If the property turns out to be an unlicensed HMO, it may be overcrowded. Additionally, there may be fire or gas safety issues. The landlord may still be held accountable in these cases.

What to Look Out For in Rent-to-Rent Contracts: Ensuring Your Landlord Obligations Are Met.

Landlords and rent-to-rent operators must be savvy when entering into agreements, ensuring they are using the correct type of contract for their situation. To ensure that a subletting arrangement is properly established between both parties, it's important to use a commercial lease document.

Estate agents and property management companies can be vulnerable to legal risks if they incorrectly enter into an AST with a landlord instead of establishing the necessary conditions for their commercial arrangement. If this happens, it's essential that landlords are aware of crucial clauses they may have missed due to the narrow scope of tenancy agreements. Protecting both parties from potential liabilities down the line.

Entering into a lease should always be taken seriously. Make sure you understand your obligations fully before making this important commitment! Before signing, take time to carefully read the agreement and keep an eye out for key points.
