    You should be able to leave the contract, if there isn't anyone living there and you don't want them to find another T, then they don't make any money. But read any contract you signed.

    You should read the comments in this forum about renting to friends and family - just don't do it.

    2 questions. I rent my BTL property through a letting agent. The current tenant has handed notice in. Am I right in saying I can now leave this letting agent?

    Second question, the.reason I'm leaving the agent is because a very good friend of mine would like to rent he property. If she wants...

    Interesting, but it sounds like the university is definitely exceeding its authority and a clued up student could easily challenge any sanction they tried to impose.

    I have a question to which I suspect I know the answer, but I'll ask it anyway.

    We live in a house whose garden backs onto other gardens. One of those houses is let to a group of students.

    The students are given to making noise in their garden, particularly...

    As Artful says, you'll need to read your contract with the letting agency to see how and when the contract can be terminated.

    It seems more likely that your friend signed a new 12 month fixed term contract in January than the the tenancy agreement having an abnormally...

    To conclude with an update:
    Landlords in this position strongly advised to speak to Home Office Landlord Visa section in the first instance. You many experience a 'to-ing and fro-ing' between that section and the Landlords 'Right to Rent' section. See what they both say. They should both be advising...

    My tenant has been on a periodic agreement since September 2016. He has been a good tenant. His partner who was with him when he first rented left the property and was not replaced.
    He is now on a periodic agreement. I have not raised the rent since September 2016.

    He has explained...

    The latest government figures for possession claims have been published, which cover January through March 2022.
    That's post Covid restrictions and would probably include most of the last of the Covid backlog.

    And there's no sign of the massive wave of evictions and resulting mass...

    I think there's some date confusion above. If your 6 month fixed term tenancy began on 9 December, then it ends on 8 June. If you leave by midnight on that day then there will be no penalty or advance notice required. If you stay beyond this time a statutory periodic tenancy will arise. S5(5) of the...
