Hi all,

I moved out of my house where I had several lodgers in with me. When each first moved in I signed a lodgers agreement/licence with each. Now that I moved out am I correct in assuming each lodger now becomes a tenant on a periodic AST by default? The property is a fully licensed HMO now.

Would there be a minimum term (Initial Period) by default? 6 months/12months?

Is there any benefit in signing new AST's now? My understanding is this would then give them 6 months when they can't be evicted whereas now I can give notice of 2 months (after Covid19 anyway) and not that I'm planning to evict anyone. I'm just not clear on any benefit of signing new AST's.

I will send each the gas certificate, protect the deposit, how to rent leaflet, EPC, so that means I still have s21 available if needed, is that correct?

Comments appreciated.
Thanks.
