    What happens when six-month fixed term expires?

    Hi

    If I let my property on a fixed term - 6 months, does the lease automatically renew after 6 months has lapsed on a rolling monthly basis if I do not serve an eviction notice on my tenant?

    If this happens and the lease renews automatically every month how long do I need to give my tenant to vacate the property?

    If they default on payments after 6 months has lapsed how long before I can serve an eviction notice on them?

    Regards

    If they default on payments after 6 months has lapsed how long before I can serve an eviction notice on them? You can serve a S.8 Notice as soon as two months rent remains unpaid, and that is at anytime during the tenancy.

    Regards
    Look up posts on S.8 and there are hundreds to view
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      If it's an AST or SAT, see s.5 of Housing Act 1988 re continuation of tenancy by operation of law.
