    It depends on exactly what your agreement with your landlord says.

    The council and utility companies won't consider you liable, but the agreement may make you responsible for paying for things.

    You CAN sack the Agent, but it will prob take 3 mo. Read your Agent's Terms of Business Contract you agreed for severance payment.

    Not in any tenant find that I have agreed to.
    I make it clear to the agent that I want a one-off fee; my tenants generally stay for 3+ years.
    I also use my own tenancy agreement so that agent cannot sneak in any clauses beneficial to them....

    1. The son (S) owns the property;
    2. S is named as LL in the tenancy agreement;

  • Landlord's possessions in property

    Looking for some advice. We rent a property from a landlord which is managed by an agent.
    Once we moved in, we discovered several very large boxes of the landlord's possessions stored in the only cupboard.
    Due to this, we have ironing boards, hoovers, etc floating around...

    The landlord does appear to be getting cheap (i.e free) storage at your expense, i think you have acted totally correctly and in a fair manner, the landlord is taking the mickey.

    You're describing a situation where the facts clearly show you had a tenancy long before any paperwork was produced by one side, and produced unilaterally in response to a court claim. When there's an agreed tenancy agreement where the person or company stated as landlord is by the facts of the case...

    I can say from first hand experience that this is not strictly true. I went to court this week and the court accepted that the landlord is the person to whom rent was paid i.e. who got the cash in their bank account.

    When I rented I never had a tenancy agreement on paper, but since I...
