Quiet enjoyment – what does it mean?Make Text Bigger
I am a landlord myself, but a friend of mine who is a tenant is at her wits end. She’s been in a ground floor conversion flat for nearly 2 years with a tenancy that ends in February with no break clause.
She and her husband are disturbed night after night by the tenants upstairs and are getting very little sleep. Maybe just an hour or so consecutively! The neighbours are young students so there is always someone in and making a noise. A lot of the noise is caused by poor insulation. My friend can no longer stand it and just wants to end the tenancy.
What does ‘quiet enjoyment’ actually mean?
- Is it not being disturbed by the landlord
- Does it spread wider to something that the landlord has no control over.
They are very placid people and not in the slightest bit difficult. I’ve had a trawl through past discussions but can’t find anything that fits this one. I’ve never had this issue and generally if a tenant of mine wants to leave I just let them go.
