    Tenant Application form - filling PDF forms

    I designed my own tenant application in Microsoft Word. I converted it PDF. I email this to tenants. They generally print this off and hand-write and then sign it.

    Technology as moved on PDF technology. My PDF does not have the ability to 'fill in the form'. Is there a way of making of making my PDF form fillable? So they type in their name, address on the form, but only need to print off before signing?

    This is an IT question, but hopefully someone has done this before?

    PDF forms are quite an old feature.

    I don't know what Microsoft Word can do, but LibreOffice can create PDF forms. I did, however, have problems with its font handling, as it doesn't seem to embed the fonts needed for the form fields. It might be OK if both the creator and filler are using Windows, or if you specify standard Postscript fonts.

    Given how long they have been available, it is surprising how many forms have to be printed and over- typed, rather than filled in then printed.

    • Can I rent out my leasehold flat?

      I am having lots of problems in extending a lease on my flat at the moment (66 years left) so thinking of renting it out for a year while I go through the section 42/tribunal route but not sure if I am allowed.

      I am going to to put some of the wording I have found within...

      Very bizarre question here.
      I normally withhold my mobile number - especially when calling estate agents as I don't want them constantly then hounding me.
      That was exactly the case when I rang one estate agent recently - the one that we all love to hate!
      Yet, the receptionist said...

      A receptionist would not know the sound of my voice nor would they have any 'normal' way of knowing who I am. My mobile contract allows me to withhold my number. Their system clearly has had something done to it!! Interesting?

      Clause (3) is confusing, as seems to be a covenant by the lessor in a part of the lease defining a lessee's covenant.

      Providing the rent is high enough (which it will be unless the rest of the lease is weird), you can sub-let to a single family, for the next 59 years. After that, you...

      Would I be charged a fee if I cancel a letting agent contract before they find me a tennant, For viewings and advertising the property?

      The contract was signed online and states I have 14 days to cancel.

      It depends what the terms of the contract are.
      If they've done some work for you, they're likely to want to be paid something.

      I rent out two properties and use the same agent for both. I started renting property A in 2010 and am on the third set of tenants. The current tenants have been in there for five years. Property B has only had one set of tenants who have been in for four years. The tenants in property B were due to...

      I had looked at the contract again and came to the same conclusion. I don't think it would cover property B but that doesn't really matter now.

      Part 4 of the termination clause seems to say that even if I cancel, I still have to pay if the tenant stays in the property.

      As a general principle, an agent is not allowed to make money from their principle's assets or property.
      The interest or commission would automatically be the principles.
      Whether or not it's a pain doesn't change that (the sensible thing to do would be to keep the money in a non-interest...
