Section 21 ban risks hurting tenants

Reply to the comment left by Judith Wordsworth at 15/04/2019 - 10:53
Sorry was running 2 different postings on same issue at the same time. The above was a reply on another thread to my original posting of:-

I believe that S21 is not applicable to "temporary non-secure periodic tenancies", ie tenancies of less than 6 months and only requiring a 4 week Notice to Quit.
So let's all on renewal provide Temporary Non-Secure Tenancies only. I am seriously considering doing this in future on renewal. Yes a bit more paperwork and effort getting tenancies signed but worth it.... Read More

A friend who is renting has a "Temporary Tenancy Agreement" from her Landlord for this very reason.

If its ok for a local council to produce these then must be legal lol

Presume could not just set it up as a weekly but monthly or bi-monthly or even quarterly periodic temporary non secure tenancy I would have thought to save on paperwork. But then weekly might be better as only having to give the 4 week Notice to Quit.
Having found this tenancy agreement I will be altering mine to incorporate some of its clauses eg if tenant doesn't notify of a repair then the cost of the repair is their responsibility.... Read More
