Question

Implied Terms in Tenancy Agreements (Wales) | Tenancy Agreements (Wales)

6 Months rent Prepaid

10 Jun 2020 | 1 comment

I have a proposed tenant who is offering to pay 6 months rent in advance.  What are the (if any) concerns about the AST and does it need to be re-drafted.

    There’s no problem with this as long as the tenancy makes it a requirement to pay 6 months in advance (e.g. first full payment of rent £5,000 and thereafter £416.66). That way, the advanced rent cannot be deemed a deposit or anything else.

    Our Tenancy Builder has this functionality built in – just select the appropriate “rent type”.
