Being Charged For Both Check-In And Check-Out

Moved in to our rented property 18 months ago, and paid the LA the (extortionate) check-in fee as per the contract, the landlord pays the check-out fee.

A year later, the LA is acquired by a larger local LA. New contracts come through (didn't read all the small print).

We hand our notice in and are now being asked to pay £120 for the check-out fee, since this LA charges the landlord the check-in fee.

Just a quick word of warning to check all Ts&Cs if your LA is acquired by another company....

Did you sign this new contract.

You don't need to, an incoming LA cannot change the terms of your original contract just by sending you a new one

This is called due diligence whenever presented with a contract to sign, but why did you sign a new contract (if you did) as tim says you have a valid legally binding contract with both the old and the new (who take on the entire legal entity when buying out the other company) LA.
