  • Quick one - Tenant not given any notice on 1 year fixed contract

    Hi, my tenants are on a 1 year fixed contract. I've just found out by the agent that they are coming out in 2 weeks at the end of their contract. By law, do they have to give me any notice at all? Agents says they dont. A quick reply greatly appreciated as i'm seeing the tenants later in the day, Many thanks, Mark

    Agent is correct. T does not have to give any notice if he leaves on or before the last day of the fixed term (obviously, he is liable for rent up to and including the last day of the fixed term).

      If T leaves on the expiry of the Letting, no Notice is needed (although it would be polite for T to tell L or L's letting agent).
      Quick enough for you?

          'The Tenant' (all 3), can vacate at end of fixed term with no Notice. If remainers sign a new AST to commence after fixed termpref naming new joint, this sould replace original AST. Deed of Surrender is 'belt & brace'.

          If incomer signs a Deed of Assignment they only inherit the term...

        • Lease extension
          Hi All, I have approached the freeholder on an informal basis to extend the lease of a flat I own as a rental. He has come up with reasonable price for the premium to extend to 125 years from now but wants to double the ground rent every 25 years (from £80 to £160 p/a initially). My solicitor has...

          I think the problem may be that they are not really 'moving out'. There is a long thread elsewhere on the forum that may be of interest. Although unresolved, it suggests that if some of them don't move out then an SPT will arise automatically for all of them. I really don't want to restart that discussion...

          The Leasehold Advisory Service has an online lease extension calculator that should give you a rough idea of the cost.

          I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

          I have experienced far more dificult cases than that from my neighbour's tenants with my front window and my flat door window cracked.

          Make an offer she cannot refuse. Carrots work better.

          Local Authorities are slow moving because shortage of housing is a problem.

        • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
          Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

          Since the Yale was broken it proves the tenants took responsible measures for the security: they locked the door.
          The yale is necessary for security. It is sufficient and safe to use in case of a fire because you could get out quickly operating the lock with the thump ie you don't want to be looking...
