Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

What type of contract do you have please?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
We have NO contract,we know we stay ilegal hire,but we need two months to move
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

Ok - then do not worry, you will get longer.

The notice to quit gives you a month. If you do not move then they have to issue proceedings for possession.
This will take around a month. Then if you dont move out, they get a warrant of eviction, that takes a further month.

So you have around 3 months in reality all in all.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
