I would interpret the clause as a legal statement (in a legal periodic rental agreement, the LL must terminate at least 2 months in advance), but the law also says that an S21 termination issued during the fixed term is effective for a subsequent SPT. Hello, I need help and please. I am a landlord and the first 2 years with my tenant we had an AST and the deposit was protected, but at the end of the second year we agreed to let the lease run between us in the form of a «rollover contract» or [periodic lease, as I know now], because the tenant was not sure if he was going to stay or any future project, etc. Suffice it to say that I expired the deposit guarantee and the periodic lease lasted two more years! The relationship with the tenant was quite correct during the 4 years and even until departure, a notice of several months was given by the tenant, the exit obligations were all fulfilled on both sides, etc. and the deposit was fully refunded [£1400], although I mentioned that I had expired the deposit protection, still no problems. Now, 10 weeks later, I receive a letter before the action [presentation] in which I affirm that I did not protect the deposit for the remaining year/years and that I followed myself up to 1-3 times the amount of the deposit!………. Where am I? Advice appreciated as quickly as possible. An EPC is valid for 10 years and is required whenever an owner markets a property or is faced with the potential for a fine. These include the granting of a legal periodic lease. It can be carried out periodically from the beginning or after the end of a fixed-term contract. As a result of these two laws, owners of rental agreements that become a legal periodic rental agreement must receive an EPC and cannot rent real estate valued in F or G without first spending £3500.
If your agreement says «Pay while the tenant introduced by the real estate agent resides in the property» or «Pay for the duration of this contract and a subsequent lease with the tenant», you MAY have to pay. I remember that the payment was considered for an indefinite period for the tenant`s application as an unfair term. I think maybe it was if it was extended beyond two years; If so, it may be a cynical attempt by the agent to circumvent the finding (they establish a new contract and the two years start again). As a general rule, your rental agreement ends automatically if you leave until the last day of the limited time. Some contracts state that you must terminate, so check your agreement. www.simplybusiness.co.uk/knowledge/articles/2017/05/a-guide-to-the-various-types-of-tenancy-agreements-in-the-uk/ By the way, rental agents are often interested in renewing leases, as it triggers their right to a «renewal tax.»
