    I think they would be lodgers.

    Offering a 'service' such as cleaning confirms their status, and the fact you live under the same roof.

    Make sure that you use a decent lodger agreement though...

    It will still be an AST, albeit the agreement was not signed. Issue the S21 and follow normal procedure, you do not have to give a reason, a S21 is a 'no fault' notice. You will need exact dates to...

    You serve a S21(1)(b), it does not matter that the two month period will fall into the statutory tenancy period.

    If only! More than two months rent as a deposit...

    If only! More than two months rent as a deposit is seen as a premium, not a lot of good when you have a bad tenant that pays nothing for six months or more.

    You could..........However the guarantor would need to be even more stringently checked than the tenant.

    Have a look at what 'lawcruncher' has said about about guarantors and consideration in past...

    You seem to have it right, only one succession can happen for a regulated tenancy, it then becomes assured if that tenant dies and you can raise the rent, being careful to follow the law at all times.

    That depends on how much protection YOU want. I have a BG 400 policy as well so that covers me for most other things
  9. If I wanted to rent a property in a foreign...

    If I wanted to rent a property in a foreign country then I would expect to pay at least a year in advance, I would not consider it to be 'racism' but a sensible precaution on the part of the landlord.

    It does look as if you tenant is taking advantage of the break clause, fair enough, although I never see the point of break clauses myself. They leave the landlord uncertain of when the tenancy could...

    It depends on when the end of the tenancy period is, a notice from a tenant would normally have to end on the last day of a period.

    However it may be better to be graceful and accept the revised...

    There is nothing wrong with Simple Landlord insurance. (In my opinion) I've used them for years.

    When one of my properties was vacant, we camped out there while refurbishing it. We took advantage of every insulation deal we could for free while we were there.

    The result was a much warmer flat...

    Did you ever transfer the deposit to the girl friend's name?

    If it's still in the name of the deceased I think, that if it were me, i would make a single claim for it and see what happens.

    I've...

    IG's response is perfectly sensible and it's not even a breach of the TA. The lodger would have no rights over the tenancy and would have to leave when asked. As long as the rent is being paid on...

    blue88,

    Since the law is involved then you are completely wrong.

    The fact there is a child involved is neither here nor there. It's not the child's fault there is a problem, equally the...

    I don't charge my tenants for their credit checks, the check is for my benefit therefore I swallow the smallish cost.

    How they divide that among themselves would not be your problem, but it means you...

    Yes you can use bailiffs to regain control of your property, be aware that it's not very cheap but it is the only way to do it properly.

    There may be a problem because there is no signed lease,...

    If you're a new lawyer then you don't need advice from us about how to write a LBA, and to follow it through if you have to.

    The least they should do is refund any rent you have paid since the new...

    My 2 cents.

    4 weeks notice is far too long, she's told you she is NOT going to pay rent, an immediate order to leave is well within your rights. change the locks first chance you get. If she calls...

    It's their contents policy, that's what it's for. Any excess applied to it must have been agreed at the time they took out the policy. Not the landlord's problem.

    I do wonder what %age of tenants...
