    You can charge them any rent that they agree to pay, otherwise, your only option to unilaterally increase the rent is a s13 notice.

    The s13 notice includes an appeals process, so you can't simply "evict" someone by charging a ludicrous rent....

    by leasee123
    Hi,

    I am a landlord and the current tenancy is coming close to the end of the AST fixed period. I am unsure what the process is when it comes to things like increasing rent and section 21 etc. I am using an agent for tenant find and they do the negotiating with the tenants (and of course...

    The flat's lease will likely prohibit lettings of more than a year (or class it as an assignment)

  • Granting a very long AST (to a family member)
    by meehr
    For a variety of reasons a family member is considering renting out their leasehold flat to a cousin for a long period of time - to provide security they want to grant a very long AST, like 8 years (till kids have left home basically). They both want to do this for security and avoidance of argument...

    But what happens if tenants don't leave (when it was originally agreed they would), can I charge them the higher rent? Because a section 13 would not have been served (given it was agreed they would leave at the end of the fixed term) would I still be allowed to charge them a higher rent?

    Tenants often don't have the tools to manage large foliage or dispose of it. If I could do it without too much effort I probably would or offer to arrange for it to be done & pass on the cost. It is definitely their responsibility.

    Received message from tenant saying the storm last week had caused the bush/tree at the front of the property to blow over and could I sort asap. I replied I didn't know there was a bush/tree at the front of the property and enclosed the inventory photograph of the front showing this. The tenant responded...

    by doobrey
    Agree with all the above.

    General advice is not to let to family or friends.

    If doing it, a long AST doesn't seem helpful to me. If both parties (as family members) trust each other implicitly then there should be no need for the contract. If they don't, then they should not...

    No one's at fault.
    That just complicates things and makes it harder to agree a resolution.
    There was a storm and it made things fall over.

    The question is, who's responsibility is fixing the problem? And it's the tenants'.

  • Reply to 5 Yr Residential tenancy agreement
    by jpkeates
    Notice from a landlord doesn't end the tenancy, so a long tenancy agreement with a break clause is loaded in favour of the tenant.

    The clause that Hooper has quoted would allow a tenant to end the agreement at any point after the first six months by giving two months notice ending at the...
