    Transfer to Periodic from AST

    Our tenants' 6 month AST comes to an end in just over three weeks time on 17 February. Prior to it starting both parties agreed (verbally) to let it run on into a Periodic Tenancy.

    Does either party have to do anything to formalise this arrangement or does it 'just happen'?

    It just happens, in accordance with s.5 of the Housing Act 1988. See http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/legResu...=1&SortAlpha=0.
    However, that pre-supposes that:
    a. T still occupies as only or main home; and
    b. L and T have not entered into any new contract.
    Really, it was not even necessary that both parties agreed (verbally) to let it run on into a Periodic Tenancy. That's just what the Act does.
    The Statutory Periodic Tenancy begins on the day after the fixed term ends. If the fixed term ran from 18 August 2009 to 17 February 2010 inclusive, the SPT starts on 18 Feb; and again on 18 March/April/etc. The rent and other provisions remain as in the fixed term too.

      Also, any s.21(1)(b) Notice already served on T during the fixed term is still available for you to use- should the need arise- during the SPT.

        Thanks, nice and simple so, having decent tenants (as oppsoed to the previous pr*ts), I'll just leave things to meander on.
