    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!

                    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....

                    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:'...

                    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?
                    ...

                    Hi

                    I noticed a new law means landlords need to arrange an EICR for new tenancies after July 2020 or before April 2021.

                    Please can I get some advice on this? I started a tenancy in May 2020 - this is due to expire in November 2020. However it is likely the tenancy will be renewed...

                    There may or may not be a lease in that case. But there might be. If there is a lease, then it makes no difference that the lessee and freeholder happen to be the same people. If there are no leases, I cannot see that you have any particular rights beyond the flat that you lease. The presumption in...

                    Yes, the tenants have to take reasonable steps.

                    But the OP didn't mention fans or ventilation and did mention opening the windows "when" bathing or cooking....

                    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....

                    No, you are telling them that they need to take reasonable steps such as removing excess water and ventilating the bathroom after showering.
                    And, maybe, treating hte mould when it appears.

                    In my shower room:
                    1. I use a "squeegee" to remove most water from walls, screen, and
