    'Exactly one month' satisfies 'at least one month'

        Perhaps if you read the whole thread you would understand my post and not make pointless comments.

            The problem is that it can waste people's time in composing a reply that has already been given, or is invalidated by information only available on the other site. It is best to avoid it, but if you do it, you should cross link the two threads so that people can find the whole debate.

              Your NTQ will expire at 23.59.59 and can't be legally extended,.
              LL is entitled to claim 2x daily rent as mesne profit or 1 month rent from date it was payable.

                Your old landlord might require you to prove that all your utilities and council tax are paid up to date before releasing the deposit. Check your tenancy agreement for this. Having had a bad experience in the past where a tenant, having moved in, transferred the elec bill to my name, I always check utilities etc have been paid.

                  Ok but if I request an extension & it is granted will I avoid any charges?

                  Also, the tenancy will end on a Saturday. How does this normally effect it if at all it does? Will I need to move out / hand the keys in on a weekday which would be the 23rd & a day before the tenancy is due to end.

                  • AST and periodic tenancy
                    skay2
                    Hi all,

                    This is my first post and my first BTL experience.

                    I bought a new built flat from a developer in England last year. The Lease Agreement stipulated that I need the freeholder’s consent to let it. The request was granted without any mention of extra fees. I found a...

                    2. The terms specifically allows for AST, which is the default type of tenancy on private letting in England. If you're letting out to a human tenant in England, it's almost certainly going to be on an AST (unless you explicitly grant more security under a non-shorthold assured tenancy). I understand...

                    Thanks MdeB for the quick reply.

                    (1) I would raise it to the new freeholder with regard to tenancy registration fee. Just curious, is it a common practice for freeholder to squeeze more money out from BTL landlords?

                    (2) So a periodic tenancy is still an AST... I forgot to ask...

                    1. I would say "no", but I am not an expert.
                    2. it becomes a new AST. It appears to be no breach.
                    3. The council can chase you for unpaid CT; you then need to chase T. Agreement should say you can do this.
                    Note that the terms of the original agreement carry over to...

                    ash72
                    Two questions, on when a tenant has left the property but left their things.

                    1. What happens if some of the items are food, which will perish within a few days/week can you throw these away? Or do you have follow the letter of the law and keep them for up to 3 months if they owe you rent...

                    In my experience, food left in the property becomes inedible within a day

                    The rent to guide is correct, but the guide is referring to when a tenant does not owe monies, but this question is for when there is monies owed by the T, when the LL is owed monies (rent arrears) they HAVE to keep the items for 3 months, and try and find the T and if successful then serve the notice...

                    Lord Denning no less answered that very question: The tenant must take proper care of the place. He must, if he is going away for the winter, turn off the water and empty the boiler. He must clean the chimneys, where necessary, and also the windows. He must mend the electric light when it fuses. He...

                    The goverment 'how to rent' booklet gives a figure of two weeks, which I think is reasonable.
