    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

    Yes if SPT already started.

      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?

            It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

            I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
            I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
            I do not intend to live at the property
            Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
            As its...

            I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

            Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

            If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

            That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

            The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
            The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...

            I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

            You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

            I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

            I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
