I am having problems with a tenant that has Dyslexia. His mother is rather protective and wishes she be there to watch the signing but I’m getting nowhere despite several attempts of trying to contact her to arrange a signing!
Excuses such as a new job and a grievance in the family are used. The latest one is being on holiday so can not see me yet.
I returned home after passing on my property to a relative as an agent to look after and to let out. I was unhappy with the situation as soon as i returned. My relative was not happy and withheld the newly signed tenancy agreement which I know is not valid as I have taken back over my flat. I then had problems contacting the tenant that had been living there for six months.
I started to write letters and he finally got in touch. I arranged to see him but all his finances are taken care by his mother. I went to see his mother to ask for the tenancy agreement which she took a picture of for me but refused to let me take away. Now I have a blurry picture which shows his tenancy agreement but not the terms an conditions.
I need to see him to arrange for him to pay debt that was ran up whilst I was away and have just put a new tenancy agreement together that I wish for them to sign with her as the guarantor.
Legally I do not know what I can do.
Please could you advice as I am lost!
