I'm going to ask my old tenants of 6 years to sign a new tenancy agreement when "all this is over"..

I won't be charging more rent but need to add on any arrears we collect along the way with this Coronavirus debacle...

What forms, copies of EPC's gas safes and what have you's will I need to issue a new contract..and is it still a minimum of 6 months for effective legislation..?

I will not be asking for a deposit..?

What have I missed..there's always something..

I'm reading this... and wondering why.

You don't put details of rent arrears into an AST... and you wouldn't do it solely just to increase rent, which you aren't doing anyway... so what is the purpose of your action? It's not clear what you're trying to achieve. In fact, it seems like you're creating a whole load of work for yourself unnecessarily... or is it to try to and cover up some things you might be worried you've not done correctly previously?

Is the boredom getting to you,hence this plan? You could see your face in my kettle,and I have rearranged my clothes into outfits. A friend is making lists of favourite chocolate bars from the past,and asking others to rate them.(Mine are Tiffin bar,Cadbury's Stawberry Cream,and Caramel Cup)

I want a kettle with Hippogriff's face on it too now.

And a Cadbury's Spira.

Is there a range of Hippogriff merchandise,a cuddly toy perhaps? Is it available on Amazon?

Everything is available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Papo-36022-36022-Hippogriff-Multicolour/dp/B07N3TJ7P2/

"Hippogriff Kettle" doesn't produce any results, but I like to think it buggers up their algorithms. :-)

As Lisa North said in her review of this item... "It is a very good hippogriff."

Lisa is a verified purchaser.

Shelly, on the other hand, did give the impression of being hard to please, reviewing said item with... "As described" but not really indicating her pleasure or displeasure. Possibly some buyer's remorse here.

Are these reviews from Amazon or Tinder?

I'm changing the tenancy to allow another landlord on the AST as well as myself, for extremely personal reasons it seems like the way to prepare for the future and for the benefit of my kids.. we're at the early stages of a fairly catastrophic upheaval and, while I love my current tenants with all my heart, I want to prepare a more watertight association in the event of things going badly for me.. The arrears will form part of a recovery period AST followed by a re-issue of one more closely associated with the current one, but with additional parties on my side..

You can be a little sanctimonious when you try Hip'.. I'm sure you're a lovely person to have at a party though..

Anyway.. as I was asking..

Any advice is very welcome..

Closet accusations of incompetence not so much.

Could you not make this simpler? I think changes like this - an amendment to an existing tenancy agreement - can be done via agreement (which would be the case with a new AST anyway - you can't enforce a new one on the Tenants - or they're not obliged to accept it) and you get it done in writing, signed... I think that should be better for you. Maybe something like Section 3 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985?

Others may guide you more effectively.

I suppose either way would be effective. There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say...
