We get a rental allowance of £3K per month from our employers as part of a temporary relocation agreement due to last 3 years and have just signed up for a 12 month tenancy agreements with an agent (31K per year) so we have now tied up twelve months allowance. We have just sold our property putting us in a position to now purchase a brand new house ideally in the area that we are renting approx 850K. We do not want to rent out this house to anyone else. Q Is it legal to employ a rental agency to set up a new tenancy agreement that allows us to rent the new house back to ourselves for the following 24 months (62K). In other words can we be landlord and tenant?
