Dear Sir,

Please be informed that a double storey corner house has been rented for the past two years at RM 3200/- which was slightly below market price. The tenancy period has expired one year ago.  A verbal extension was given for a period not specified. The rental amount remained the same. The rental extension for a year will end in August 2015.

The tenant has been paying rental on a delayed period sometime even two weeks. The Landlord has to chase the tenant to get the rent.

Meanwhile the Landlord has decided to increase the rent to Rm3600/- which is considered fair. The Landlord has requested for Bank standing order. However the tenant does not want a bank standing order which I believe is going to cause problem in paying the rent in time.

The landlord has decided to terminate the tenancy. The tenant is not responding to phone calls or sms.

In the earlier agreement the tenancy has given a option to give two month's notice in case the tenant wants to leave.

However nothing is stated in the Agreement regarding termination of tenancy by the Landlord.

Now the Landlord wants to give two months notice to the Tenant to vacate the premises.

Is the Landlord within the law to do so.

I am the Estate Agent who brokered the deal. The Landlord is considered very considerate but the Tenant is quite evasive.

Could you give your best advice.

Thank you.  Verification Code 519039

Why worry so much about law?
Give Notice to Terminate first, see what happens.
It could be the tenant is also agreeable to the termination.
