I use a rolling contract for all my properties as my tenants are all local and tend to be long term, I have a 2 months notice period after the 6 month period and let the lease run on a rolling basis never had a problem doing it this way for 10 years.
However a word of warning, I have just found out that due to the changes in council tax law making us liable to pay the council tax from when the tenancy is up this only goes up until the end of the 6 month short Hold Tenancy agreement.
Believe it or not if the Tenant gives you notice at the end of the tenancy and does not pay the council tax it is the landlords responsibility because the tenant no longer has a Material Interest in the dwelling and if they do a runner even having given notice you are liable for council tax but you are not able to take control of the property until the notice period is up.
