    my property was under a repossession order when i moved in!!!!

    I moved into my property on 20/01/11, on 02/02/11 i received a letter stating the house was under a repossession order. following several heated conversations my landlord managed to get the repossession halted with the solicitors, but this doesn't change the fact it was in place when I first took on the property, she knew this (it can't have happened in the 2 weeks after i moved in!!) and she just hoped it would go away...what right does she have to request money from me now i have moved out? surely she let the property under false pretences to begin with making the tenancy agreement null and void??

    PLEASE HELP COS SHES DOING MY HEAD IN!!!

    For what reason is she requesting money from you~?

    I assume your tenancy was for 6 months from 20th jan - 19th July? As we are not yet at the 19th July have you come to an agreement with her to vacate early?

      once we realised that our deposit was not held in a deposit scheme, it was the final straw and we just moved out. she says we owe £958 (which she says is 2 months rent - £475 a month) we owed the final month, fine. but the deposit we supposedly gave her should cover that. she refuses to take legal action and is just intimidating my boyfriends parents instead. if she had legal rights she would have a solicitor surely?

        Well, you should not have moved out and assumed that your landlord would use the deposit for the last months rent.

        You do owe her the money however she also has done wrong by not protecting the deposit. I suggest you wait for a legal letter to come in the post and deal with the sitation at that time.

        Sounds like she is just trying it on to be honest.

          I just wish she would just get a solicitor rather than intimidating people.

            You actually would have had far more legal rights than does your ex-landlord had you stayed put!
            The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.
