Of if not, as this tenancy just started, can landlord service notice of termination immediately? This is a periodic tenancy with no initial terms. Thanks!

Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.

Are you a residential landlord - i.e. living in the property with the person you have rented to?

Do you have a copy of the agreement signed? If yes, kindly attach it.

Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.

Hello yes I am a resident landlord until 29th February

Is the property you are renting out self contained, or is it shared space?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Self contained

But it is in the same building as your own accommodation as you state they used your bathroom. Do they share any other facilities - entrance, hallway, kitchen etc?

I am not available to call you - but your request is open to other experts.
