    Tenancy agreement allowing tenant to sublet rooms to lodgers ...

    I have a 3-bedroom apartment and come across a really good fella that would like to rent the entire apartment, and then sublet two of the rooms to lodgers - I understand this would make him a mesne landlord.

    I am happy with this arrangement, but would like some guidance on drafting an appropriate contract that clearly states that:
    a) He can only sublet the rooms to lodgers with him as a resident landlord
    b) He cannot sublet the entire property
    c) He can only take on one single individual in each room (i.e. no couples or multiple people allowed to occupy one room)
    d) If he leaves, then the lodgers must also leave and their contracts become invalid

    Any of you have an idea of what sort of agreement / contract I should use?

    reply to: theartfullodger - the question relates to the agent's commission - the contracts are for one year or more and whether the agent should charge commission of a tenant stays longer than a year

    reply to Andrew Dodd - I think you've misunderstood. As I mentioned the house has been let since 2006 - the agent finds the tenants and secures the rental amount, draws up the contract - it's a successful operation. My query related to the period the agent wants to charge commission on. That's what...

    I use an estate agent on a tenant find basis with no management but always interview each of the prospective tenants who pass the tests, i pay 1 months rent as their fee and that is it, if the tenancy lasts 1 year or 10 years i pay that one fee and that is it. Anything else i would not accept.

    So either do it yourself, no agent, or specify 6 months then rolling periodic.

    Can I ask advice on this matter. I've had a property in London since 2006 which is rented. Whichever estate agent I use, they all want to charge a letting fee (let only not managed) on the whole term. Tenants often sign for more than a year and the estate agent is keen to charge a commission for each...

    Why exactly do you want to use an agent for a Let only non-managed?

    The most critical bit of the process which you should be doing yourself (even for fully managed) you are devolving to others. Will end badly....

    for a s21 to be valid i need to give the tenant the gas certifcate, epc, eicr and the 'how to rent' guide before occupation

    Being a DSS tenant and not having access to their details prior to occupation, I emailed these documents to the council weeks before the tenant took occupancy at the...
