    I don't think that you're going to get much positive response from this forum's users on rent to rent.
    The general view is that rent to rent is not a great idea.

    As an uncalled for and possibly rude question, how did you end up with an "investment property" before you had a means of leveraging that investment?
    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).

      Thoroughly bad idea. Google "rent to rent scam"

          I'm sure I can register a company at Companies House, make an agreement with you in the company which has no asset's name, collect a few months rent, fail to pass it over and then disappear.

              KTC Thank you for replying. Apologies I should have mentioned,the agent says the money is in their account and will be transferred in 24 hrs once I have handed over the keys.I wasn't sure about the usual practice, does agent pay landlord before tenants move in or after....

              Hello All,

              Hope everyone is safe and well. I'm a new landlord and am letting out my flat through an estate agent. Both tenant and I have signed the contract. The contract was signed 10 days ago and tenants were supposed to move in 2-3 days but then agent told me the tenant will move in...

              A 5 watt Led Bulb (more than enough to light a hall) left on 24/7 365 days a year will use 43.8kwh/year at less than £10.

              Suggest you spin one off your flat, share the £10 with the other flat, and tell them to get lost. They can remove the meter if they like - it's not yours. And shift...

              Hi all,

              I own and rent out the ground floor flat of a building that has one other flat upstairs.

              It has come to light, that the original owner of the upstairs flat had installed a third "landlord's" meter to provide light for the single light in the hallway downstairs....

              Err, rent clear before keys and possession. At the very least, money cleared on the agent's account if you trust agent not to go bankrupt and fold in the mean time. If the agent want you to give possession before money, ask the agent whether they are legally guaranteeing the rent payment (i.e. they'll...

              Utility companies are not allowed to cut people off in case it causes undue hardship.

              When a tenant moves into a property that become liable for the usage on a deemed contract even if they don’t open an account. I would suggest that the occupants are liable for the usage.

              I don't really understand how that works.
              Are you and the "other landlord" landlord leaseholders and, together, the freeholder?
              Why is the "other landlord" not the owner of upstairs and you the owner of downstairs?

              Who is responsible for the bill would be...

              Some are suggesting that because myself and the other owner are now the landlord's, we inherit that meter even though when we bought our properties we were never made aware of it or, in my case, consulted before it was installed. I don't understand why they didn't just stop supplying power after 3 months...

              you aren't liable. For the sake of one bulb just spur off your flat with a maintained bulkhead, more cost effective than a landlords account. A manintained common parts light is one with a rechargeable battery which will come on in a power failure. If however you let your flat to a council or housing...

              Well Scottish Power is saying someone has to pay and they suggesting that's the current landlords which is me and the other flat owner. They absolutely won't make any changes like removing it, switching supply off or anything because our names weren't on the original account before it was closed. It...
