    Notice to leave question

    Hi, I wondered if any anyone could possibly advise me on the following - I have a letter ready to go to my landlord to notify them of my intention to leave. I had the letter checked over regarding the correct dates and wording its all ok. When I send it and it has been received by them can they request or issue me with a notice to leave earlier then my intended date? Thank you in advance

    Yes but the answer to your question depends upon how much notice you have given and what you have contracted. What notice is required under the TA?

    In effect you can be given a s21 notice which from Oct will need to be 2 months to end on or the day before a rent day. However the reality is that does not end your tenancy, only you or a court can do that, so essentially you will be gone before the ll could obtain a possession order.

    Without further detail it's difficult to be precise. What is your concern?

      Surely no restriction on end date unless the tenancy predates 1 October 2015 (per Deregulation Act)?

      There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

        Deregulation Act doesn't apply in Wales. It applies to all tenancies including the old ones in England.

            Hi All,

            I have recently had new tenants move in.
            the estate agent did the whole thing and put them in.

            The arrangement with rent payments was this. 6 months AST Tennants pay last 3 months rent in advance and then make 3 monthly payments in advance. Ie start of the month....

            My daughter has just moved into a rental property and finds that the electricity is on a prepayment meter.
            She wants to switch to a monthly contract but has been told she has to wait 3 weeks.
            Should the letting agent have told her the electricity was on this type of meter before she moved...

            Just because a property has a satisfactory EICR, that just means on the day of the test it was OK. Just like a car MOT

            She should have a copy of the EICR

            If she is getting shocks off switches - that could be trouble - so yes it needs reporting and investigating

            A tenancy is either a fixed term or it's periodic. This is not a fixed term tenancy. It must thus be a periodic tenancy, merely one where the first period is 12 months long with subsequent period one monthly. There's nothing stopping a tenant from giving notice on day 1 of such a tenancy.

            "The Tenant may...." gives an option that does not limit any other unspecified options that would otherwise be valid.



            "The Tenant" here is referring to all the tenants jointly, so all 3 must agree to give such a notice.

            I've only been involved at a possession hearing on the "other" side (it was my parents in law before anyone accuses me of landlord bashing!).

            The maximum that a judge can give to vacate is 42 days (instead of the standard 14).
            They can award costs the other way, but they...

            Tenancy start date May 2020 in England. 6 month initial AST.
            My tenancy agreement says
            “The landlord may increase the rent after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy…..”
            Is there a specific form I should use?...
