    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?

      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.

            I think there'll be a dip in property prices post event.
            There'll be a lot of dead, grieving and damaged people and lots of businesses and jobs will be gone forever.

            Which will keep landlords in the rental business, because it won't be the best time to sell up.

            The government...

            I've been reading all the chat on this forum and was thinking about what it's going to be like after, will landlords be more weary of self employed tenants, have more uc or pack in all together ? Interesting times and the tenants are going to struggle even more as landlords try to doubley make sure...

            Honestly, you need proper legal advice.
            This is a huge mess and it's getting worse with everything you do.

            Legal advice only seems expensive when you compare it with nothing.
            When you compare it with the costs of getting this wrong, it'd cheap.

            If the person is...

            Hi

            I have rented my mother’s house out to 2 x lodgers on my mother’s behalf as she has been hospitalised due to mental medical condition. A lodger agreement was given to them as she was expected to return back in few weeks’ time. However situation had changed and she had to live out...

            Thanks for replies. The only reason I am serious over this matter is because apart of CVD19 outbreak I might be accused of causing this mess despite I don't smoke. But there is a little obstacle in actually ascertaining as who is the real culprit because upward there are two more flats (1st & 2nd...

            After some thought I am considering including a one time offer with my letter and statement. I know that the tenant could potentially move into her dad's house. With the arrears statement I am thinking to make an offer " without prejudice " that if tenant vacates the property within 14 days...

            Had a long message from tenant who is supposed to leave this week.
            obviously has realised time is running out and hasn't found anywhere else.
            Advised her to take s21 to council and ask them.
            Basically is asking to stay another 2 weeks.
            if I proceed with court order I have to...

            I will ask for others opinions because I am not an expert on resident landlords / lodgers, but I don't believe any of them could have been lodgers if there were 3 of them occupying all 3 bedrooms - ie, no where for a resident landlord to reside. And if they were't lodgers, they were tenants. As your...
