Extension of Tenancy Term (duration)

  • Extension of an AST must be carefully worded to avoid creating a new AST enforceable by the tenant for a minimum of 6 months.
  • If a tenant wishes to remain after the end of an AST for say a couple of weeks to attend a graduation ceremony but decided to remain for say another 6 months, the tenant could legally do absent a properly drafted Extension to AST.
  • This requires careful reference to the original AST for say 12 months to be extended by 12 days say.
  • This gets messy if a s.21 notice to quit has already been provided.
