About Our Tenancies

All of our tenancies are what is known as Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST) and are the most common type of tenancy used in the UK.  The terms of the tenancy, such as the length of the rental period, the amount of rent, and the responsibilities of the landlord and tenant, are all outlined in the Tenancy Agreement. Within the provisions of the AST, we offer different types of tenancies, including those for short-term lets such as a HMO and long-term tenacies such as a traditional family house tenancies.

About our tenancies

A Tenancy is a legal relationship between a landlord and a tenant, in which the tenant has the right to occupy a specific property for a certain period of time, usually in exchange for rent. There are two types of tenancies we offer and they are:

  • A fixed-term tenancy: This type of tenancy has a specific start and end date.
  • A periodic tenancy: This type of tenancy does not have a fixed end date and usually continues on a month-to-month or week-to-week basis.

The rights and responsibilities of the landlord and tenant are typically governed by the tenancy agreement, and are  specified in the tenancy agreement. It is important to know the nature of tenancy agreement and laws to have clear understanding of rights and responsibilities of both parties and we encourage all tenants to read and understand their tenancy agreement.

Fixed Term Tenancy

A fixed term tenancy is a type of rental agreement where the tenant agrees to rent a property for a specific period of time, such as six months or one year. At the end of the fixed term, the tenant may quit the tenancy or the tenancy would typically convert to a month-to-month tenancy known as a peiodic tenancy. However, if they wish, both parties can agree to renew the fixed-term tenancy or enter into a new fixed-term agreement.  The notice period required to terminate a fixed term tenancy during the fixed term is one full months notice and details of this can be found on the Ending A Tenancy PageClick Here.

Periodic Tenancy

A periodic tenancy is a type of rental agreement comes into force when a fixed term ageement comes to an end and a new fixed term agreement is not entered into. A periodic tenancy normally runs for a certain length of time, usually on a monthly or weekly basis, with no fixed end date. The tenancy will continue indefinitely until either the landlord or the tenant gives notice to terminate the agreement. The notice period required to terminate a periodic tenancy is one full months notice and details of this can be found on the Ending A Tenancy PageClick Here.

Rent Reviews

We conduct an annual review of rental rates to ensure that they are competitive and in line with current market conditions. The purpose of this review is to ensure that our rental rates remain fair and reasonable for tenant and landlord.

Rent reviews take place annually in January with a view of implemention from April 4th. During the annual review, we consider various factors such as the current rental rates in the local area, the current rate of inflation, cost of funding etc.  Rents will always be reviewed in line with current UK inflation rates, and on some occassions, may increase further due to other factors.

We understand that rental increases can be a concern for tenants. That’s why we want to assure you that our rental rates are always reviewed with the intention of keeping rental rates affordable and in line with market conditions.

We also want to emphasize that, irrespective of any rent increases, the minimum rental rate will always be in line with inflation. This means that any rental increases will be kept at a reasonable level that takes into account the cost of living. We believe that transparency and communication are essential in maintaining a positive landlord-tenant relationship. As such, we will notify you in writing before any proposed rental increase goes into effect.
