    If a tenant has a statutory periodic tenancy, the sort the arises automatically, by law, (without anyone having to sign anything), after the end of a fixed term AST, then the T must give at least one month and the notice must also expire at the end of a tenancy period (so unless the T gives notice the day before the start of a period, then the notice period will be longer than one month).

    However, you say you signed a 'new month by month contract'. This suggests that you might not have a statutory periodic tenancy, but a contractual one agreed between you and the landlord. i.e. you and the LL signed an agreement saying that the tenancy is monthly/periodic, starting on such and such a date, with such and such notice provisions agreed (yes, it's possible for the tenancy periods to be monthly but for the T's notice period to be two months).

    It's impossible to advise further unless you tell us what the contract you signed actually says.

    That would apply to a statutory periodic tenancy (section 5, 1988 Housing Act). Yours appears to be a contractual periodic tenancy.

    Assuming this was a contractual periodic tenancy agreement which you signed, then the provisions for notice in the contract will apply.

    What does the contract say exactly about this 'new month by month' arrangement?

    What does it say about giving notice?

    giving notice

    I was signed up to a 6 month contract which when we came to renew were told the owner was planning to sell and so we were put on a new month by month contract which we signed. now we have found a new place to live and wrote urn letter of notice giving a months notice. today the estate agent rang me and said that in our contract is states we must give two months notice! Now i have never had to give more than a month before and considering this is a monthly contract find it strange that we.now have to give 2 months.

    Any advice on where i stand ?
