  1. Hi I've lived in this flat since January and have never even met the landlord let alone live with him though he is claiming I'm a lodger so he can evict me with shorter notice dodging the covid 19 legislation. What can I do. The contract is called a lodgers agreement but he doesn't love in the building I live in Bristol he lives in London. Help
  2. Hi, My tenants are coming to the end of their 6 month contract in my house and stated that they would like to sign a new 12 month contract or anktger 6 month contract, rather than remaining on a rolling/month to month agreement. They have reported to the estate agents that they are very settled and would like the security of a longer contract. What are the advantages and disadvantages, from my point of view, in offering them a fixed term contract rather than keeping them on a rolling contract? I have no plans to replace them, nor have I plans to up their rent in the next 12 months but, from my understanding, if problems arise (not paying rent) it will be easier for me to evict them in a monthly contract. Surely there are fees involved in writing up a contract? If security is the only thing the require maybe I could just reassure the Tennant's of my plans of no change? Thanks in advance Paul
  3. Hi all. Can anyone please give some examples of what should be included in an AST tenancy agreement? Many Thanks! Charlie
  4. Hello, I am just about to let out my first BTL property and the letting agent contact me to say they were just getting the tenancy agreement ready and asked if I had any special terms and conditions that I would like added. Can anyone give me any ideas of things that might be wise to add? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Matt
  5. Hello, I currently have some tenants who are on a short assured tenancy agreement that has been on a rolling month to month agreement for at least six months, if not a year. I heard about the PRT's that are being introduced and had thought about trying to move my tenants on to it as I missed a few vital documents when the original tenancy was set up. I thought that if I started the new PRT I could issue those documents when this contract begins. Does anyone have any thoughts on this and what information do I need to give the tenants in advance of issuing the PRT? I phoned the Scottish Government - Housing and Social Justice help line but the guy wasnt much help he said just to issue the documents now and leave them on the current rolling contract but I am worried as the TIP mentions it should be issued before they sign their tenant agreement and I don't know if that might come back to bite me. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks
  6. Hi there, I read something recently that suggested you don't need to renew an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement when the period expires. I have always renewed the AST for three reasons. Firstly, it gives me the reassurance the tenant is staying for another 12 months, secondly I didn't think the various legal clauses would be valid once the tenancy agreement expired. So for example, clauses around how to upkeep the house would be invalid? Thirdly, doesn't this give the tenant reassurance their deposit has been secured for a further period? If this is not the case I would love to know...this would save me several hundred pounds a year! Many thanks in advance. Wes
  7. Hi all, Need to pick a brain or 2 if I may? We rented a property on a joint tenancy agreement on 1st August to 2 unrelated tenants, one of which moved in on the 1st August and the other on the 1st September. I have had an email from the tenant who moved in more recently saying it has not worked out and they would like to move out. I have replaced the actual name of the tenant with 'John Smith' for privacy and copied in some of the email below. 'Unfortunately, things have not worked out sharing the house with John Smith Since moving in on 1 September I have only managed to stay in the house for roughly 7 or 8 nights. Within the last week he has asked me to move out twice. Moreover, he has some pretty severe anger issues which have resulted in me not feeling comfortable in the house. Therefore, I am hoping to move out by 1 October John Smith and I have spoken and he will be taking on the lease solely. I hope this is not a problem, as the property was originally let to John Smith as sole occupier before he suggested to me that I move in as well. As I was paying rent and bill money direct to John Smith, there should be no change in the monthly transfer to you for rent. Would it be possible to have my name removed from the lease? I am happy to pay for any administration fee that may be incurred by the work involved in doing this. Also, once I have a move-out date formalised, would it be possible for me to arrange to hand my keys back directly to you? Although John Smith and I have a working arrangement and will keep things amicable as I move out, I would like to make it formal that I have left the property' I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on the best way to resolve this for everyone concerned? - Would I need to draw up a new single tenancy, if so does this automatically make the old agreement null and void, what happens to the signed inventory, deposit protection we have set up etc etc? - Can we just get everyone involved to sign a letter stating this will be treated as a single tenancy from 1st October and detailing who will be responsible for what? - Is there another preferable way to do this? Any help from anyone on the best way forward on this would be much appreciated. Really keen not fall short of a legal obligation or be left without any rights somewhere further down the line?? Thanks in advance Regards Mark
