Hi all,

 

I have rented my current property for 8 years and have always signed and renewed my tenancy when it ends.  However, I am now in a position where I can put a deposit down on buying my own property when something suitable comes up.

My tenancy comes to an end at the end of October and the letting agent have asked for my intentions, their option being sign for 6 months or vacate the property (their original email to myself).

I queried the possibility of moving onto a periodic tenancy to which their response was this is not possible, only to resign my tenancy for 6 or 12 months or vacate the property.

 

Is this right? As I don't want to be tied into a tenancy if I have to move to a new property quickly or move to a new property to rent on a monthly basis only to move again within a short time.

 

Many thanks

My understanding is that's all periodic tenancies become a monthly rolling contract at the end. However we were told by our agent that was not the case and our yearly contract would end causing the landlord to serve notice. it will be interesting to find out the answer from someone that understands the legalities of this.

They are Wrong.

 

Typical letting agent don't have a clue !

 

The tenancy becomes periodic tenancy at the end of the fixed term  by law regardless of what a LA/LL say,  you do not have to sign another TA.

Thanks 45002,

 

I did suspect that this was the case. 

 

I want to try and keep things civil with the letting agent to avoid an eviction notice until I am in a position to move out.

 

So my options are to either sign up for 6 months and hope that if something comes up I can drag it out,

 

Or ignore further communications from the letting agent (save for any eviction notices) and continue to pay the rent as normal?

Any notice to seek possesion would have to provide you with six months notice anyway so you're safe from eviction for at least six months. That doesn't stop you from handing in your notice at any time. Just continue to pay rent as usual.
