We have a tenancy agreement where the rent day is due on 20th

Customer Question

We have a tenancy agreement where the rent day is due on 20th of each month the tenant agreed with the landlord to change the rent day to the 30th of each month and paid a proportionment to make this change, we have not recieved payment on the 28th February and we have been advised by the tenant they will not be making payment on 30 March so they will therefore be two months in arrears as from 30 March
Will this affect a section 8 notice being served as the tenancy agreement states rent is due on 20th of each month, we will however have a rent schedule clearly showing two months arrears

wingrovebuyer :

Hello. Has the fixed term of the tenancy expired please?

JACUSTOMER-911tlxr8- :

yes it is now periodic

wingrovebuyer :

Thanks. If you changed the payment dates after ths fixed term ended, then you should ne ok because each new period is technically a new tenancy. You will need to prove that both parties agreed to the date change but presumably your bank statement can do this.
