    One is moving out..

    Hello all,

    I am new to the forum (hello all!) and I have a question about my tenancy.

    I am currently living with my sister, on a joint tenancy. She is now thinking about moving out and in with her partner. Since I can't afford the rent on my own I have been thinking about getting my boyfriend into the house.

    Is that possible? It would require a new contract though, wouldn't it?
    Or do we both have to move out?

    Thanks a lot!

    Two options (both needing L's consent):
    1. You + S surrender old tenancy to L. L grants new tenancy to you + BF.
    2. You + S assign old tenancy to you + BF.

              Hi There,

              I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

              Your information is severely deficient,
              Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
              You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
              Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

            • Broken Boiler
              HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

              I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

              Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
