Tenant wishes to pay lump sum to cover rent
I have a prospective tenant from the USA who wishes to rent my property for a minimum of 6 months. They have recently moved from the USA and therefore their referencing/credit worthiness has been difficult to obtain via the referencing agency and the tenant claims their partner is still living in the USA and has a large income.
I believe the prospective tenant is telling the truth however where do I stand on taking a lump sum to cover rent? I will be taking the 5 weeks deposit and will register it with deposit guard outside of the lump sum.
How do I modify the contract to comply with the lump sum if I choose to go ahead with this tenant?
