Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I have a well funded ME student arriving on the 27th September and wants occupancy ON the 30th. He receives his funding on the last day of each month which might be the 31st.
He wants to pay the rent regularly on the 1st, if the rent is payable the day before each monthly date that gives an AST due date of the 2nd.
He will be paying the first month in advance, but I am trying to find a mechanism for the first two days, I was going to just raise a second AST which gives him the statutory right of occupation for six months, but that’s irrelevant as the main AST is for 12, the RLA didn’t like that, but not for any clear reason other than “causing problems”.
I can’t see that the first month’s rent can be increased even if the period is longer by two days under the Tenant Fee Ban rules, or can it?
