    Having bought, serve S3 % s48 notice(s) or could be painful.

    This is quite a good website for someone buying a tenanted property: https://www.vestaproperty.com/blog/1...anted-property

    Don't trust vendor or his solicitor to tell you things - ask tenant! Vendor too likely to lie. e.g. If tenant moved in early enough not an AST, no s21, (almost) impossible to evict. Regardless of shiny new signed AST

    Many thanks for your replies, I get the message. The onus is on me to ensure everything is as it should be. As far as is possible that is.

    Take the view that if you need to evict the T, could you with the information you currently have, if you don't then these are the aspects to get from the other party.

    I have been in this situation before, but I'm not sure I'd do it now.

    I'd take the checklist from the government's template rental agreement and the flow chart from the Nearly Legal section 21 checker and insist on evidence that everthing that needed to be done had been done (or that the tenant signed a document agreeing that they had) before agreeing to proceed.

    The right to rent stuff should be OK as you aren't the person giving the occupant's permission to occupy, that happened prior to your involvement, it would apply with a follow up tenancy, though.

  • Landlord obligations when buying a BTL with incumbent tenant

    Hi

    Given the changes in landlord's responsibilities in recent times I would like to understand what those responsibilities are when taking on a new BTL with an incumbent tenant.

    Should I request all the relevant info from the vendor or do I have an obligation to go through everything myself? This is in particular regard to the tenant e.g. right to rent etc?

    I have been in this situation before but things have changed so much recently

    Many thanks in advance for any advice.
