    tenancy Renewal

    Hi

    Im currently renting from a private landlord and its costing me a fortune so im looking to move to a housing association but its difficult for me to do because Im renting privatly. My tenancy agreement is up at the end of this month and I just wanted to know whether if I refuse to renew my landlord will serve me with notice to quit.

    I really dont want to stay where i am anyway cause my landlord is rubbish when it comes to repairs and if i get a notice to quit it will be easier to move.

    any ideas??

    Thanks

    Who knows? There's no need to 'renew' a tenancy anyway - if you don't do so, the existing one will continue to run perfectly legally on a month-to-month basis indefinitely; that's what many landlords and tenants prefer anyway. So there would be no reason for him to ask you to leave.

    Bear in mind that if you are seen to make yourself 'intentionally homeless' you will have zilch chance of getting LHA housing, and if he serves you with notice to quit, the landlord will almost certainly be asked why he's doing so. In your scenario, that would rule you out.

      Indeed you won't get a housing association property if you give up your current let property. Why not find a cheaper place?

        I'm in about 10000 pounds worth of debt and i dont have the money for another deposit. Besides its not just the money that makes me want to move. There are things wrong with the property that I've reported over and over again that the landlord is refusing to fix but because its not things like heating, damp etc. its not a health issue so theres no way for me to force them into doing it and theyre now pressuring me to renew my contract which costs me £50 but theyll want me to do it again in 6 months time.

          It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

          I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
          I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
          I do not intend to live at the property
          Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
          As its...

          I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

          Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

          If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

          That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

          The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.

          I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

          You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

          I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

          I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
