    Dont have access to a printer

    Hi,

    I have a new tenant moving in. Ive got the contract and Condition Report ready to go but I dont have access to a printer. Is it enough for me to email these to the tenant and ask them in writing to respond theyre happy with it all?

    Thanks

    If this is the tenant who's moving into a currently tenanted property at the end of June, how do you have a condition report?

    I'm not sure what "enough" means in this context.
    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).

      Usually the myself and the tenant would sign the documents. But if I cant print these off how can I show that he has signed and agreed?

        You can use an online document signing process, but as there are other things you're going to have to print and get signed, I'd suggest buying a printer.

        There's no actual legal requirement for a written tenancy agreement at all (but you'd be daft to go that way).

          OK, thanks jpkeates. Yes, probably best I buy a printer. Or see if I give a friend a few quid and use his.

            Jtufty. I am a veteran printer of the cheap variety buyer. There are many available. Save hassle and inconvenience and buy one.

                Jtufty, I dont wish to be unkind, but you seem to be trying to cut corners. There are usually legal and practical implications that you're probably not aware of every time you do that. If you're not already a member of NRLA, can I suggest you join and read all their guides avidly.

                  Thanks DPT57 . Im not trying to cut corners (or not intentionally). I want/need everything to be above board. What do you think that I might be missing? Perhaps there are common pitfalls where landlords come a cropper?

                    Stone me, the last one I bought (printer, copierscopier, etc etc) was less than £50

                    Buy one!

                      A landlord without a printer?? This is like a builder not having his own shovel or a landscape gardener not having his own lawnmower.

                        I have to agree with the above jtufty i don't even know if this is a serious post!? and It's not clear how you are not able to buy one....
                        as above you need to do your job as a landlord properly and you will need a printer to do this......

                          When i think about the amount of things I need to print out, I would be lost without a printer.

                          You can pick up a nice cheap inkjet which will suffice. I prefer laser for the quality.

                            You appear to be looking at things with rose-tinted spectacles.

                            You need to think about what could go wrong and what you need to do to protect yourself if it does go wrong.

                              The raft of recent legislation pretty much requires that you print a planet destroying amount of paper (and some parts of it, such as the rather wonderful "How to rent" booklet are designed so as to require an entire ink cartridge worth of ink per page).

                              Strangely enough the terrorist thugs Extinction Rebellion haven't taken this up as an issue.
