Hi Folks

 

Two weeks ago I instructed my agent I wanted to break lease. They advertised the property. My neighbours told me today that on Wednesday last week there were about six real estate agents in the property without my knowledge. It looks like the current agent has been given the sack.

 

Does this leave me just paying the rent for another 3 months? do I have any rights at all? The new agent has advised me to make a claim at the court to seek an order for a settlement figure.

 

Anyone have any experience of this?

As far as I an aware - no one has the right to enter the property without your consent.


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!

Have a good read of your lease agreement. Look for break of tenancy clause, and the one

that mentions living without landlord/agent turning up without due notice. Sometimes

they hide a condition that states if you give notice that you have to let them show

the property to prospective tenants. However, you still should be given ample nnotice that

someone will be coming round.

 

Good luck!

Thanks both

 

I don't think there is much I can do about the lack of notice. I am worried about the fact that it was being advertised and now it isn't. I am waiting for a response from the agent.

Maybe you could get onto them and say that you assume as advertising has ceased that they have found a new tennent to take over the lease?

Phew

 

Finally a response. it wasn't other agents after all but prospective tenants from the existing agent. Some notification of people coming would have been nice. Anyhow can't complain too much as they found new tenants, meaning I don't have to pay two rents. They move in six days after we leave.

 

Thanks for your help all
