    Tenant name change - AST nerds to be resigned?

    Hi all,

    One of my tenants' surname has changed. Does the AST have to be resigned in this case with the new name?

    I'm not sure of the reason behind the name change, but I don't think this matters in this case.

    Many thanks,


    No, there's no need to do anything.
    Legally a name is something you're known by, so people can have more than one name if they want.

    If you are renewing the agreement anyway, you may want to refer to the person by their new name and refer to the previous name.
    John Smith (also known as John Jones).
    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).


      Fantastic, thank you very much jpkeates!
