    The obvious one is the likely inabilty to get decent references, and the lack of a credit history in the UK.

    If the tenants turn out to be wrong'uns, there's not much chance of you recovering any bad debts once they've done a bunk and disappeared back to Darkest Peru.

    Somebody else once pointed out here that they don't rent to non-native-English speakers because of the chances of them suddenly forgetting how to speak English if they should find themselves in court over a dispute in the tenancy "I no understand, Landlord he no explain" and the judge coming down in favour of the tenant accordingly!

    New Landlord

    Hi

    I have recently decided to rent out my property and have had several enquiries from migrant workers living in the area. What are the issues in renting to non UK citizens and what if anything should I be especially aware of ?

    Sounds like some education in how to be a landlord might be wise. When I started I thought I knew what I was doing. I didn't, expensive, stupid, mistakes! If you think education is expensive, try ignorance....

    Agreed, break clauses very very easy to get wrong.

    Much simpler, easier, more flexibility to evict, fixed term 6 months then periodic....

    Hi All,

    I want to add the following break clause into my AST, but I’m wondering if I do so, do I also need to give my tenant also a break clause?

    ‘The Landlord may terminate this agreement by giving the Tenant not less than 2 months' written notice expiring [on or at any...

    Well you have heard the opinions of a great many very experienced landlords........ you are taking a very big risk with this, you say you don't need the money, so why take the risk ? Leave it empty and come back to it still....... empty, there is zero guarantee they will move out, friends or not.

  • Agreement for friends to live in my house
    by Tippy
    I cannot find a definitive answer to my question by googling so here goes.

    I have a house that I wish to allow a family who are close friends to live in while I live abroad as UK non-resident. I am trying to work out what sort of contract I should make between us.

    I don't mind...

    You created the AST, or you got it from somewhere?

    You can get the AST signed before someone moves in (how soon would they actually move in?) and when are you giving the keys?

    You should have a Guarantor's specific agreement if your going down that route, these days they can...

    Generally yes, landlord only break clause is an unfair term. There's really only very limited reasons to have break clause in typical residential letting. Just do a 6 months fixed term and then let it roll periodic.

    If the landlord does this then the storage company would come after him as it's he who has the contract witht them, not sure i would do this. I would though ask the Police to pass on the ex lodgers legal representitive, he or she will be in contact with the alleged offender and they can ask him what...
