    Head fuzz over rent due dates

    AST signed on 26th. 6 month term ends on the 25th.
    I know some will say it depends what you have agreed but from a legal point of view please
    Question 1: What day is the rent due on each month ?
    Question 2: what date would count as overdue by one day?

    I'm thinking Q2 must be 27th and Q1 rent due on 26th but previous tenants have always paid their rent before the last day, so don't usually have to think about it

    When does tenancy agreement state rent is due? Sadly can't read it from here. If rent is ever by chance due on a bank holiday, Xmas day or good friday it is only actually due the day after.

    (S1 Bank & financial dealings act 1971)

      It's a rla ast so there's no specific date on it as far as I recall

        I mean it's dated and was signed to start 26th to end 25th that's all I believe it states
        I attached a standing order request saying to pay on 25th but I'm not sure if I'm wrong and it's 26th that it'd be due on...legally I mean
        Therefore not overdue until 27th?? Sorry

          Are you the letting agent (as you posted in that section)??

          According to RLA's current AST
          The first rental payment is for the rental period beginning on the start date shown in A2. After that you must pay rent on the first day of every rent period which follows while the tenancy lasts.
          Did you actually bother to read the relevant paper agreement before your post #4, please?

            The tenancy should normally (ideally) day something like at a rent of XXX per calendar month payable in advance with the first payment due XXX

            If the tenancy started on the 26th, and the payment period is per calendar month, and the contract is otherwise silent in the rent due date, then it’s pretty likely it’s due on the 26th of every month and overdue if unpaid by the 27th (save for bank holidays, as mentioned by Artful above).

              Thank-you for the reassurance that makes sense.

                If you use the Openrent full tenancy creation service (£49 + referencing) they automatically serve the How to Rent guide and all prescribed information for you and protect the deposit, all done by the software (no human to mess it up) and by email and all parties are copied in for proof of service...

                Hello all,
                I wondered if anyone could give me some advice please.
                Tenants who have been renting my one bed flat for the past three years have just given notice that they will be moving out. I have used a local agent on a ‘let & rent collection’ basis which has worked well but they...

                Their process is about as simple as they could possibly make it. If you're logging into this forum and posting, it won't be a huge stretch of your abilities to get your property listed on OpenRent.

                Yes, I used their referencing service (£20 per person, plus £20 for any guarantor). I...

                I am a huge fan of Openrent. There are lots of threads showing users experiences of Openrent on these forums. If you type Openrent into the search box at the top of the page on the main forum home page you will see them.

                If you decide not to use Openrent, and so use a traditional agent,...

                Berwick thank you that’s so helpful! I will definitely do the inventory and great idea on printing and signing the Tenancy Agreement together- I shall do that too.
                Does the Open Rent site guide you through the steps of the process? I.e. advertise, meet/accept, reference etc?
                Did you use...

                I've used agents for 'tenant find only'.

                After a bad eperience, I used OpenRent. I've now used them twice and got great tenants both times.

                It's so much better to have complete control. You get a gut feeling for the tenant when you phone them to arrange the viewings, even...

                In the window of a rogue agent!

                -the one's who actually benefit when a rogue tenant brings the landlord back to them much more often than a streetwise OpenRent landlord needs to re-let. My 'fees' are on average £29 for an average 4 year let, with rents only below market rate for exceptionally...

                I have always done it without an agent; It is my show after all. I usually can filter out the right tenant by having a conversation through mailing. The referencing I do through a previous landlord or agent - big name agents is best though, as they are more thorough in their screening; if the Tennant...

                If people are rude enough no to attend a viewing then it is a good thing -you don't want rude arrogant selfish tenants .I can usually find a few tasks so time is put to good use-irrespective of absences.
