The reason I donâ€™t want to continue my tenancy is because I did not understand what the actual situation at xxxxxxx was.
Before signing the contract you told me in an email it was a houseshare but since moving in you have told me that â€œyou like to run the house like a schoolâ€.
I have only now been made aware of your rule that I am not allowed any guests after 11pm. This was not explained to me before I signed the contract.
This situation does not fit my understanding of a houseshare.
I also think you are in breach of the contract in several areas:
Section 2.1 states that â€œThe Landlord agrees that the tenant may live in the [Property][Designated Room and Shared Parts] without unreasonable interruption from the Landlord.â€
I would argue that the fact you(The Landlord) seem to spend most days and evenings in the shared kitchen constitutes an unreasonable interruption.
Also the fact that I am unable to lock the door from my room to the garden will invalidate Section 2.2 of the contract which requires you to have contents insurance, because your insurance will be invalidated.
I also think it is unreasonable to expect me to keep my belongings in a property that can not be secured.
Section 4.1 of the contract states that I am allowed to find a replacement tenant after three months, if I can find someone suitable.
I would argue the definition of suitable would be someone in permanent employment with references form their previous Landlord.
Given that in your last email to me you claimed to have 7 people interested in the room but none of these were suitable and that you have stated to me you exclude people based on their ethnicity I think If I am still here in 3 months we will have very different ideas of what is suitable.
I think that the situation is sufficiently different to what I was led to expect to give me grounds for vacating immediately.
I therefore request your agreement for me to vacate today and would like my deposit and 3 weeks rent refunded in full.
