View Full Version : RE: can i sue my landlord

Further to my last posting below, it has suddenly occured to me that because I am claiming HB my father had to sign as a guarantor should I not pay the rent. If I am going to start deducting amounts as stated in my last post can the landlord go after my father as guarantor..?

Yes of course.

But your father would be able to enter exactly the same defence as you acting in your own stead should you deduct rent for the unsatisfactory items and then be sued by the landlord (i.e. the property is in an unsatisfactory state and breaches the law as to safety etc.)
