Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You dont need her as a joint tenant.
Either will do
If there is any disagreement she clearly has a right to be there as you are a family
So in reality it does not really make any different.
You can ask for her to be put on the tenancy if you wish
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks. My concern is her legal position if I were to pass away during the tenancy?
Hi...Mr Watts...can i have a reply?
If its an AST then its only valid for the initial period of 6 months or 12 months
Then it forms a monthly rolling contract.
But if you are worried about passing then you can have them as a joint tenant
it is a 24 month contract
with a two months break clause after 1 year
Have you signed it already?
it is only her safeguard that is a concern as a permitted occupier
no about to
Ok, then if you are worried then ask that she is a joint tenant
lol... that is not the question! What are her legal rights as a owner occupier v a joint tenant pls?
sorry permitted occupier
Owner occupier means it would generally just pass to the surviving occupier.
Joint tenant, they are equally named
But as an owner occupier they also have a direct interest in the property
Permitted, is like a guest, so less rights than named on the tenant
