    I’ve attached both sofas, you can probably tell what’s the advertised and what’s the actual one.

    Hi Berlingogirl and Jpkeates, thanks for replying to this topic.

    They’ve done the inventory on the day we moved, we haven’t signed it yet. The only picture of the sofa we had is from the offer, which match we the sofa we saw when we visited.

    I really appreciate the help. 😊

    You have legal grounds.

    The viewing is part of the offer made, so the agent/landlord should have made it clear that there was going to be a difference between what you were shown and what was supplied.
    Not to do so is a misleading omission.
    The agent/landlord should supply the sofa that you viewed or an alternative that you are happy to accept as an alternative.

    Point them at the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

    Hi,

    I hope someone here can help me.

    We’re tenants and rented a property that was advertised with a proper sofa, the sofa was also in the place when we visited it. However, when we moved in, they had replaced it to a completely different one whoch is really bad.

    We’ve been asking the agency to remove it so we could buy our own - which is very similar to the one that was there before.

    They are refusing saying that we should have asked for it before, but how could we do this if we weren’t aware that they’d be changing it completely?

    Do we have any legal grounds on it? This is just one of a series of problems we have had with this agency.

    Thank you,
    Jonatas

    It might burn down.
    The tenant or you might die.

    Sign the agreement the day before or the day of moving in (you have to be there when they move in to check the smoke alarms anyway)....

    How soon in advance of tenancy can the agreement be signed? in this case it would be around 4 weeks in advance of tenancy start date.
    Is signing of agreement in advance a good alternative to a holding deposit? (in that it gives more certainty to the tenant?)
    When should keys be handed over...

    In which case, I think you can give notice on 18th August to end on 17th October.

    Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question.

    My tenancy agreement has a break clause in it, as I took over from the existing tenants I basically have the remainder of their tenancy term plus 12 months.

    Does the text below, mean I can give notice from the 18th June and move out by...

    royw , I can access my landlady’s home. Which is good as there has been quite a few times I have had to help her after falling. If her son does decide to proceed with the rent increase I will be outlining the benefits of my rent remaining and the risk a new tenant could potentially bring. I have also...

    I am hoping that someone can help.

    I have lived in a top floor flat above my landlady/landlord for 7 years. I do not share any facilities (my flat has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room). There is a lock on the door to my flat.

    Since my landlord passed away (3 years...

    Do you have direct access to the rest of the landlady's home from the hall or does she have a locked door? If the former given LLs vulnerable state it would put her at risk if they let it to a stranger. Might be worth slipping it into the conversation with daughter who seems to be rather more concerned...

    Apart from the bit I posted, the other relevant bits are:

    I would be refusing the increase as I have been helping my landlady out for several years, and not requested payment. This enables a saving of around £150-200 per month to them. It would also be disrespectful as he has recently requested further help from me at the same time as potentially raising...
