By the sound of this, your former occupant of the house is a tenant on an excluded lease, in which case 6 weeks of oral communication is appropriate, even if it would help put it in writing.

Tenants are always advised to have an AST contract with their landlord, but keep in mind that if the lease expires and tenants require a new one, this could mean paying an annual fee and a rent increase. Unless otherwise stated, you are entitled to a minimum rental period of six months. For the first six months of your rent, your landlord cannot increase the rent. If your landlord asks you to leave before the end of these six months, you can defend yourself in court. Talk to a counsellor if you resigned during the first six months of your lease. Tenants can better protect their legal rights from illegal evictions, rent increases and if their landlord refuses to preserve the property in accordance with current health and safety standards. Owners must also provide property information such as EPC for the property, their contact information and address if they need to contact the owner, etc.
While you must obtain permission before you can decorate, the owner should not refuse permission inappropriately. I fired the mother-in-law for whom I paid my rent. The owners knew I would stay and I would pay for rent (at MIL), Internet (directly), food and other bills since I moved in 7 months ago. She told me I had two days to move, which is if I get paid until I get paid. Is that legal? I am pretty sure I have the right to notice 30 days because the owners have agreed to let me verbally pass the lease. The tenant may not have paid the rent or damaged the property. The housing agreement could have been informal and there would therefore have been no lease, for example if the tenant was previously a friend or partner. Your landlord can only charge you your rent if they have given you your name and address – regardless of whether you have a written lease or not. I lived in a house for a year without hot water, no heating, no double glazing in my room, my switch is in front of my door, a stove without lighter on it….. I told my landlord that I was tired of living in a s… Loch and he told me he wasn`t interested a bit and I told him I didn`t have rent, and he told me he told me I had to go down the next day.
I did not get a rental contract from him when I took the tenancy agreement to be signed by all the tenants and your landlord. If there are common tenants, each tenant should receive a copy of the agreement. If you are considering an argument or are trying to reach a verbal agreement with your tenant or landlord, you can get help from your nearest citizen council. Hello I just bought a property and there were tenants in the former owner`s house that they were renting the house without a contract, so I told the tenants that I would always rent the house, but I`m going to come up with a contract, so they`re not very interested in the idea and I just told them that everything stays the same, but if I present them the contract with my laws and the conditions it is known, a problem they told me the amount of rent I want is too much and they can`t pay deposit, so the fees that it has and what I can do in this case in Scotland, in most cases , your landlord must provide a written rental agreement.
