I am currently living in Indonesia.
What is AST?
The letting agents have told me that any legal dispute is between myself and the tenant. They manage rent collection, periodic house checks and any maintenance work.
The letting agent is aware the I am living overseas. I also have another property, in the UK, which is let.
I have no immediate plan to return to the UK.
I have, subsequently, spoken with the letting, who say that approximately 30% of their client landlords are working overseas and letting properties on AST's and they are not aware of any lae that says the landlord should be living in the UK. However, they will check with their soliciter. Assuming it's OK, can you advise on legal procedure i should persue.
The tenancy started in december, it was for 12 months. The first 2 months rent were paid, then the couple split up and now they are refusing to pay. The male partner has left the property, the female partner, and the 2 children are still at the property and refuse to leave.
OK, thanks, ***** ***** proceed as advised. Should i need further advice, I will contact you.
