I am a first time landlord and a member of the NLA. On theNLA website I created a 12 month fixed AST, they sent me the wording for a 6 month break clause and I ticked the guarantor option so their is a space for the guarantor to sign on the AST. The NLA also sent me a "letter of guarantee" template of to send to the guarantor. The tenant advised that his father who is the guarantor will not be able to travel to me to sign the letter of guarantee and AST. I also read on the internet that the guarantor has to be given good notice to sign the guarantee, is this correct and how much notice should be given to the guarantor? Is it best for the guarantor to be physically present and for me to see them when completing the above?. Also I would like the AST double checked by you to confirm I have done everything correct as the NLA do not do this. I am also unable to upload files on your website. I clicked the paper clip icon and nothing happens. Thank you in advance.
Please can you call me on XXXXXXXXXXX
Apologies, I was not aware of this.
I would like to send you the AST and guarantor forms to check but cannot send them via this website. How can I send these to you?
When I send the guarantor the guarantor letter, do I need to send a copy of the AST as well?
Does the guarantor need to sign the AST prior to the tenants also?
Sorry about this, as a first time landlord I want to ensure that I am following the correct procedure and make things water tight.
I have completed the AST and it has all of my contact details.
Is this information just be viewable by you, as I do not wish to have other members of this site viewing my thread?
Also when I send the guarantor the guarantor letter, do I need to send a copy of the AST as well?
