    Funny question. If they don't find out, then its 1. If they find out, then its 10.


      i mean is it rare that they would,have you any experience etc?


        I guess you should hope the landlord doesn't read this forum!


          Polo, I really do empathise with you. You are obviously torn between wanting to be a good tenant and loving your dog.

          If the landlord finds out in the future about your dog, the worst he will try to do is end the tenancy. Once you are in, established, paying your rent on time and generally being the perfect tenant all landlords love, he will probably accept that you have a dog - most landlords want long term tenants rather than having to keep worrying about find new ones.

          Try to enjoy living in your new home and give your dog a pat from me!


            Thank you so much hes a great well behaved dog and we are great tenants its a agency so they may turn a blind eye if they find out.


              Why do you continue initiating new threads on the same subject? If you are so concerned and this concern is affecting your daily life, maybe you should come clean. I actually don't think you have much to worry about. What's the downside? The LL finds out and you offer to pay additional deposit for any potential damage and guarantee to him that you will have the property steam cleaned, again if necessary. That would be the easiest solution for the LL as well as opposed to going thru the courts for eviction.

              Stay cool!


                Well sorry!THANKS ANYWAY.

                  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....
