    Licence Agreement

    my son signed a licence agreement with his landlady in September 2015. She has given one month's notice to everyone in the property (as she is having problems with the council (Slough) ) by text. Should this be notice be in a letter form and take effect just before his due date?
    Also, is it a rolling licence agreement and should she be giving 2 month's notice?

    This sounds like it might be a lodging arrangement, in which case the only right is to "reasonable notice".

    It would also be useful to know what the issues with the council was, as it is conceivable that HMO rules have been triggered, and I'm not sure whether that would give more rights.

      That the agreement says it's a licence may not mean it is. Unless landlady lives there it will be an AST & require s21, on paper, at least 2 months.

      If unsure call Shelter 0808 800 4444

      How many people in the place & how many floors?

        The property is an HMO and the landlady does not live in the house so they are not lodgers. Took advice from ARLA and they think landlady should have given 2 months notice. Will proceed on that basis. Thanks for your input đź‘Ť
        Did contact Shelter but they advised contacting a solicitor

          Seems likely there is a tenancy, not a licence.

            So need for compliance with deposit protection & service of GSC, EPC & "How to rent" booklet before any valid S21 can be served.

            So, sham licence, problems with council - wonder what else she's "forgotten" to do - have an EPC, get a GSC done, (if more than 3 people probably ) HMO compliance, declare her rent to HMRC etc etc etc...
