If no notice period is specified, then it
comes down to what is reasonable in the circumstances, and that would be
between one and three months. It is most unusual for a £16,000 per month rent
to be done by way of tenancy will. It appears from what you have just said that there is no notice period, and that you could simply give them a letter and walk out. I find that very strange and almost unbelievable.
This is not a disposition of the property. It
is a determination of the tenancy. In my opionon s2 LPMPA doest apply
If the tenancy agreement, such as it is (clearly
defective in many ways) does not provide for notice to be in writing, then, to
my mind, verbal notice is good enough, but in any event, you did give it in
writing. I presume that you kept a copy. Although expect them to say that you
wrote it sometime after the event. It would seem unusual to vacate a property
with such a large monthly rent and to rely on the verbal notice.
If they continue to pursue it, you are faced
with defending their action in court
