Money Matters: Who Should Pay the Termination Fee? 💰🤔

Our homeowner heroine thought she was doing her boyfriend a favor by inviting him to move in, but now he's demanding she pay half of his £600 termination fee! 😤 She's covering the cost of her property, so she believes he should cover the cost of his. He argues that she's the reason he's leaving his tenancy early, so she should be responsible for half the fee. She even offered to let him stay at his place until his tenancy ends, but he got angrier, accusing her of not wanting an equal partnership. 💔 With both of them having enough savings to cover the fee, is she in the wrong for refusing to pay? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿

NTA, cancel offer, don't let him move in. He's feeling entitled 😠
