My student daughter has been renting a property with two college friends. They have just given notice and the Landlady is furious as my daughter had hoped to stay on, Since receiving notice, her manner has worsened considerably and she has been sending emails with endless demands from repairing an electric hob which she knew was already broken, to professionally cleaning the cellar! Her emails are very long and that don’t make any sense, and are all written in capital letters.
I politely asked if she could please give 24 hours notice of agents coming to view, which she responded to by sending a series of bizarre messages which are unpleasant, bullying and totally unreasonable. She said that we’d had 11 months notice and that according to the contract she didnt have to.
She seems to be saying that having once given notice of the first Agent calling, that it covers any and all other visits from anyone else with or withou her. She is now saying she can and will turn up as she wants up until 8pm.
In the contract it says agents need to be allowed to look round during last 2 months, with 24 hours notice, but she says shes given it ! Two of the girls are studying still and one doing shift work as shes training to be a nurse.
Does anyone know of a document I could give her which legally points out that she can;t now act as though we have not paid rent for the notice period.
She has also accused us of denying her legal right to enter on Friday, because she says she called round when I was cleaning the flat, but i didn’t hear the bell go or anything and i didnt know she was coming!
The Letting agent isnt being much help, as they say they are not managing the flat. I thought it was the same thing, but it isn’t apparently. Additonally the guy said he wont deal with her anymore as she was abusive to him.
Sorry to blurt all this out, but i feel like im going to have a panic attack every time we receive an email. I feel that she is looking for any possible reason to keep the deposit and I am so worried.
