My lease is ending. Can I renew it?
Yes – if your tenancy is for a fixed term of more than a year, or your tenancy is for a fixed initial term and then from year to year. If the landlord gives you notice of termination, you can apply to the court for a new tenancy. The landlord can oppose renewal on one of a number of specific grounds. There is no right to renew where you entered into a valid agreement with your landlord to exclude security of tenure, before taking out the lease. An agreement entered into before 1 June 2004 must have been authorised by the court.
