    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.

            Revisit the repayment plan.

            You know you owe the money, but, right now, can't pay what you thought you could.
            That's fair enough.

            Offer the agent/landlord a revised plan based on your new circumstances....

            Hi Everyone,

            I'm a former tenant of a property and I'm looking for some advice. I rented a property in London for 7 years with my GF and moved out in February of this year. I still owe 2 months rent arrears and this is being paid of in agreed installments through the estate agent. ...

            If tenanted and then sold, the sale does not end the tenancy nor require tenant to leave.

            New owner becomes new landlord, even if outside with removals van and screaming kids. Normal eviction processes apply .

            HI! Apologies if this is a stupid question; I am rather ignorant in terms of a property being offered for sale and for let at the same time.

            I'm a tenant currently looking for a larger rental property and I've noticed a trend in my area in recent times to place a property both for sale...

            You have to look at yourself in the mirror every morning?
            Karma?


            Or on a practical level;

            The stress finishes off the landlord. The grandson then takes over the estate and is not such a good man. He is very upset at the tenant's low behaviour after the old man

            I have low quality machines still going strong more than 20 years old. I've also replaced one that was 2 years and 2 months old (I remember looking up the just out of date warranty- bearings had gone)

            Only reason I can think of is that whilst the property is untenanted the owner puts it up for rent but also puts it up for sale at a high price just in case a buyer willing to pay the high price comes along.

            Here in Aus, agents are allowed to do individual viewings, auctions are going ahead (albeit online) and you still see removal vans moving people in and out of places etc Sounds like we're a little less restricted than the UK at the moment.

            Hopefully we get over all this sooner rather than...

            I'm currently living abroad so am not up on the restrictions currently in place in the UK.

            The tenant in my house (in the UK) is leaving at the end of the month. My rental agent has advertised the property and has had plenty of interest, but is telling me that there is nothing they can...

            Some letting agents are offering 'virtual viewings' although in my area, these seem few and far between. I have also send a couple of properties switch to 'Let Agreed' in the past couple of days and many agents are processing everything digitally - I think it depends largely on the agent in terms of...
