    '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.

              Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

              I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

              I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

              Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

              This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

              But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

              Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

              Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

              With your tenancy agreement
              • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
              • Guarantor

              To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
