I offered the tenant a new lease for another six months, but with a higher rent, since the rents have also just gone up. The tenant refused to sign and told me to terminate it for two months, while the lease expires next month. What am I supposed to do? Clearly, the 1977 Rent Act null and void our right as a lessor to impose one month to eliminate others than in the circumstances of the delay by the tenants who are a tenant in the terms of the contract. With my partner, I signed a six-month rental contract to rent an apartment. Since then we have had a lot of problems with the owner and the property, the last time the apartment is infected with mice. In addition, I have to increase the rent that the tenant has accepted, so what type of rental contract do I have to make and how should I serve the termination of the rent increase? I think the new landlords want me to stay a tenant, but I don`t know what to do to sign a new lease. Do I have additional rights because I have been living in the property for three years, and would I lose them if I had signed a new agreement? The initial 12-month rent ended a few months ago. In my absence, my friend renewed the two-year lease (at the time he couldn`t contact me because I wasn`t in the country). I live and work abroad and have been leaving my home for two years through an agent.
The agreement has been a disaster from the beginning. You are obviously happy with this tenant or you would not ask the questions. Nevertheless, I would be dubious considering that many modern relationships end very quickly to give him more rights to the property. He can enter if you give your permission without giving you rights. Before you give him permission to move in, always do the full reference exams – he could have been the neighbor of hell in another area, and you wouldn`t want him to be in yours, if that`s the case. Yes, the housing allowance must be notified that he resides there, and this will almost certainly affect the benefit that your tenant receives, so this must be paid as quickly as possible. You may need to check with the housing allowance that they did. I always don`t care about caution and I think, in this case, after the management of the Council gives you an exit, but keeps your tenant with full right.
Tell her that if she was on a Council property, she would expect him to be able to live with her for 12 months before getting legal status on the property and that you would work on the same lines. If something goes wrong, she can tell him to leave, and his safety is not affected. If all goes well, in 12 months you will be able to believe that it is going well, and then you can give the lease. Until then, you have the flexibility that you seem to enjoy. One of the conditions was that the two-month termination could only be served after an initial six-month tenancy period. This clause was also included in the second contract. I would say that there seem to have been several offences, so arrange a meeting with the officers, try to negotiate the situation, but if you do not have movement on your side, you will see a lawyer. I think if you politely say that you are at the end of your tether and if you do not reach an agreement, you will have legal advice for breaches of the terms and conditions, they will be able to discuss.
Now our owner wants to sell the apartment, and we have two months notice – but it`s only a month after signing the new contract. My partner and I have been renting a duplex for 12 months. At the end of that period, the owner pushed us to sign a contract for an additional year, so we did.
