As long as your fixed-term contract has expired or you have been terminated in your periodic agreement, your landlord can evict you peacefully. For example, they can change the locks while you`re outside. Resident tenants have more limited rights to the property guarantee as regulated tenants (before 15 January 1989) and have insured tenants from 15 January. Resident owners have this greater freedom to terminate an agreement because it is recognized that the owner is more vulnerable in his or her own home when the relationship between the owner and the person he or she is renting breaks. Non-resident tenants also have the right to challenge rent levels that resident tenants do not enjoy. Landlords can charge whatever they want for renting out part of their property.
