Hi I live in Aberystwyth Wales with my partner soon to be moving to Swindon. we couldnt get down to view flats and the like but we found this website and emailed a few landlords and got one for a few weeks we have been conversant and got the contract all signed sent back with a deposit. Now a week before the event we are told that its all off and we are now totally out of a home. We have jobs to transfer to but no where to live can anyone give me advice on what i should do is there any legality that says he cant do this.

Regards

Trigun aka Craig

    i dont know the law exactly i would think if he refunds the deposit you havent got a leg to stand on, its his property he can pretty much do what he likes, if he keeps the deposit i think that will be a different matter.

    i'd suggest trying the CAB but i think that might take too long...

    did you go through a agency or is it a private letting?

    Unless the contract was signed by him then you don't really have any rights, providing he refunds the deposit.
