Checklist of What to Do at the End of the Tenancy

When the tenancy has ended, the following should be considered: The notice to quit from tenant Ensure the notice to quit provided by the tenant is valid. As a quick guide, the notice may not expire during the fixed term and their notice must be at least 4 weeks in length (one calendar month where the rent is monthly) and expire either the day before the rent is due or on the day the rent is due. No other date is acceptable.

What Happens at the End of a Fixed Term – To Renew or Not To Renew

Fixed term tenancy In most cases a tenancy will have been granted by a landlord to a tenant for some fixed term. Sometimes this is known as a term certain or initial period but the Housing Act 1988 refers to it as being a fixed term tenancy. It used to be the case under section 20 Housing Act 1988 that the fixed term had to be for a minimum period of 6 months and a special prescribed notice be given before any tenancy was granted but this rule was removed for all tenancies granted on or after 28 February 1997. [1] Since 1997, a fixed term can be granted for any period a landlord and tenant wishes to agree and sometimes we recommend a 3 month fixed term. In fact, no fixed term needs to be provided whatsoever and a periodic tenancy could be granted from the outset.
