    After the fixed term you can kick tenants out for any reason

    During the fixed term unless they are breaking the law e.g. drug dealing, using your place as a cannabis factory, using the place for the sex trade and even then you have to be really careful otherwise it can be an illegal eviction, you can't kick them out for simply being in breach of contract.

    You could be a tenant can move in as a vegan and then start eating meat. A court wouldn't allow you to kick them out during the fixed term as clearly it is unreasonable. Afterwards it wouldn't really matter why you want your property back though you would be advised to say you or a family member needs to live in it not to be seen as a nutter.

    To lay down expectations of behaviour on both sides.

    Remember contracts can be verbal.

    Admin doesn't allow you to be racist, sexist, etc otherwise the mods use their ban hammer.

    You are allowed to be a nutter.

    A contract you can breach without any consequences is not really a contract surely.

    You have minor breaches of a contract. A judge wont evict someone for a minor breach, like cooking and making a bad smell.
