    tenant assigns tenancy before joint ast ends

    hi
    If a tenant who has signed a twelve month joint ast assigns the tenancy to someone else, should the original tenant complete a deed of assignment , or will it be sufficient for the new tenant to sign a new ast with the remaining tenants?
    Thanks

    The old tenants (all of them) sign an agreement that assigns the tenancy to the new group of tenants (ie the ones remaining PLUS the new one).

    Example

    A, B, C & D assign the tenancy to B, C, D & X

    The tenants will need to seek landlords approval of tenant X before the assignment and he may wish to reference X or perform other checks before making a decision.

    There is a sample deed of assignment provided by another poster on this thread

      Yes. Note that, in Snorkerz's example, 'A' alone cannot assign anything.

        It's almost impossible to reset the tenancy with a new agreement.
        The buyer will inherit the previous tenancy at the same point that they're able to let the property on the new agreement, so any new tenancy is going to be a follow on tenancy.
        So things that need to be done at the very start...

        I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
        Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

        You're really going to struggle with that not being a tenancy.
        If the tenant can lock the door to exclude you, and they could wash in a sink, that's likely to be a dwelling house.

        I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

        I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

        How basic is your understanding?

        From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....

        Unless it is REALLY cheap - don't!

        I inherited a property with a regulated tenant. The rent can only go up once every 2 years, by a specified amount, although more often if you improve the property, but it will always be cheap.

        Most tenants have been in a very long time and...

        Agree with above but if the property is in poor condition and the tenant elderly (or could be child of tenant who may be middle aged) then steer clear. I would definitely speak with the tenant.

        Emailing means the person may or may not receive it, and if they do, they may or may not reply. I didn't want to wait around to find out if I do get a reply. I wanted to get a phone number.
        In any case, I managed to get hold of the Landlord via the business. The ball is now in his court.
