My friend purchased a property with tenants already there. When they went round to inspect the property, they found that there wasn`t an AST in place.They sent an agent round to get a valuation on the market rent which is currently 575mth, the agent said it should be 695 but considering the condition of the property 650mth. She informed the tenant of the due rent increase and asked him to sign an AST.He has refused asking for repairs (replace leaking shower,Gas saftey cert,fix/replace garage door)to be carried out before agreeing increase in rent. I have advised my friend that she should have a gas saftey cert regardless!! but she refuses to get anything done until AST is signed. Who is in the right here? What could happen if tenant reports her to CORGI regarding gas cert. My advice to her was limited, can anyone point her in the right legal direction. Thanks
