Tenant

Dear experts

My letting agent gave me 6 month contract and did not mention about extension. They only talked about at the end of 4th month we should let them known about our plan and nothing was mentioned about notice period after 6th month.

Letting agents said landlord increased rent now for periodic tenancy. They feel insecure for periodic tenancy. In original agremment

 Letting agents also said they don’t have to charge renewal fees and do not need any changes.

 In our initial tenancy agreement:

It only say about first 6 month and notice period is as written below.

To inform the landlord and the agent known as the XXXX  residential lettings two months prior in writing of there intentions as to whether they wish to extend or terminate the original term of tenancy. Such  notice to terminate the tenancy will be deemed served on the day of the month to coincide with the anniversary of  tenancy commencement to end the tenancy two months hence.

I appreciate if you could pleI hope you can clarify following questions for me

1.If I go for a periodic tenancy and letting agents don’t issue new paper work: Is it going to be 1 month notice or 2 months’ notice period to end tenancy with the property? In the original fixed term agreement they didn’t mention anything about what will happen after 6 months of stay.

2. If I want to give notice Is it a 30 days’ notice from any day or I should give notice only on the starting date of my original tenancy date?

 

Please help me with your advice to understand my situation clearly.

 

Thanks

Hi Karthi

Take a look at this info from Shelter on ending periodic tenancies: normally you need to give at least one month’s notice unless the original tenancy agreement says something different. You will need to give notice on the first day of the rental period i.e. the day the rent is due (which should be the date after the old fixed tenancy ends) – that link also shows you exactly what you need to include in the notice.
