    Is "an immediate surrender" established by, say, a letter from the tenant declaring their wish to vacate right away?
    Yes, except that - if T fails to vacate - L cannot enforce it (unless it is executed as a Deed); simple Agreement to Surrender is unsupported by 'consideration' [see my CONV. FORUM thread re 'Contract Law- basics'.

    Please read carefully what our Jeffrey has to say: I only go from common sense and remember what I say below. Our Jeffrey has years of legal experience, swotting and exam taking behind him!

    P.P.

    1. There is now no such thing as "sealed" (except for Company seals).
    2. If T agrees a variation in contract, that CAN be enforced in certain cases- but not if:
    a. L would be ending AST within its first six months on s.21 procedure; or
    b. variation is an Agreement to Surrender- which is unenforceable, although an immediate Surrender is.

    personal agreement between landlord and tenant

    I have an agreeable tenant who will work with me. I have passed the two months whereby I give to her the notice to quit.I understand there is now 4 weeks when she can give to me notice to quit.My enquiry is about the "personal agreement between landlord and tenant" that is mentioned in a notice form.How does one present this personal agreement. Do I write out something that states we have a personal agreement for her to leave- say in three weeks- and she signs it?

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

    In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

    IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
