Once I have been served a section 21 notice with a 2 month

Resolved Question:

Once I have been served a section 21 notice with a 2 month termination do I have to stay for the whole 2 month term or can I leave as soon as I want without any financial liability

You can leave whenever you like but you are liable up until the end of the two month period unless the landlord replaces you with another tenant.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If the landlord does then you are released as soon as another tenant takes over.

Can I clarify anything for you?

What if the landlord has sold it
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Then you are not liable. Your liability ends when you can no longer live in the property if you chose.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
to clarify I can leave after 3 weeks of the notice without any financial liability
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No. You are liable until you can no longer live in the property.
