Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm if you are in England or Wales?
Thank you. As a tenant you have a right to remain in the property until either you leave by agreement, upon expiry of a Section 21 notice or further to a court order.
You appear to be an assured shorthold tenant (please confirm?) and they would need to follow the legal procedure to evict you. They will first need to serve you a Section 21 notice, and if you do not leave upon expiry of this they will need to pursue a court application for possession proceedings to evict you.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
It should state on the front of the tenancy agreement what type of tenancy it is.
However, even if it is an "indefinite" tenancy, which is extremely rare for private tenancies, the landlord still has the right to pursue eviction, but must follow the statutory procedure to evict you as previously stated.
Are you able to attach the tenancy agreement here for my consideration as I have never seen a "6 months plus" period

Thank you for providing this. It is unlikely that you would be able to argue that this is an "indefinite" tenancy due to the "plus" included in the term. The basic premise of assure shorthold tenancies is that they are mainly used for short term purposes and it is likely that a court would agree that you will be on a statutory periodic tenancy as the tenancy has not been formally renewed, therefore the landlord will need to proceed with the statutory requirements to evict you as previously stated.
