If your landlord agrees to have a new tenant, make sure you receive your landlord`s agreement in writing. The agreement must make it clear that your lease is over and that a new lease has been created for the new tenant. It is a terrible situation, but when they say that they have not refused the property and do not want to end the lease, I do not see a quick way to get it out. If they already claim to be harassing, you really need to check your legal situation. If you tell the city council, for example, that you are refusing to give them keys, that could cause serious problems. The inability to secure the property could be considered a danger and an order of improvement could be issued. I am not saying they will, but you have to be aware of your situation. There is a lot of advice for the tenants there, but less for the owners and unfortunately, it is immediately assumed that we are wrong. Did they ask for keys? If you do not terminate properly, your landlord may insist that you pay the rent until the notification is delivered correctly. Your notice depends on whether your lease is a legal periodic lease or a contractual term lease. A legal lease agreement occurs when you continue to lease a property after the end of your fixed-term AST and the lease does not say that your lease automatically becomes a periodic lease at the end of the fixed term. A contract periodic lease agreement occurs when you have signed a periodic AST lease. @Deej This reads as a break clause, especially as your tenants can cancel 2 months at any point during the lease.
If you have to leave before your lease expires, your landlord or broker may charge an early termination fee. You cannot charge more than the rent you would have paid if you had stayed until the end of your rent. Good morning. Our AST expires next week and we want to enter a rolling period where we pay in monthly installments (not the 6 months down payment we have made in the last two years). Realtors have said that the landlord does not want to go on a periodic rent and refuses to accept less than 6 months of rent in advance. Does anyone know where I can find out about the contract if I have to keep paying this amount? And what can an owner do if we only pay a month in advance? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
