Are you on an assured shorthold tenancy agreement?

If so, when does it end?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no renting for 3 years now way say is for long let i we move in 11-09-2010 ending 10-03-2011 i did not pay last months rent and i refusing to pay January rent can way give bed reference if i muve to new place thanks

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 3 years ago.
Thanks.

He can only give you a truthful reference but if you have not been paying on occasions then he could legitimately mention that I'm afraid.

You will be on a periodic tenancy agreement and so he could give you notice for any reason that he likes although it has to be in S21 form and no less than 2 months.

If you don't move out then will need a court order to evict you which will buy you some time but unfortunately it would be at your cost I'm afraid.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

thanks for your help if i pay last months rent but way asking full rent for January rent to then i only gonna live here for 12 days we moving in January-22 to new place don't understand way we need to pay full months rent ?

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 3 years ago.
Probably because you haven't given proper notice.

You are on a periodic tenancy agreement and so you need to give notice of one month on or before the rental date. If you haven't don that in writing then you are liable for a further months rent.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 3 years ago.
If you mean that you weren't aware of the need to give notice then I'm afraid there is no defence in that.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
