    Break in AST Agreement

    We have a house let to 3 students on a year long joint AST agreement, with a break permitted after 6 months (Dec 31st). One of the students has given notice to leave the house on this date. My question is this: does this effectively end the agreement and the joint tenancy on 31st December and do we therefore have to isssue a new agreement for the other two joint tenants to take them to 30th June 2007, or can they just continue on the old agreement as they have not given notice to leave? Thanks for your help.

    If you think about this you could probably answer the question yourself.

    If you have, say, three tenants who are jointly and severally liable on one AST and one gives Notice to Quit then it terminates the agreement - period! So you will have to draw up a new AST for the remaining two tenants, but if a new one should come along to join the other two afterwards, then you will need to draw up yet another..............I think you get the picture!
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      Hi

      My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
      I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

      Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

      I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

      Apologies if I have posted this before, but I cannot find my original post, if I did indeed post!
      I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

      I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

      It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

      I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...

      The tenant should produce evidence that he is not paying rent due to coronavirus. Also it does not mean he should continue living in the property forever and not pay rent due to coronavirus
