How much notice do I need to give?


Recommended Posts

As per the thread title;

  • 12 month Fixed Term contract (expired without LL requesting we renew)
  • contract had a break clause at 6 months
  • after break clause, either party could end tenancy with 2 months notice

Are we now required to give 2 months notice as per contract, or are we now on a periodic tenancy so standard 1 month notice?

Thanks

The tenant has to gives one month's notice the day the monthly rent is due. While the Landlord is required give two month's notice, the day the monthly rent is due, served on the correct forms. When your fixed term ended you automatically moved onto a rollling tenancy.

You don't have to wait till the last day. You'd be wiser to do it a good few days early. 

Eg. One months notice. Rent due on first. Therfore notice due on 30th. But better to send it on 20th (by recorded delivery ?)

I'm presuming you can also give notice mid month, and then pay pro rata rent for the last, say, 2 weeks

You're meant to pay the full month and the landlord refunds you pro rata.

Why get recorded delivery? It's not your fault if the Royal Mail loses your letter. Surely proof of postage should suffice?
