Urgent advice needed please. We are tenants of a property that has been served with a repossession order by the court, because our landlord hasn’t been paying his mortgage. Our rent is paid up until the 13th of this month and the possession is ordered to take place on 1st October. We have been excellent tenants for 20 months, paying on time and improving the property at our own expense.
We have doubts that our landlord has protected our £1,500 deposit and are aware that he has a number of charges on the property. We therefore think it unlikely that we would be successful in recovering our deposit via the courts.
Therefore, for us to recoup some of the value of our deposit, would we be in our rights to stay in the property up until the repossession without paying rent and also to remove items to help recover some of our deposit money back.
Many thanks for any help or advice.
