So glad there is a platform for tenant support – I feel really screwed!
So my partner and I have been living in a property for just under one year. When we originally looked and moved into the property, WE requested two years as we wanted to keep the high London costs to a minimum for the two years we expected to live at the property.
However, I have been made redundant 9.5 months into our tenancy, and can no longer afford the rent in London, and my partner and I have decided to move out of London.
We have the landlord 9 weeks notice, stating we would like to leave on May 16th, (one year after starting the tenancy and one years early termination).
Our landlord has agreed to this and is happy to find new tenant.
HERE IS THE PROBLEM
He has stated that on starting the agreement, our landlord paid the letting agency the value of 7% of 24 months rent (what I believe is a finders fee).
As we are ending the tenancy early, he has said we have to pay that remaining fee! Approximately £1300!!!
I understand that if we end the tenancy early we have to pay until the agreement ends (or as soon as other tenants are allocated) but I don’t see why we have to pay HIS fees?!
Can you let me know if we do have to pay this!?
