Hi,

I have been privately renting a property since 6th June 2008, when my shorthold tenancy agreement ended a periodic tenancy began.

 

After numerous issues regarding disrepair, being without hot water or heating for over 3 weeks etc my oven broke last week, I rang my landlord (who never answers the phone, he will let it go to answerphone and then TEXT back) who never even got back to me at all. After a week of trying to call and serving my 3 year old son microwave meals I decided that ot was the last straw and to give 4 weeks notice, however my Landlord is saying as I have given notice on the 9th and not the 6th I will be getting charged for Octobers rent as well. Is this correct??

 

Any help/advice would be gratefully recieved

Yes - you need to give a months notice, but that notice needs to end at the end of a rental period.

Oh ok thanks anyway. I thought it was 4 weeks, I know he's not obligated to but do you think its worth maybe discussing with him allowing me to leave earlier than that and yaking 4 weeks notice?

Absolutely its worth discussing with him - just be aware that he may say no, and if so then you will have little option but to accept.
