    adding tenants partner to lease


    My new tenant moved into my property in July 2008 on a 6 months lease , it runs out on 27th Jan 2009 and I have agreed with her it will run periodic now on 2 monthly basis with both sides giving 2 months notice either to renew or quite. So it runs now from 27th jan to 27th March, she must give notice on or before 27th Jan if she wishes it to end in March and so on. For information I agreed this back in November, this was my request as i wasnt sure if i would be moving back to the city and wanted to make sure I could retain the property for my use in near future if need be, it also suited her circumstances of not knowing if her partner was relocating to the city with his job.

    Her partner has now relocated and would like to be added to the lease as of yesterday 07 jan 2009. However it is not not 6 month short assured, do I need to issue new documents other than a letter which we have both signed and dated back in November agreeing the 2 monthly terms, so how can I add him to a lease? Does it mean I have to issue a new 6 month short assured lease? I wont be moving back within next 6 months. I just want to check before I ask them if they would now prefer to sign 6 month lease.

    This property is in Scotland

    Good Afternoon everyone,
    Its my first post on the site and probably like most first posts on here I am asking for help !
    Without going into too much detail my tenant has decided to stop paying his rent , after I gave him notice to leave, and ignore Section 8 and Section 21 notices sent by...

    I think I'm going to down the housing solicitor / eviction company route.
    Its going to cost me but this is really bringing me down now in all honesty . I've got a daughter and Mom with very serious health issues and I need to concentrate on them rather than a jerk who's taking me for a ride !...

    Could not agree more, but given the reluctance of the social sector to '' do the right thing'', we will always be in a battle to get them to house vulnerable people.

    What a sad state of affairs....

    My daughter is a tenant in a house and has been for 7years without any problems for 6 of the years. Last year she had to give up working full time due to health reasons. Since then they've got worse, she suffered a blood clot which leaves her breathless and can't have oxygen as she has a gas hob. She...

    The problem here is that the woman was not vulnerable and thus chose the private option. She is now in the wrong sector ,and the landlord is not trained to address such problems....

    Sad to say it but i would evict them now...... it is coming our way and when it hits the reasons you have will not qualify, as i suspect many others will and only time will show them up in this forum and the wider press.

    Vulnerable individuals should really not be in the PRS, but due to...

    I do JKO. The price of electric is scary. I have put gas into one of my all electrics but one let recently in BH3 went purely on location (and it's summer)- previous tenant left after 2.5 years mainly due to proposed electric cost.
    My freeholder has not applied for gas to be installed to the...

    You guys might remember my magnum opus renovating my first flat here in Reading from early 2018 to half way through 2019.

    As shown in the title though, no-one seems to stay longer than their lease. The first lady asked to be released in April 2020, as she was flying home afraid of Covid....

    The things I would ask, and try and get answers to are:

    1. Can the property be mortgaged (even with the help of a specialist mortgage broker) if no, then the market for re-selling in the future is limited.
    2. Is the premium for insuring the property more than a traditional,
