      Don't waste money on PAT tests for new appliances and they shouldn't need one for at least three years.

        PAT Testing only every 3 years?

        Interesting statement Paul, can you support this with any documentation? The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) publishes the Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Testing which has a recommended frequency of testing. The shortest period is 3 months and the longest period is 48 months but it all depends on the class of appliance and the environment in which the appliance is kept.

        • if we haven't signed the renewal are we still liable?

          Our 6 month short term assured tenancy agreement ended on the 2nd August. We are with a reputable agency. We were invited to renew for a further 6 months back in July and were asked to email our confirmation that we wish to renew in writing. This I did. We were sent the renewal tenancy to sign. We have...

          I would say your original AST continues as SPT.
          If now a new verbal AST, you may have a new fixed term and you cannot serve NTQ during fixed term (6 months?).
          Talk to LL directly, rather than LA.
          Why did you agree to a new AST, rather than request rolling over to SPT....

          Hi guys, I know that a tenant can claim a penalty on an unprotected deposit but I just wondered when the 6 year clock starts ticking.

          As memory fades over time, can someone provide a 'sticky' for dates when key elements of LL&T Legislation changed? I believe Apr 2012 predates later deposit timescales.

        • NTQ during fixed term?

          Hi,
          Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

          It's worth noting that guidance is under part 4 where tenant obviously is given notice to end of a period and therefore apportionment would not be applicable.

          The reference to the notice to quit ending the tenancy on the notice date does not change the fact that it obviously does however,...

          I think thats exactly what the section I have just quoted confirms.

          And thereafter, if you choose not to accept they are leaving as a result of the section 21 you must insist on a notice to quit or await a court ordering possession (where you will be ordered to apportion anyway)

          A lot of energy has been expended in this debate. It has been suggested a LL has no need to take Court action if T apparently vacates after receiving a s21 but with no Notice. LL cannot safely assume has vacated without Court confirmation, to avoid a T allegation of 'illegal eviction'. Equally I would...

          If someone could copy and paste section 21 (4) a and b (I'm really not technical!), the law seems to recognise that a tenancy CAN end as a result of a section 21 and before a possession hearing.

          21(4)b........the tenancy could be brought to an end by notice to quit given by the landlord...

          Assuming that the money originally paid had been used as a deposit for the single tenant tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days from when the 2012 tenancy started. And... if that was a fixed term tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days for any subseqent renwal and likewise from when it went periodic.
