Tenants separating – what to do?Make Text Bigger
I have a tenant who has just separated from her partner, he has moved out and she would like to continue with the tenancy which she can afford to top up.
She tells me that housing are already paying some of her rent.
My questions are,
1) do I issue a new tenancy agreement to the now single tenant.
2) what do I do about the deposit, does it remain protected until her tenancy ends.
3) does her partner have a claim on this.
4)Anything else i need to be aware of before agreeing to let her stay. I usually only let to working families but realise that unemployment is just around the corner for some and that situations change.
Any advice welcome
Thanks in advance
