I am having some qestions here it would be appricated if anyone know anything about it.
My friend and I have been living in a rented house together the contract is due to end in the end of the month. I just received a letter from the estate agents saying that they are going to renew the contract for another 6 months and there will be an administration charge £200. They charged us the fee as well when we signed for the first contract.
They have not done anything to us apart from receiving the rent, whatever happened to the house we always run to the next door where the landlord lives.
I am just wondering if it's by law we have to sign a new contract after the old one is due? I seem to remember in the past after the first contract is due we can leave anytime as long as I notice them a month before hand. And is it legal to charge such amount of money called administration charge as I have never heard anything about it before?
Thank you very much for your help. xxx
