    Change of Landlord- New AST?

    Hi

    Possibly being v stupid here with this question, but could someone tell me whether or not, if the landlord changes when a flat gets sold,does a new tenancy agreement have to be issued or deposit scheme changed? I understand that all the terms should remain the same though. The deposit is being held by the agent and the rent is paid to the agent. Is it ok for the previous ll's name to still appear on the AST?

    Does a tenant need to be told if a freeholder changes too?

    Thanks in advance

No. I understand that all the terms should remain the same though. Confirmed. The deposit is being held by the agent and the rent is paid to the agent. Is it ok for the previous ll's name to still appear on the AST? Yes.

    Does a tenant need to be told if a freeholder changes too? Yes.

      Thanks for that!
      Does the tenant still need to know about a change in landlord though even if everything else stays the same?

        Yes. Until you are given notice and have been supplied with your current landlord's authority to pay rent to the new landlord, keep paying rent as you do now and assume there has been no change.

        If in doubt, come back and ask.
