Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : So I am clear, your tenancy is fixed until 27.06.15 and not earlier as indicated by the notice?
yes so contract fixed until 27.06.15 but when we signed contract on same date I signed section 21 notice document. As I am not aware of this I just signed
now I would like to leave on 27.12.14 as per this notice
and agency told me that "In relation to the attachment, section 21 was served to you by the Landlord leave the property on 27th December 2014, This was sent because if the Landlord did intend to take the property back from you, he could have easily gained possession and not breached clause 7.10. The Landlord did not want you to leave the property , therefore no further action was taken. As you have served the notice ,you should have served two months notice according to clause 7.10."
as per notice I would like to leave on 27.12.2014 and they are asking for one month rent as I need to serve 2 months notice
But as per my understanding landlord served me notice first so my notice is invalid anyway so I can leave on 27.12.14 and I don't have to pay extra one month rent
Alex Watts : Yes if the landlord has served notice then your tenancy expires on 27.12.14
Alex Watts : Your landlord has asked you to leave.
Alex Watts : Therefore you do not need to give 2 months notice.
Alex Watts : You need to leave on 27.12.14 or pay a daily occupation charge which will be 1/30 of the monthly rent.
Alex Watts : So you don't need 2 months notice.
Alex Watts : Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
2) Agency asking me for extra one month rent as I only serve one month notice. Do I have to pay extra rent by low even agent/landlord served me section 21 notice. 3) Do they have legal right to ask extra one month rent? Thank you, Ronak
Please also answer question 3
Alex Watts : No you don't have to pay the extra month, so no you don't have to pay an extra month rent
Alex Watts : You only pay the occupation charge beyond the notice expiring of the section 21
Great. So they don't have legal right to get any extra rent from me. Even if they don't understand and they do not return my deposit what legal right do I have and how to approach to them? What is most cost effective way to get my deposit back?
Alex Watts : The deposit will be protected so you raise a dispute through the scheme provider. They can adjusdicate for you.
Great. Thank you. Thank you for your help
