Periodic Tenancy Agreement Template

A periodic tenancy agreement is a form of assured shorthold tenancy agreement but rather than have a fixed period of time for the term of the tenancy the tenancy continues until one of the parties gives the other notice to terminate the tenancy. In our standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement template you can edit the term of the tenancy so that it is either a fixed term agreement or a periodic tenancy.

Under an assured shorthold tenancy agreement the landlord and tenant have agreed to a certain rental term. As the end of the tenancy draws near the landlord or tenant must serve a notice to quit the tenancy, otherwise it will continue on a rolling basis and become a statutory shorthold tenancy agreement.

The notice to quit does not depend on any reason for termination since the fixed term tenancy is about to come to an end. The tenant can provide notice in writing one month before the tenancy's end date or in accordance with the terms of the tenancy agreement. If no notice to terminate the tenancy is served, the tenancy agreement will continue to run and a periodic tenancy agreement will automatically arise.

If you and the tenant are not sure how long you wish the tenancy agreement to last for then it can be much more practical to put in place a periodic tenancy agreement. You will need to decide how much notice must be given to terminate the periodic tenancy. This can be a period of months or weeks.
