    Notice

    We have stayed in our house now past the initial 6 month contract so we are going on a rolling month contract.

    Our landlords have now given us 2 months notice (which ends in the middle of a rental month) to move her parents in.

    Even though it says nowhere in our contract that we have to give her 1 months notice as well she wants us to pay her another months rent. We assumed we paid the rent up to when we move out. We could only give her notice when we applied for our new house which was 2 weeks before we move in as estate agents turnover times are quick and we were only accepted 4 days before the new contract started. She says that as she has not received a months notice in writing so she wants us to pay for a full month rent for a house were not going to live in and she has already got her new tenants to move in a months time so she doesnt need to advertise. Can she do this even though it does not say in our contract to give a months notice and only advises to discuss this with the land lord who is adamant we should give notice in writing?

    I'm afraid your post is rather rambling and doesn't make sense. From the bit I do understand, you need to be given 2 months notice to end at the end of a rent period, ie the day before your rent is due.

    You can't be charged for any time you aren't living there. Once you have been given notice during the periodic tenancy, you can leave at any time.

      Members may be interested to know exactly what kind notice she gave you; eg was it a section 21 notice, or notice to quit ? Did she give it to you before the end of the fixed period or after? What kind of tenancy agreement have you got?

      The notice you should give her will be written in the agreement. She cannot change the agreement she made with you.

      It usually follows if she gives you notice, you should not have to give her notice as well, but it may depend on what your agreement says and the kind of notice she gave you.

      Please post back.

        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 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...

        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.

        Emailing means the person may or may not receive it, and if they do, they may or may not reply. I didn't want to wait around to find out if I do get a reply. I wanted to get a phone number.
        In any case, I managed to get hold of the Landlord via the business. The ball is now in his court.
