During the Tenancy

I want to add a person to my tenancy. What do I do?

A tenancy agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord so the process of moving a new person into a property is a bit more involved if they too wish to become part of that contract. For a new person to be included in the tenancy agreement, reference checks must be carried out and paid for to ensure there are no issues. Once these checks have been completed, then a new contract can be drawn up to include the other person. 

Can I change the date I pay my rent?

This is possible through something called 'apportioning the rent', and it works like this. If the rent was £650 a month, due on the 13th of the month, and you wanted it changing to the 23rd of each month, the difference of this would be 9 days. The calculation would be: (£650.00 x 12 / 365)*9. This calculates the daily rent (because there are different number of days in different months) and times it by the number of days required.
