Hi Mr Denning
I had signed a shortleas contract for one year, which we did not renew after expiration
How much notice did you give of moving out?
Was the rent paid up to date
on the date you moved out?
It was a one month verbal notice over the phone
Then I have sent a letter which was 4 weeks notice
I haven't moved out yet.
I have paid the last month rent.
Our month starts on the first so I have stayed with no payment for the last two weeks only
Thank you. If you had an assured short holdtenancy and who have simply stayed in the property at the end of the term on amonth by month basis without renewing, then you have what is now known as aPeriodic Tenancy and you can give one month notice to quit.
Provided therefore you pay the rent for that onemonth, the landlord has no claim against you and if he does try to keep thedeposit, either filer dispute with the deposit scheme and/or sue him in theCounty Court small claims.
He will deny the verbal notice over the phone soI would go by the dates in the letter
Does that answer the question? Can I assistfurther or answer any specific queries?
