Holding Deposit issue over slow broadband

So - they came back with an offer of 340. I was looking to get at around 380 back, calculating first week's rent losses + admin fees etc so I took this offer, finding it more reasonable than 130 (as reasonable can be expected with tenancy/admin fees in this country).

It'll help me cut down my losses and fill in the remaining cash from elsewhere. I wouldn't have gotten this far without all your help, so thank you for that, truly :)... Read More

Holding Deposit issue over slow broadband

Hello everyone.

So far they responded with offering me 130 pounds (inventory fee), quoting how I signed the 'non refundable in change of mind case).

Thanks to the advise you've all given me, I replied that this is a case of poorly informed/misadvertised property instead, not a change of mind case.

I've linked several pieces of English law as well as the site where they advertised their property and ask for 6 days of rent + the inventory fees instead.

Let's see how this goes 🙂 . That offer feels like they're trying to easily get rid of me. I feel sad because the agency people I am interacting with don't even stop to consider for a moment how they would feel if they were in my shoes - which, IMO, is what every business person should strive to do. See a situation through a customer's eyes.

Still, thank you all very much. If anything, at least I got a small but initial offer, all thanks to you :)... Read More

Thank you Mike and everyone.

I have made full notes of what you recommend and will proceed like this if they do not contact me by EOD Monday.

I will let you know how it went from there.... Read More

Thank you both for this.
The thing is - I electronically signed payment of the money through my gmail. Of course, the link was sent by them and was done on the day.
Payment was taken over the phone by then. I am not sure this justifies being on their premises, does it?
Still, yes. I'll go down the small claims court if they don't respond within a couple of days.
I can't express how much I appreciate your help.... Read More
