Does the tenant have a legal contract?
I have the following situation and I am at a loss as to where I stand.
I have a signed contact for a 12 month AST. The tenant though has only give 75% of the deposit and advance rent combined.
He has not taken possesion as he "went away for a few days", and his sister was to go through the check in and obtain the keys.
His "sister" did not turn up to the meeting and 5 days later the agent has still not been able to make contact with anyone.
My opinion is that the tenant has not fulfilled his part of the contract and that this is now void. The agent is concerned about this and is of the opininon that this could lead to problems.
The monies received so far are still being held in the agents clients account and I want these sent back.
