I have a rental agreement with my landlord with a fixed period of 1 year. It states in the contract that this will automatically become a month by month basis, subject to cancellation under the same clauses that the fixed period was under, after the 1 year period is up. These cancellation clauses state that either side must give a certain amount of notice before cancelling the agreement.
I've been informed by the company that handles my property that they want another fixed contract rather than letting the contract become a month by month one. They've heavily implied I have no options other than to comply and sign a new fixed term agreement, and that the contract will not become a month by month one. I can't see anything that gives either side the option of cancelling this provision, so I'm not sure if legally they can do this. I don't want to sign up for another full year.
Are they allowed to do this?
