Hello there,

my name is Riccardo and I am a new member of the forum.

I would like to rent a flat with 3 or 4 bedrooms and to share it with

subtenants. I have no idea about the law about the subletting and

if there are some taxes or something I should pay.

An help is wellcome. :)

Thank you.

As you are not yet familiar with the law governing Landlord and Tenant matters, in England & Wales, take great care. A joint tenancy might suit your needs better that having a sole tenancy for the whole and then needing L's consent to sublet parts.

Thank you very much for helping me.

Exept this, where can I find the information I need to do it on my own?

I know a few people who are doing it and, apparenly, everything is

going smoth... If I rent a flat, and the landlord allows me to to rent the

rooms to other people? wich kind of problems can I get?

I would like to know the sources of those informations.

Thanks again!c :)

What kind of problems? See the thousands of RES. LETTINGS threads! Then you'll know what you're letting yourself in for.

What does REST. LETTING mean?

I am ignorant about this subject, but as long as I get the money on time for

the rent should be fine... what am I missing?

RES. Lettings, it said in my post #4 (not 'Rest.')- i.e. the Residential Letting Questions forum where you are reading this reply.

Well, the number of troubles I can find is definetly impressive,

but this was predictable. It doesn't seem to be so bad..

I think the first step is the biggest, filling up the flat and not loose money.

I would love to hear experiences of people who have done it or are still

sub letting a flat, because there's not much about this specific issue

in the forum.

Thanks. :)

I agree, don't fill up your flat with loose money. You never know where it's been, apart from anything else :)

Why not loose money? The change will do him good.
