    how easy is it to get a landlord to change the date on their contract?

    we are going to have to get a new student house
    the current contract ends in august

    the house we want will have a contract that starts in august
    this will require us to pay the last months rent, and a deposit for the new house in the same month (august)
    my friends dont have the money to do these payments all in one month

    how likely is it that i will be able to negotiate with the landlord to put the contract forward to september, from august, and the deposit for september aswell?
    they will stll get their 12 months worth of money

    You can ask.
    If there are other people interested in the property it might be an issue.
    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).

      From you maybe; but they'll miss a month's-worth of rent money from what you say. Unless there's no other demand for the property it seems pretty unlikely that the landlord would go for that; but as jpkeates says, you can always ask.

      God knows why universities and landlords in student towns can't manage to coordinate a standard start date!

        What about getting them to surrender existing tenancy and then signing a new one? Would that work?...

        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 ?...

        by asez
        Hello,

        I'm trying to end my tenancy early due to a relationship breakdown with my housemate, hostility, bullying and my items going missing. There's currently four of us on the agreement which I'm trying to leave. I haven't lived there, apart from around 15 days(when the housemate was away)...

        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...

        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...

        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 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....
