never objected in the first place?
Ok. So it was all done, assigned and then he objected?
The Landlord can't do this. You have a lease, they do not. So the Landlord can NOT give them a new lease.
its your property and you have the lease.
The Landlord rent the property which you have the lease for.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No. Its a contractual matter.
Its breach of contract. So he can pursue the Limited company for the remaining term
Does that clarify?
Sorry. I dont know why he is doing this.
He appears to be terminating the lease yes.
That way if he terminates then you are released
But if he gives the lease, you are released, no more liability
You can sue the Landlord for the deposit and the tenant for any money they owe you
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
