    Thank you Mrs Mug. So in effect a L can impose unilaterally a new fixed term. Assuming a S21 notice has already been served, a L then proceeds to apply for a possession order.

      No, as you’ve already been told.

      both have to agree to a new fixed term and the conditions attached. Landlord can not unilaterally impose a new fixed term.

        Just because that is what I have been told as you put it, does not make it correct.

        If a T does not agree to a new fixed term, then a L can proceed to evict following the correct lawful procedure. Which in effect means a L can get the fixed term he wants, albeit from a different T. So in a way, although the L can't impose unilaterally a fixed term on a T, if the T doesn't agree, a L can proceed to evict as I have just mentioned and find a T who will agree.

        As I see it, L& T matters are purely about negotiation between the parties anyway, like most things in life.

          Spiritkary, are you a landlord, agent or a tenant?

          The answers you've been given won't change, but we will be able to understand why you are asking better. Do you have a specific question that you want answered?

              The property was inspected - although Covid has it effect - but the tenant is entitled to live as they wish during the tenancy. It only became a problem when they failed to bring the property back to the condition they took it in when they left.

              I was just amazed that they could so easily...

              Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

              House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
              Garden was left in a mess...

              To be honest I picked that rule up on this forum - I've heard it over and over. I'm probably guilty of having repeated it myself! If an error gets repeated enough in a small community it becomes fact!...

              I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

              There are those who follow Quintin Crisp: “There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.” Equally, there are those who are obsessive about cleaning. In the middle somewhere is a group who do not feel inclined to take great care of a rented...

              There is a lot of misinformation on the internet and in some cases a significant number of people come to believe it. The bank.charges affair was a classic case. Another was the belief that landlord's were obliged to mitigate their loss when a tenant abandons property and owes rent....

              Most likely, also depending on the age and sex of the children, they will need separate rooms eventually, so wont be a long term T. Get ready to serve notice. I would also check your insurance policy, as I renewed one of my policies recently, and I was just checking if they would still cover me if I...

              by Alison Laws
              My tenant who is 4 months into her tenancy agreement has moved her partner in without permission and Im wondering can use this to issue a new tenancy agreement with his name on it. She isn't the easiest tenant and I would also like to add an agreement break to the new tenancy because of the difficulty...
