My self and my two flat mates have recently come to the end of our 1 year tenancy agreement which has now moved to a periodic agreement. We asked for a new contract (for a year) however, our agents asked for fees to do this, which we did not accept and thus remain on a periodic contract. 1) The contract now reads as Void on docusign, do the contents of this contract still apply for our periodic agreement? And despite not having a non-void contract, can they “chuck us out”?
Secondly, one of my flat mates wishes to now move out, we were previously responsible for finding replacements (a verbal agreement). our agents have been very slow in the past about making any changes and responding to us (us to 8 months for repairs)! We are concerned they will not action my flat mate moving out, she is concerned she will either put me and my other flat mate in danger of being responsible for all rent or having to move out, does she have any grounds on this if she gives correct notice etc
