The contract starts on June 15, 2012. The original contract date was June 10 but it was changed from the draft contract. Fine.
Now the tenant sends me a letter saying that
- because she didn't receive the key, clearance of the bills and pictures from the agent,
- because she told me to give her 15 days allowance for cleaning, fixing, arranging things (which is not true because i have never met her, only the agent and her representative)
she is sorry to say that she will charge me 2000 perday penalty for not "giving me the things that we talked about, starting today".
I already cleared the cheque of one year in advance and one month deposit (second month deposit was supposed to be given when bills were shown cleared), and the money is already in a term deposit acount.
Note that the agent is not mentioned in the contract, and she is the one who handed me the letter from the tenant.
The contract says that for any pretermination, the tenant will lose all their deposits and advanced payments.
What is your advise attorney?
