I paid a landlord one month`s rent in advance £650 lease signed 01/05/2018. The LL since then continues to find excuses to explain why I can`t move into a property that says I can have the keys in a week, then the following week obviously I want to move in as soon as possible, then on 18/05/2018 LL sent a txt telling me that I can distribute offers that I can no longer move in, then another text just after the statement that he will return money, but does not know when. I talked to him, I called him, he hangs up, becomes aggressive and now says he won`t reimburse me or let me own. Prior to February 1997, an insured short-term rental could not in fact be less than 6 months. But that changed after February 1997; now it can be as short as 1 day. So no, the dates set in a rental agreement do not necessarily have to be at least 6 months. The third type of case that establishes a periodic rental is the „contractual periodic rental“. These are not common and only exist if the rental agreement signed by the tenant expressly provides for them. If the rental exceeds 90 days, all rules apply as usual. I just bought a property that is rented. The seller was Mrs. X, but the AST named Mr. X her husband as the owner and he signed him.
In fact, just before the exchange, they went into a new AST for 18 months at a low rent – I stuck to it – I guess. Again, it is the husband who is declared as the owner, not her. If the landlord wants a regular tenant to leave, they must now provide another notice under section 21 – a § 21 (4) a (or for tenancys starting after October 1, 2015, the new notice 6A s21).
