  • Removing tenant on month to month agreement

    Your help and advice on this forum is much appreciated. I have a tenant who’s 6 month AST just ran out and is refusing to sing another one, saying that they want to move out but haven’t found a place yet. In case things get sticky, how can I get them removed? Do I have to give 2 months notice if it’s a monthly contractual agreement?
    Many thanks

    That's right, two months from you, one month from the tenant.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      Would the cost to them be a tenor?
      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.

        Hi

        Just as a matter of interest, why don't you just allow them to stay as long as they want and then market the property? Wouldn't this maximise your occupancy? I'm interested just to hear how other people view this issue.

          Not quite right.
          Assume rent due monthly in advance.
          FROM L: at least two months
          FROM T: at least one month
          BUT, in each case, the period then runs on until after the end of a tenancy month. It's not necessarily a nice, tidy 'two months/one month'!

            I would like to move back in to the property, but currently i'm a teanat with 2 months left on an AST - would like to add a break clause in the next AST to allow me to move back in my house when the tenant moves out - but point taken, normaly I would allow them to stay there to maximse occupancy.
