    Replacement tenant on AST

    Hello there.

    I am 2 months into a 6 month AST with 4 tenants (friends) names on the contract. One of them has to go back to Portugal for personal reasons and the other three can not afford to pay the rent on their own.

    If they find a replacement do I have to reissue contract and reregister the deposit or can I just amend one/both?

    thank you.

    In my opinion (others may disagree...) do nothing, other than verbally agree to a lodger.


    Currently you have 4 people EACH of whom is liable to  pay ALL the rent: And in 4  months you can evict with s21 if there are problems.  And yes you can collect debts from Portugal.


    Alternatively you can fiddle around with the paperwork, likely miss something so an s21 won't be valid, anyway then 6 months to s21 eviction.


    If after - say - 9 or 12 months everything fine consider offering new AST to 4 people you are then confident in.

    Do you mean that the remaining 3 take in a lodger and pay them direct?
