    Notice required by tenant under ASSURED tenancy (not AST)


    Does anyone know of the notice period required by tenant under Housing Act '88 (or subsequent amendments) for assured (not AST) tenancies.

    Assured tenancy granted 2 years ago with fixed term of 6 months and notice period required of 2 months after that term. Does any statute overrule?


    It's the same statute as for ASTs: A statutory periodic tenancy arose when the fixed term tenancy ended and, assuming the tenant is paying monthly, the notice is one month to expire with a tenancy period.

    If you're the landlord I have no idea why you granted an assured tenancy, just be glad they are leaving.


      As above. See the link below.


        Thanks guys.

        JJlandlord by gum I'm glad they're leaving (no end of trouble). I "inherited" the property with the agreement in place - drafted by solicitor.

          Hi all,

          I am currently in a tenant with a shared tenancy agreement of which the end date is approaching. I do not want to renew the contract but the rest of my flatmates do want to renew. I have given the letting agency notice well beforehand but they say I still have to pay £50 changing...

          • Tumble drier (vented to outside, or condensing)
          • Bathroom with window open and door closed.
          • Local launderette
          NOT so that the moisture gets into any other part of the property (eg on radiators in lounge, or bathroom with door open)....

          Our LA recently (on 22/1 - 3 weeks after rent due date!) informed us that the tenant claims he notified them in December to advise that he was owed a lot of money and could not pay until this was received. No valid reason really, he lives hand to mouth and has repeatedly refused requests to set up a...

          Hi there, hoping for a bit of advice. Have scoured the web pages but still unclear.

          Our tenants have defaulted on their rental payments. Due 1st Jan, and have advised they are unable to pay and can not confirm when they will be in a position to pay until at least mid-Feb!

          I would initiate a MCOL in addition to anything else. We presume they have sold their vehicle, stopped smoking and so on, or are they prioritising other things over the rent?

          Have they explained what the reason is - there may be some sensible reason, but if they haven't even tried to explain,...

          If you don't have access to competent boiler engineers ( plus boiler not correctly installed) then you need some sort of boiler cover.
          Do you have a gas cert ?
          Leaving tenants without central heating in January is unacceptable....
