  • AST for HMO?

    Hi guys - is it just standard ASTs required for individuals in HMOs? cheers

  • #2
    You need to explain a lot more before you are likely to get an answer.

    There is not a standard AST as such but it should contain standard terms that are under the jurisdiction fo the Housing Act 1988.

    When you have explained the position more clearly then it might be relevant to put all tenants on one AST. Are there separate units or one property with several bedrooms?
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out. As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

      I wasn't aware that the identity of council tax payers was a public record. You might be able to get a statement that it wasn't you. without breaching the Data Protection Act.

    • Landlord asks that T to pay deposit protection charge each time we renew AST
      JP23
      Why must we continuously renew our deposit with the scheme each time we re-sign our AST i.e. every 12 months?

      Why can the deposit not remain protected throughout the duration of the overall tenant occupation?

      Is our landlord acting in questionable faith by asking us to pay...

      The main problem I have for the charge being passed on is that often times (esp. through agents) the charge is actually considerably more than the protection fee they pay the schemes. It's been used as another way for agents (or landlords) to make money.

      Your still confusing your own council tax liability at your current address with that of the rental property.

      If no-one was registered as living there then you would have been billed as landlord. The fact that you haven't been indicates that they are aware of who was tenant. ASK THEM FOR...

      To be fair lvkn yes the rent covers everything you state, but the 48 pound charge Is your choice and is avoidable.

      You choose to use an insurance based scheme and hold the tenants money collecting interest. How is it fair to force that charge on your tenant each time?

      With...

      Hello
      i am a landlord and have insurance based deposit protection (I hold the deposit in segregated client account and register it with My Deposits) every time a new contract is drawn up we have to pay £48. If a tenancy is renewed, we pay £48. If someone moves out of one of our multiple tenant...

    • Excessive estate agent fees
      Cml241
      I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

      If you have no ongoing contract with the agent and it was "find" only, they have no right to force you into a new AST.

      Depending on the terms of your contract there's nothing to prevent you, if your feeling confident, in renewing the contract yourself and taking over.
