Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. I am a solicitor in England and Wales but regrettably I do not speak Romanian. What type of tenancy agreement did you have with your brother? and when was it due to terminate?
Is it a joint Assured Shorthold Tenancy? When the term lapses you have to sign to agree to it being extended. When its a period tenancy and not all joint tenants agree to extending it becomes a period tenancy and you should be able to give notice to terminate before september. If your brother is the only joint tenant refusing and is using you to keep in the house then you might have no choice but to take him to court to get released from the agreement.
Thank you for clarifying. But why do you keep signing the agreement? You and your brother are the joint tenants you can give notice to terminate the agreement, you do not need to keep on being liable for a property you do not use. The concubine can get their own place or take over and pay their own rent.
I will send you an offer to speak on the phone if that will help, however I do not speak romanian so as long as you do speak english I will be able to speak to you
Because you have a joint tenancy agreement and until you all agree to terminate it you all remain liable. Why do you keep signing it?
No problem, when you accept the call offer I will be notified and will call you
Thank you for your further information, are you saying now the person in the property has not signed the tenancy agreement?
Why then are you carrying on signing the contract? The joint tenants ( the people who signed the tenancy) should have given notice to terminate the tenancy and it would be the agent's problem to try and get rid of a trespasser. She is not a joint tenant, she does not pay rent so she is not even a lodger. I do not see why you have carried on maintaining the agreement when you no longer live there and she is not a tenant. the agent is obviously taking advantage because they have got away with it for a while now. Give notice, stop paying and they will have to deal with her a a trespasser living in the property without the landlord's authority.
