Please see emails below. Reverse order. Landlord states that he and his co signer have not signed to date?
I'm sorry to hear that. It was your statement that your son was staying with you 'at the moment' and the fact that you will be solely responsible for the rent that caused me to put that into the contract. I am well aware that you will have him staying there, and this would not have been a problem.The fact that I have asked you for 3 months bank statements is perfectly acceptable in situations such as yours, where the prospective tenant has been moving around a lot in the recent past, and is simply a way to reasonably confirm that you are capable of paying the rent and do not have any outstanding debts which would affect that ability. This is a judgement I could not make from your employers reference as it states that your salary is far below what you apparently earn. I'm sure whatever legal advice you have taken will back that up.It is your responsibility to read and make sure you are happy with the terms of the contract BEFORE signing, and you could have made an interim copy for yourself so that you could review the conditions, and question any of which you are unsure.As I have signed legal documents from you, I will also need to take legal advice before concluding this matterRegardsJustin

Hello Justin.Thank you for your email.As you are aware, I received your contacts while I was working night shifts and only had the weekend to sign them, before starting a run of 4 day shifts on the Monday. I have been trying to recall what you had and hadn't included as conditions. What I think I remember is only myself to live in the property? If you can remember our conversation when I met you at the flat, my son is living with me and will be for the foreseeable future as he has been through an emotional time and is currently in need of personal and financial support.Also, after your request, out of the blue for 3 months worth of bank statements, I have looked into my finances and taken legal advice.With all of this in mind, I am unable to continue with the proposed rental of your property.I am sorry for any inconvenience and wish you luck for the future.Regards,Sally-Ann CurtisECA ChelmsfordEast of England Ambulance Service________________________________________

Apologies for not being able to go through this with you last week, if I had been five minutes earlier....!Happy to go ahead on the back of this information, nothing more required from you at this stage, all that remains is for Kim and me to sign the contracts. Once I have been to the flat to make sure its all in order this week, and Kim has confirmed that the deposit is in place I will let you know, and we can arrange the handover of keys on the 25th, when I will also hand you your copy of the contract, an inventory, and details of where the deposit is to be held.Hope you had a good weekendMany thanksJustin
