Does your daughter mind remaining on the tenancy agreement which means that she will remain liable for the rent along with you although obviously you would be paying it?
Why do you think the landlord would put the rent up?
Is the rent already correct for the property of its type in that area?
Thank you. There is no legal reason why you have to remove your daughter from the tenancy and there is no legal reason why she cannot have her name on 2 tendencies. After all, she could be planning to come back at any time.
If the landlord thinks that he could use this to get more rent from you, he will either have to give you notice to quit which needs to be at least 2 months and you would have to negotiate a new market rent with him.
Although, if he tried to impose an unfair rent on you, (which he could do regardless) you can take him to the rent tribunal, the reality is that it’s of no effect because if he doesn’t like the rent set by the tribunal, he would simply give you notice to quit.
It is not so much a legal problem as practical problem if the landlord takes exception to this.
Can I clarify anything for you?
