    AST end - does Tenant have to serve Notice to Quit?

    Can anyone advise if a tenant has to give Notice to his Landord before leaving their property at the end of the 12 month ast period. Or can he just walk away??

    I know as the Landlord i have to provide Notice to the Tenant if i want them to leave, and wondered if it works both ways

    Thanks JG

    As I understand it, excluding break clauses and the likes, within the fixed term, the tenant can walk away at the end of the agreement giving no notice. Outside of the fixed term a months notice should be given.

      I suspect that until you have signed the AST or paid the deposit/first months rent then you have no lease, at any point up until the point of signing the landlord and/or agent can find something in the references or other checks that they do not like and pull out, that is what a signed agreement is...

      by plsdowork
      Hi all,

      I was due to start a new AST with my current landlord (and a new housemate) from August 1st. It had all been arranged by email, with the only conditions explicitly stated being getting a suitable reference. No mention was made of there being an agreement to be drawn up in the future,...

      The tenant needs to understand you won't replace anything unless you have seen it first. Be aware that the smell can get into the floorboards too and is difficult to get rid of. Depending which room it is tiles may be a better option.

      Hi there,

      I am new to this site, so I'm sorry if I have posted this topic in the wrong forum!

      I have a tenant who is demanding I pay for new carpets to be fit to hallway/staircase and one bedroom as she uplifted and removed them due to 'damp'. From what I have seen from pictures,...

      To be exact, the earliest you can serve notice is 10th September, which means that the earliest the tenancy can be ended by you is 8th December.

      However, most landlords/agents don't know the regulations - so you'll probably be OK if you serve notice to expire on 8th November.

      Hello everyone,

      I am in a hurry and in a bad situation.

      I want to move out and my flatmate wants to stay. We are not bound by any clause, our contract terminates by 8th September. I want to submit my 2 months' notice period, she wants to stay.

      The agency is...

      You could sue them via the small claims court for the money.
      You could report them to trading standards.
      Or both.

      Hello everyone,

      I am a tenant who renewed my AST for a sixth month period commencing 21 January 2020. The previous term was for 12 months. The deposit taken in January 2019 was the equivalent of 8 weeks rent and was protected within one of the deposit protection schemes with the relevant...

      Thank you for this. In a case, this does not work, how the periodic joint tenancy works?
      If my fixed contract ends on 8th September and we have 2 months' notice period:

      a) can I submit my 2 months' notice period in August, hence it will end the tenancy by 8th October (first month...

      He has only just moved in and she wasn’t mentioned. I specifically asked who was going to live in the property as we had a nightmare tenant prior to this one. Only just got the house back to a habitable state.
      so yes I think he has lied.
      Thanks for all your comments....
