Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.

LondonlawyerJ :

Can you tell me a little more please. Why do you need a life time tenancy agreeement. Tenancy agreeements tend to be for fixed periods or be statutory rolling tenancies. It would be easy to grant a tenancy for a long period of time

Customer:

I have been on to the insurance company again. The underwriters insist on the agreement a) to indicate that I am responsible for paying bills like insurance b) to state that somebody else has a financial interest in the property.

Customer:

Sorry hit the wrong button! I cant argue with them. My son lives in the US has no credit rating and no duty to pay for the bills. I have seen on the internet that a 90 year tenancy agreement is a suitable substitute. I have also been advised that writing my own agreement in legal speak would be inadvisable. I would like to be directed to solicitors that deal with such agreements and can sort it out quickly for me.
