    Guarantor and joint tenants

    We are currently referencing 3 tenants for a professional houseshare. One of the tenants is currently seeking employment after finishing Uni and we are therefore referencing his Father who will act as Guarantor. The rent per calendar month is £750 jointly payable by the 3 tenants. Is the Guarantor liable for the full montly rent if any of the 3 tenants default on payment, or just his son who he is acting as Guarantor for? Thanks for your advice

    Thanks for your reply. It is one lease with all three names on it for the full monthly rent. My understanding is that the Guarantor would ultimately be responsible for the full rent?

      Absolutely correct,

      one AST agreement with 3 names, guarantor acting on behalf of all the tenants liabilities. I would definately make this known to the guarantor before he signs anything.

        If you used the search facility you will find I have answered this question on many occasions, the last being fairly recently!
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          In fairness I tried to use the search facility before posting but could not get it to work. Obviously can't say whether the Op tried or not just that it wouldn't work for me.

            I doesn't work for me inside this forum - I had to go back to the previous page and try there - but even so it seems to be limited in how far back it goes = server space I suppose, I guess.

              I find if I 'right-click' on Search and open in new window, the facility then works

                Agree the search facility within the forum is temperamental. For me it was working quite well when I checked when this search query was first posted. It still is right now!

                Have got into the habit of using the search facility under the LandlordZONE forums page rather than here under the Rental Property Questions.

                The problem could be related to which browser (and version) you are using and your actual service provider.

                A right click and "open in new page' is very useful. Apart from solving access problems to search, it gives you an easy source for copying extracts or the URL link to the page you have found and inserting it in the post you are writing in the first opened version of the browser.

                Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.

                  Thanks for clarifying this. I am sure I will become more familiar with this site as time goes on Paul F and all it's search facilities!

                    Solicitors have a code of practice.

                    I have today been told that I am getting evicted and that there is a hearing next week.
                    But I haven't received any Court papers, no notice to quit, no section 8, or section 21.
                    I don't even know how this is possible as I thought there was a ban on eviction hearings.

                    If there's mould in the property it almost has to come from condensation inside.
                    The (alkaline) lime in the plaster and the acid in the mortar mean that water coming from outside doesn't usually allow mould to develop.

                    Mould forms when water that condenses on the surface is left there....

                    I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?


                    BACKGROUND
                    A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.


                    The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

                    I don't have any idea how this is meant to work.
                    But, the only people who really matter are the landlord and the tenant.

                    The agent works for the landlord, and if they've found themselves in a conflict if interest, have to resolve it in favour of the landlord.
                    They'll never accept...

                    by Kj47
                    I have received a s21 notice to leave at the end of August (this includes the current extended 3 month covid19 period). I wish to leave the property early as I have now found another property to rent but this can only be ‘held’ for a period of 2 months by the letting agent. I have asked if I can...

                    Yes, the courts are still just about functioning, so a money claim is still possible, if unlikely.
                    If a landlord came here seeking advice about a tenant in arrears, I would suggest a money claim rather than a possession claim, in the first instance.

                    However, tou should still receive...

                    Yes if they have claimed for it, but it depends on what basis the possession proceedings are made. I don't think there was sarcasm, just a character. Artfuls comment re benefits is referring to himself, and he gave good advice re shelter. And some landlords are bad we know that, but I'm not one of the...

                    Jon66: there were sarcastic responses from a person further up. It's there to read.
                    I did contact CAB and my local council. I told my landlord in 2014 there was a leak, nothing done. Same again in 2017, 2018. Told in 2019 bath tub was dangerous, don't bath, nothing done by LL. At that same...
