Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.Has an order from possession been Made?
at the eviction hearing Judge have orderd me to leave within 14 days .I also make a counter claim if I have any.but no thing in writing yet as time running short.regards max
And what are your grounds against the landlord?
I got tenanacy agreement with my late friend (land lord) that A year notice is required to vacate the room.they have only given me a six month notice in 2010 not yearly notice as we agreed.
Then you can sue for breach of contract.For this you would need to issue a claim. You can do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk - you will have to pay a fee but this will be added to the claim.You can claim back the EXTRA costs you had for a room for 6 months.Therefore if you were paying £300 a month for a room and a new place was £400 a month you can claim £100 a month, so £600 in total.You can sue for breach of contract.You will be surprised how quick matters are resolved once proceedings are issued.
