    Whos name on PRESCRIBED INFORMATION

    I have a couple as tenants. head tenant (Male) has give all of the deposit and advance rent, the wife is also on the tenancy agreement as a tenant.

    Do I need to write the wife's name on the PRESCRIBED INFORMATION? And do I need to get it signed by the wife too?

    If it is a joint AST with both names on the contract, then it doesn't matter who paid the deposit or the rent; the two tenants are legally viewed as 'the Tenant' i.e., as if they are one person. The deposit should be protected in both names and the prescribed info should bear both names, too, (but you can deal with the 'lead tenant' for practical purposes. Are you using the DPS?

    If so, you will see from this DPS document that both/all names are required and that both/all Ts should sign:

      Yes both of them are added to the perscribed information as tenants.

      You fill in the male tenants name as "the person who has supplied the deposit"

      and both of them sign.

      This eliminates any risk of the female tenant making a complaint at the end of the tenancy and claim to the deposit should anything happen to the relationship.

      I check the details of the account where this money is coming from to confirm it is a sole account and where deposits are cash ask for a receipt from the joint account

        What about getting them to surrender existing tenancy and then signing a new one? Would that work?...

        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 ?...

        Hello,

        I'm trying to end my tenancy early due to a relationship breakdown with my housemate, hostility, bullying and my items going missing. There's currently four of us on the agreement which I'm trying to leave. I haven't lived there, apart from around 15 days(when the housemate was away)...

        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...

        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...

        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 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....
