    E Signiture AST

    I have a tenant that wants to move in, they are coming from abroad
    I've face timed them and checked their documents and they look good
    I'm thinking of using an online e signiture type AST to get them signed up
    1. Is this a good idea?
    2. Which website would you recommend for this?

    Many thanks
    Victoria

    I would poss interview them F2F(+ refs) before signing any Contract.
    Your risk!

      Theres no need to sign until move-in day so take a holding deposit if you wish and just get eveything ready. In any case signing a contract and giving someone a tenancy without physically checking their right to rent documents is a risk as you wouldnt have a 'statutory excuse' if anything went wrong.

        Only problem is sometimes they can't get into the country unless they have proof of where they're going to stay.

          Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

          Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

          Sarah's right of...

          Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

          I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

          There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
          That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

          About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

          I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

          I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

          There...

          No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
