Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

A Landlord has to give 2 months Notice, such Notice to end on the day before the monthly rent is due.

A Tenant has to give 1 month's Notice in the same fashion.

I hope this clarifies things for you.

Kind Regards

Al

Is there a special format or just a matter of putting it clearly in writing and handing it in person will suffice.

Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

The law provides that a landlord can only terminate a periodic AST by
serving a Notice under Section 21 of the Act.
This notice is commonly known as a Section 21 Notice. A Section 21 Notice does
not have to be in a prescribed form but it does have to contain certain
information required by the Act.

A Tenant need only give his Notice in writing confirming the date he intends to end the AST.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards

Al
