Tenancy agreement AST > Vacating Early terms - do they still apply under periodic?

    I'd agree with Snorkerz: You could have held tenant liable for rent and treat the tenancy as continuing until the correct expiry of their one month notice.

    But if room was relet from 1 March it means you had accepted that their tenancy would end by then.

    You have suffered no extra cost nor any loss, so it would seem rather petty to rely on the tenant's ignorance to extra money from them.
    If they do pay, perhaps consider it an unexpected bonus, but I would not pursue the matter if they do not.


      Snorkerz, jjlandlord - thank you for the advice gents.

      Interesting how T's are so very nice when they need a reference for their ongoing property, but when it comes to the deposit return (after I have given a glowing reference) they will twist and turn at every turn to get out of what they owe, and I'm not referring to the Early vacate terms discussed in this thread, am referring to things like carpet cleaning etc.. which the T knew was done at viewings as they commented on how clean it was but never mind, I have the receipts to show professional cleaning was done. Just wished T's would just have enough moral decency to meet what's outlined in the TA and not 'try it on'.

      Well, I can always update the new LL, EA of deposit return experience so they have an amber light on this particular T. Which is basically what I got from his previous LL

      Now, who can someone please help with drafting my AST to amend so it is "contractual periodic tenancy" tight?

        I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

        It's almost impossible to reset the tenancy with a new agreement.
        The buyer will inherit the previous tenancy at the same point that they're able to let the property on the new agreement, so any new tenancy is going to be a follow on tenancy.
        So things that need to be done at the very start...

        I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
        Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

        You're really going to struggle with that not being a tenancy.
        If the tenant can lock the door to exclude you, and they could wash in a sink, that's likely to be a dwelling house.

        I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

        How basic is your understanding?

        From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....

        Unless it is REALLY cheap - don't!

        I inherited a property with a regulated tenant. The rent can only go up once every 2 years, by a specified amount, although more often if you improve the property, but it will always be cheap.

        Most tenants have been in a very long time and...

        Agree with above but if the property is in poor condition and the tenant elderly (or could be child of tenant who may be middle aged) then steer clear. I would definitely speak with the tenant.
