I have 2 existing tenants on an AST let in one of my properties. The tenancy runs on a 12 month contract basis and is due to end on February 6th 2015.
The present tenants are currently 6 weeks behind in their rent and have written to me explaining some temporary money difficulties. However, they have also said they have a friend who would like to move to live with them and subject to references etc the target date would be September 21st.
Now just putting the complications of rent arrears aside for as moment, where do I stand and should I agree for an additional tenancy, BUT with only less then 5 months remaining for the original tenancy. That would of course include the added (new) tenancy.
Are there any key issues and/or legal factos that I must look out for in such situations? For example, can any new and added tenant say ‘you can’t ask me to leave only after 5 months into a tenancy agreement.
For the record, it is most likely that I will be issuing a section 21 (if not section 8 depending..) as per normal in early December, 2 months before the expiry of the 12 month agreement.
My concern here is the new tenant that I might take on next month.
