    end of tenency contract possible problem

    I have a certain company which I took out a finder a tenant contract with and they did find one.
    the year is soon up and they will be wanting to charge both the tenant and myself £120 to renew.
    I want to take on the contracts myself and have produced a profession contract for my tenants to sign .
    I have been told that I may have a problem with the company as I have a contract with them but I cant find anywhere in their contract about the cancellation at the end of the year
    sorry if its all over the place ,but I don't want them chasing me for breech of their contract by signing up their tenant they found for me
    is there a problem with me asking the tenant who wants to stay to sign my contract and not their renewal

    Perhaps getting tenants to sign a tenancy surrender on the last day of tenancy, then signing them up from scratch again on yours. It all depends on what terms and conditions are set out in your agreement with the company.

    Or let it run into a periodic tenancy, that way there is no renewal at all.


      There's no need for a renewal at all.

      Letting agents make their living from the fees that they charge, and it would be very unusual for them to allow a landlord to take over the management of an existing tenancy without some kind of charge being due.
      Some contracts don't allow it at all.

      These terms are subject to challenge, as they are often unfair, but I would imagine they would exist in pretty much all agent's agreements.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Hi, all, my tenant left the property and handed the keys in on Dec 6th, that is when I normally get my rent from the agent or a few days after. As no such payment was forthcoming I went to the office after approx a week to see and was told they had been in and taken pictures of the poor condition of...

      • New agent not paying landlord
        by Cpark
        Folks I wonder if anyone can help me here, I have had the worst few years with my properties, the previous agents filled my properties up with delinquents and refused to pay the full sum, we lost 8 months of declining rents. Then was introduced to a new set of agents who really were impressive and opted...

        I am a non resident landlord. My letting agent has stated they are required to have 5 or more NRLs to register with the HMRC. Is this correct? Is there a fee to the letting agent?

        Wanted to post a quick update in case this is useful for anybody else.

        There is no fee for the letting agent to register with HMRC to handle NRLs, all they need to complete the inline form.
        As soon as a letting has registered they need to start collecting tax on behalf of the HMRC....

        Hi jpkeates,

        Many thanks for your reply. What you have suggested make sense to me. I will contact the software supplier for more information then.

        Those are very specific questions about a specific agent and their implementation of a specific software package.
        You'd be better asking the company or the software supplier.

        You'd be better off arranging mail redirects for your post at the properties you don't live at where you are...
