    Corporate lets and right to rent

    Is it the company's responsibility to check right to rent of anyone who stays?
    Is it necessary to put that obligation in the contract?
    Am I allowed to let to a foreign company (US in this case) ?
    Assume I know nothing.

    Pretty sure you can rent to who you like and as you'd not be landlord of the humans wouldn't be responsible.

    But in your shoes I'd have a conversation with home office on the subject & record it just-in-case.

    Call the landlord’s helpline to get help with a check.

    I would put obligation into contract, albeit don't think it's necessary.

    And if & when this US company decline to pay rent or cause damage, who or what will you sue where & how eventually collect, assuming you get judgment in your favour?

      I wouldn't let to a non-UK company, full stop.
      Corporate lets are complicated enough.
      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).

      • tenancy agreement and co-owner
        progress
        If only one co-owner one can sign the tenancy agreement does this mean that this implies that the other agree to it. And what happens if only one co-owner signs a tenancy agreement and the other does not agree does it make the tenancy agreement invalid and what happens to the tenants who has already...

        So, for the last year and a half we've had a young woman as a model tenant. She's improved the house no end and keeps it immaculate and only rarely raises very minimal and perfectly acceptable maintenance requests. Very pleasant lady all round.

        The other day, our agent told us that she'd...

        I've been doing a tidy up of my old files.
        I have invoice folders for my estate agency from 2010/2011/2012.
        Should i be disposing of everything older than 6 years?
        Should i keep soft copies?
        Regarding ASTs and rent statements, should i be getting rid of everything over 6 years,...

        Keep everything IIWY.

        HMRC can go back as long as they like if they suspect criminality. How will you prove you aren't a criminal if you don't have the papers?

        Don't think you "have to give permission".

        Consider tenant who doesn't pay rent one month. You don't have to give permission for this (or not..), they remain liable to eviction under s8g10. Or one who fails to pay rent 3 months in a row then starts again, but still 3 months...

        In reality, I can't see a s8 notice on that basis alone resulting in repossession, on the basis that a) it's disproportionate to be made homeless for a breach of that nature and b) that courts don't want to make people homeless if they can avoid it.

        The term should probably be "which...

      • DPS Custodial Scheme & Joint Landlords
        StuartH
        Have I missed something, or is it impossible for joint landlords to be recorded in the DPS Custodial Scheme in the way that joint tenants are separately identified? Does anyone think that a problem could arise over deposit protection issues where the record shows the identity of only one of two joint...

        It used to, but not any more (last time I used it was March - custodial scheme - so basing it on that date)....

        The TA says


        So, if he stays there, we have to give written permission or she's technically in breach of the TA. If we give written permission, I assume that opens us up to all sorts of issues if he starts being a nuisance. Am I wrong about that?

        So, we could just tell...
