Verbal Agreement With Landlord


    Someone can give advice. My mother, 72, has lived at home for almost 20 years. The last 10 years were with the same owner. She received a letter yesterday from a lawyer saying that the landlord had said that 14 December 2017 will be his 10th birthday as a landlord and that the rent will increase from £350 a month to £600 a month. She does not have a lease. All advice is welcome. She is furious. The only way to “get out” my friend or another tenant from a rental agreement during the term of the rental agreement is if the landlord has reasons to evacuate (for example.B. rent arrears), in which case the tenant must be notified of a notice under section 8. You have in hand a signed lease. and the former owner has no legal connection to the property. it doesn`t matter whether or not they had an oral agreement… They died when the property was sold.

    Even though I took the time to contact the first ones and they said “yes, I told them that”, I don`t care… They don`t have any more.. You are not my boss to run MY property. After about a month or two, my dog was chased away on the grounds that he had vomited on the mat. At the time this accident happened, I informed my landlord/roommate (since he was both) of what had happened, and I had left and bought cleaning products and cleaned the carpet myself and took pictures that showed no visible alteration after the shampoo dried. In my friend`s case, you can`t just tell her to leave with a 4-day deadline in the middle of the agreed fixed period just because there is no written lease. However, it is a bit difficult to prove when is the agreed end date of the lease. In any case, the tenant is entitled to at least 2 months` notice (i.e. a legal right) for the duration of the notice period, which must be served with notice under Article 21. I just wanted to have an outside perspective on my family`s situation and how the owner sells the house after making an oral deal with my grandmother, who rented us this place for 28 years, with my recently deceased grandfather. He explained that he would give her a price and give her the first chance to buy the property before marketing it, bringing in lawyers who know all the legal stuff that seemed like a good idea in the face of this global epidemic.

    We don`t even know a week later that he calls my grandmother (79 years old) and tells her that they are bringing a real estate woman to walk around the premises. That is what we have done. Less than a week later, they call my grandmother and tell her that she is not asking her to come to bring potential buyers, see our place and take a tour. We were never offered the opportunity for a virtual tour. Given this outbreak, everyone would probably want the same thing. Anyway, now she appears without announcing herself and throws the court because she has the permission of the lord of the countryside to show the rear unit in which no one has lived for more than 5 years, which is certainly not worth living and which looks like the roof was collapsing every second. Not to mention the mold problems that were submitted to the owner, and my father and I offered to do all the work for a considerable amount less than any company would do if they supplied the materials. Well, it`s now that my grandmother is desperate and anxious, not to mention the worry of this whole ordeal. Which overwhelms my father and me. Anyway, I am looking for all positive feedback and opinions also all resources and help any friendly person is ready to give our family….
