When an agreement expires

We asked managing director at Real Property Manager, John Gilmovich for his advice:

“When a tenancy agreement end date expires, and neither landlord or tenant has served written notice on each other to end the tenancy, then the tenancy automatically rolls over,” John said.

The lease rolls into a periodic tenancy, complete with the same terms that were on the fixed term agreement.

“There is no obligation on the part of the landlord, nor the tenant to sign up for a new agreement, which can be negotiated by mutual consent in the future,” John said.

“It needs to be noted that notice periods to end a tenancy differ in a periodic tenancy.”
