Hello everyone, especially the legal people amongst you.
I am in DESPERATE need of legal advice!
I am sure this has been discussed in one form or another before but I would like to make it very personal and specific to me if that is OK.
I have been in a virtual argument with my landlord for quite some time now.
I own an apartment which I let out (sub-let effectively) and MY landlord is insisting on money for :-
Subletting registration – £78
Sub letting consent – £48 (I think that’s the cost)
The registration is expected each and every time a new tenant moves in!
My argument is that this is totally unreasonable, unfair and extortionate!
Then they are trying to charge me £78 each and every time they send a letter. Now surely this is extortionate for something that cost pence to produce and a couple of pounds to administer.
Be damned if I know why I have both these company names on the letter heads / invoices.
I think there is a huge principal at point here and more so because of their bully tactics and lack of customer service.
In addition to this It seems that there is no legal way to challenge anything they choose to charge and that just cannot be right or fair!
PLEASE can someone help?
By the way I did go down the route of quoting a certain case where the judge stated that a fair and reasonable cost would be x,y,z. They chose to ignore that.
Time is short and costs are spiraling – please can we do something about these faceless, remorseless morons!? It literally makes me sick to my stomach.
