Hi in April 16 we renewed our assured tenancy for 12 months. in may I went back to work after maternity leave on different hours which means the property no longer works for us dure to location. I messaged my landlord today to explain and ask that they release me to move in one months time but said I would leave the bond with them by way of compensation. my landlord is on holiday til 1st August and has moved to a different address than on the contract. what o hadn’t realised was that altho we signed this April, the gas safety cert had expired in sept 2015 ……if a property can’t be let without one is the agreement signed six months after the expiry valid as legally the property shouldn’t have been let. also we have not received detail as to where the bond paid in Sept 14 was placed.
