I have rent an unfurnished property six months ago for a one-year period (fixed first six months and then three months notice period). Just after six months, I received a mail asking me either to vacate the property for the two months of summer (I can let my stuff inside if I want) or to vacate permanently in three months. As I don’t want the first solution (I am not gonna to live in a hotel during two months and let the landlords live with all my stuff), I will have to live. I am aware that there is nothing to do about that. It is legal.
However when I rent the flat, I told the letting agency that I want a long-term rental (several years) as I have a lot of furnitures and it is costly to move. Also I asked to take some measurement of the flat to make some furnitures specially fitting there (due to the special configuration of the flat). I am about sure that the landlord is doing that every year (asking to come back for the summer) which the letting agency is definitively aware of. I am confirming with previous tenants as I got their contact. Is there any way to sue the letting agency to ask reimbursement of both new furnitures I needed to buy and the cost of a moving company. I don’t think it is fair that they hide the fact that the landlord ask every year for 2 months in the flat when I expressely asked for a long term rental. They also told me that the 1 year month (+ 6months fixed) is the standard in UK. I just moved in the country last July. I still have proof of all the communication by mail with the letting agency.
Thanks for your help.
