    If the tenant sublets, they can create an HMO, and you may still need a licence.
    Letting to a family usually avoids the HMO route altogether.
    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).

      As long as the numbers of tenants are not over the limit of the license and mortgage lender it is fine.

        What ever you do..... give the tenants lots of notice, far more than the law says you need too. If you do this then you will keep them '' on side ''', it really will help you along the line.

        • Section 21 abolition - timetable
          by Kape65
          I know that abolishing Section 21 is not yet a done deal but is looking likely. Do we know when the governments white paper is likely to show it's face and how long after that before we will not be able to use Section 21 ( a crystal ball question I know ). I'm hoping to repossess at least one more property...

          Whatever the outcome of your personal situation it does highlight why LLs won't take tenants who don't meet their affordability criteria - with or without a guarantor. That is bad news for low income tenants.

        • Landlord dispute - As guarantor I'm on the hook for missing payments
          by gnicholls
          Hi everyone,

          I'm hoping someone can provide me with some advice on the following. I'm acting as a guarantor for a friend who has been living in a flat that has turned out to be a bit of a hole. Based on the below I'm looking to understand whether I should just pay the missing rent and have...

          You've got good evidence with inventory and photos, agreed by tenant, at tenancy start and then similar evidence at end? And photos of eg garden issues you describe?

          I use guarantees quite a lot and would not have thought that was enforceable. For starters, it is not a deed. It also does ensure that you have been made aware of the significant implications of acting as guarantor. That said, my views on what constitutes a valid guarantee have been somewhat influenced...

        • Reply to Money Claim Telephone Hearing
          by bethy
          Hi there, sorry to hear you also have this. I feel like mine was a bit of a car crash as none of the paperwork was there so it got a bit 'he said/she said'. But other than that it was pretty fair.

          I was asked to outline the situation as I saw it and what had happened to date. Then the defendants...

        • Money Claim Telephone Hearing
          by rapid111111
          S21 was issued, tenants left, has 9 months rent arrears amounting to over 10k+. The hearing review (which I wasn't called for or required to attend) progressed onto a money claim telephone hearing which is coming up as there was no longer a need for a possession claim. So I guess that means everything...
