Could you please confirm if you have signed an Assured shorthold tenancy for a fixed term period?
Could you please attach your tenancy agreement here.
Thank you. I will go through it and will be with you shortly.
It is a fixed term Licence agreement . it is not a tenancy agreement.
Licensees are excluded occupants, which means they can be evicted without a court order.
If the occupier has a fixed term contract, they are entitled to remain in the premises during the fixed term.
The landlord can only evict the occupier before the end of the fixed term if there is a break clause or forfeiture clause allowing them to do so.
Here in your case, it is fixed term agreement till 03/09/2022.
Your Landlord would have to check if you are suitable or not for the term before entering into this agreement .
Now, for asking you to move within the fixed term , your Landlord would have to compensate you for your inconveniences.
I trust this helps.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
No, if they want you out, so they have to request you to move and compensate you accordingly .
What does that mean, that you vacate the property but still pays the rent?
It is indeed.
You do not have to leave , it is for the Landlord to prove that you are in breach to terminate the contract.
Landlord can not make you leave within the fixed term.
Now the contract has been effective and both parties are legally bound by it.
Thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
So, it can be mutual termination of the contract, and you should not be penalised for the Landlord's mistake.
Tell the landlord, that at the time of signings , it was not made clear to you that the period of tenancy is connected with your study course.
Yes, you can ask for a mutual termination of the contract.
Yes , sure , if you have any questions in future , you can get in touch by opening up a new post/question and FAO: Vineet S and I will be happy to help.
Thank you. Have a good day.
You are welcome. Regards.
