it is a joint tenancy taken out by 4 ex students who all have guarantors and initial lease is for 6 months which started on 1st Sept 2014. all but 1 have paid their rents on time each month
no I don't think so but how would we find out?
I have found a scan of it and yes it is
hi yes it is an assured shorthold tenancy
From 1/9/2014 with a 6 month break clause
the landlord has accepted all their written notices to end the tenancy on Feb 28th 2015. is there no way I can ask the landlord to change the tenancy over to me from the tenant who has not paid and also hence demand the keys back from this person as I will now be paying the rent it seems until Feb 28th? regarding this person;s violent behaviour what do you suggest? should I advise my daughter to ring the police each time he behaves this way or should I suggest she takes out an injuction against him which includes not coming near the property? Will I have to wait until after Feb 28th to pursue him for the debt? many thanks
I have decided not to pay for this tenants arrears or future rent. When the landlord eventually gets around to writing to me to demand the arrears for him and the rent due up to Feb 28th am I right in understanding that UK law states that I will be the one being pursued and the other tenants deposits will be safe and only the defaulter tenant will loose there's? Each of the 4 tenants have a different named guarantor and will continue to pay their rent on time up to the vacancy date of Feb 28th
I also understand the landlord will have to wait until this tenant is 3 months in arrears before she can act as he is claiming housing benefit but has not been passing this on to the landlord this may also complicate matters?
no she and the other 2 tenants all work and we as individual parents provide the money for their rent every month
