    Tenant's father will be paying rent- what steps to take?

    I saw a potential tenant today. Although he is a fully grown adult (40yrs old) his father (who came with him him to the viewing) is going to pay the 6 month rental. The tenant is going through marriage breakup and I guess this is the father's way of supporting him! So, regarding utilising TenantVERIFY, if it is the father who is paying the rent, I guess it is he who is credit checked? Is there anything I need to do regarding the tenant? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    1. As the son himself is going to be T, he will be liable for rent.
    2. Check financial status of both.
    3. Get T's father to execute a Deed of Guarantee.

    1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
    2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
    3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.
