This answer was rated:

Hi, my landlord has informed me I am in breach of my tenancy by not giving enough notice (even though I was given legal advice that a month was valid) I believe my tenancy ends on 27th October but I'm moving into my new place on 3rd October. He is refusing to offer an early release. How much will i end up paying and will i lose my deposit?

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Have you now checked the lease and when it actually ends

Hi Clare, I quote from my agreement.
'The tenant may bring the tenancy to and end at,or at any time after, the expiry of the fixed term by giving the landLord at least one months written notice'. Hope this helps.

Hi Clare, do I need to rate you before you answer? Not quite sure how all this works yet?

My apologies for the delay

Yes you were entitled to give a months notice - but it had to end on the 27th October (or on the 27th of any subsequent month)

You are liable of the last 24 days rent - but that does not mean that you are also liable to lose your deposit.

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
