IHello, I have a question becuase my contract Has finished about 2 months ago and my Agent has not given me a new contract, can he kick me out? Also when  something doesn't work he says to try to repair and he doesn't want to fix it or buy. He didn't answer the phone and reply to my text message.

Good morning Jessica,

Thank you for joining us on the forum, sorry for the delay in our reply. 

If your contract has finished it's fixed term then you would now be on a rolling contract or statutory periodic. This means that your contract runs month by month. The terms of your original contract still apply and yourself or the agent must give the notices if they wish you to move out or you wish to move out as detailed within the contract, usually 1 or 2 months notice. 

If a landlord or agent would like to regain possession of their property (through no fault of yours) then they may choose to issue a section 21 notice, this is an official notice that would give you a time frame to vacate the property. 

If you paid a deposit, this would still need to be protected by your landlord or agent and they may issue with new paperwork for this depending who they have protected your deposit with. (They should have told you at the beginning of your tenancy if you paid one.)

If there are issues with the property that need repair then depending on the issue it may be the landlords responsibility to fix these. If this is the case they should reply to your messages as this is part of their responsibility as a landlord or agent. 

In summary, you don't have to worry if you haven't received a new contract, a new contract does not have to be re-issued after the initial contract length but be aware that the terms of the original contract still apply regarding either party giving notice.

Your agent or landlord should reply to your messages regarding your maintenance issues and if they do not you have the ability to escalate issues to your local council. If you would like to provide details of the issue we may be able to assist with advice but otherwise I hope you get everything resolved soon. Smile

Hi Jessica, have a look at the NLCE's new maintenance reporting system; http://nlceuk.co.uk/maintenance-issue It sounds like it's just what you need. Hope this helps.
