I have a tenant who moved in on 31 Jan 2009 on a 6 months assured shorthold tenancy. She paid 6 months rent up front as she had no work and we have served her with a section 21 so that we can get possession on 31 July 2009. However, she would like to stay. She is now looking for work - she was recouperating from a broken leg before and I am trying to work out how to go about letting her stay. She has said she is willing to pay 2 months in advance as a 'deposit' but I realise we cannot hold a deposit like this. My obvious concern is that she will not be able to afford the rent. I did ask if she would pay 6 months up front again but she cannot. On what basis could she stay and how can I still protect myself from a tenant who may not be able to pay. Shoud I serve a section 21 every two months and ask for two months rent? Advice please.
