    T has given one month notice today on monthly periodic- one months notice from today?

    Hello all,

    T has given one months notice today on the monthly periodic T.

    If I accept that today does that mean 16th Feb or 17th of Feb that is the end date? As in does the day of notice count in the month?

    Just checking.

    Also as the rent is payable on the 6th of each month is the period 6-16 (or 17) done on a pro-rata basis?

    Many thanks

    The rent payable date is irrelevant, unless it also happens to be the date that the tenancy went periodic. If it happened to go periodic on the 6th then tenant needs to give you at least one months notice so as not to expire before the end of a periodic period.

      As advised above, the notice is 'at least 1 month' and ends at the end of a tenancy period.

      When did the fixed term expire?

        Hi thank you.

        the fixed term expired 5th August.

        So the end of each monthly period is the 5th of the month.

        So the notice given today means that he is giving notice for the end of tenancy being 5th March?

        The at "least one month" part encompassing from now until Feb 5th and then the month being 5th feb- 5th march?

          Well it's technically the 6th February-5th March inclusive.

          Yes the at least one month basically means you need to have an entire period of notice. It saves on accounting headaches!

            Thank you very much for your reply. The end date is basically the day before in the month that the agreement started...start on 6th of month therefore end date is 5th of whatever month.

            Could I be nice and agree that he could leave earlier as I think he is under the impression that notice starts today and he can go 4 weeks from now or am I creating problems? I guess it depends if I would be able to replace him etc

              You're always perfectly entitled to terminate an agreement via mutual negotiation at any time. You could simply draw up a surrender document, or accept the faulty notice served.

                  If the T has been a reliable, long term T, and it's likely to be easy to find a replacement T, I'd probably be 'nice' and accept a defective notice.

                  If the T has been a pain in the neck, then I'd advise him that his notice must give at least one calendar month and expire at the end of a tenancy period, i.e. 5th March.

                  The date of service of the T's notice is not included in the notice period. [Notice to quit requirements aside] a one month notice given on 16th January expires at midnight of 16th Feb, i.e. 17th Jan - 16th Feb inclusive.

                    Interesting, but it sounds like the university is definitely exceeding its authority and a clued up student could easily challenge any sanction they tried to impose.

                    Hi,

                    I have a question to which I suspect I know the answer, but I'll ask it anyway.

                    We live in a house whose garden backs onto other gardens. One of those houses is let to a group of students.

                    The students are given to making noise in their garden, particularly...

                    As Artful says, you'll need to read your contract with the letting agency to see how and when the contract can be terminated.




                    It seems more likely that your friend signed a new 12 month fixed term contract in January than the the tenancy agreement having an abnormally...

                    2 questions. I rent my BTL property through a letting agent. The current tenant has handed notice in. Am I right in saying I can now leave this letting agent?

                    Second question, the.reason I'm leaving the agent is because a very good friend of mine would like to rent he property. If she wants...

                    Landlords in this position strongly advised to speak to Home Office Landlord Visa section in the first instance. You many experience a 'to-ing and fro-ing' between that section and the Landlords 'Right to Rent' section. See what they both say. They should both be advising...

                    My tenant has been on a periodic agreement since September 2016. He has been a good tenant. His partner who was with him when he first rented left the property and was not replaced.
                    He is now on a periodic agreement. I have not raised the rent since September 2016.

                    I think there's some date confusion above. If your 6 month fixed term tenancy began on 9 December, then it ends on 8 June. If you leave by midnight on that day then there will be no penalty or advance notice required. If you stay beyond this time a statutory periodic tenancy will arise. S5(5) of the...
