does is specify 24 hours or 1 months notice in your contract? i think you will be tied to whatever it says, unless your landlord is willing to release you from your contract early.
#2
out contract with the first landlord said one month but because of the extenuating circumstances of 2 robberies within 6 month we can move out without the immediately. But I havent signed anything with this new landlord its njust been passed along and is out of my hands. Im so ****** off =0(

If you can prove that the estates agent said 24hours notice (which sounds stupid as it is) then they will have to refund you the money.
But ... to only give 24hrs notice before you plan to move out doesnt give the landlord enough time to find a new tenant. So unless you have any evidence or proof, you will lose £400.
Or you could just stay for another month.

Look at your tenency agreement if it says one month's notice then you're bound to it.
Did you get the immediate notice period agreement put into writing if not again you're stuck.

one month is the norm it's not thier fault you have been broken into. I was in the same situation got broken into by our neighbours within a month of moving in but cost us a fortune to move and break our contract.
By not getting a new contract with the new landlord theres no rules and he has your bond.
sorry hope it all works out for you

technically it is the old landlords fault weve been broken into as last time we were broken into (6 months ago) they didnt fix the door properly. And yes as stupid as it sounds the landlords said we can waive the one month in advance rule as the extenuating circumstances but we only have verbal on this. the old landlords are mor than willing to say they gave us a a verbal contract saying we can move out without the one month notice but the new landlord is being a **** and not accepting it. The new landlord may i add, has STILL not fixed my door that was broken on sunday night and say it will be at least friday until they fix it.

surely as they have not fixed the door since the break in they have broken the contract so the contract is in forfit.Go to your loca CAB they will be able to point you in the right direction.

You dont say or ask them. You tell them.... 'The door does not lock, the apartment is not safe to leave unattended. It is also not safe to stay in. Due to this I am with holding any payments until this has been resolved.

The deposit has to be held by independantly from the landlord in case they try and keep it. If you move out immediately due to the property being unsafe - the independant deposit holder "may" side with you and return it to you although this might take a month or two.

i agree but he isn't making anymore payments he wants his bond back. get some legal advice

The deposit is held by the agent you will have to take action in small claims court to get your deposit back but u will have to evidence that the previous agent had agreed to a 24 hour notice.
Lots of issues here and you def need legal adv from cab.

Did the orig landlord and agent advise you of the change in ownership and agency at any point?.Do you have any correspondence to back up what you say?:thinking:
If i get u then the landlord will let u go and you dont owe him is that right?
So is the only issue the Bond?If so take the agent to small claims court but be prep to evidence what the orig agent agreed since in my humble experience the court respects stuff in writing and not what he said she said .

Worst case lose 400 but have peaceof mind at crimbo:santa: hope it helps :thumbsup:

P.S. You should get something in writing from the landlord confirming he is releasing you from the tenancy agreement without penalty to be on the safe side
