I move into my room on the September but my landlady is trying to charge from 1st? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, my landlady is trying to charge me rent from the 1st of September when move in on the 9th. I lived in the house this year and I am moving out for the summer too then return for the 9th sept, can she charge me for those 8 days which I am not even in that room for?

    There is nothing about this in my contract (as of September i will not have an up to date contract either because she hasn't given any of the 10 new housemates contracts for this year)

    If it says you came on the 9th on your contract, no she can't. And if she's not offering a new contract, I suggest finding a new place in case an incident like this should occur again.

    it depends on the start date of the contract, it's normal for the start date to be what makes sense to the landlord in student housing not necessarily the date you move in, which often means paying for an extra week or two
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
