Hi Adrian, I have a few questions in relation to a new AST I am currently preparing. It will be for a fixed term of six months with the possibility to extend at the end of the term.
There will be four Tenants in total, one of whom is 15 years old. He does not own a passport. Whilst there is a list of alternative documents for confirming Right to Rent, these mostly apply to adults. How can I confirm the right to rent of a minor without a passport?
One of the adult Tenants has a U K passport that expired in 2002 and she has not renewed – is an expired passport acceptable evidence?
One of the Tenants (Tenant A) will reside only for the first six months and leave at the end of the term with the probability of the other three remaining; is it necessary for Tenant A to be an official Tenant or could she be a lodger for the simplicity of the Agreement. If the answer is that she must be an official Tenant, does it require a new AST to be set up for the remaining three, or could it become Periodic with one Tenant having vacated?
