Hi All, I am new to this site and not even sure if this is the right forum but I could do with some help and advice if anyone wouldn't mind? My Mum was given notice on her flat back in October and her tenancy is due to end at the end of this week (28th November). The landlord is selling. However the new buyers of the flat would like my Mum to stay on as a tenant. Of course my Mum would like to stay in the property as she has been there for years but the sale of the flat has not gone through yet and the letting agent have not put anything in writing about her staying in the flat and she hasn't had a new tenancy. She has spoken to the letting agents on several occasions who have said everything is still progressing and even if the sale fell through the landlord has said he wouldn't chuck her out. My worry is that as of this weekend she has no legal tenancy so I am assuming her insurance is invalid as well? She has emailed the letting agency today and asked them to put something in writing to her but they keep phoning her telling her it;'s going to be ok? My mum is 65 and doesn't need this stress and is looking to me for advice. I have searched the web but can't seem to get to the right place for info. Any advice on what she could do or where I can go to for advice would be great!
I’ve just agreed to purchase a property with a tenant in situ. Having only previously purchased with vacant possession I’ve been on the hunt for a list of documents/info for my solicitor to request from the vendor. My solicitor is good so would have no doubt picked up on some of these, but I suspect not all. I think this may be a useful resource for others, what with there being a fair few properties being marketed with tenants in situ. Here’s the request list I plan on sending to my solicitor: · Tenancy Agreement (AST) · Right to rent entitlement, status and proof · Deposit protection information (is the deposit protected correctly) · Deposit prescribed information receipt (proof tenant has received) · Government how to rent guide issued (proof tenant has received) · EPC issued (proof tenant has received) · Current gas safe certificate · Proof smoke detectors have been tested · GDPR · Inventory · Legionella risk assessment · List any complaints, requests or maintenance issues raised by the tenant during the tenancy · Proof of good account standing (i.e. Tenant is up to date with rent) · Question whether the tenant has ever been late with rent payment at any point during the tenancy I very much doubt all the items will receive satisfactory responses but at least I’ll know what needs addressing to make things fully compliant. The latter questions should also give piece of mind or ring alarm bells! If there’s anything I’ve missed, or you have an idea that may be useful then please do contribute. Likewise, if you have any experience of this and have a story to share that may be useful/interesting then please do. Thanks Paul
