Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
In the agreement does it say this person will refurbish please?
Ok, then you can rent it on an AST. But if the agreement does not state they will refurbish the property then they do not have to.
If you want them to do this, you should include it.
But an AST is fine.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes, because it would be a term that would be agreed.
But you need to make it obvious and draw the attention of the tenant to it.
Does that clarify?
This is a question and answer site, no professional relationship exists between you and the site, as per the terms and conditions.
If you are in any doubt you should seek independent legal advice.
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
