    Well the point of J&S is that you can sue whichever one you want. I l know I have done it....

  • Foreign students - discrimination?
    by toys19
    I am LL, I have a group of students applying to move in, one of which is an EU national - the docs look as though they will pass right to rent checks, but I am asking (as I normally do) that non UK students pay the years rent up front.
    Potential group have said this is discrimination. I agree,...

    That's good to know.

    Purely for the avoidance of doubt, if there were four joint tenants, you wouldn't just sue three of them for any rent owed, you'd sue all four of them and only three of them would be affected by the outcome, so they'd be incentivised to settle....

    Thanks again for your consideration.



    I have considered this, and I don't see a problem with it. The UK tenants would still be responsible for the rent in the end, but I wouldn't have an issue with chasing the UK based ones (in the event that they didn't pay in the end) as...

    That would (in my view, and I am not in a position to give legal advice) absolutely be illegal discrimination.

    If the agreement is joint and several with all of the occupants, they are essentially all one tenant and all liable for all of the rent.
    So asking one person to pay a substantial...

    Hi jpkeates thanks for answering my question. The issue is I do not want to enter into an agreement with someone who I would find it difficult to chase through the courts- as their intention would be to return to their home country after Uni. I think there is a European small claims court, I cannot...

    If you are treating the EU national differently than the other students because they are an EU national, that sounds like discrimination to me and nationality is a protected characteristic.
    So, yes, it's illegal.

    If you are treating the person differently because they are unable to...

    As this is a group of tenants I presume you are taking one tenancy agreement which will usually include joint and several liability. This means that you require one rent payment of for example £1,200 from the tenants for the rent of the house and in the event of one tenant not paying their share the...

  • Broken Boiler Dispute
    by tenant12263748
    Hello. I have never written on here before so I apologise if I am wrong about anything, and also this is very long and I apologise for that. Myself and 6 other first year students live in a private house (the uni didn’t have enough on campus accommodation). About a week and a half ago, we noticed...

  • Reply to Broken Boiler Dispute
    by AndrewDod
    Somewhere there will be a control box telling the boiler what to do. Is the hot water set to continuous? I presume there is a hot water cylinder? How big is that? If nobody has a shower for say 2 or 3 hours, is the water hot and how long does it run in minutes (at a reasonable shower temperature) before...
