    T trying to serve Notice on L who won't accept it

    I am beginning to get really worried now, i spoke with my landlord regarding a notice period and said i had to give her, she was saying 2 months where really it was just 1 full rent month. I am now on a rolling contract

    I spoke to her originally on 2nd March saying that i wanted to give my notice in and thats when she said it was a 2 month notice period, i managed to speak with my new landlord and he was fine with that and has dated the tenency to start on the 22nd April.

    So she had a verbal saying that i wanted to give my notice in, ive tried to get hold of her since basically asking her how do i issue the notice in writing to her whether it be by special delievery or collection and she is choosing not to get back to any calls, txt's or emails. I even went to try and find her house yesterday so i could just pop it through the door.

    Ive sent the notice via special delievery now as she wasn't getting back to me, so my worry is now is what if she says that the dates ive put down for my notice isn't the right dates for the period where do i stand with that, she is choosing not to get back to me regardless of what kind of communication im sending her.

    Thanx in advance for any answers.

    I assume you are in England/Wales, and the rent is less than £2,083.33 pcm, and the fixed term contract has expired?

    If so you must give LL at least one month's rent, in writing, to expire at the end of a rental 'period'.

    The periods begin the day after the fixed term expired, so if, for example it expired on 15th January, the first 'period' would run 16th Jan - 15th Feb, and so on month by month. Your notice in this example, if you served it today, would have to end on 15th April (in order to give at least one month, and also to expire at the end of a rental period). And if you moved out on or before 15th April, the tenancy would end and you would owe no further rent.

    If you read your tenancy agreement, there is likely to be an address for serving notices, and also it may specify how notices should be served, for example, by first class post.

        If the fixed term ended on 22nd November 2009, and you posted the notice on 2nd March 2010, with a notice expiry date of 22nd April 2010 (i.e. the date you said you would be leaving), that is correct, and the landlady is wrong.

          If your landlady's new to the game she might be getting it mixed up with the notice she would have to give you as a tenant, which is 2 months.

            Most landlords won't qualify to be able to use Direct Debits.
            You have to be an approved member of the scheme and most businesses are too small to qualify.
            Last time I was involved in setting one up, the business needed to be turning over £1m (or was expecting to and could persuade a bank...

            Has anyone any experience in collecting rent from tenants using Direct Debit opposed to Standing Order? From what i understand, with Direct Debit the payee (landlord) is in control, rather than the payor (tenant). JCould be a good way to minimize missed payments during covid-19. Does anyone know of...

            Why object to exterior redecoration-surely this is quiet and non-invasive?There seems to be most of the work done-now you can sit back and enjoy the improved house.Most people seem to complain because the landlord does too little.

            Hello,

            I am having A LOT of trouble with my LL who is continually asking to carry out improvements on the property. It is literally nonstop and it has got to the stage where I am utterly fed up and want to leave.

            During my tenancy he has replaced all the windows in the house,...

            Well if the market rent for your properties has increased and you think that there would be a good prospect of re-letting quickly and there is a low risk that your existing tenant will stop paying rent altogether then from a business point of view, it makes sense to increase the rent. Having said that,...

            I cancelled all my annual rent increases when Covid hit. Since then some people have really suffered financially and others haven’t. In addition LHA rates have increased substantially for anyone needing support which appears to have had the knock on effect of increasing the rent of properties now...

            Where I rent properties (Beds / Northants / Nottingham) rents have risen substantially and availability has fallen. So my question is still, 6 months on from everyone being told to stay at home and with normality of work returning for many tenants (I accept not all) and many people not unduly financially...

            I did consider approaching a Tracing Agent to try to obtain the Tenant's current whereabouts or updated information about them but the feeling is that it is not worth initiating this yet as its too soon. They may not show-up as having set-up elsewhere yet or have generated updated information about...

            by MR M
            The tenancy is a statutory periodic tenancy after the original AST ended. The tenant has rent arrears and a S21 was issued around 3 months ago. There is no deposit and an EPC, gas safety certificate and how to rent guide were all issued previously to the tenant.

            I believe that the tenant...

            You can prevent the landlord from entering, as you have a right to quiet enjoyment, you can even replace the locks if you would like.

            In turn, the landlord could issue you a section 21 notice, but the notice period is 6 months currently plus the court backlog.
