Can I ask for a tenancy longer than 12 months?

Yes, tenancies created via can be up to two years long. Landlords will specify the tenancy length in the property advert. If you'd like a longer tenancy than initially advertised, message the landlord to see if this is something they may consider.

Many landlords would prefer the security of a longer tenancy term, so it's certainly worth proposing the question. The same goes for tenants. Many tenants are looking for a long-term home and would appreciate the peace of mind that a two-year tenancy brings.
