Holding Over

  • When a fixed term ends and prior to a new term starting this is described as holding over.  Mainly for commercial tenants. Similar in principle to a periodic tenancy and can be used to enable a tenancy at will in the interim.  Fraught with problems for both landlord and tenant as it might be deemed that a new fixed term tenancy or a periodic tenancy has commenced contrary to the wishes of either landlord or tenant to the benefit of one and detriment of the other depending on their respective plans.

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.
