hi my landlord refuses to allow me to move to a rolling contract, after my tenancy expires on thursday. the estate agent is demanding renewal fees which i am happy to pay, i am also happy to pay a reasonable rent increase if required. i have been here for a year and have never been late with, or missed, payments. i dont want to commit to another six months as i will be buying a house before then, but the landlord and estate agent are FORCING me to renew my tenancy for a third six month term. do i have a legal way out of this? thx !
No. The landlord insists without reason that a six month agreement is to be signed or notice will be given to vacate.
Its bad news I am afraid
The Landlord has a choice to allow a rolling monthly or to make you sign a new one
If you do not sign a new one he can terminate your tenancy
There is nothing in law that states he must allow you a rolling contract
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
