View Full Version : Addendum for AST for a name change?

13-10-2011, 11:43 AM
Hi guys,

My tenants have recently got married, and wish to change the details on their tenancy to say their married name instead of their separate names.

Does anyone use or have a decent addendum that they use for situations like this? I think it'd be easier than trying to get them to resign a whole tenancy agreement.

Thanks :-)

There is no need to alter anything, it will still be valid. I suggest you leave well alone.

As Paul_f says, there's absolutely no need to change any details. The marriage doesn't affect the tenancy contract at all. They are still the same people/tenants.

If the tenants are absolutely adamant that they want to amend the name details, tell them you are willing if they pay - in advance - for your solicitor to draft the documentation.
