  1. Hi Guys, THank you very much for your replies, I really appreciate the time you have spent. My issues are with the following clauses in the property contract I have signed with the agent, and these are what I cannot get definitive answers on from a legal standpoint. 1) “The Tenancy” shall mean the entire period that the tenant remains in occupation of the Property including any extension or renewal or period of holding over whether by way of memorandum, agreement, or otherwise. 2) (Agent Name)’s commission is an agreed % of the total rent payable for the entire length of the tenancy stated
  2. Hi Tim, I hope you are well and thank you very much for asking. I could never really get a definitive answer on the contracts, so I have decided to leave things for now. I will let the contracts go on to statutory periodic tenancies and look to change when/if the tenants want to move out. The agent will not budge on their fee, and so I don't really know where I stand legally to fight that. Kind Regards Harvey
  3. Hi Tim, Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my questions and for offering to look over my current agreements. It is truly appreciated. I will send you an email shortly. Thank you again. Kind Regards Harvey
  4. Hi Tim, Thank you very much for your reply and for taking the time to explain these points, very much appreciated, thank you. I will definitely take a look into the “Prescribed Information” relating to the deposit as I have never seen anything about this.

If you don’t mind however, I am still a little confused as to how letting an AST change to a “Statutory Periodic Tenancy” would help me in regard to the Agent’s renewal fees
  5. Hi Tim and Robert, Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my question. Having never studied the AST, when it converts to a “statutory periodic tenancy” does this mean it is just a month on month contract? So, at any time the tenants or I can just give 30 days’ notice? Tim, I am not sure what you mean about the sentence below, and I would be very grateful if you could explain a little more for me please. “All that is required is for the agency to re-issue the Prescribed Information within 30 days of the change over” The current agreement with the agents is for the
  6. Yes I have an AST, but I thought they only rolled over on a month by month basis.
  7. Hi, I hope you are all well today. I am very new to the property hub and would be very grateful for a bit of advice, if someone has the time please. I have a property that has recently come up for annual renewal, and the tenants wanted to stay again for another year, this will be their third year. Having paid the full amount of fees to the letting agent for the first 2 years, I asked them for a 2% reduction of this years renewal fees. Any new lets would go back to the original fee agreed. However, they declined and would not offer me the discount, which was disappointing as
