    Trying to figure out notice period

    I gave my notice to my letting agency on Sunday - I have not yet received a response from them, which isn't surprising as they're awful at communication.

    I've since read my tenancy agreement, and I'm wondering if I gave the correct notice. I assumed it would be one month's notice so put 31/03/2019 as the leaving date. In the contract it states this...

    Terms of tenancy

    From and including 18/07/2018
    To and including 17/01/2019

    Should the tenancy not be determined at the end of such period. it shall continue thereafter from month to month until it shall be determined either by the landlord giving not less than two months' notice in writing or the tenant giving not less that one month's notice in writing that will expire at the end of a rental period

    Rent

    Rent £600.00 per calendar month payable monthly in advance by banker's standing order, the first payment to be made on the signing of this agreement and thereafter on the 000 day of each month.



    So I'm pretty confused... on reading that initially I thought the 'rental period' just referred to a month, but does it meant the rental period 18th to the 18th of each month?


    Thanks in advance

    Your notice need to end on 17th of a month.

    And beware Saturday/Sunday/Bank holidays, it's one month from the date the notice is deemed served, which is normally a weekday. See your tenancy agreement as to how that's determined.

I would be very unhappy about all the smoke but i would seriously consider selling both...

        Sympathy! Don't forget to advise tenants to pursue the agent's complaints process and when that process fails - (I can foresee the future) - to use the lettings agent redress scheme. See here advice from Mssrs Shelter..

        Yes I agree with the above. Make sure you have complied with statutory requirements to ensure any s21 is valid.

        You have been provided the advice by your legal council, if you want them out seek possession of the property (do it before S21 is removed), you need to now moved to the next stage which is put in an application for possession, then finally bailiffs. I would also stop complaining to the T's it is harassment,...

        She wouldn't be able to rent it straight away anyway if you carry out referencing, (which you should), as this takes a few days. I get people to complete an application form too. A lot of prospective tenants are flaky on OR. Some promise to call you and you never hear from them again, even if you try...

        "If the new tenancy is for a lesser rent, the tenant will remain liable to pay an amount equal to the difference between the original rent and new lower rental figure up to the end of the original fixed term."

        I read in a similar post that such a clause might not be enforceab...
