Hello, would be really gratefull for some legal advice on where we stand as landlord.
We took a couple on in September, she is French and they said that her firm would pay the rent as she has to split her time between UK and Fr. She never seemed to be there but it is her name on the AST not his. The first rent was late with the excuse that her firm were just taking time with the paperwork. He also said he would give us 100 for the garage for 6 months so we gave him the key but we have not had any money. We have just had a letter via the Letting Agt that got the tenant saying that the couple have split up and she has gone back to live in France and asked if he can keep the house. Our first thought was it does not matter who lives there as long as they pay the rent but then we start thinking about the web of lies they concocted to get him the house. As far as we know he doesnt work. His name is not on the AST so does that give him any rights or even make him a squatter? All advice greatfully received!!!
