    Can I get Landlord to Pay Fees?

    Can I get Landlord to Pay Fees? 4th Dec 17 at 7:42 PM
    Good Evening All,

    I would really appreciate some advice.

    I am looking at moving out of my current rental, I have found somewhere else that suits, paid the fees (£360!) and informed my landlord straight away. This all happened last Wednesday 29.11.17.

    I have been a good tenant, I have looked after the property, spent money on it, am always early with my rent and am accommodating with repairs, of which there have been many.

    To make a long story short, the landlord does not want to let me go. He has spent every day since last Wednesday texting me to reconsider and saying that I have misunderstood the situation(?).

    He will not respond to requests for a reference and passing the credit check is contingent upon this. I will lose the £360 I have paid because of this. Can I sue my landlord for £360 that I will lose?

    I think I know the answer to this, but it's worth a try!

    Many thanks

    Yes, it's registered with "My Deposits" but it was registered late.

    How much is the deposit? The penalty could easily cover the £360 you lose in fees.

    Does he 'retrieve' your post because he's picking up post for himself at the same time? Does he have consent to let?

    No, he lives over two hours away and does not receive post to the property. He just uses it as an excuse to pitch up at my door.

    I think that he just thinks he's being friendly and this is normal, but I do find it unsettling. That's why I eager to move on.

    £685 and I was thinking that too. Not sure how to go about it. I think I may have a problem retrieving my deposit too since he seems to want to make this as painful as possible.
    I will do some research.
