    Moving from our house and letting it out

    We live in South Bristol(Whitchurch) and have been trying to sale our house without success.
    Because we owe a very small amount on our current house, we are interested in renting our house.
    Our only and main concern is moving out of our current house and not having anyone to move in.
    We have thought of the council renting our house.
    Any other suggestions gratefully received.

    Have you tried local letting agents who will (for a fee) find you some tenants?

    As well as the council, there are local Housing Associations who may be interested.

    The advantage of getting someone privately is that you are not locked into such a long tenancy agreement (usually) as with the Council or a HA.

      If you do sublet, you will need:
      a. to obtain prior written consent from mortgagee (lender); and
      b. to notify insurer.

        Thanks for the replies. It appears that if the tenants become wise to their s21 situation it will have to be a section 8 which by the looks of it will require specialist help of some variety. All this for helping a dedperate 'friend'.

        Hi, asking this for a friend (no, seriously, I am).
        Beginning of the year they agreed to rent their property to somone they considered almost family. As a favour they charged no bond, let them have the first 7 weeks rent free and have discounted their rent every month ever since due to their financial...

        I hope you're not as abrasive in person as you appear to be on this forum. Nearly 40,000 deaths but that doesn't matter as long as you can get a discount.

        I rent right now and want to maintain a rolling deal or 6 month tops but with lower rent circa 30% off. What the best way to go about this? I'm not looking for a moral/ethics conversation just from experience of those on either end of that kind of negoation what can work. I am the perfect tenant who...

        Thanks for the replies. So if the landlord wants to sell the house and the tenants have got wise to GSC situation thus invalidating s21 and stay within the amount of arrears agreed upon the tenancy agrement before eviction occurs how would they go about getting them out without resorting to a third...

        by Ozzie11
        Hi

        I noticed a new law means landlords need to arrange an EICR for new tenancies after July 2020 or before April 2021.

        Please can I get some advice on this? I started a tenancy in May 2020 - this is due to expire in November 2020. However it is likely the tenancy will be renewed...

        Mmm,

        Joshy you seem very keen to treat your landlord and housing as a commodity. This is one approach but don't be surprised if your landlord adopts the same approach. I would far prefer to have a professional business relationship based upon mutual respect , I don't instantly increase...
