    I expect I won't be the first in this situation.

    Couple on SPT been in over 2 years. Decent, reliable rent paying young professionals. One who works in high end hospitality has been laid off indefinitely and is asking for rent reduction during this strange situation. Tenant is to apply...

    As above, but changed to
    If your tenant now does not want to move in you Must allow them to surrender the tenancy before they move in and both walk away. They are happy as they can't afford it. You are happy that you not be in the situation that they never pay any rent after the first month. (

  • First time landlord - one tenant made redundant
    by tblyth13
    Hi,

    We are first time landlords letting out our property as we have moved overseas. We have appointed a letting agent to fully manage the property.

    Tenants have been found, reference checks complete and the tenancy agreement is signed. They were due to move in next week but...

  • Reply to Landlord in Distress
    by AndrewDod
    Um... I did this for my day job. And I am fairly mathematically astute to say the least. There are many particularly bad years that take it way above the 20K figure - in fact this is routine, and many say under-counted. So no, maybe you should actually read the reports before throwing out trite blather....

  • Reply to Advice on new tenancy
    by jpkeates
    You can ask for the rent to be paid in advance, but it has to be the rent, not an extra deposit.
    So you can't ask for six months payment and then demand a rent payment in month 2.

    Theoretically the five month's deposit paid in advance meets the definition of a tenancy deposit, but...

  • Advice on new tenancy
    by AnnaJJJ
    I am just about to rent a flat to a family. The tenants have paid a holding deposit but we've not yet signed contracts. After paying the holding deposit the tenants have now advised that they may be laid off with the 80% furlough agreement. There is only one salary in the family. They've approached...

  • Reply to My Lodger is not Leaving - Please help with legal advice.
    by leaseholder64
    As noted, issuing section 8 undermines your argument that this is not an AST.

    I think this is test case material, but it seems to me that it violates the assumptions on the nature of lodgers, so this is more about whether or not the mother is an excluded landlord.
