    I think I would insist that the tenant takes possession and the tenancy therefore begins before letting the nephew in. Otherwise I am not sure where you would stand if the tenant changes his mind after the nephew is in residence. You would have to try to prove that the tenancy had begun and this could be costly and have an uncertain outcome.

    If there is gas, ensure you have evidence that tenant has received copy of GSC before tenancy starts.

    Email him the paperwork and ask him to sign them?

    Send the tenant a copy of the tenancy agreement, ask them to print it out, sign it, scan it and email it back (and put the original in the post).
    When the document is received along with the first month's rent and deposit, allow the nephew to enter the property.

    Well everything seems to check out ok SO far, refs, finances. However, I am now thinking this is too much hassle, but it is just their personal circumstance I think. You won't always get the perfect situation. I am finding it particularly difficult finding a straight forward case this time.:-&

    If the "lead tenant" is the only person named on the tenancy, they are actually the tenant.
    Which means that anyone else is, essentially, a complete stranger who will be a guest of the tenant.

    Ignoring the backstory, why would you want them in the property?

    No such thing as a 'lead Tenant'. Get first Tenant to sign before he occupies.

    Not currently in UK to sign tenancy

    I have new tenants lined up for rental of property. However the lead tenant's nephew will also be living there but lead, who will be sole named on the tenancy, will be out of the country until after the tenancy starts. The nephew will be moving in prior his return with lead tenants permission.

    How do I do setup the paperwork when not here to sign in person? What else to i need to watch out for

    Again, thanks in advance

    Btw, shortened backstory is lead tenant away because of work but he and nephew has to move out of current accommodation whilst he is away.

    I moved into rented accommodation after returning to full time study and currently rent out all bedrooms in a house I own that had been my main residence. I have a residential mortgage with a consent to let. The tenants have ASTs which have gone past the fixed terms so are all rolling monthly now. One...

    As mentioned above reading between the lines the agent may have contacted after yourself and applied some pressure with threat of eviction on behalf of the landlord. This is maybe the reason for the change of attitude.

    Some RGI companies such as direct line (I believe) are not processing...

    I have an investment property I have been renting out for five years. I use the services of a letting agent who provides a full management service. This includes vetting prospective tenants and providing a rental guarantee and eviction service if the tenants fail to pay the rent. It is expensive as...

    Hi I would check your lodger agreement, even if this was a HMO I don't believe she would be entitled to sleep on the sofa. Personally I would class this as unreasonble unless she is ill and cannot climb the stairs but you mention it's a flat.

    Getting the other documents sent to your partners...

    A lodger moved in to a spare room 2 months ago. I was going to be there 3/4 times a week. I live elsewhere. We share utility bills equally. What she didn't mention at the interview was that she is very asthmatic, convalescing from an op, and prone to chest infections. Aged 66, she is now on the very...

    Hi Stew Thanks for taking the time to answer, and all the other replies.

    Yes it is my own place. Council tax paid by me, and all utilities in my name. Other statements go to my partner's place. She is not registered at my address with banks or anything else.

    We have a...

  • Changing AST from joint to single
    by rupert206
    Hi all,

    I had a periodic AST with my tenants in a joint name. Recently the tenant has split up with her partner and has requested a new tenancy agreement to be drawn up in a single name.

    Is this necessary or can the existing periodic agreement continue?

    If it is...

    Hi 2Toasty

    So I noticed in your first post you wrote "I was going to be there 3/4 times a week", is this your own house that you bought and previously lived in full time and is the other place you stay a partners house and you have not legal ownership over it? - If this is the...
