Andy they have already told you it is not the so called landlords property ! The Housing association however will do this by the book to evict you !

However girls just push it to the legal limit & leave within the time period specified by the courts as you will get a record & will have serious problems finding accomadation in thr future !

Andy didnt you get anything wrong when you was in your early 20's!

I meant excactly what you said, and by going through the proper process with a bit of luck it may last a few months so they will not have lost anything so they can then rent somewhere else off a proper landlord. (Not the clown they are currently with).

But I didnt mean to be harsh girls, as I should really stop posting after I have had a good drink, as It makes me say all the wrong things!!

I guess the point is that the man who conned them isn't a landlord - the landlord appears to be the housing association, who have done nothing wrong.

Thanks everyone for your contribution and advice, I completely understand everything you guys are saying but to be honest, I just want to leave the property, i called the people incharge of the property and apparently, the rent hasn't been paid for a very long time now, they tried contacting him too but still no response. The lady said is best i move out. I am so tired of stressing and thinking, i have migrane every day because of too much stress, I can't go to sleep anymore, i tried but i just can't. I just want to move out then my heart and mind will finally be at peace, Please if there anyone on here who's got a small studio or apartment to rent for reasonable amount?? We promise to pay the rent at the end of every month, on time too. Please help

I and girlfriend will be travelling to somerset to see her parents, I don't want to come back and can't get in or our stuffs is outside, this is why we really want to place to secure our stuff, i was told when the people come to evict you, it doesn't matter who is in the property and stuffs in the peoperty, everything will be thrown outside, please help Thanks again guys for the advice and comment, wish you all Merry Xmas and Happy New year :-) as for (US) I don't know what the new year is got in store for us

Hi Lewis, really sorry to hear about your situation. I presume you've contacted Shelter? I found them to be really useful when I had a problem with a former landlady. I know how stressful that stuff can be, but yours sounds like an extreme case. What is your maximum budget for a place? How much stuff have you got to store?

Regards

Lewis

Cuttin to the chase, if you have paid three months in advance then more fool you, but if I where you, stay in the flat for the time you have paid for and let whoever owns the place evict you, because it takes a fair bit of time to go through the process of evicting someone so enjoy Christmas and stop being so damn considerate / respectful of whoever owns your flat. Presumeably you have signed a rental / short term letting agreement so plead ignorance and stay there until your three months that you have paid for has run out.

Heck just maybe, mug off your dodgy landord and stay there even longer without paying rent and see how it fares, whats the worst that can happen?

Dont worry about being too honest and upstanding in this particular instance!!


The point is it's extremely stressful to be in that situation. I'm sure they have learnt their lesson in dealing with landlords, but it's a horrible situation that they need to get out of nonetheless. I doubt anyone would enjoy Christmas with that hanging over their heads...

Atm @caradeuc we can only afford to pay weekly, 70-100 with bills, tbh we haven't really got much, just clothes, tv, speakers, and the two cats. There's more stuffs like sofa, bed, tv unit, wardrobe etc but we are not going to bother taking them with us. Thanks a million @Gillw for your concerns and effortless, we really do appreciate.

Shelter will give you good free advice http://www.shelter.org.uk/ 0808 800 4444

oops - didn't see there was a second page. There needs to be much better regulation of the private rented sector, to stop people who aren't landlords scamming people and to stop rents becoming unaffordable.

Happy new year, Lewis (and I hope it is)! Glad you've been given a bit longer. Will you take Miss Mop up on her offer of storage space and have you had any luck in getting back the money you're owed?
