    Notice for 12 month term

    I want to give my tenant notice. However, on looking back through my emails, I see that the lettings agent wrote "The tenant would like to renew their tenancy at the end of their current term and has requested a 12 month term."

    Will this mean I've got her until the end of next October? Can I not serve an S21 notice?

    If the agency has signed a new 12 month fixed term then yes. You should have read your emails, I would send the agent an email/ letter stating you don't want to extend next year. If the agent hasn't renewed and it has gone periodic then you can serve notice on the T.


      As far as I know this was in 2016 and there seems to have been nothing since.

        It’s a joint tenancy so you can’t bring the tenancy to an end for just one person, it would have to be ended for all of them. As a joint tenancy each tenant has joint and several liability for the whole rent so you can write to all of them stating that they are now in arrears. Those who are paying...

        Dear All,

        My T recently complained that the electric radiator was not working and so her room was cold. I had a tradesman attend. The radiator had tripped off as she had been hanging towels on it. We fixed, told her if it stops working again due to her action, we will charge a call out...

        Just dont sell… problem solved

        If Labour get hold of this country again after Blair messed it up then we will be well on the path to becoming a socialist state and anyone who is considered well off will be in trouble. We all know that socialism doesnt work....

        Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

        Hi all, sorry if this has already been asked/answered, but can anyone give me a link to the law regarding holding deposits?

        I have not been able to find anything official to confirm that the landlord/agent is allowed to keep this if the applicant fails to proceed with the application and...

        I have a very small flat let out to a single tenant. The tenancy agreement states the maximum number of occupants as one.

        The tenant now wants her mother to stay with her as a guest for several months (she would have nowhere else to stay as she is not a UK resident). ...

        Your opinion on what constitutes negligence doesn’t really matter. It’s the law’s take on it that matters. If I went out and murdered someone when I wasn’t in my right state of mind then I could use the ‘diminished responsibility’ defence. That’s for a most heinous criminal offence so...

        Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.
