Hi I hope you guys can help.

I am looking to move away from my job to purchase a property in a cheaper part of the country so that I can look after my aged parents.  However, rather than change job I would prefer get a Mon-Thur let near my current job. I have to friends who rent a 3 bed house together who have offered to let me stay there.

My question is this –  presuming the tenants got permission from their landlord to sub-let the 3rd bedroom, would I need to be in a legally binding agreement with my friends? Doing so would restrict the amount of mortgage I could recieve as I would have a legally binding financial commitment, so would like to avoid it if possible.

Thanks for any advice you can give

You’re asking if you can simply NOT sign any sub-letting agreement and just give them the money straight. If the landlord agrees, you probably can, but if hte landlord requires you to sign a sub-letting agreement, then you have no way around it.
