Surely the landlord should have informed the agent as to what wasn't included etc at the beginning so the tenants could have made an informed choice?
    Doesn't seem right that the tenants have been left exposed like this when they didn't know there was a boundary issue until they moved in!
    It's not a boundary issue unless the extent of the rental property is unclear on the title plan(s).

    Assuming it is clear, then the plan will show either that the garden/parking is included with the flat, or it isn't. This needs to be established first.

    Your friends are exposed to eviction after the end of the fixed regardless of whether they make a fuss or not. The LL may wish to regain possession for any number of reasons.

      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 ?...

      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....
