    AST letting expiry- what happens when term ends?

    My tenant is about to go over the standard 6 month tenantcy agreement.

    i have read somewhere that once they go over this, and dont sign another it reverts to a 12 month agreement.

    is there anywhere in writing this will be online, or will it be in the initial agreement.

    as its now as 12 month agreement, do they still need to give me 1 months notice, or are they now tied into the full 12 months.

    i ask, as they are £30 down on last months rent, and if they fail to catch it up with the next payment through the letting agent, this might be a sign of them looking to move on etc.

    They were due to pay £450 to the agent, they paid £420.

    Not sure where you have read that but anyway

    On an ast if neither party do not renew the contract it reverts to a statutory periodic tenancy (rolling contract) where by you are both held to the conditions of the contract but the tenant can serve you 1 months notice and you can give them 2 months notice (on or before the date the rent is due for monthly tenancies). So this can continue until they leave or serve notice.

    Ask your agent what the tenants intend to do

      Post #2 is correct; but are you sure for how long you initially let the premises? Does the Letting Agreement state 'six months' or 'twelve months'?

        Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

        Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

        Sarah's right of...

        Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

        I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

        There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
        That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

        About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

        I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

        I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

        There...

        No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
