Tenants Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a Periodic Tenancy and a Fixed Term Tenancy?

A Periodic Tenancy is one where there is no fixed termination date, and the agreement runs on until the tenant or the landlord give lawful notice to terminate.

A Fixed Term Tenancy is for a specific term, for example, one year. It has a start date, and an end date which are both noted on the Tenancy agreement. More and more landlords are offering their property for rent on a Fixed Term basis. There are benefits to tenants and landlords for Fixed Term Tenancies. The main benefit is the security of a long term tenancy which can not be terminated by either party giving notice.
