Fixed term tenancy

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

You have a right to begin eviction proceedings against your tenants. In some cases, you may have to have reasons for evicting a tenant. In other cases, you will simply have to follow the correct legal process.

Tenants who are subject to a fixed term agreement should not move out until that term has passed. However, that may not stop a tenant trying to leave the property before the term expires. If this happens, it may be best to negotiate an exit agreement with your tenant that reimburses you for any out of pocket costs.

You are not required to serve a Notice to Quit to bring a fixed term agreement to an end, but you should write to your tenants to find out whether they intend to stay in the property or move on. Finding out your existing tenants' intentions will help minimise the risk of void months, where no rent is paid.
