I'd like to go back and work abroad and rent out my house here but with one or two conditions. I'd like to rent it to a private tenant of my choice, in fact a girl at my current workplace would be ideal. It would be somebody I know, she would care for the place, tend the garden and I could trust her. In fact I have discussed it with her and she is keen. We agreed a little deal in principle, she gets the house at sub-market rent price, the whole place to herself and a boyfriend should she get one, but no subletting of rooms and she leaves the main bedroom free. That room is for me, probably around 2-3 times a year when I need to come home for a week or so. It also means i have a place to store my stuff.
Does anyone know what sort of legal agreement i would need to knock up with her? Also, presumably I have to have everything all certificated, safe boiler, electrical safety etc. or is there anyway to come to a friends agreement? Obviously at some point i would want her to go should I need to come back ( or maybe she would want to go anyway). I was hoping to do her a favour and me too, she gets a good price, I get a trusted tenant and a room when I am back over here. Any ideas?
