My tenant gave me just 8 days notice - help please

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Mike to answer your questions:
(1) Did you use/are you using an agent ? I have in the past but found this tenant myself so did the credit/ref checks myself
(2) did you use a ‘proper’ tenancy agreement ? If so who provided it ? I downloaded it from the internet (I know now that was obviously a bad decision!)
(3) did you take a deposit ? If so, did you protect it as required by law ? I did take a deposit and it is in the DPS as required by law
(4) is the property a flat or a house and is it in an area where re-letting it in a reasonably short time is likely ? No, not really, I waited 4 months to find a tenant last time. it is a 3 bed house
After a chat with the tenant she has agreed to give me a months notice. I have learned a few lessons here and know I need understand the ins and out of an AST before I get another tenant.... Read More

Monthly statutory periodic tenancy notice period?

Reply to the comment left by "Julie Ford" at "24/09/2014 - 12:20":

Can I ask a question linked to this topic? I am a new landlord and I have a tenant who wants to leave : she emailed me on the 19th Feb and wants to leave by the end of the month, 28th Feb. The notice period is not explicit in the AST agreement but it does clearly state that the rent is payable monthly, 17th of each calendar month(which is the AST start date). She paid cash for the first months rent but asked if she could pay weekly as that would suit her working position better than monthly payments, I agreed, though no changes to the AST were made. She has been in the property just on 9 months. She has been told by a letting agency, presumably while looking for a bigger house, that she only needs to give one weeks notice as she pays weekly. I think she should give me one months notice as the original AST state monthly rent payable. When her 6 month AST tenancy ended I have assumed that her contract is monthly and this is what the AST states, regardless of when she actually pays the rent. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, as it is now she has effectively given me 8 days notice!... Read More
