What is the earliest date a tenancy can be ended on a new AST contract under the latest legislation please?
I understood the first 6 months a landlord cannot do anything (standard 4 months before serving two month notice), but a draft tenancy contract I have been provided states non-termination until after 8 months.
And if during this ‘prohibited’ period the tenant falls into arrears am I still unable to end tenancy?
Tenant also wants 24 month AST contract (but will still be paying monthly) which seems to cut down on admin costs due to renewal at 12 months (unless lapsing onto periodic) and will provide for only one statutory non-break period which also seems good. Have I missed anything I should be wary of?
