Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this
Why is the new letting agent insist a new contract is signed please?
I don't know why exactly. Another of my tenants wants to leave (in fact has moved out). The new letting agent was to add the proposed new tenant to the original tenancy (as had happened before when there was a change of tenancy) but instead the new letting agent insist I will be better protected if I sign a new tenancy agreement with his firm. I am not in agreement but he is bullying me to sign. I do not believe it is right that the new contract will supersede the original but do not know how to say this to him in legal terms.
Sorry should have said he was to add the new tenant to the original with another memorandum
Oh I see. In that case I would agree with the agents that a new tenancy agreement needs to be signed.
The tenancy agreement should reflect who is actually staying there.
In that case you do not need to worry. The new agreement will be valid and simply reflect changes made,

Could i ask another question
Is it on the same topic?
What happens to the original tenancy agreed if the one tenant left on the contract is now on the new contract and wants to renew her tenancy - who's renewal charges do i pay the original letting agent or the new agent
agreed should read agreement
You need to check the terms of any contract between you and the first agent.
Really what you do is terminate the agreement, have the tenants 'move out' for 1 night then move in the following day
Then technically its a new tenancy
If the old one is being renewed in effect then you are liable probably for the existing agent fees
Can I clarify anything else for you/
no you have been very helpful
Happy to help. please remember to rate before you go
