    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.

        As a stupid landlord I take grave exception to your slur, Sir!

        Next week, amazing, unexpected, revelations that from time2time landlords lie to tenants.............. and agents from time2time lie to landlords AND tenants... and MPs & a particular special adviser seem to lie to most...

        My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

        Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

        Then you need to go the route I said. Unless there is a lease which specifically defines the demise of Flat X that includes the shed(s) there is no reason at all to explicitly exclude anything....

        As it's UC then as a landlord you need to submit a form UC47 to apply to the DWP for a 'Managed Payments to Landlord', which can include an amount for arrears.
        However any repayment of arrears granted will be on a 'pay back at so much a month' basis.

        UC47's can now be submitted online....

        Well, partly, but mainly I'm considering whether the sheds would have to be explicitly excluded from the tenancy in the AST. It's a question of what would be considered the default position in law....

        Interesting. I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Nonetheless, if the deeds stipulate that the sheds are part of the flat, rather than communal, surely that's quite a different matter....

        I believe the OP is coming from the position of:
        • The LL has granted us the right, beyond the tenancy agreement, to use two sheds.
        • Would the law consider that having granted that use, the LL cannot unilaterally withdraw the use of those sheds?
