    This thread is an interesting antidote to everywhere in the press currently demanding that all tenants want long term lettings.

    No one is suggesting that there cannot be a long-term letting, just that LL should keep options open should tenants prove to be less than reliable. I am sure many tenants would like the security of a 2 year fixed term, the same as many LLs would like genuine 100% reliable payers who look after their property and do not cause a moment of grief or hassle. Trouble is, real world ain't like that ...

    Tenants do want security of tenure. But that means preventing the landlord from seeking possession, not locking tenants in.
    This was the situation before ASTs.

    I have a 2 year AST with no break clause.
    I'm a good tenant with great landlords
    I'm also a living, breathing, fully cooked female.

    A tenant with security of tenure, whether contractual or statutory, is more likely to look after a property than one who does not know from one day to the next whether he is going to have to leave.

    Indeed.

    This is the longest I've lived anywhere for quite some time. My average was 18 months per property before this one and the stress of moving so often really got to me. When I received the S21 which meant another christmas move I finally ended up at my doctors to be told I was grey and shivering. Valium is the only thing that got me through that move.

    My 2 year AST is up for re-negotation this summer *gulps*.
