    It is the same tenant. He has expressed his wish for a new fixed period agreement, for a bit of security I suppose. I have no problem at present granting it - it is just proving a problem getting the documents signed before the intended start date of the new agreement.

    Thanks
    In that case P.Pilcher has answered your query (above!)

    So it's less of a problem- even without the new documentation, T has a tenancy in place.

    It doesn't matter much as your tenant has a statutory periodic tenancy which commenced as soon as his AST expired. You can do nothing and leave this in place if you like. Its only differences are that (i) you can alter the rent under section 13, (ii) Your tenant can leave provided he gives you one month's notice and (iii) you can give your tenant two months notice ending on a rent day if you want him to leave.
    If you still want him to sign a new AST, this is your right but maybe it should start on the date of signature. If he refuses then you must give him two months notice as above. This of course presupposes that you have not at some time already served a section 21 notice on your tenant during the currency of his AST.

    P.P.

    This will mean the the tenancy will already have started at the point of signing? Does this matter, or should I begin obtaining and filling in new documents?

    Thank you in anticipation of any advice.
    When you say 'a new AST', do you mean a new tenant, or the same tenant as before starting a new agreement?

    If the latter (as I assume it is, from the title of your thread|), the tenancy will become periodic (rolling) anyway, won't it?

    Does he have a good reason for delaying signing? Might he want out?

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

    In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

    IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
