I apologise for the delay in getting back to you. We all have clients in travelling and other users and although sometimes we may respond in minutes, other times it is going to be longer which is unavoidable and for which we apologise.
The payment of rent by a third party doesn’t give the third party any rights if that’s what you are talking about, provided the third party doesn’t live in the property. Even then, it’s going to be a struggle for them to prove any rights over the property.
If the document needs witnessing, anybody can witness it, it doesn’t have to be done by a solicitor who will charge for it.
In this case, the payment of the rent by the mother would not concern me provided she doesn’t live in the property. That comes down to evidence.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
