Yes what happens is when the fixed period expires it goes into a monthly rolling contract
By law he must give you 2 months notice prior to when your rent is due
So yes, even though it has expired the fixed term he still needs to give you 2 months notice
If you want to move on 14 July you may have to let agents in - you need to check the lease
There is normally a clause saying in the event of re-let etc they have a right to come in and take ophotos etc
You do not have to agree to an open house UNLESS your agreement states you must
All the details about what you can/can't do will be in the leas

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I apologize for being daft. This is our first UK rental and our lease, like our landlord, is very vague. We won't make that mistake again. Is the 2 month notice then from June 6, or is it actually from June 15, when our rent would be due for the next month. So legally, are we obligated to move by August 6 or August 14? Thank you so much for your help. We have an offer on a new place, but just want to be covered just in case. Jen
Yes, thank you so much. I am much relieved now in case we cant get out by July 14. We want to do this in a friendly way, but wanted to be sure of our rights. Great service and appreciate your help! Jen
