Tenant Gone AWOL

    The key thing about an AST turning into a SPT is that the tenant must be in residence for that to happen. Tenant does not seem to have been in residence at midnight on the 9th/10th (ask other tenants) so section 5 would not have taken effect. HOWEVER, it would be interesting to know what the AST said about continuing the tenancy because although an SPT may not have been formed, a contractual periodic tenancy may.

    Although it has no legal effect, it may be wise to stick an abandonment notice on the door.

      I like the sound of that idea but because the key has not been surrendered could that imply it has fallen into a periodic?
