    References & Admin Fees

    I have foreign couple looking to rent one of my properties. They have only recently found employment, do not have a previous UK landlord and have no UK guarantor. What do you feel is the best way to reference people who have recently moved to the UK?
    Also admin fees, what do you feel is highest amount you can charge for obtaining references, drawing up lease agreements etc?
    Can anyone help?

    Getting insurance re prospective tenants would be easier than referencing them. Try MARAS.

      Where you live would be determined on the facts of your particular case.
      As you wouldn't be living there, it wouldn't pass.

      Based on your two recent threads, you're trying to achieve the impossible.
      If there was a way of legally letting a property with little or no risk of a...

      You need to actually be living there. Your proposal also creates an HMO, whether or not you reserve a room for yourself. You'd better check local licensing conditions before you decide....

      My tenant who is 4 months into her tenancy agreement has moved her partner in without permission and Im wondering can use this to issue a new tenancy agreement with his name on it. She isn't the easiest tenant and I would also like to add an agreement break to the new tenancy because of the difficulty...

      I assume from your question that you would like to have them on a lodgers agreement so you could evict them with a moments notice.

      To answer this quickly, from the details you gave above, you would create an AST even if you used the lodger paperwork. By you not living there, you remove...

      I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

      Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

      House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
      Garden was left in a mess...

      That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

      Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
      Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....
