Is a Periodic Tenancy a new tenancy for EICR?

It depends upon the current tenancy agreement but it can be determined by the answer to the following question:

Does the current tenancy agreement state that at the end of the fixed term the contract will become Periodic ?

  • If the answer is Yes then it becomes a Contractual Periodic Tenancy and is regarded as a continuation and not a new tenancy so the EICR’s existing term is still valid
  • If the answer is No then it becomes a Statutory Periodic Tenancy and is considered a new tenancy so a new EICR is required

Note: A Periodic Tenancy is where a rental agreement has expired and neither landlord or tenant has served written notice on each other to end the tenancy and it ‘rolls-over’ into a continuation of the original agreement.
