What is the rent date?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Rent is due on first but is always paid on 25th
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 1 year ago.

Ok. That would mean that the notice you served on the 2/9 would not take effect until the 25/9.

However, you would only be liable for one months notice. That would mean your liability would end on the 25/10.

The landlord is also under a duty to try to find a replacement in the meantime and if he is able to do so then your liability also ends.

He is right to the extent that the notice would only take effect at the end of the month but it would only last for one month.

Can I clarify anything for you?

The notice was supposed to be dated through first but it took me a few days to locate them as had no contact details as they had separated the business and moved to new address

It still wouldn't have taken effect until the 25/9

It runs from the rent date.
