Hi, I’m a Landlord of 25 plus years. Registered under the Wales / Cymru scheme.
However, I’m here as a Dad of a full-time student. His property was not fully ready at the commencement of the contract, but no one was in a rush to move in a month ahead, although two others on the joint tenancy did so. His bed was broken and other fixtures. We’ve worked with the agent effectively to get broken things mended and to be fair they have responded well to my communications.
Basic point, he paid rent for six weeks, didn’t occupy the property and the property was not fully compliant with HMO and insurance legislation. Surely he should get his money back, or most of it. i.e. the lost month’s rent?
Small claims court?
It’s £450 for goodness sake. As landlord’s thinking of your own kind in rented accommodation. What would you recommend the course of action should be?
