Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
Does the Landlord live in?
you can sue for x3 the deposit. Yes, you can leave early.
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.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
No formal letter as such. Just set out your position. It can include the fact you are terminating.
Does that clarify?
Yes, but you are better off doing it sooner, rather than later.
Does that assist?
Hand them back.
If it looks like a tenancy then it is a tenancy.
You have exclusive access. As such it is a tenancy.
they are wrong. It can only be a licence if the landlord lives in.
