  • Northern Ireland Guarantor

    Hi, I have prospective tenants who need a guarantor. Their only option is someone who lives in Northern Ireland. If the guarantee was on a property in England, would it be covered by English Law? If so, how would I enforce it?

    Any help/advice appreciated

    Northern Ireland is a separate country, so has it's own distinct legal system.

    I expect that if LL needs to pursue the guarantor for e.g. unpaid rent, you would need to get a solicitor who specialises in Northern Ireland law.

    A solution would be to get tenant's with a guarantor in England or Wales.

      A Northern Ireland guarantor can certainly guarantee an E&W tenant's obligations.
      The problems would potentially be in how to enforce an E&W liability/judgment against a guarantor outside the jurisdiction.

        You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

        My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

        Strike a deal taking into account your likely penalty and eviction costs and offer her an amount...

      • Tips for making a good impression when meeting a landlord
        Our potential new landlady has 'approved us in principle' but wants to meet us at the house as the final part in the referencing process. Beside the obvious such as look smart, tidy and professional and warn the kids to behave, any particular tips for making sure this last hurdle goes smoothly?

        Some of the above comments are crazy!. If they have aleady done their referencing and credit checks then they likely just want to meet you.

        As someone said above, they are trusting you with their very valuable asset.

        Tenancy finished a couple of months ago. The landlord withheld part of the deposit for a variety of reasons. As the tenant, I disputed those deductions as incorrect - they contradict the Checkout Report which was completed by an agent of the Landlord but that's besides the point....

        As the tenancy has finished you have no right to his address from agent.

        Have you spent £3 with land registry to get deeds of property & see who is listed as owner & what address?? (Landlord may not be owner... legal, no very uncommon...)
