  1. Thanks mate I hope you're right, the landlord wants me to stay until the 30th- Im sure it should be the 16th/15th! I am going to get the law straight and send them a nasty email showing them that us tenants aren't invalids and they can't abuse us like this! Good luck with your move, I know how stressful this all can be! Ro
  2. It isnt very clear I know, Its a document the CAB sent to me today I can't find it online, its called " Assured Shorhold Tenancies" from the "Citizens Advice Bureau- Information in England" I can email you the file if you like (tried uploading here but it doesnt work). The CAB also asked me to contact Threshold regarding the Housing Laws in the UK and I've made an appointment to see them, hopefully they can help with this or I will be losing a whole months rent! Love this forum hope it works out for others.
  3. Im a newbie to this forum but i found it because the person that started this thread is going through the same thing as me!! I've been in my flat for 3 years I moved in on 16th June 2007 and my contract turned into a statutory periodic tenancy ont eh 16th June 2008. So what I always thought was giving one months notice on the any date (I did so on the 5th of August 2010) and I can get out a month later, I was so wrong... My landlord said that due to my rent being deducted on the 1st of every month my tenancy won't end until the 30th September! Anyway to cut a long story short, I called the citizens advice bureau and they said the landlord is WRONG as there are new laws that came out as of February 2007 and they sent me an info pack which included the following paragraph. However, it still doesnt make sense to me, can I leave on the 5th of September or do I have to stay until the 30th? ________________ Periodic tenancies 126 If the tenancy is a contractual periodic tenancy and the agreement does not specify how much notice the tenant must give, the notice to quit the tenant must give the landlord should:- · be in writing; and · be for at least 28 days (or, if the tenancy is one in which the rent is paid at longer intervals than this, for example, every three months, the notice should be for that period); and · expire on the last day or the first day of a complete period of the tenancy, for example, if the first day of a period of a weekly tenancy is a Friday, the notice to quit must expire on a Thursday or a Friday. If a monthly tenancy began on the 20th of the month, the notice to quit must expire on the 19th or 20th of the month. Although the first day of a period of the tenancy may be the same day as the rent is paid, this is not always the case, for example, a weekly tenancy may have started on a Thursday, but the rent day be agreed as the Monday. 127 If the tenancy is a statutory periodic tenancy, any term in the fixed term agreement relating to ending the tenancy no longer has effect, and the tenant should submit a notice to quit as described in the previous paragraph.
