Hi i am currently living in a shared flat and have been there for three years. I have been a 29 year old student with a maintainance allowance during term time my contract with the landlady is coming to an end on the 3rd of september and i am all paid up? i would like to continue my occupancy there however the landlady is saying she wont allow me to without a rent guarantor? My mum was my guanantor up to september but wont be agter the contract ends as it is a massive commitment to her? where do i stand? landlady is also saying that i will be held soley responsible for the full council tax for the flats even though she will be filling it up with students in september?
