So the apartment I'm in for the last 2 years was 800 per month,hap covered 700 and I paid 100 top up myself as it was over the limit for my area
I got a new agreement in November gone and the new rent was 700 so I no longer had to fork out 100 per month,great !
But 2 Weeks ago the property agency emailed me saying the new rent was a mistake at 700 pm and it should be 800 please back date arrears of 300 euro and sign new lease,I refused to sign it and she escalated it to the rtb
Today I had a mediation call with an rtb agent and we came up with an agreement that I sign a new lease from march of 800 and all arrears are wiped clean,he says it is in their favour since there was no rent review and I could be made back date if it went to a tribunal or they could argue I'm in arrears and have me out I'm 14 days
Am I right signing it and move on or play hardball and say tough it's a new contract signed sorry? I have a 10 day cooking off period
