Recently our tenancy agreement reached the end of its term and during this time my partner has become pregnant and we were considering looking into moving somewhere in the near future, more suitable for our growing family (our landlord doesn’t know we are considering moving)
Our landlord is also my partners boss and yesterday he said to her that she NEEDS to sign a new Tenancy agreement.
I was under the impression that once the term has ended it moves into a periodic tenancy and by law she doesn’t need to sign a new tenancy unless she wants the security of knowing she has a new long term agreement herself?
Is he wrong to demand she signs a new agreement and stating that she MUST do so?
If we can just continue on a periodic tenancy, how much notice must be given each way if we were to move or he was to evict?
