We have handed in our notice to vacate a property and the agents

Resolved Question:

We have handed in our notice to vacate a property and the agents have said we have to hand our notice in when our rent is due next which is the 15 of August. There is nothing in the contract to state this, is it law that we have to hand our notice in when our rent is next due?

thanks

Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.

Alex Watts :

Are you in the fixed period or on a monthly rolling contract please?

Customer:

Hi thank you Alex much appreciated,

Customer:

we are in a month to month contract

Customer:

which is rolling

Alex Watts :

Unless the contract states otherwise you can give notice at any time

Alex Watts :

If the Landlord wanted it so notice had to be giving on the rental date then the contract should have set so

Alex Watts :

Unless the contract says any other time when notice ought to be given then you can give it at any time

Alex Watts :

It is poor contract drafting

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

Thank you so much, so we don't have to end the notice on a fixed date as it was never stated in the contract and the contract then went onto a rolling month to month. If you could please email me its *****@******.***

Customer:
