Not when I was a sub tenant. The FBT agreement, which I have never signed, as The landlord did not reply to me when I questioned the terms of it in 2003. However, It is an annual contract.
I see, so you have never had a full tenancy in your own name?
In law you have a right to stay as long as there is a valid agreement. In this case it runs from March to March. Unless there is a specific clause saying you have a right to renew then you are reliant on the Landlord doing this for you.
However in this case they are choosing not to renew which unless the agreement states otherwise they are perfectly entitled to do.
Because this is not commercial under specific law, you have no right to remain.
This means your agreement is only for one year and can be terminated at the end of that year in accordance with any termination clause.
Here you need to check the agreement to see what it says about renewal or termination. It may say you are entitled to 6 months notice, it may say you are entitled to less.
But I am sorry to say if they have given you 6 months unless the agreement states otherwise you have no security beyond that.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and it is certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything about this for you today please?
