Tenancy Agreement Ending

It`s also because I wasn`t in the country that day. It could keep the keys longer and actually not go in a new month`s rent. Sometimes a tenant does not leave the property when the lease is completed. There might be different reasons for this. The landlord should try to contact the tenant to find out why they did not move. I have a tenant in a 6-month lease that ends on March 24, 2017. A week ago, he sent a renewal application. I gave the tenants the choice to extend for another 6 months or periodically. He asked for a periodical. Everyone agreed on the same conditions, etc. Today, I receive (through Denbot) the news that he now wants to move on March 25, since he has lived elsewhere. I let him know that I needed a one-month delay for him to be responsible for the rent until April 24, 2017.

If he had not asked and agreed to renew. I wouldn`t hold him. But I don`t think 10 days` notice is fair. I`m not in the country that day. I`m being unreasonable???? Section 8 can be served at any point during a lease, but in many cases it is easier and more convenient to use section 21 to get rid of an unsering tenant. The reason is that Section 8 does not guarantee evacuation/possession. A tenant can choose to ignore the notification and remain in quality, and then the case can inevitably end up in court for the judge to decide your fate. Unfortunately, the result may not be in your favor, and therefore side by side with the tenant and grant them the right to stay in the property.

For the most part, the whole situation could last several months and you can`t even get the desired result. I`ve never been in that situation, but it happens, and I guess it`s really soul destroying. But back to my first point. The DPS said that they did not have to send me a message, that the lease was ending and that they could move that day without penalty. This is especially important if neither the landlord nor the tenant has terminated the contract. Some leases have “break clauses” where landlords and tenants have the option of terminating the lease prematurely. Personally, I don`t understand the point of the break clauses, because if you want to have one, you can only have a 6-month lease (that`s the minimum term that can be a guaranteed short-term lease). In any case, the terms of the break clause often depend on the terms of the lease. On the GOV website regarding the conditions to be fulfilled to terminate a lease: the person terminating the contract must use the correct form and respect the corresponding notice period.
