Frequently Asked Questions for Existing Tenants
Fixed-term tenancies are for a specific length of time, for example 12 months, and cannot be ended by notice during the term of the tenancy unless mutually agreed between the landlord and tenant. If your circumstances do change and you have to move out, please contact us as soon as you can. We will advise the property owner, and at their discretion, they may let us find new tenants to replace you. In this instance an administration fee may apply.
A fixed term tenancy automatically becomes a periodic tenancy upon expiry of the fixed term unless both parties agree to extend the fixed term.
A tenant must give at least 21 days’ written notice to end a Periodic tenancy.
A landlord must give at least 90 days’ written notice to end a Periodic tenancy, but can give less time (at least 42 days’ notice) in certain circumstances.
