We are considering an International Student who has viewed the room to rent via Whatsapp and has chatted to me about the rental. She would like to take the room, but will not be in the UK until mid-September.
We have agreed to commence a 12-month tenancy from 1 September and will email the contract to her, and she will also send the relevant proof re ID, Visa and University course.
We would like to ask for the 1st month’s rent in advance now and on arrival she would pay for the following 5 months. The Contract will state that the rent is for 6 months in advance (1st payment now and the other 5 months when keys are issued) and the payment for the second 6 months in advance will be due on 1 January 2021. (giving us 2 months notice in the unlikely event that the rent is not paid?)
There will be no deposit taken for the rental.
Is this the best way to proceed?
It ensures that we have a signed contract online (which will be resigned on paper when she receives the keys and the further 5 months rent paid on that day). It will also give the student reassurance that she has the room booked ok.
Thanks for your assistance.
