    Signatures on an AST

    I have read on LLZ that it is advisable to have each page of a Check In Inventory signed by both the Landlord and Tenant. Is it therefore advisable to have each page of the AST signed by both as well?

    I never have done in the past and usually use my own AST and just number the bottom of each page ie Page 1 of 6, Page 2 of 6 etc etc so it is obvious that no pages are missing and then I sign the back page only and get the Tenant and their Guarantor to sign the back page as well but I have just received a blank AST from a local letting agent which has a space at the bottom of each page indicating that the Landlords and Tenants signatures are required on all pages

    Of course it is better. Not even sure why you are asking?
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      It is better, but providing both parties have a copy of the agreement, it would be easy to show where there were any changes. I have never heard of such a process before - but now I have, I might do it myself in future.

        My tenancy agreements always have numbered pages, each page initialled by both me and T, (and signed on the last page).

          The calculation should be (monthly rent *12/365 * No. of days) to get the right cost per day.

          I have a query in respect to apportioning of rent.

          If a tenant services notice to terminate the tenancy agreement under a break clause and the notice expires at a random day in the month - i.e. not at the end of the monthly rental period; will in this case the rent due for the last period...

          I understand the logic to pro-rate rent already paid when the notice is given during mid-month but the situation is different. In this case the notice to terminate was given 2+ months before expiry of the tenancy. So before the start of the last rental period (rent monthly payable in advance), it is...

        • Reply to Capital Gains Tax - do I need an accountant?
          by plgeorgiev
          Property tax and in general all tax has always been complicated to me, so I prefer letting my accountant care for these things.
          In regard to Capital gains, because I'm a foreigner I found an Irish based tax agent that prepares tax returns internationally and they saved me a lot of time and money....

        • Capital Gains Tax - do I need an accountant?
          by zoreh
          Hi, i’m wondering whether it’s necessary to use an accountant to calculate CGT and submit it on HMRC website. I’m aware of the CGT rate and allowance, so can easily figure out the capital gains. I have also kept a list of the financial costs, conveyancing and other costs related to purchasing...

          You should not agree a random date to end the tenancy, it should finish on the day before the rent is due, as long as the correct notice has been given. It would then be at your discretion to then apportion the rent if you wanted to.

          As I understand it, the general principle is that rent is paid in advance for the month. If tenant chooses not to use the whole month, then they are not entitled to a refund.

          by Lawcruncher
          A significant flaw in your plan is that you want to use the property in June, July and August and the only possible lettings are holiday lettings when the popular months will be June, July and August.

          Apart from that, if you want a flat there are all the snags (understatement!) associated...

          HI, I am a UK ex-pat living overseas and am considering buying an apartment in the UK when I retire for two purposes. One as a summer house to spend July, Aug, September in, and also to give my partner a UK base to make it easy for her if she decides that on my death she wishes to return to the UK....

          by Bob Biscuits
          Yes, hopefully it won't go that far as the council aren't aware that our S21 is not valid, and if/when it gets as far as court I will tell the court/letting agent that fact and it will buy us another few months, hopefully in which time we will find somewhere....
