    leaving student house at end of tenancy, what happens if i cant find a replacement?

    student house is for 2nd and 3rd year of uni
    i wont be able to live out for the 3rd year because i dont have enough money
    although the contract can be renewed at the end of the 2nd year, what happens if i cant find a person to replace me? they can choose to find a new house, but this could be troublesome as we would have to find one where the tenancy starts a month later than the contract we previously had (otherwise they will have to pay a deposit for the new house AND rent for the current house in the same month, causing them to pay the equivalent of 2 months rent in one month)

    i would feel awful if my friends lost the house because of me

    Is the tenancy agreement a joint agreement with all of you, or are the agreements individual?
    Does the agreement say that a replacement is possible, and if so, does it say how?
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      its a joint tenancy

      you are allowed get a replacement if you want to leave during the tenancy, but im going to leave once the tenancy for the first year is over

      if we cant find a replacement, then we will lose the house which im worried for my friends

        Has the Landlord said they will definitely lose it? I'm a landlord of a student house and although I started with 4 people who moved in together and rented the whole property, I have had to replace ones and twos at the end of each year. I encourage my students to find someone because they have to live with the person but they never do and I always have to take care of it myself. Check with the landlord. They may not want to lose the other students.

          im going to ask the landlord to try and find someone, but what if the landlord and I cant find a replacement in time?
          my friends will be either forced to may for my empty room (they cant afford that), or find another house which could prove troublesome

            I would suggest your current flatmates finally choose your replacement (acceptable to LL). They will have to live with him/her!

              It's almost impossible to reset the tenancy with a new agreement.
              The buyer will inherit the previous tenancy at the same point that they're able to let the property on the new agreement, so any new tenancy is going to be a follow on tenancy.
              So things that need to be done at the very start...

              I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
              Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

              You're really going to struggle with that not being a tenancy.
              If the tenant can lock the door to exclude you, and they could wash in a sink, that's likely to be a dwelling house.

              I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

              I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

              How basic is your understanding?

              From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....

              Unless it is REALLY cheap - don't!

              I inherited a property with a regulated tenant. The rent can only go up once every 2 years, by a specified amount, although more often if you improve the property, but it will always be cheap.

              Most tenants have been in a very long time and...

              Agree with above but if the property is in poor condition and the tenant elderly (or could be child of tenant who may be middle aged) then steer clear. I would definitely speak with the tenant.

              Emailing means the person may or may not receive it, and if they do, they may or may not reply. I didn't want to wait around to find out if I do get a reply. I wanted to get a phone number.
              In any case, I managed to get hold of the Landlord via the business. The ball is now in his court.
