The different statuses are:

  • Prospective – A tenancy that has applied to move in, but they have not signed contracts, etc. E.g. they are going through referencing or have put down a holding deposit
  • Approved – A tenancy that is waiting for its move-in date
  • Current – A tenancy currently in its fixed term, as stated in the contract
  • Periodic – A tenancy on a rolling contract, with no set end date
  • Ending – A tenancy with the property manager or tenant have given notice and there is a set end date
  • Past – A tenancy that has been completed
  • Rejected – Defined as a tenancy entered in error or a failure to move in

An”expiring” tenancy is NOT a status, but a reminder of a contract end date approaching. This article is linked to expiring tenancies.
