Hi,

I have a shorthold tenancy agreement and i have rented the house for 10 1/2 years. Is this original contract still valid please? The contract has no start date or no end date so could someone explain what type of contract it is, would it automatically be a rolling shorthold contract or should it initially have had some dates on it?
Also should it have ever been renewed?

Thanks

Presumably you and the landlord signed and dated it? It does not have to be renewed,and I am pretty certain this would amount to a valid contract.Given your other query,and the fact that you are leaving/have left,what is the reason for your questioning the contract after so many years? Are you hoping to get something to use against the landlord?

The contract has been signed by us and the landlord yes. It has no dates on the contract i.e when it was signed and commenced and no end date. It was just a general enquiry as to what type of contract because of the no dates on it. And the fact that the contract doesnt mention rent rate amount or date or anything just seemed strange. Obviously it was signed over 10 years ago so I don't remember this. I was a lot younger then and never questioned it.
Not trying to use it for anything, in regards to last query, we made the mistake of removing the carpets as a genuine thought we were helping him and it was a genuine question as to if we owe him full price for the carpets.
Thanks

Things were a bit different back then... not so different, but people weren't as formal, that's for sure... but it's a valid contract, it'll be an AST you'd assume, and it will have moved to rolling... month-by-month, SPT.
