  • Can we move out now..

    We have been give 2 months notice by our landlord as of 28th March 2009. We are currently in the processes of buying a house and it is possible we could exchange contracts within the next few weeks, do we have to stay and pay rent for the whole 2 month period or I was told by one letting company if the landlord serves notice you can effectively move out the following day....is this true

      On a more pragmatic note, you could try asking your landlord if you could move out on a mutually agreeable date. There are benefits all around - you get to move out when you want to, and the landlord gets to show the house to prospective tenants without you causing any difficulties.
