I was wondering if anyone can help with advice.
My mother and i rent in a housing associations property. My mother wants pass on her tenancy on to me. After requesting to the landlord for their consent to assign – and housing officers came round and had us sign the ‘deed of Assignment’ – i would have thought this was the end.
Now they are requesting for me to go to a solicitor to draft up a new deed – and then they will take that document as the deed of assignment. And they recently told me that they will ‘expunge’ the one they carried out?!
What i needed to know –
1. Is there obligatory requirements for to draft a document with the solicitors
2. If so who pays for the cost
3. Can they really ‘expunge’ the deed
4. How can i enforce/make sure they still accept the deed that we signed at our home?
Things at the moment seems one way with the landlord – they haven’t given me a clear explanation as to why a solicitor should draft it and who deals with the cost. How can we get them accept this current deed.
