Hi, I am currently have a dispute with my (to be) landlord. Basically the story is this. Me and my landlord HAS SIGNED a one year contract with a 6-month break clause to rent a property from the 12th Feb to the 11th Feb of next year. I paid 6 months rent in advance (because I have no UK gaurantor and I am not a UK citizen) on the 9th Feb which is £9450. Then on the 11th the agent called and told me that there has been a mistake, the current tenant at the property has paid the rent up til the 23rd Feb and therefore he will not move out before then. Which means I can't move in on the 12th as agreed in the contract. Now the problem is that I can only stay at my current place until the 20th, and have to find place to stay until 23rd. I asked my current landlord if I can extend, he said yes with additional rent of £165. Do you think this extra rent is the new landlord's responsibility or mine? Also has she broken the law of the contract since both of us signed accordingly.
