Tenancy in one persons name only?

Reply to the comment left by Graham Bowcock at 29/03/2022 - 09:20I think the important issue everyone has forgotten here is the Right to Rent legislation. We need to know who is living in our properties and therefore I want everyone as either named tenants or permitted occupiers.
I make it quite clear that no-one is allowed to live in the property unless named. Partners staying over is allowed but not as residents. A simple check, they should be registered elsewhere for council tax.... Read More

"all tenants must give two months notice on my agreements"

You might like to look at this again. Under the Housing Act the Tenant can only be required to give One month notice (Ending at the end of a rent period so may be up to Two months less a day in practice) under an AST. Anything else you have written into your agreements has no validity in law.... Read More

Am I alone here in not thinking that the Tenant is being spiteful or selfish at all

Whilst it may be nice to get the property back early, you have to remember you are running a business and your customer has a contract with you. If you need him out early then the best thing to do is to agree an early termination. I do think it was foolhardy to agree a new Tenancy with a start date prior to the end of the previous one as this just sets you up for problems to occur.

Ask yourself this question: If the shoe was on the other foot and the Tenant with a fixed term contract wanted to leave early would you allow it? Or would you expect the Tenant to pay at least until you had a new Tenant ready to move in?... Read More
