Thanks. Its bad news then I am afraid - you would have what is called an assured shorthold tenancy.

This means it can be ended by giving at least 2 months notice.

No, the Landlord can not come onto the property without permission unless there is a good reason - such as to deliver the letter or to carry out periodic inspections.

But sadly the Landlord has a right to ask for possession with notice, given the type of tenancy you have.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

You have rated POOR SERVICE which affects my personal standing on the site, despite me giving you the legal answer.

I have outlined the type of tenancy you have and that it can be terminated with 2 months notice.
