    Company let

    We have found someone who wants to rent our property. He is an Indian guy whose company has a long term contract here. The company will be renting the property not the individual. We are doing a check on the company through the firm who do our usual credit checks & we will get a reference from a landlord they previously rented from, so we're happy with that.
    My question is "Do we need anything different in the tenancy agreement?"

    Agreement will show Company as tenant, so it's NOT within the Housing Act 1988 and cannot be an AST. Otherwise, and once offending clauses are deleted, same basic Agreement can be used. You can even legally receive a deposit, becasuse TDS nonsense applies only to ASTs.

        Sorry for my ignorance, but what is an S8?

          John boy is refering to notices you give if you want to get rid of a tenant.

          You will have a common law contract with your company, not an AST, so many of the notices to requiring possession such as section 21 and section 8, are not relevant.

          If all goes well, you will issue a fixed term tenancy; which will then expire after the fixed period, requiring NO NOTICE from either side to end the tenancy. ( An AST always requires notice to be served by the LL if he requires possession), or a periodic tenancy which will renew itself every month, or period, until either of you serves a notice to quit. Section 8 notice is (not relevant to you) is usually served if there is some breach of contract.

            I think I understand all that, but just to clarify for a thicko - Are we as safe with this arrangement as we would be with an AST, given that there are really no guarantees with an AST.
            Are there any dangers that we need to be aware of.

              It depends on the terms in the contract !!!

              Some companies provide their own contracts with renewal options....so you would need to check out the terms they want by getting good legal advice.

                Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

                While many on here worked their socks off for years during the day and then evenings and weekends putting their money into property, many others decided to live for the day and have total disregard for the future and what it may bring.

                I'm more concerned at the possibility of a winter of unheated rental properties and then the tenants expecting me to deal with the resultant mold.

                I think the deposit of five weeks rent is more trouble than its worth. Not taking deposits means being a bit more selective in choosing tenants.
                Considering the value of the asset the tenants are trusted with the deposit rules are crazy. But thats only one of the red tape obstacles to being a...

                Hi All,

                I got an estate agents to find me a tenant and do all the paperwork and get proof of service for everything, tenant moved in and paid deposit just over a week ago.

                The estate agents took the deposit from...

                The daft thing is that because people will owe them the money, it won't even affect the energy company profits.

                Looking after a significant amount of someone else's money is not a trivial undertaking.

                I spent most of my career designing and building business solutions to replace manual processes.
                So I have a reasonable idea of what's possible.

                As said the idea of simply not paying is in the realms of crazy. They can get a warrant and fit a pre-payment meter to the house without your consent, i understand they will not be able to do this with everyone but the message will soon go out if they target the 1st few thousand, and as said your credit...
