Re: HELP - Getting kicked out of our sublet apartment - rights?

Hi All,

Many thanks for your quick responses.

We arranged the sublet from Italy before arriving, and we did ask the tenants if they had agreement to sublet the apartment; they said they did, but evidently either they were lying or the estate-agent is acting unscrupulously. (I can ask for evidence of the agreement, but I suspect it was simply verbal)

Now I'm pretty sure we're out of luck here. The person we are subletting from has offered to give us back money for the period we are not going to be staying, and I think this is probably about as much as we can expect without it turning into some sort of legal battle which would be expensive and time consuming.

I guess this is just one of those situations you have to deal with and get on with your life.

Cheers
