    And you're right, there is information on the links thank you, however it says that we could be served with a section 8 with 7 14 days- 2 months notice, that's a pretty big difference, so I'm trying to understand how it works and what case he has to get us out sooner rather than later if any!

    In that case, then I would today just try and negotiate with him. It is within his best interest to have someone in there until he sells, there is no point in having an empty rental.

    As for the rent, no it would have to be the equivalent of 2 months for a statutory eviction and then it would have to go to court and then the court would have to give you notice.

    Try to talk to him, you want to leave but not until January. He had offered a free month so see if he will put that back on the table.

    There are no reasons why he can serve you a section 8 and even if he did, he could not come around and kick you out after two weeks. He would then have to court and if you did not come under any of the statutory reasons then he would have to argue his case.
    To terminate a fixed term tenancy, landlords need to use one of the common mechanisms, if any of them applies:

    Serve a section 21 eviction notice with a date taking effect on the last day of the fixed term and a minimum of two months between the date it is served and the date it takes effect

    Serve a section 8 eviction notice if the tenant has breached the tenancy agreement (e.g. has entered into rent arrears)

    Obtain a possession from the court and have the county bailiffs to enforce it upon the evicted tenants

    Make use of a special “break clause” in the tenancy agreement that allows them to end the contract early


    He wants you out, but to make you leave is going to cost him time, effort and money. SO it is within his best interest to come to some sort of arrangement.

    NOTHING is going to happen quickly if he goes for eviction. Again, I am no expert but so I am sure you will get some more advice coming along later.

    I have just taken five mins to read your posts on the other site. You have been given clear advice but you keep asking the same question.

    I wish you well, however, I am out.

    If I had been given clear advice, I wouldn't waste my time asking for clarity. The .gov website and the hundreds of other sites say different things. Some say he can give as little as 7 days notice, some say 2 months. Thanks for your input so far.
