  • Legal FAQs

    Am I liable to pay rent?

    A little background info: I am living in my late Father's property. I'm living here as a result of caring for him until he passed away in December 2017 and I haven't moved back to my own home as it is tenanted out.

    In his will he left a third each of the property to my two brothers and a third to me.

    I suspect that my Brothers want me to pay rent so was wondering what is the legal position on doing this if I have no contract (AST) or EPC.

    Is it possible to rent out a property without the formal paperwork in place?

    It can be beneficial to have paperwork in place but likewise sometimes beneficial not to

    Yes you can rent it. But regardless of whether you pay them rent or not they are entitled to demand a fee from you for your living in a property they own a share of. If you want to formalise this arrangement a standard AST with all of you named as landlords and you alone as a tenant would be fine
