Effluxion of Time

  • Archaic term still found in modern tenancies.
  • Used instead of ‘expiration’.
  • The tenancy ended by effluxion.
  • The tenancy expired or reached the end of the fixed term.
  • If an agent takes on a tenancy with such archaic words, double check the date when the tenancy commenced – if it pre-dates 15 January 1989 it may be a protected tenancy.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
