Welcome to Just Answer, I am a practicing solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
As a commercial tenant, you can not withhold last months rent to cover cost of moving or loss of goodwill, unless and until, it has been mutually agreed with the Landlord in the writing.
So, unless Landlord agrees to this, you can not withhold rent to cover moving cost and loss of your goodwill.
I hope this helps.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
Thank you for using Just Answer. Best wishes.
You need to check if your lease falls outside the provisions of section 24-28 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 . If both Landlord and tenant have opted out of the act , then provision of the Landlord and tenant act .
You need to check your lease agreement.
Kindly attach the relevant agreement here.
If it is a license agreement and you were a licensee then you do not have protection under the Landlord and tenant act. Licensee are excluded occupants.
That means Licensee do not have protection that tenants have in case of evictions.
