    'periodic tenancies'

    I'd like to find out more about these including maybe specimin agreement forms.

    Any help please?

    Most tenancies today are granted as Assured Shorthold Tenancies and if the tenant stays on after the initial fixed term those tenancies become periodic tenancies.

    Are you writing as a landlord or as a tenant? What advantages or disadvantages do you see in using an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement?

    Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.

      Hi Vic!

      ...I'd rent to somone I know who wants the freedom of this sort of place and wouldn't obviously try and initiate complaints about the lack of bathroom etc. The only possible problem being an inspection by housing benefit/council tax benefit officials resulting in a question being raised over 'fitness for habitation' perhaps. But again I don't think they'd question it. They sometimes do initial property checks regarding housing benefit claims...and usually regular checks regarding council tax claims and housing benefit. The ongoing checks are usually more concerned with fraudulant claimants (cohabitation etc etc etc) than substandard property issues. Thats the way the 'system' works!

        Well a 'periodic tenancy' is not what you're after - it's not appriate for your scenario. It is what kicks in after the end of an AST, as Vic has said: it's not an alternative route to avoiding setting up an AST.

          Does a assured periodic tenancy kick in automatically at the end of an AST?

            Yes, it's known as a 'periodic tenancy' though.
