  • Multiple occupancy on separate ASTHAs

    I would like to rent a 4 bed semi with individual ASHTAs (Assured ShortHold tenancy Agreements) as tenants do not know each other.

    I have read that it is better to give them exclusive occupation of at least one room such as the bedroom and to ensure that this is clearly identified (both in agreement and on the door). Please could you advise me if this is the case and if so why is that?

    Kindest regards,

    Phil

        What you really mean is AST's.

        So that I haven't grown a beard before I finish I will precis. Separate agreements allow tenants to move in and out at varying intervals, whereas if they were all on the same agreement, as soon as one left, you would have to draw-up another one as you can't amend an AST! Clear? Good!
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          Exclusive occupation of a room

          Hi Paul_f,

          Thanks for clarifying that

          Also, is it better to give each tenant with a separate agreement the exclusive occupation of a room such as the bedroom or not?

          many thanks

          Phil

            Whichever way you look at this, it is entering HMO territory (House in Multiple Occupation) with consequent interference by the local authority and the fire officer etc. as to safety regs etc.
