Renting Faq

Recommended Posts

"After the end of a fixed period the landlord has to give two months notice and the tenant has to give one month."

Tenant does not need to give any notice to leave at the end of the fixed term.

"Reasonable notice has to be given - usually 14 hours."

Not enough.

Thanks. I was going to change them, but I thought that it was best for others to learn how to do this. Anyone can log in and change things:

That is when renting a complete property, renting a room in a property from the landlord could/would be different.

Note that while for the most part the tenant will pay the Council Tax and Water Rates on a property, these may well be negotiable even when renting a complete property. There's no harm in asking. The tenant will typically pay for electricity, gas, telephone, broadband and TV license, regardless of the property. In shared houses, the cost may well be shared amongst the tenant's. The other's on the list are usually the responsibility of the Landlord.

Only a small point, but worth adding.

If a landlord provides TV equipment with the property, the landlord becomes legally liable for the TV license.
