Renting out house


[link to this post]
 
Not sure if there is a right or wrong answer here but I am soon going to rent out my house. I currently have o2 which I've had for about 18 months on a rolling monthly contract. Broadband is quick and reliable. I was wondering if it is worthwhile and possible to 'hand over' the broadband to my tenants for a year ( assuming they'd want it).

The only way is to stick it in the rental agreement and charge them for it yourself. What about the phone rental?

Um I don't think I've thought this through at all well. I guess I would also have to do the same with the phone and pass on my number to them. Not sure I want to do this. also I suppose I would then be liable for any problems with broadband service etc.

I was trying to make things easier for them, but perhaps it's best to terminate all the utility type services and let them sort them out for themselves.

Unlikely ISP will talk to tenants if they ring up with problems.

If you are renting out your property i would defantly cancel your utilities and let the tenants sought out what they want. Fron our own experience its a lot less hassle. We tried this a few years ago and had nothing but hassle. One example was when a tennant had a [censored] laptop with viruses. He kept calling us saying the fault was with the isp. ISP BB engineer comes to site finds no problems and we got a bill. Eventually i went around with my laptop and could not see any problems. Then i look at the tenants laptop and he had porn pop ups etc. Then he argued that he had symantec AV.
Any how never again - to much hassle.
