Hi,
I have a problem. I agreed to let a property to 3 Iraqi nationals on a joint tenancy basis for 10 per week and took a sum of 360 fro them (2 weeks rent in advance and 1 week up front. I then gave them the keys to the property. The next day, they called me and asked to meet. At the meeting they gave me the keys back and said they did not want the property and wanted their money back.
There was no receipt given for the money which was handed to me and there was no tenancy agreement in place as I had arranged for them to sign this shortly after they moved in as they were going to be homeless if I did not give them the keys there and then.
They are now persistently asking for their money back, do i have to give it to them? What is my legal position?
