    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) ?

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

    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?

    Hello all, I have phoned the police regarding the room but they are saying it is a civil matter if the tenant occupies the room. They said I could change the locks but they just advised both me and my tenants to phone them if there are any more incidents. My tenants are not going to do this again as...

    I hope I’m ok to ask a question as a tenant here! I have lived in a rented property for almost ten years. It’s rented from a large housing association at market rate rent on an assured shorthold tenancy. Within the rent, we pay a service charge of about £30 a month for maintenance of landscaping,...

    HA's do have to carry out GSC's, although some don't seem to think so and subsequently get into trouble for not doing them:

    Even if they remove the appliances and cap off the pipe they still have to have that inspected....

  • MCOL contested, gone to mediation, no reply from T
    Berlingogirl
    Just a quick question - I made a MCOL, which has gone to meditation due to T's request. If the T does not respond to the mediator to agree the date within the given time does the claim go to an actual court or can I request judgment via MCOL?...

    Hello, this is my first post.

    I am about send a notice to quit to my tenants, they have been there for over 3 years. The tenancy began on the 27th day of the month. My question is, does it have to end on the 27th or can it end on any day of the month, say the 2nd?

    Thanks...

    I have a friend who has rented a property on an assured shorthold tenancy for 3 years now. The tenancy has long expired and so has automatically converted into a periodic tenancy.

    Recently following an inspection the boiler in the property was condemned and switched off as a result. She...

    She seems to have her own ideas of how the law works, else she is trying to convince you that's how the law works.

    You have told her she can't just write that she is putting it up without your friends agreement and your friend doesn't have to leave if she doesn't pay the increase. No need...
