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)
I move into my room on the 9th Sept but my landlady is trying to charge from 1st? Watch

Your old contract will have lapsed.
She can charge you from the 1st if you agree from the 1st. If you disagree then she can say you have no agreement.
What you really need to do is to talk to her and agree when the contract starts and ends, Then you know where you stand. If you want it to start on the 9th tell her so and she can either refuse to let to you or decide to increase your rent by 8/365 to make up for it. She decides the terms and you can either negotiate, refuse or look elsewehere.
