27 Aug Landlord wants me to find a new tenant?
It’s my last month by contract in the property that I’m in, and I’ve let my landlord know I’ve found somewhere else and won’t be resigning.
He then asked that I be the one to find a replacement tenant for myself, hold viewings and communicate wit them through spare room, etc, as it’s my responsibility. Is this correct given that my year long contract is up?
He’s been useless the entire time I have lived there and we have a broken dishwasher, shower and other appliances that he asks me to fix or get a repair man in for and then deduct from the rent or send him the invoice. He also frequently drops by without warning, as will his mum, and she once made me send my car keys in an Uber so she could check on the flat as hers ‘weren’t working’. My deposit has also never been registered and protected, and I’ve never received an email about it this – nor does he pay income tax on the rental money.
Can I refuse to find someone and get him to do this himself? Thanks!
TL;dr: my landlord is asking me to find a new tenant for the property now that my contract is up and I’m not resigning.
