Hello, this isCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today and I will be happy to advise you to the extent possible on this platform. I am sorry to hear about your tenancy,
The answer is as long as the tenancy was clear in specifying that the 4 conditions must be met by your landlord and not meeting them would result in the tenancy being void then yes.
I understand. If your understanding was different i.e. unless the 4 conditions are met you will not be moving in and therefore not liable for the property. If that's what you want to do you may respond to them stating what your understanding is (tenancy is void unless all conditions are met by the landlord) and you may want to require you deposit and advance rent to be refunded (or all conditions to be satisfied).
Ok, thank you. Yes, it is clear to me that, as long as they recognise that the 4 conditions (conditions precedent) weren't met (it seems that did as per the above), and failed to rectify the situation, you can request all your money back. Just send them an official letter / email stating all which has happened to date and confirm that the agreement is void and request your money back within 7 days. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any related questions. i am happy to help.
It shouldn't be too problematic, provided the tenancy made it clear that they have to meet the conditions.
Sure, yes, you can.
I can see them. Then have a look at what are the termination rights as well i.e. what happens when the special conditions are not met.
There is nothing which expressly gives you a termination right when the special conditions are not complied with. However, you have the right to deem this agreement terminated/void, as it was your understanding that the special conditions were the conditions precedent to you entering into this agreement. Therefore, please consider doing as suggested. I hope this helps.
Please. I am glad my answer could help. Many thanks for using our services.
I think you did the right thing. You attached relevant evidence and required your funds to be refunded. I guess we have to wait for their response.
That's good as they have admitted this. You may restate your position - you deem the agreement void and unless they refund you the funds you will take action in small claims court. The difficulty you have is if they reject it and remedy the situation i.e. comply with the conditions to your satisfaction.
