okay so i signed this contract for a new flat, i moved in on the 10th of september only to find that nothing was ready for me
i have pictures showing a stained bed mattress, a stained couch, dirty entrance, lights not working, broken door and the list goes on and on
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
they breached the points in the contract i sent you. point 14 precisely, and the contract says i can terminate the contract if any of those points were breached. i need legal advice on going through with this

Thank you for your reply. I will go through the attached agreement and will be with you shortly.

okay thank you
are you a bot or real?

I am the real thing .

You have few remedies that you can explore-

Firstly , you can ask for compensation from your Landlord , if the house was not clean or in a habitable condition for your inconveniences .

You can get the house professionally cleaned and forward the invoice to the Landlord( though you would have to notify the Landlord beforehand and provide the Landlord with couple of price quote for the job)

You can unwind the contract ,If tenants have been misrepresented ( has been told- the house is habitable or house is secure /clean etc when it is not )then tenants can unwind the tenancy agreement within 30 days from the start of tenancy.

oh great, i want to unwind the contract
whhat do you suggest i do next? threaten in the email or...
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
i am not sure how to act on it, but i know i want out
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
will i get reimbursed with my money and depost? because i payed 6 months in advance , i dont want to loose my money. this here is the challenge i think

Unwinding the contract means parties will be put back in the position they were before entering into the contract.

Which means that any money given by you to the Landlord would get returned back to you.

Remember , it is unwinding of the tenancy and not surrender of tenancy.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
okay. What do you suggest i do now?

Write a Letter to the Landlord by providing all evidence( pictures) of the condition of the house /and highlight the issues in the property and refer to the clause 14 as well, and notify that due to the above reasons you are looking to unwind the contract,.

You were misled to believe that house would be professionally clean and relying on that , you have entered the tenancy agreement.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
right
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
should i leave the house already or wait for their reply

No, I would suggest writing to the Landlord and notifying him, you can unwind within first 30 days of the tenancy , so you still have time.

I trust  this helps.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
