    Going periodic and payment of Council Tax

    My original fixed term contract states that I, the landlord, will pay the council tax. It is expiring and I wish to renew the tenancy (no rental increase) but change the responsability of paying the council tax to the tenant in the contract. If the tenant refuses to sign and allows the tenancy to go periodic can I still demand the tenant pay the council tax or not? Cheers.

    No, you can't change the terms of the contract without the T's agreement. You could, however, serve notice to increase the rent. See http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...earchid=333041

      ...if the fixed term (inc. any earlier ones at same rent) ran for at least a year.

          Just to clarify, what I meant was that the requirement comes from the tenancy terms if they include it....

          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...

          or just work hard and hopefully take an early retirement.

          You can't predict the future. Things always go in cycle. They want to get rid of Section 21, so you may be unable to get your property back. You may end up working and subsidising your rentals....

          It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

          I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
          I do not intend to live at the property
          Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

          I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

          Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

          If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

          That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

          The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
          The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...
