    Moving back into old rental

    Is it possible to move back into a old rental property if you had had previously handed in the correct notice?

    Two months ago almost, I handed in my notice to my landlord, and signed up for 6 month AST on a new tenancy. As I am not happy there, and as my previous property that i rented is still empty, would a landlord look favourably on me, given that I had a tenancy with him for over a year and a half, and always paid rent on time? One thing to note is that I have still not received my deposit back from my previous property. Is it possible for the landlord to hold onto that, so that I can move back to his old place?

    Anything's possible. Did you dispute deposit deductions? That would exclude you in my book.

      JK0, not at all. I was told I would hear from the landlord as soon as inspections were furthered. And we left it at a happy note. I just don't seem to have heard anything.

        Of course you are still liable for the new six month tenancy.

        Your old landlord is going to want know what you intend to do about that.

            If ex LL is prepared to offer you a new 6 month AST - then Yes,
            but,I would not.

              Fine, as long as you can afford that, and a credit check confirms that you can afford it, and the ex-LL isn't worried that you can afford it.
              (There again he might not care as long as he gets his money).

                if the property is still empty most landlords would be keen to let it, so maybe. They would be more likely to say yes if you offered to contract for a longer period. I would be concerned about the length of time for which you are paying double rent. You certainly wouldnt be the preferred tenant if the landlord has a choice.

                  as the LL of the second property, if you were going to move out and go back to your old place, I'd want to be paid off for all the rent owing for the fixed term and have you sign a deed of surrender. I wouldn't want you to be renting my place and another at the same time. It would screw with my insurance and the council tax liability at the very least.

                    Tatemono, the property I want to move back into is a HMO. The place I currently occupy is a flat to myself, council tax and all. End of the year, I will have three months equivalent of rent left to pay before the tenancy ends. Absolutely hate it here. Any advice on what I can do/say before asking the previous landlord to take me back?

                        as I said, you need to negotiate a deed of surrender with your current landlord. How your LL responds may determine your options...
