Thanks Alex, I have a commercial tenancy outside of the L&T Act 1954 and therefore no right to renew on expiry at 31st December ...the landlord states they won't renew the lease, does the landlord still have to serve a notice to quit despite this or simply tell me to go by email as this is what they've done?
Thanks so much
What does it say about termination etc?
HI...they simply say they wont renew the lease and told me so in an email.
..oh and sorry to vacate and leave the premises empty, we're arguing about dilapidation's
Ok - let me look a few things up
Does the tenancy require notice to be given etc?
...as far as I know only if inside the act but that's question I ask , if it's outside the is notice required?
...nothing withing the lease to say
..apart from to yield up on expiry etc etc
Thank you. So it does say yield upon expiry
If it did not say that then they would have to give you notice, as per the terms of the contract.
But at the end of the contract you have a tenancy at will - this means you can be evicted at any time
But if you refuse to leave then they can't just come in and change the locks, they would need a Court order
It is only when you are in arrears can a Landlord just walk in and take possession
But as it stands the Landlord does not have to give notice because the agreement says you should give up the property.
But if you dont a Court order is needed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks so much Alex , that's exactly what I needed , I've always paid the rent on time and will continue to do so.
..and now I know they need the court order , that's great , I guess I can't really defend that and the order would be final, is there a time scale for leaving with such an order?
Probably around 1 month I think
Does that help?
Thanks so much Alex...best wishes Alistair,,,:-)
