Hi guys, need the advice on the brains trust here, in particular @thatbum and anyone else well versed in legalities of the RTA. Scenario below. -Relative needs to break lease due to purchasing a house, currently running until Feb 2016. Original lease of 2 years signed in Feb 2013 and 1 year extension granted to take up to current. - Notice given in early August about moving out by 10th september or so - Market in this area has dropped significantly (luxury property) and landlord is insisting on asking for existing price from 3 years ago. - repeat offers pay any difference in rent if asking price reduced, landlord has refused - Old photos from 4/5 years ago being used, fully staged for sale etc. Imo not representative of the listing (I believe this contravenes the rules, can anyone confirm?) - signboard only went up last week instead of immediately - fair few inspections but no one interested which tells me it is overpriced and the photos online arent accurate as people dont like the product in the flesh IMO landlord has not mitigated any loss here and is being stubborn, what are the suggestions here? Should we stop paying rent and elect to go to tribunal? Can the landlord refuse to lower rent indefinitely and expect us to keep paying? Does anyone have a lawyer in mind who can help with specific legal advice here?
