Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi thank you for your message, sorry the delay. I appreciate this is important so I am looking to assist you as quickly as possible. In terms of the situation if a contract has been agreed to rent the room then it is legally binding and as such payments do need to be paid under the contract. The fact that the property and by extension the room was not viewed before signing the contract was unfortunately a risk you took that it might not be what you expected.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
I understand what you are saying but if they in fact have a valid licence then the contract is still valid.
