Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Why are they saying that they will not extend and for how long do you wish to remain in the property?
The good news is that you do not need to do anything. You do not need to sign a renewal agreement as your tenancy automatically becomes a periodic tenancy by law once your agreement expires. You cannot be evicted by your landlord without a court order and that itself is a complicated and costly process.
Only a court may evict you by granting a possession order to your landlord.
You may inform your landlord that you have taken legal advice and cannot be evicted without a court order under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977, so if your landlord does not agree to granting a 6 months extension to you, you will not move out of the property without a court order. You may also speak to your local council's property department and they will confirm this and offer you support if need be.
All the best. Please leave a positive rating if this is helpful.
They MUST go to the court to evict you (kick you out).
Yes, even if no lease extension, you still have a right to continue living in the property. You need to pay rent as usual of course.
All the best
No it does not affect your credibility as you are protected by the law. Please leave a positive rating as your questions have been answered and I am going offline shortly to go to court. Thank you.
