    Anyway, it's academic because you're not acting as an agent, you're actually the landlord.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        yes. Address given. Brother lives with me
        So you are the person who might or might not want legal aid (no chance I think..), declare ALL rent income to HMRC by submitting a SA tax return etc etc etc..

        For your sake may I humbly suggest join RLA or NLA (they are merging soon) e.g. (tax-deductible)
        https://www.rla.org.uk
        - and do an intro course on being a landlord e.g. one or more of
        https://www.rla.org.uk/landlord/cour...-academy.shtml

        Also suggest there is a document in place between your brother and you giving you the right to be landlord: Could be (not my area, I'm not recommending or not) a common-law tenancy from him to you permitting you to sublet. Such a shame an old copy can't be found dating from before the current tenancy: Suggest you get legal advice from a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant: The typical high-street solicitor is likely to be out of their depth
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

          Thanx artful dodger

          does this common law tenancy have to be in any specific format. Can you suggest an example

          Also not sure about declaring income. I haven’t had any income from his property It’s his house and the vast majority goes to paying his mortgage

              You are the de facto named LL and IMO need to complete an HMRC SA Tax Return for UK Property.

                There's a reason it's called income tax and not profit tax.
                You are a landlord receiving income and need to declare it (and, if you then pay it to your brother, so might he - I think he is letting the property to you and you are letting it to the tenant).

                Even if the amount of tax you are due to pay is low (or nothing) you can still be fined for not reporting the income to HMRC.

                I think that you probably need to see a solicitor to put this on a sensible footing, you are making the situation worse at the moment.
