Moving Out Date Now Changed

Recommended Posts

Had a date of 4th July to leave my flat by the letting agent.

They called a few weeks back and said could I move out earlier as they had someone to move in so I said fine and I could leave on the 15th June.

They now call me 2 weeks later to say the owners wants to move back in but not before July 4th.

So basically I have moved all my stuff out, cancelled most things but still have to pay the rent until the 4th July.

Also some poor bloke who planned to move in on the 15th June and had the relevent checks etc is now trying to find another place.

I dont not have anything in writing but is their anyway I can force the owners to accept the verbally agreed date of 15th June instead of 4th July???

Not only have my messed me about but also someone else who had planned to move in after me.

Cheers for any advice

James

Letting agents are a bunch of shysters. :angry:

Even though you don't have anything in writing, document everything that happened (including the date of the telephone call), and write a formal letter to the letting agent, explaining that you have moved out in June as agreed. If you give the letter a suitably legal tone and make sure it's printed on some decent thick paper, it may well work. After all, you are in the right.

How did you get on? Assume you had already paid your last months rent anyway, so hopefully no worries there, but what about the deposit? If it is the owners moving in, they might be extra "vigilant" with regard to a full repaint, reupholstery, rewiring etc that LL seem to insist on each time a tenant moves out. (in my experience)

Good luck

As the revised date has all been verbal then you can move out any time you want up to and including July 4th. It's the written contract that counts. The (small) downside for you is that you are liable to pay the rent up to and including July 4th.

Don't forget to video the entire property after you have cleaned it, just before you leave, to make sure that you get all your deposit back.
