I find myself in a confusing situation (as a tenant) and am trying to work out where I stand:
The original contract was 10 months long, in a shared house with 5 others, we each had a Guarantor.
The contract ended, 3 Tenants vacated and 3 stayed on under a periodic tenancy.
After a few months 2 new Tenants where bought in and we signed a new contract, no Guarantor forms where signed this time around, but names where Given. (This contract was drawn up without the Agency, and I am not sure if the old Tenancy was ever officaly ended?)
The landlord asked for deposits from everyone and apparently transferred my old deposit to the new Tenancy.
I have now found out my deposit still sits in the original scheme, what should I do about this?
My main concern is a new Tenant has trashed the house, and then moved out, as no inventory was carried out at the end of the previous Tenancy or at the start of the new Tenancy would I be held liable?
Also is my Guarantor still liable? Having never agreed to, signed or seen this new Tenancy?
