    Releasing personal details

    A new tenant of HMO working in a job we are not supposed to know about needs personal details of the people she is living with for security clearance. I presume she needs to ask the others herself rather than me passing on the information. i.e.

    Full name
    Town of Birth
    Present & previous Nationality/citizenship

    Can someone advise please?

    Sounds like security services or Police: Or maybe delusional looney

    Unless you have other occupants permission to pass such info yes, she needs to ask them: They don;t have to disclose such info.

    As a landlord I would stay well clear ...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      A worrying thought has occurred to me tonight. If furlough ends on 30th April, as I believe it's meant to, are we going to find loads more tenants unable to pay their rent?

      I know one of mine is a taxi driver, and I'm amazed he's managed to come up with the rent so far.

      Okay, but presumably this can't go on forever? At some point, businesses will have to acknowledge that they are bankrupt, and sack all their employees. They will then be on housing benefit, which is only about 75% of market rent....

      It will be extended again under pressure.

      I would rather attempt to predict next weeks lottery numbers........ but as a best guess you could be right, i suspect that by Easter the lockdown will be eased and the vaccine would have been rolled out enough to lower the cases in hospital.

      I can see how the above would have occurred but in the OP's case the father in law knew exactly what he wanted to avoid and i can only assume he instructed his solicitor at the time of his wishes, whom then should have drafted the deed with that in mind, it should be air tight on that point.

      Hi my husband was given a property as a deed of gift after his mother passed away in 1991 from his father. My husband put in place through the solicitor that his father could live rent free in the property but had to pay bills and any repairs or updating. His father married later the same year. The...

      Thanks for all the replies.
      I was asking because my son's just rented a flat (his first time apart from furnished student accommodation) which was advertised as furnished.
      It has a bed in the bedroom
      Sofa and TV unit in the LR
      Integral F/F and oven /hob and washing machine in...

      New member here. As I believe there's no legal definition of "furnished", would people offer their opinions as to what they consider the minimum items for a furnished letting? Is there a doifference between "furnished" and "fully furnished"?
      If it makes...

      I've had a very similar situation, having purchased quite cheaply a flat in a Marylebone mansion block for which the occupier had been granted a life tenancy at a nominal rent (far lower than the service charges) and a lump sum in consideration of him giving up the tenancy of a top floor flat which...
