Tenants claiming for noise from upstairs

Reply to the comment left by "Mike Amapola" at "15/05/2015 - 14:58":

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.

The short hold tenancy agreement was for 18months and I released them at 6 months. They wanted to move sooner giving notice within 3 months of living at the property and telling me about the noise issues but I kept them in the property as, by law, they had to be in the property for minimum 6 months before release (minumum SHT). I have since released their deposit (no deductions) and only once they received this back have they written to me to tell me they are taking action. They were in-fact great tenants up until this point.

They have written to me and said that they have sought legal advice and have requested a 20% refund on all rental payments made for the full duration of their tenancy - about £1,700 total over the 6 months! As the property was not fit to live in and the noise affected their daily activities i.e performance at work etc.

Regarding the cupboard, this wasnt in the contract but there are emails that they can evidence.
I feel that they have legs to request the money for the cupboard and this amounts to circa. £75 as I added £25 to the monthly rental to have this included. I probably will refund them on this but the other request is crazy and quite frankly I cant afford this!... Read More

Thanks Mark,

I have looked at the forums and there is nothing covered about this. Its the other way around... the tenants are looking to make a claim against me (Landlord) as they are saying the property was not suitable to live in? As I own both the ustairs and downstairs flats I would be liable. Obviously best to seek legal advice on this one but if there is anyone who has experience with this it could save me quite a bit of time and money!... Read More
