    Prescribed information rules

    Hi,

    I wondered if anyone could help with this query?

    I am evicting my tenant. I gave him prescribed information, how to rent leaflet, EPC, gas safety, tenancy deposit certificate, at the start of his first 6 month AST.

    When we renewed his (the exact same tenant) first AST with a new 12 month AST, following on exact date of expiry from 1st AST, I did not re issue any information other than carry out an up to date gas safety.

    Is this correct? Or should I have re issued How to rent, EPC, and deposit certificate.

    When did the tenancy start and when did any other agreements actually start?

    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      26th September 2018 - 25th March 2019.
      Then 26th March 2019 - 25th March 2020.

        In which case, you should be fine.
        There's no need to reissue PI unless something has changed (like where the deposit is held or insured).

        There's the possibility that a landlord has to issue the EPC for each tenancy, because the wording is a bit vague.
        But it looks to me as if it's treated like a gas safety certificate to me, so you'd have to issue any new EPC, but there doesn't seem any point in giving the tenant the same document that they already have.

        And I've not encountered anyone having any issue with an EPC.

            by amy131
            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.

            by 2Toasty
            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...

            Thanks for all the responses so far. Appreciated. So the tenant who is currently living at the property has asked me that she wants a new ast in sole name as she is no longer with partner.

            Do i tell her that i need a written letter from her partner who is no longer at the property? Once...

            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...
