Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020
About 5 days ago 74
My letting agency are looking to evict me, because I had my friends dog in the property when the owner turned up unannounced on a Sunday evening at 9.30pm, the dog was collected not long after this.
I understand it says in my contract that I am not allowed to keep pets in the property. However, I don’t own a pet, but I occasionally look after my friends dog during the day.
I have informed the letting agency, and discussed this many times with them and they have said it wasn’t a problem as long as the dog didn’t live there.
They are now want to evict me giving me 7 days, they are also saying I owe rent until the room is occupied. However they have done nothing to start this, there is no advert and there as been no viewings in the week they have given me to vacate.
Are they allowed to do this even though they were aware of the situation and never gave any formal warnings this would lead to an eviction where I am liable?
Also my tenancy agreement runs out on the 7th March, would they be able to charge me anything after this date anyway?
