Thanks both again for your replies.
Westminster what you say about fixed contracts becoming periodical etc makes perfect sense to me. So im correct in saying that if a landlord wanted a new fixed term contract to be in place after the initial one had run out they would require it to actually physically be signed? Otherwise it would automaticaly become periodoc, is that correct?
That's what I thought also about periodic contracts although on spareroom.com it seems that some flat mates seem to think that a replacement must be found before I could move out event when the contract is in a periodic stage. I assume this is just a case of them not understanding how these things work then if it is not the case that a periodic contract could have a requirement to find a replacement before moving out as a clause in it?
Thanks also jjlandlord for your comments. Most welcome again.
Many Thanks, Jarvis
