Shared Tenancy; New Tenant - Who Is Responsible

Recommended Posts

I moved into a shared property and 3 months in the house got served with repossession notice by the landlord.

The agency is trying to claim that the property has t be returned to the state it was when it was first let 10 years ago, including removing crap from the garage (which is probably the landlords)!

I obviously have photos of the state when it moves in and wear and tear is going to be 100% due to the length of time, but im just wondering how the law is regarding tenancies that are continuous but the names on the contract change over time. Who is responsible, surely not the last person holding the ball?

Assuming a rent contract was signed, then duty of care applies only to your specified contract duration. You shouldn't be hold accountable of other people's action. If you photos got dates on it, even better.

Having said that, you just can't tell what morons will do. If morons want to do the moron thing, morons will do the moron thing.
