Hello, I am a lawyer of over 15 years experience I will help you with this. Your tenancy does sound like an AST which would entitle you to 2 months notice as a periodic tenant. However you refer to a licence in your question. Wlicence is a lessxecure interest than a tenancy. Was your original agreement described as a licence? Even if it is so described it will not necessarily mean that you are not a tenant.
Yes, the front page of the agreement does say 'A License for shared occupation of a furnished house or flat - non resident owner'.
Does that mean then that i will only get 4 weeks notice and the 60 days minimum notice does not now apply?
Not necessarily. Basically if you have had exclusive possession of your home for a term at a rent then you will very likely be a tenant with an AST and entitled to 2 month's notice. Can you give me some more detail about the nature of your agreement. Did your landlord have a right to come into your property and did he exercise it?
