  • Periodic Tenancy

    Hi There, wonder if anyone can help.

    I have a tenant who wishes roll over in to a periodic tenancy once here fixed term contract ends ( which is soon) i don't have a problem with this as she is a good tenants and pays on time. I understand that if i do not get her to sign a new 6 month fixed term tenancy it will automaticaly turn into a periodic tenancy with the same terms as the origional. Is there any standard letter a landord should give to the tenant to say that they are now in a periodic tenancy and what details must be in the letter? If you can help i would appreciate it. Googled for hours and cant find anything that tells me.

    No, the tenancy just goes periodic by default. Personally I do always write to my tenants to explain what's happening though, as otherwise many would just think they no longer have an agreement.

      Be careful in the wording of such letter. If it's necessary at all (which I doubt), it must only reflect s.5 of the 1988 Act- otherwise, you might inadvertently create a new Tenancy.

        I suppose if you let the tenancy become a periodic one then there is no need to have the deposit in a TDS, if the original tenancy was created pre the relevant date when TDS became compulsory.

          This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
          Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
          I served the...

          I'll leave it at that. I'm not going to get into one of JPK's interminable arguments.

          I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

          I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

          That's simply one of the Schedule 2 exemptions which, if met, allows a process using personal data at all - all the other principles still apply in parallel (where it can be stored, be not excessive, kept up to date etc).

          So, while it might be OK because it relates to a contract, there...

          I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

          A new 12 month fixed term does provide LL & T with extra security but can lead to complications for either if their resp circumstances/legislation change during the new AST.
          Personally, I would prefer if a orig AST was for a fixed 6 month term, followed by an SPT that required both LL &...

          I'm not sure they're "lying", they're just making some assumptions.

          The agent can't decide if something is "too" risky or not - there are upsides and downsides to having a new fixed term agreement, and they're right to point out, for example, that the income would be...

          Unless the tenant has given consent for the data to be used in this way, probably.

          There's a grey area with this kind of data, because it's obviously been obtained for a purpose (which is to facilitate the renting of a property) and that's what it's being used for.
          There's usually...
