    I suspect that as their are no fees payable on renewal by the T's the agents want to keep their commission from you on the limited service they are providing if they are not managing the tenancy.

    You would need to see what your contract is with the LA as to see if can terminate their involvement.

    Yes, unless the tenancy agreement says otherwise, a new periodic tenancy will begin when the fixed term ends.

    Rolling / Periodic Tenancy

    Hi all, I hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine this week.
    My flat is rented out using an assured shorthold tenancy agreement of 12 months, the 12 months ends in August this year. It is rented out through a local estate agents using their 'rent & collect' service. The agent has asked me to check with the tenants whether they want to renew the contract for another year or terminate their contract.
    If the tenants want to stay is it possible to just switch to a rolling month by month periodic tenancy? I have not been given this option by the agents. We may (try to) sell the flat in the next 12 months so I am keen not to be locked into a 12 month tenancy.

    I am still a fairly new landlord so apologies for the basic question
    Many thanks,

    It would be better to get a specialist window fitter or someone recommended by the manufacturer rather than use the 'go to guy'.

    I'm looking into having a new front door, living room and first floor windows fitted to my rental property, and the letting agency "go to guy" really doesn't inspire confidence when I met him today! (On other quotes for different work) He mentioned that the glass needs to be toughened if...

    Yes if the windows are below a certain height, they need to be toughened glass so that someone can't accidentally break it. If they are at standard level then no toughened glass is required. Also windows need to be a certain width in case of fire.

    As the T has stated, there isn't much more you can do, see if they leave in Oct, if not follow up with proceeding to the courts and eventually bailiffs if they have not left.

    Our tenants have broken the tenancy agreement 9 times - painting my kitchen cupboards and chopping down trees. So it’s section 21. My issue is. We allowed 3 dogs and were told they would be housed outside and they intended to build a kennel. This hadn’t happened, instead they seem to be converting...

    Congratulations Perce. I’m so happy to hear this is over. You have been through total hell with this. I remember the support you gave me - and how upbeat and optimistic you were about it all. Yours was 16 months, mine was 21 months. I’ve left the place empty. Cannot bear dealing with it or hearing...

    Hello All

    Update : My tenant has no plans to move out before bailiffs arrive which is imminent. I have no clue what the bailiffs will do. He will start complaining that he has nowhere to go although he lives somewhere else just keeps his stuff in the property for free, he might say...

    Thanks Ash and Artful, yes the tenant has already paid the 1st month at the new rate, As you suggest Ash, I will write back to them confirming the new rate.
