End Tenant

  • This is a tenant not directly connected to the landlord.
  • A superior tenant, subletting to a sub-let tenant (inferior tenant) if at the end of a chain of sublets is the end tenant.
  • The danger to the landlord arises when the link between the end tenant and the landlord becomes too tenuous.
  • Mortgage lender conditions may be breached, resulting in the creation of prohibited tenancies creating difficulty in repossessing in the event of arrears.
  • Insurers risks may increase when letting to certain tenant genres.  It is likely to be a material fact, that the landlord may have no control of a tenancy, if there is no direct relationship with the end tenant.
  • Sea also Let to let and head leasing and disclosure.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
