    This stage you can certainly do by yourself and there probably won't be a court hearing. When the section 21 notice expires, you will...

    For a while I sold such agreements - during a sales chat with an agent she was quite disturbed that she couldn't buy one at £12.95 and use it ad infinitum. The idea of copyright (and yes, I did have...

    You are right, section 5 of the 1988 Housing Act does create a new periodic AST upon the expiry of the fixed term. What it doesn't do is give you any guarantees over how long you can remain at the...
