    Notice period

    Hello,

    Just a quick question.

    I am on a periodic tenancy contract. I pay rent on 14th of each month through to the 13th of the next month.

    I want to move house and give notice to leave the property.

    If I give notice on 9th May this month, does that mean I can legally move out on 13th June? I have seen conflicting answers to it. Some of them suggest I should have given notice on 30th April.

    The tenancy agreement says 'If the tenant gives notice to leave the property at the end of a fixed term, or at any later date, they must give a month's notice' 'For a periodic tenancy, any notice given must end on the date on which the rent is due' or something similar.

    Thanks for any advice you can give on this.

    Josh

      The rent due date is academic, your notice must be a minimum of a month, ending at the end of a tenancy period.
      That's usually the date the rent is due, but not always.

      The tenancy period ends on the day of the month the last fixed term did (if the rent is paid monthly).
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        You are right, 13th June seems to be a correct date.

        It is possible there is another correct date but if you assumed 13th June when handing n your notice then that is your good faith date.

        Has your landlord or agent queried it?

          Please clarify whether this means:

          (a) the tenancy was periodic from the start;

          (b) the agreement provided for the tenancy to start as a fixed term and then continue as periodic;

          (c) the agreement provided for a fixed term which expired so that you now have a statutory periodic tenancy.

          May we please have the exact wording?

            by shoobydoo
            I used a company called Vilcol to trace someone. They gave me the new address and an updated phone number too. No solicitor needed. I did not have any previous address so had to pay a higher fee, but you already have the previous address so it will be lower. And if no trace, then no fee.

            First post and straight in with a question! We had a CCJ against a bad tenant and can't enforce/ recover the debt because the person refuses to provide their address. The prior address was our property and the only correspondence address is her debt management company. I've looked at address tracing...

            I am a landlord. But not protecting a deposit is foolish and careless. I would go for it, I think you are entitled 1 to 3 times of the deposit so no body will go bankrupt, go for the max, can't see any excuse for not protecting a deposit. A landlord may forget to do something and a judge would be lenient...

            Hi all,

            I know there's plenty of info on what to do when deposits are not protected but I wonder what your advice would be in this particular situation?

            A friend of mine took on a rental in London last year and has given notice to vacate for end of this month. It's through...

            I'd wait until the deposits been returned.
            Unless the agent makes some unreasonable demands, in which case I'd start then.

            Your friend has six years from the deadline to protect the deposit to make a claim.

            Even if the agent is acting on behalf of a landlord, it's possible...

            My tenant was supposed to have left yesterday but she hasn't so this morning I posted my N325-eng form with the £130 for the bailiffs.

            I am expecting the court to take about three weeks to issue the warrant and four to six weeks for the bailiffs to come so about two months or so. She...

            Is the agent the named landlord on the tenancy agreement. If so, go for it. If agent is agent for some other named landlord, you will be screwing someone who has already been screwed over by the agent, so would need a good (moral) reason to want to do that....

            31 !!! Is not young, she is acting like a 15 year old, at 19 i was at war in the South Atlantic, that was young, she sounds immature and delusional.

            As said by others, forget all the updates with her and ensure you deal with her in a business like manner, she really is in for a big shock..........

            Thank you all.

            What I've understood from the replies and some searching from my side is that:

            1) The court fee (£355) and a fixed fee (about £50-£80 depending on the nature of the case) are claimable only. I'm not sure if there are any others?

            2) You would fill...
