    To be honest I didn't think that, that could happen but you are right I will do it asap. That would be horrendous,
    No, not a route I want to go down at all.

    Thank you

    The letter I've received today.

    "Further to our telephone conversations regarding the property we write to confirm our discussions that, for personal reasons, the landlord is seeking to take back possession of the property so that his family can live there.

    We appreciate that your current assured shorthold tenancy is not due to expire until February 28th 2019, however the landlord has informed us that it will not be renewed after this date.
    We understand that this will cause disruption to you and your family and the landlord sincerely apologises for this and would like to minimise the affect of this as much as possible.
    Consequently, the landlord has instructed us to propose the following amendments to the AST

    1, The AST shall be amended so that it expires 30th November 2018, from now until that date you are free to vacate the property at any time and the rent only charged on a pro-rated basis, upto and including the day you vacate.

    2, On the day you vacate and return the keys to us, the landlord will make a one time ex-gratia payment to you of £800

    3, All other T&C'S of the AST remain unchanged ( the security deposit will be returned in the usual way.

    This offer is only valid for 6 days and expires if you do not accept in this time period. "


    Can I ignore/ should I?

    Well only you can decide!

    Do you want
    a) flexibility to leave at any time without notice (up to Nov 30th) and
    b) £800 cash

    Or do you want to stay undisturbed till Feb 28th?

    Bear in mind that on Nov 30th you can still stay until the LL takes you to court , but in that case you'd forfeit the £800.


    Option 3 (bearing in mind they seem to have accepted your legal argument, AND be desperate) would be to negotiate another, better deal!

    Will do ��

    Should I do anything regarding the fact they won't acknowledge our 12months AST or just wait for Feb to come around?

    There’s a principle in law if you don’t challenge it; it can then be accepted as fact.

    BUT you have challenged it previously.

    We want to be left undisturbed until August but I have a feeling they are going to be constantly on our case until we leave. Which I'm dreading.

    How much would you move for; out of curiosity?

    I really don't know purely because of my circumstances I haven't even thought about it.

    I don't think he would offer more though

    Possibly after Christmas is over and baby here safe just to be from the stress of it all.

    However no idea on ££ and what is fair.

    Personally I’d ask for £2k + deposit returned and surrender at your choice.

    I suspect they’ll accept. Easier to move before baby here
