    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 ?

        Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

        While many on here worked their socks off for years during the day and then evenings and weekends putting their money into property, many others decided to live for the day and have total disregard for the future and what it may bring.

        I'm more concerned at the possibility of a winter of unheated rental properties and then the tenants expecting me to deal with the resultant mold.

        I think the deposit of five weeks rent is more trouble than its worth. Not taking deposits means being a bit more selective in choosing tenants.
        Considering the value of the asset the tenants are trusted with the deposit rules are crazy. But thats only one of the red tape obstacles to being a...

        The daft thing is that because people will owe them the money, it won't even affect the energy company profits.

        Looking after a significant amount of someone else's money is not a trivial undertaking.

        I spent most of my career designing and building business solutions to replace manual processes.
        So I have a reasonable idea of what's possible.

        There's nothing in it but downside...

        As said the idea of simply not paying is in the realms of crazy. They can get a warrant and fit a pre-payment meter to the house without your consent, i understand they will not be able to do this with everyone but the message will soon go out if they target the 1st few thousand, and as said your credit...
