    Professional landlord - NOT!

    Do not issue any more tenancies! Not now (and judging by the unenforceable terms you have just quoted) NOT EVER! Jeesh!

    Maybe in the seventies, Rigsby used to use it.

    You must give the tenant a minimum 2 months notice ending on the last day of a rental period.

    You dont need to get another agreement signed.

    (the tenant only needs to give one months notice to leave no matter what you write in the agreement.)

    Advice required re giving tentants notice

    Hi, I've been renting my bungalow out since June last year, I gave the Tentants a six month shorthold tenancy agreement,which they signed, I never got another one issued in January, and now I need the house back for us to live in as we have a baby due in 10weeks. In the original agreement it stated that I need to give them 4 weeks notice

    "5.6 If at any time the Landlord:
    5.6.1 requires the House for occupation by himself or any member of his family; or
    5.6.2 wishes to sell the House with vacant possession; or
    5.6.3 has died and the Landlord’s personal representatives require vacant possession either to sell the House or so that it can be occupied by a beneficiary under the Landlord’s will or intestacy
    then, in any such case, the Landlord may terminate the tenancy by serving not less than one month’s notice in writing expiring at any time.
    5.7 If at any time during the Term the Tenant wishes to terminate the tenancy, he may do so by giving not less than two months’ notice in writing expiring at any time."

    They are due to pay rent again on Friday 24th February and I intend to give them written notice at this time.

    because another tenancy agreement wasn't issued, where do I stand from a legal point of view.
    Should I issue another agreement and have it signed on Friday and then give them notice on Monday.

    Any help would be great

    I think there'll be a dip in property prices post event.
    There'll be a lot of dead, grieving and damaged people and lots of businesses and jobs will be gone forever.

    Which will keep landlords in the rental business, because it won't be the best time to sell up.

    The government...

    I've been reading all the chat on this forum and was thinking about what it's going to be like after, will landlords be more weary of self employed tenants, have more uc or pack in all together ? Interesting times and the tenants are going to struggle even more as landlords try to doubley make sure...

    Honestly, you need proper legal advice.
    This is a huge mess and it's getting worse with everything you do.

    Legal advice only seems expensive when you compare it with nothing.
    When you compare it with the costs of getting this wrong, it'd cheap.

    If the person is...

    I have rented my mother’s house out to 2 x lodgers on my mother’s behalf as she has been hospitalised due to mental medical condition. A lodger agreement was given to them as she was expected to return back in few weeks’ time. However situation had changed and she had to live out...

    Thanks for replies. The only reason I am serious over this matter is because apart of CVD19 outbreak I might be accused of causing this mess despite I don't smoke. But there is a little obstacle in actually ascertaining as who is the real culprit because upward there are two more flats (1st & 2nd...

    I will ask for others opinions because I am not an expert on resident landlords / lodgers, but I don't believe any of them could have been lodgers if there were 3 of them occupying all 3 bedrooms - ie, no where for a resident landlord to reside. And if they were't lodgers, they were tenants. As your...
