Quote from: jpkeates on October 04, 2023, 01:11:02 PMIt's going to depend on the exact wording of the exchange, but I suspect that, unless it's very specific, it won't really help you.There does sound like an agreement for a new fixed term contract (and probably at the same rent). But unless there was also an agreement that all of the other terms would be identical, it would be very easy to include something in any contract offered that you would find unacceptable. So, without you having been offered a new contract and agreed it, I don't think the agreement is for anything other than a new contract that has a fixed term and the same rent. Which is better than nothing, but it's not a fixed term contract with terms that you have actually agreed.Is there a particular reason you want a fixed term contract? None of my tenancies have fixed term contracts, and that doesn't seem to cause any issue that wouldn't arise if one existed.

Enjoy that. The notice periods are long enough and then any subsequent follow-on procedures too, if you stay-on beyond that and it progresses to Court, that you'll be there longer than a year more even if you receive a Section 21 notice at 11:49 today.New fixed terms are not usually desirable for both Landlord and Tenant. It's obviously security vs. flexibility, but we live in strange times and with a SPT you actually have both, in the real world anyway. New fixed terms are headaches for Landlords.
Quote from: tenant2024The reason for the fixed term contract was purely for peace of mind. Considering how long it's taken for the landlord to agree to the fixed term and the countless emails I sent prior to the 18th of September chasing for a response, and now his subsequent withdrawal of the contract, I anticipate he wants to either sell or let to someone else.
QuoteHowever on the propertyfile account the tenancy dates are stated until 25th October 2024. Would the dates of the tenancy period not show this as a fixed term?
