    In the case that I move on the last day of the fixed term, which is what I’m going to do, what grounds do I stand though?

    My landlady emailed me saying ‘if you gave me a written notice you would have told me. You are being less than honest. I do not believe you.’

    I dint understand how how you can simply suggest I haven’t handed my one month notice as surely every landlord could pull the same trick to gain another months rent.

      I have always followed the tenancy agreement and payed on time every month and have never caused any trouble, despite the fact that on multiple occasions she has gone against the tenancy agreement. Last month she charged me £35 to send an email to the estate agent whom required a reference for my new property, refusing to give it over the phone so I had to pay, now she’s is trying to do me out of another months rent.

        Have you asked her for her address? By law she is required to give it to you.

        You've got the info, you have to decide if you are going to leave and argue your case if she tries to claim against your deposit (remember that most deposit adjudicators appear to favour the tenant) or cave and give her an additional months notice.

        I know what I'd be doing.

          I haven’t asked since the tenancy agreement states in it to give notice at to the address on the tenancy, which is the post box I addressed it too. I can ask for her address now, but it has gone past the date I was required to give the notice, so there would be no point issuring one to her personal address as she will most likely claim that, as with the other one, she never received it.

          I am definately not handing over any money nor staying another month, I will let her take it to court, I’m just hoping I have a leg to stand on. I would be very unhappy paying another months rent considering I have given the correct notice following the tenancy agreement

            "I did. That's the whole point of the written notice which I gave you by leaving it at the address for service specified in the tenancy agreement, to tell you we are ending the tenancy on the date specified. ........ (since I'm in a pissy mood right now) ....... What the hell else do you think a notice is for? I don't give a damn whether you believe me or not. I gave you notice in accordance with the tenancy agreement. The tenancy will thus end on XYZ. Either agree a time to accept the keys back, or I'll post it through the letter box."

            Then (later) if you are sure she never gave you the deposit prescribed information, sue her for a penalty.

              It appears to me that he does not need to do this because he gave valid notice to end the tenancy (one month notice ending 08/10/18 to the landlord's address which he was given), and then kindly messaged and emailed the landlord to advise that notice had been given in accordance with the tenancy agreement.

                If all is as you have said, then you do:
                1. You provided notice to end the tenancy in accordance with the agreement to the address specified in the agreement.
                2. You also, but did not need to, helped the landlord by texting and emailing to say what you had done because you realised she may not be in a position to access the notice immediately.

                  Yes, that’s true.

                  Although a witness statement from another resident in the block who saw you post the notice in your landlords’ letterbox wouldn’t hurt.

                    Even if you were my opinion would stay the same, i think that given it is a converted house the noise isolation and other issues are not the same a separate purpose built flats, so having one as a rental will have far more of an impact upon the other owners who live there. It really is a one way street...

                    Not sure if this is the best section to post in, so please move if it is considered best place elsewhere.

                    I have had ownership of a flat, one of just four in a converted house, for many years. There is a simple flat management structure; the four owners are directors and have one share...

                    This is not my understanding - perhaps others can clarify. I thought you had to give your usual notice if you were leaving before the end of the LLs notice period....

                    Hi All, I have been living in the same house for 7 years and have just been served a form 6A giving 4 months notice to vacate. The owner is returning from overseas and wants to live in the house. Whilst disappointed I get that this is one of the perils of renting but it has raised a few questions. ...

                    Yes, there are some who seem to have fairly consistent positive performance over a period of years. I would be skeptical, though. Could be explained by them having holdings in a few companies (e.g. Amazon) which have done very well over that time(?) I would suspect survivorship bias.

                    I will post here but it may get moved - but at least it gets a bit of exposure to begin with lol

                    I've used a platform called etoro for 2 or 3 years to hold shares in some cruise stocks (don't laugh) - mainly because we do 4 or 5 cruises a year and the shareholder benefits can be quite handy....

                    I suspect he is a professional scammer, i do not believe anyone can be such a wimp as to be running scared over a few spiders etc, he may be doing this to simply be paid off to leave the tenancy etc. I would engage a solicitor given he will try all he can to get money out of you, offer to end the tenancy...

                    I'm going to keep this short as its a long story. I have a tenant who signed the new tenancy contract on 15th June and then on 27th June I received about 20-25 messages and pictures the evening saying the flat was unliveable due to pests and that he had only moved in the night before. I went round to...

                    Thank you for your thoughts on this. I'll appreciate others' input as well. Incidentally I'm not the seller in this issue.

                    1. youve been given notice, you do not have to give them a months notice before you leave. but do time it so you leave without having just paid a full months rent eg leave on 31st if rent is due on the 1st. trying to claim rent back is a pain and they will do their best to screw you out of as much money...
