Open ended tenancies and on the hook for start dates?Make Text Bigger
As Scotland is leading the way in bringing more uncertainty to an uncertain future for the PRS I am faced with a puzzling question. I am currently advertising a vacant property, but notes of interest are coming from prospective tenants looking to secure a property in September 2019.
Basis I cannot assure a future tenancy as once the property is tenanted in the near future I would have to await until current (new) tenants have elected to leave and that could be any time if at all.
This got me thinking – can I sign up for a start date with the qualification ” subject to conditions being met” such as the current tenants having left ?
Another related question would be – what happens if you sign up a lease for a future, date but the property is not available as occupying tenant has not left? Are you on the hook for the new contract?
