    Redundancy before I sign new agreement

    Hi all,

    Just wanting some opinions. Due to issues in my current rented property, I am having to move. I am currently going through a consultation period of possible redundancy, me and my partner have now put a holding deposit down but I'm wanting to know if the estate agent find out about the redundancy will they refuse us? We have enough for 3 months rent and I have 3 interviews lined up with 2 of them being second round interviews, please let me know thoughts as this is my dream property and don't want to let it go

    Thank you

    If your partner's salary isn't sufficient I would expect them to turn you down if they find out. If it's a big company I doubt they will say anything until they actually make you redundant as until then you are only under threat of it. Usually they just confirm you're employment status and salary.

      Of more relevance why do you want the property if you cannot afford it? 3 months of rent is very low savings if you don't have a job - maybe you should wait for the job to be confirmed first - do you have to leave the current place?

        I would agree with the above, if i were under threat then i would certainly not be making a big purchase...... and new more expensive AST is just that.

          Are you buying or renting this dream Property?
          Mortage Lenders now have to consider Affordability and LLs should apply similar with a Credit check recomendation.

            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.

            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.

            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...

            Check that your landlord allows it. If so, you'd use a lodger agreement. That means you can ask the person to leave pretty easily if it goes bad. You can also take a deposit equal to a month's rent, and then use that if they miss a rental payment or cause any damage. It doesn't have to be protected....
