    Rolling Periodic Tenancy legal status

    One of my tenants has been asked to provide proof of residency and contacted me because he was concerned that his tenancy agreement has run out. I explained that it is still valid and has simply reverted to a rolling tenancy. He has accepted that, but it has left me wondering. It seems to me that the original tenancy agreement provides no evidence of residency at all, as anyone could produce an ancient tenancy agreement and say it has rolled over, so I am thinking perhaps I should offer to give the tenant a new six month tenancy agreement anyway, or some sort of letter verifying his address. Has anyone come across this before, and what is the correct thing to do?

    well, the continuing deposit protection would be one thing...and of course your letter of confirmation perhaps the best thing....and they have their ongoing rent payment plus any bills if it is a single let...creating a fresh AST because of this would be crazy, you never want more assured period than necessary as that limits your deployment of S21 if ever needed (unless letting is hard in which case you might want to lock in security)

    Thanks. That's a good idea. I have sent him a copy of the deposit protection certificate accompanied by an email confirming that he is my tenant and the tenancy is periodic. Hopefully that will do the trick.
