it is 12 months which was to be reviewed in June 2014
Thank you. They can not give you 2 weeks notice.
Under the Housing Act they must give you at least 2 weeks notice which takes effect from your rent due date.
For example if your rent is due on 1st of the month and they give you notice on 20th July, then it takes effect from 1st August and you have to be out by 1st October.
But if they give you notice on 3rd August, then it takes effect from 1st September and you have to be out by 1st November.
By law they MUST give you 2 months notice.
But if you are in arrears then sadly they can give you notice.
If the fixed term has ended then you are on a monthly tenancy.
If you signed a new tenancy in June 2014 then you are in a new fixed term
However if you do not move out either way they MUST get a Court order to have you evicted, this can take around 2-3 months.
But sadly if you are in arrears you may have to move out, but you are entitled to at least 2 months notice
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They are aware that I am waiting for a large amount from the university which should be with me soon. This has contributed to the arrears. They said that the contracted would be renewedin May when I saw them and they did not send through a new one.
what about if the arrears is paid up in full. would it be agreed in court? Or their outside of court?
Thank you that is useful
