Hope someone sees this quick,


i'm giving my notice to my landlord and was under the impression I had to give only 1 month but when I just call them they said they think it's two??

We originally had a 6 month agreement but we've been in the property for approx 2.5 years, cant see anything in our agreement stipulating a time for notice.


Are there any legal guidlines?


Thanks and hope someone answers!

It appears that you now have a statutory periodic tenancy (a rolling month by month tenancy, which comes into force following the expiry of a fixed term, if a new fixed term isn't signed), and so you are required to give one months notice, such notice to end on the day before the contractual date of the tenancy. So if your tenancy started on the 16th of the month, you have to give notice on or before the 16th of the month and you move out on the 15th of the following month.
