Renting

Extending a tenancy

Periodic agreements

A periodic agreement continues indefinitely until the tenant or property manager/owner gives notice to end it.

Fixed term agreements

No new agreement: if the tenant has not been given notice to leave and a new agreement has not been put in place, the tenancy continues as a periodic agreement under the same terms and conditions of the original agreement.

No changes to the agreement: the tenant and property manager/owner can sign a letter or statement with the new dates.

Changes to the agreement: a new tenancy agreement will need to be put in place.

The rent can be increased between two fixed term tenancies if the tenant and property manager/owner agree.
