    periodic tenancy

    a friend of mine is a tenant with a 6 month tenancy agreement which started on 23rd June last year. It therefore will have turned into a periodic tenancy as she has never signed a new one since.

    She wants to give notice, does she have to give a month's notice ending on 22nd of a month or can it end on any date of the month so it would just be a month from when the landlord would receive the letter.

    I'm trying to raise awareness of Myotonic Dystrophy, Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and In vitro fertilisation (IVF). Follow my PGD blog and please pass it on to any one you know who has an interest in PGD or IVF.

    On 231206, a new periodic tenancy began: and so on each 23rd day of each month.
    T can terminate by giving one month's notice at any point BUT termination effective only at end of one such period (ie 22nd of any month).

      Hi all,

      Long time lurker, first time poster. Would be grateful for advice on the below.

      Have a tenant on a AST which expired in July and has rolled onto a periodic tenancy. Over past 6 months rent has been delayed, partial and on two occasions unpaid. 2 months rent is missing...

      Unless the tenant has dependent children, some, or all with a disability, and some other form of vulnerability for her/him self..... they will be in a crummy emergency accommodation flea pit or a dumpy flat in a place resembling the film set of '' Escape from New York ''. They are deluded.

      A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

      I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

      Thatcher's 1988 housing act makes it clear tenant does not have to leave at end of fixed term

      Why help tenant take a council property from a more deserving case? I'd decline to serve s21. S8 if possible... (was she ever late with rent?)

      Ok so it looks like the section 21 notice is invalid as a result of this error. The deposit scheme was not in place at the time of the notice.

      Apparently the deposit has to be returned in full....

      The good thing is they have asked you prior to getting one, so the decision is yours. If you do decide then I would suggest you increase rent to compensate for your loss in the future.

      I wouldn't, but it does depend on what type of dog.
      You should assume your carpets will all need replacing.

      Assuming it's an AST (STA's are Scottish)...
      You don't have to renew the tenancy, just let it become periodic.
      And, you're right, don't renew it.

      To repossess, you'll either have to attend court or pay a solicitor to do so on your behalf.

      If the tenant doesn't owe...
