Hi, could you please just confirm that you have a fixed term Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and this expires on 29th November? Kind Regards Al

I have attached the tenancy agreement. They are asking me to look at item 34.2.
I keep saying i am not giving notice, i am not renewing my tenancy agreement which runs out 29 Nov.

Hi Stephen and Kerry, the fixed term of your Tenancy expired on 29th November 2013, and therefore continues until either party serves Notice on the other that they want to end it (clause 34.2 is irrelevant as it is referring to the break clause in the fixed term which has now of course expired). I'm afraid you do therefore have to serve Notice if you want to leave on 29th November. However, the good news is that under law, the Tenant need only give 1 month's Notice - so- provided you give the Landlord notice before say 27th October, you will then be fine to vacate on 29th November (so, if you have indeed already done this, you should contact the Agents and tell them they are incorrect in their thinking). I hope this assists and sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
