  • Resident landlord puzzle

    A large country house jointly owned by brother and suster - sister lives in one half, brother in the other half. The doors between each half are locked so each has a separate dwelling. The sister decides to let out her half while the brother still lives in the other half as his principal home. Since the brother owns part of the property and needs to give some consent? to the letting is he a resident landlord?

    Answer - Property has not been split into 2 semis with separate titles so legally is still 1 property owned jointly by both sibblings. If this is the case then consent/agreement will be necessary.



    Freedom at the point of zero............

      Thanks for the response. Sister and brother both give consent but who becomes the landlord, the sister or both of them? And if the answer is the latter then that makes this a resident landlord in which case the occupier will have a licnce and not a tenancy?

        They would be joint landlords and suggest tenant is a lodger paying weekly to keep things simple.

          Hi Cymro123 !!!
          I would recommend live in landlord agreement or lodger as one of the owners still live in the property.

              Because the poor old OP of THIS THREAD has seen it derailed by a long but nevertheless valid debate/argument/discussion about the interpretation of law, I've started a new thread because the discussion has raised some questions I'd like answers to.

              Say I have a tenant, whose AST started...

              well I kind of hoped that the OP would get their thread back if it was rerouted here but I didn't realise that this really only arises where there is disagreement. Plus the debate over there shows no sign of slowing down despite the OP's plea (in post #39 that he's now confused!).

              Ah w...

              okay... so if I'd asked them to leave in the middle of the period, then I'd have to refund but my example had them leaving at the end so no refund due....

            • Can Mrs T change locks?
              Berlingogirl
              Mr and Mrs T are splitting up. Mrs T is looking for a new place before giving notice to LL. Mrs T is going to give notice to LL then move immediately to new place. Mr T has mental health issues and verbally intimidates and bullies Mrs T so she needs to get out before he can start on her.

              ...

              Tenancies don't change just because someone (usually LL) changes the locks.
              Mrs T needs specialist advice, as does LL if Mrs T explains her dilemma to him.

              LL could offer Mr T a sole Tenancy after expiry of Mrs T's Notice.

              My example was hypothetical. Both parties have "plans/wishes" and, feelings aside, there are plenty of reasonable situations where a LL might want to ask a decent T to leave their home.

              We have two properties where we might have to do this in the next few years. One involves co-ownership...

            • Tenants from Council Waiting List
              wilfred
              If you get tenants from the council waiting list, and the council pay the monthly rent direct to the LL, when their 12 month tenancy comes to an end, do the council still advise them to remain if the tenant has nowhere else to stay? It would be all the same if the LL wanted to sell the property asa...

              Artful - It's not that's going to be changing the locks - It's Mrs T.

              I'm not the landlord in this instance. Sorry, I should have made that clear.

              Mrs T is concerned that if Mr T remains in the property after the notice period ends she will be responsible for all the ££££...
