Tenant Reform not to be retrospective?

Ordinarily a Statutory Periodic Tenancy kicks in after the initial, usually six month, term, which, owing to relatively recent Court cases, is the creation of a new tenancy and from when all new legislation applies. If however you have made provision within the written agreement for the tenancy to become Contractually Periodic, this is a straight continuation of the original agreement and new rules generally do not apply. Perhaps time to re-sign those tenants without Contractual Periodic clauses in the near future...?... Read More

Since October 2015 the tenant is entitled to a proportionate repayment of rent paid (i.e. the return of any 'unused' rent) in the circumstances set out S.40 of the Deregulation Act...

After section 21B of the Housing Act 1988 insert—

“21C Repayment of rent where tenancy ends before end of a period
(1) A tenant under an assured shorthold tenancy of a dwelling-house in England is entitled to a repayment of rent from the landlord where—
(a) as a result of the service of a notice under section 21 the tenancy is brought to an end before the end of a period of the tenancy,
(b) the tenant has paid rent in advance for that period, and
(c) the tenant was not in occupation of the dwelling-house for one or more whole days of that period.

(2)The amount of repayment to which a tenant is entitled under subsection (1) is to be calculated in accordance with the following formula: R x D/P where—

R is the rent paid for the final period;
D is the number of whole days of the final period for which the tenant was not in occupation of the dwelling-house; and
P is the number of whole days in that period.

(3) If the repayment of rent described in subsections (1) and (2) has not been made when the court makes an order for possession under section 21, the court must order the landlord to repay the amount of rent to which the tenant is entitled.

(4) Nothing in this section affects any other right of the tenant to a repayment of rent from the landlord.... Read More

If I were a member, I would absolutely insist on every Director/Manager being a LL themselves. I really hope it doesn't, but I expect it will become very political and the management will be muscled in on by those with political aims/affiliation.... Read More

The S.8 agreement part is unnecessary because (presuming the tenant does indeed pay 'on time' - as in two days after the official date), any claim for arrears under a S.8 would be gone by the time it got anywhere.... Read More
