I am asking on behalf of my mother, who owns a three-bedroom house. The property was leased to an estate agents that offer guaranteed rent whether the property has tenants or not.
My mother signed a contract for two years, so she was due to receive the property back in May 2016. As such, she arranged a sale and a buyer has been waiting on hold since to exchange.
The problem she has is that the tenants are refusing to leave. It turns out that the agents have sublet the property to Fulham council, so the family are refusing to leave until the council find them alternative accommodation. It would seem the agents and the Council are doing nothing to expedite the matter.
We have contacted a solicitor and have already spent £1000 for them to obtain information on the terms of contract, send some letters and get advice from a barrister. They have suggested that the next step would be for them to start legal proceedings to get more information and they have not even served any kind of notice yet.
My parents are both elderly and retired. They cannot afford to spend another thousand pounds, for no further progress to be made. We would really appreciate some advice on how to proceed.
