Send an official letter to landlord with registered mail indicating on terms and conditions of tenancy agreement which both signed (made a copied).
Highlighting the landlord breached the contact and seek her compensation with facts and reasons.
under conclusion/last paragraph.. tell her to respond before you proceed to tribunal court to file law suit mentioning that you are kind to have a mutual settlement.
Tribunal court will not involve in details but they handled claim refund. May be it works
Remark: it happened I saw your chat which I am not active reader in such chat.. Good Luck
I came home yesterday after a long day of work and discovered that my common room is not there anymore and she (the landlord) did not tell me that before.
I live together with another tenant in a newly renovated flat for 20 days now.
A few days after I moved in on the 1st September she told me to leave the flat at the first of October without telling me any reason. We had a clause in the contract to allow either party to give 30 days notice to the other to terminate the contract. Since I did not misbehave in any way during that short time I just assumed she had other plans with the flat.
Now I see what she was planning and she was just tearing down some walls in the flat including the walls of my room. She just put my bed in the middle of a big empty area where I am sleeping now without any privacy and still she did not contact me in any way.
There were 3 things during the rental time which bothered me:
1) During the first day my room was not finished renovating so I had to stay in another room for 2 nights.
2) She let other people into the house to show them rooms without telling me even though the contract clearly states that she has to.
3) Now I don't have a room anymore.
I am not sure what to do now. I thought about leaving the flat immediately today and claiming the entire rent back for the month via a whatsapp message, which was our prefered way to communicate. Do you think there is a chance I could get some of the rent back I paid for the first month?
Also I heard about the Small Claims Tribunal but read here that it is not dealing with those matters, is that true?
What about going to court with this matter in general? She is one of the worst persons I met in my life and it bothers me that she could just get away with that/
Thanks for your advice and help
