I have a fixed period (1 year) assured shorthand tenancy

Resolved Question:

I have a fixed period (1 year) assured shorthand tenancy agreement that is due for renewal by my tenants on the 1st August. However, they would like to renew and I do not wish to do so. Can I just write saying that I do not intend to renew their contracts (providing over 2moths notice) or do I still have to raise an eviction/repossession notice when the contract is naturally coming to an end anyway? All the examples I can find appear to be cases when a landlord wishes to repossess a property early rather than when the contract naturally ends.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

No. You need to serve a S.21 notice.

You need to do it properly and there may be a form for this.

You can read more information at:

You cant end it early, only when the fixed tenancy ends on 1st August.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
