Statutory Periodic Tenancy

  • HA’88 s.6
  • An AST with an initial fixed term not renewed at the end of the fixed term automatically reverts to a Statutory Periodic Tenancy creating a new tenancy agreement.
  • The same tenants, in the same house, with the same tenancy agreement, is deemed to be a new tenancy!
  • See implications for deposit protection and Superstrike v Rodrigues.
  • This is not to be confused with an Assured Periodic 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.
