    Deed of Assignment

    I would just like to check my facts on Deed of Assignment.

    I have 2 Tenants one of which has given notice to leave, the remaining Tenant would like to stay on and move his girlfriend in asap.

    After reading through previous postings on this site I asked Agent to arrange Deed of Assignment as I would like Tenancy to continue as a Periodic one. The agent is now saying that this can not be done and that a new Contract needs to be drawn up for the remaining Tenant and his girlfriend. Is this just the Agent trying to make more money out of the Tenants or is it correct?

    Agent is wrong and possibly just wants £££ for arranging new tenanacy!

      I thought you were on holiday Jeffrey

      I was going to say that they probably don't do many Deeds of Assignment and don't have a ready document to hand.

        Yes (I'm on holiday until 11 April, despite which I didn't want the world to be deprived too long) and yes (Agent can't be arsed).

          I'm afraid it may be worth speaking to a wills and probate solicitor for advice.

          Hi all, hope you're keeping safe.

          Not sure which forum to put this in - happy for Moderator to move if appropriate.

          Scenario is as follows. In 2018, elderly widower changes the will he made jointly with wife in 1980s. He does it all properly, using a solicitor and include...

          Yes I really do not want to serve anything formal. I will let them know in a few months that I am considering selling the flat in approx May next year. If I can then switch to periodic month by month from August this year then hopefully that means I can avoid any long notice period. But I won't bring...

          by annam222
          Hi all,
          I rent out my flat using an estate agents let & collect service. It is rented out using an assured shorthold tenancy agreement of 12 months (no break clause). The 12 months ends in August this year. I have just been told by the estate agents that "due to Covid the law has changed...

          The best thing to do is to talk to the tenants and let them know about the possibility of selling the property.
          That gives them plenty of time to plan their move and find somewhere else to live.

          If you go straight to a formal notice it can do a lot of damage to the relationship....

          You say he can afford the rent... how do you know that ? Does he work ? The idea of claiming under a '' false statement '' will be very difficult to prove, i would seek the assistance of a professional agency who can check all your paperwork and get this parasite out.

          No sadly, it isn't possible and even if it were, he is happy where he is. He has been offered the option, but has declined.

          The thorny issue seems to be the capacity question. To any sensible human being, the fact that he can forget a decision as soon as he has made it would suggest that...

          Thank you very much. I didn't realise that a section 21 had to be served, this is my first time renting out my flat. I thought that once the 12 month period ended that we either renew or the agreement just ends.
          I may want to sell the flat in Spring next year so I had queried with the estate agents...
