    A long term well behaved tenant need not affect sale price providing you are willing to wait for a BTL investor to come along. However, you need an estate agent with knowledge of selling rental...

    There are 2 issues here -
    1) Should you be compensated (rent refund etc)
    2) Should the landlord get away with it?

    Your agent is right that a tenancy in excess of 3 years needs to be executed as a deed, and your agent is not allowed by law to prepare a deed for you (you can DIY legally) - Legal Services Act 2007....

    I think Lawcrunchers point is - yes full notice should have been given, but the moment you entered the property, you accepted the tenancy was over and accepted the tenants defective notice as ok.

    Certainly. If you have moved in and they have already accepted rent, knowing it was from you and not from the previous tenant(s) then a tenancy has been created.

    You now have 3 choices (though...

    PM & JTA, I acknowledge in my post that your suggestions are probably the way forward - but you should know by now that I like to think "outside of the box".

    Is your signature / name on the renewed contract? Your lawyer is right about your notice ending the whole tenancy but I can see a slight issue whereby your notice may not have been valid.

    Can you...

    Landlords are still having difficulty dealing with the 1988 Housing Act, so no, some won't cope. That's why a resource like the landlordzone forum must be maintained for tenants and landlords alike....

    You are probably going to think I'm a right doodah, but it is impossible to serve valid notice on an AST while it is in its fixed term. Therefore you don't need to go back on your notice. This is...

    You do realise that a section 21 notice is potentially the start of a 3 stage process? The majority of tenants leave on the expiry of the s21 but you may subsequently have to apply to the court (6-8...

    A tenancy has not been created, therefore you are not covered by the anomaly in English law that makes a 'tenant' liable for the full term. IF you take him to court, a court will expect you to have...

    amazondean,

    A copy of the tenancy agreement is not necessary for s21 (after all, a tenancy can happen without a piece of paper) BUT it would be needed for an accelerated s21. Mervin will have to...

    That is probably very good advice. Maybe a precautionary section 21 too - the moment there is any sign of trouble you can get the claim into the court.

    If no one living in the house is on the tenancy agreement then it has ceased to be an AST. If it is not an AST (or AT) then section 21 does not apply.

    You can not force a change of agreement upon your tenant. Your only choices are
    1 - agree change with them
    2 - leave things as they are
    3 - evict
