I shared a flat with a friend (tenant) as she recently signed a 2-year contract and my name is included as a permitted occupier. However, due to circumstances, I decided to leave with the Tenant's consent. The Tenant and I had an internal agreement that she will return the deposit and agent fee to me and we both signed a handwritten document. Now, I asked her for the deposit and agent fee but she said she will no longer return anything to me as I breached the contract. As a permitted occupier, what rights do I have? Did I really breach the contract to the Landlord? Is a permitted occupier bound to the Tenancy Agreement between the Tenant and the Landlord?
Appreciate your replies. Tks!
