Hello, how are you today?
My name is***** would be nice if you could let me know your name, so that I know who I am talking to. I am going to see if I can assist with your query. I may need to ask you additional questions and it is important for you to answer all the questions clearly, so that I have the information I need to give you an accurate response for your specific legal situation. JA is a Q&A website, and this ‘chat’ is email based, which means responses may not be immediate. Do rest assured however, that I will be providing you with an answer to your query today.
The site will offer a phone call, this is automated and it is important for you to know that I do not make calls. I will answer your query online.
Please confirm that you have read and understood this message and then we can begin.
You are not obligated to sign a new contract if you don't want to. And the landlord is entitled to serve notice on you if he/she wants to.
Serving it on a Sunday may have been in order to ensure it's arrival first thing tomorrow morning, in order to comply with the number of months needed to serve on you to end the actual tenancy agreement by the end date.
So whilst you consider it unprofessional, it may well have been done for a specific purpose. Lots of people work on Sundays.
It's a shame that you have been upset by this, but unfortunately it is the nature of private renting that a landlord can serve notice on you.
Can I clarify anything?
