Despite having been a landlord for over 20 years, I only became aware yesterday of the existence of contractual periodic tenancies, as opposed to statutory periodic tenancies! I am now rather worried about this; when one of our fixed-term tenancies has come to an end I have – in good faith – been telling our tenants that their tenancy has now become a statutory periodic tenancy, and issued them with an updated Deposit Protection Certificate.
However, having read up on the difference between the two types of periodic tenancy, I am wondering if I should also have been sending them the most recent ‘How to Rent’ guide, and perhaps all the other paperwork associated with the start of a tenancy (EPC, Gas Safety Cert, etc), exactly as though it was a brand-new tenancy? Can anyone clarify this for me?
And if I assume I definitely should have re-issued the ‘How to Rent’ guide, could I retrieve the situation by sending the new version to all our tenants now? (We have one tenant where we may wish to issue a Section 21 notice in the next month or so, hence my worry about this!)
