    when can my tenancy end?

    I signed the contract and moved into my rental property on the 29th august 2014 on a 6 month contract. I asked landlord if i could pay the extra days and then pay on the first of every month from then on, landlord refussed any extra money and said was fine to start payments from the 1st of every month.

    I want to leave this property now, i have been given mixed veviews of when i can actually leave.

    First one is i hand the notice in before the first of the month with the view to be out of the property by the end of that month.

    The second is i have to hand my notice in before the 29th (annerversery date) of a month then i can leave 29th of the next month.

    I am confussed and could do with any and all advice

    Thank you


    What is important is the exact day the six month contract finished. How exactly is the tenancy agreement worded where it states how long the tenancy is for?


      If this is you first contract for the property, and seems it is, you have no need to advise that you are leaving at the end of 6 months, and you could have left yesterday the 28th, with no advanced warning.
      E.G. you took out a contract to rent only upto the 28th of Feb 2015.
      Always tell the landlord that you won't be renewing the contract.

      Now that yesterday has gone ( 28th ) normaly you will have to give one months notice.
      This notice runs from the 28th of each month ( not the day you pay your rent. ).

      But you are contracted to pay monthly in advance, and no refunds are normal, so if you want to leave, is best to give more than 1 months notice.
      You can leave on the 28th April as a months notice must include a full rental month.

      what does your agreement state ?

        Are you saying that the toilet and basin are out in the open, adjacent to the kitchen? Or are they in a separate room?

        Does the room have a window? Or a fan ventilator?

        It's had to visualise exactly what you mean. Could you sketch a simple floorplan and upload that here p...

        A rented flat with a toilet (of course) and basin next to the kitchen, and a bedroom with a quite small en suite - shower/basin/rail for towel ... Is this acceptable in a flat - with no additional separate bathroom?

        Flat consists of 1 bedroom en suite, hallway, lounge,...

        Thank you Lawcruncher.

        Just so I am not reading the lease wrong. Executed as a deed means that it has to say that and be witnessed by a 3rd party right?...

        I have rented my house to a {name removed} who use it to house Asylum seekers from a govt contract. In June the flat roof developed a leak and they asked me to fix it which I did the next day. 6 months later I get a bill for £1900 for scaffolding, asbestos survey, party wall agreement & for some...

        I'm trying to assist a family member who is in the process of surrendering a lease on a shared flat (all tenants moving out). The landlord agreed as the reasons were reasonable. He's sent an email stating that there will be costs that the tenants have to meet, charged by the letting agent...

        But if you had a valid certificate when the tenancy started but failed to give it to the tenant, then I believe that providing them with a current certificate before serving S21 will be OK....

      • Gas certificate fail
        by ReginaPhalangi
        We've been renting out our property since 2017 and now have given notice to our tenants to leave. However we have just realised that we have failed to get a gas certificate during their tenancy. Is it possible to get the gas certificate now? Would we need to give notice again after we issue the gas...

        There are a number (of the order of 20) of grounds under which possession can be sought. See the Housing Act 1988.

        The claim is for the period for which they were paying rent whilst there was no required licence in place, up to a maximum of 12 months. Getting a licence ends...

        That depends on when the tenancy started.

        Or, possibly, the one in place when it is given to the tenant. The regulations are ambiguous...

        4. Antisocial behaviour…..a fair and consistent approach to everyone. No. 4 is then not mentioned in the extended information (click link). Surely this needs explaining in detail or, maybe, they haven’t actually thought further that the nine words used. No surprise.
