    If your fixed term AST comes to an end on 18 February 2013, you can move out on or before this date and the contract you have with your landlord comes to an end. You do not need to give your landlord notice to this effect, but it would be prudent to let them know that you intend moving out at the end of the contractual period. They may need to arrange an inventory clerk and check out process. This will speed up the return of your deposit and let your landlord know that he has to start the process of repaying it.

    If you remain in the property, even for a day beyond the last day, a periodic tenancy is automatically created and you would have to continue paying rent, give one months notice, or move out on the date specified in the Sec21.
    I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, solicitor or judge. It is simply my experience of being a landlord and what I have learnt along the way. I make no warranty for my opinion.

      You can leave on the last day of your fixed term contract without notice, but it is a good idea to inform your LL of your intentions as soon as you are certain you will be leaving then.

      Make sure you are certain of the end date you have quoted both the 17 and 18 Feb.

        Reading back on your post it would appear that your tenancy runs from the 18th of a month to the 17th of a month. So you would need to move out no later than 17 February in order to avoid a periodic tenancy agreement and another rent payment.

          What date did your last fixed term start, and how long was it for.
          You have given two different years for it finishing.
          Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

            If your 12 month fixed term commenced on 18th February 2012 then it expires on 17th February 2013 (unless the contract actually specifies that 18th February 2013 is the 'end' date). There are not two 18th Februarys in a one year period.
