Hi, My girlfriend is having trouble with her current landlord. He is not registered as a landlord and therefore no lease is signed. He asked one of them to move out 3 weeks ago because he needed somewhere to stay but both her and her housemate decided to move out because they are not too keen on living with him. He had been paying them rent relief himself but is now refusing to pay it for the last 10 months (he last paid in November 2007 for the previous year). She has found a place now also and is moving out a week earlier than she is paid up until. He won't give her this last week rent back though even though he forced one of them to move out. He initially told the other girl that he would give her the money back if she moved out early but is now claiming she misunderstood him. I think my girlfriend should tell him that she is going to seek advice from Revenue and the PTRB unless he pays both the rent relief and give her the last weeks rent back. Is this the right avenue to go down?
