I am buying an occupied block of flats. Apart from registration which it does NOT require what steps should I take regarding the ASTs. (I am familiar with the HSRS and HMO Management Regs) The problem relates not only to most tenants are on Housing Benefit or LHA but what should I do about deposits and the existing inventories? I am particularly concerned to ensure a smooth transition for the tenants so that their benefit stream does not dry up due to the change over. Help please?
